Denominational Connections

Our church is affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) [WEBSITE]. Some aspects of our connection:

Our Pastor

Our pastor was ordained into Christian ministry by the denomination in June 1985, his ordination sponsored by First Christian Church in Iowa City and endorsed by the Upper Midwest region. Bill Coley serves as a pastor in good standing with the Illinois/Wisconsin region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

Youth Ministry

We celebrate our lengthy relationship with the youth ministries sponsored by the Illinois-Wisconsin region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Those ministries have included annual youth special events and week-long summer camp experiences that allow our kids to connect with kids from around Illinois and Wisconsin. One member of our church directed one of the region’s camps for more than twenty-five years.

Special Day Offerings

Six times a year we accept offerings that support various denominational causes and concerns. From natural disasters anywhere in the world, to Disciples of Christ-related educational institutions and many other causes, our special day offerings make a difference.
