WELCOME ... One and All ...

Welcome to the Family of Silverton First Christian Church! 

In a recent discussion with a member of the community, a lady shared she has seen we have a very relaxed and inclusive church.  Seems we are following our identity, "We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.  As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord's Table as God has welcomed us." 

One of the many ministries based out of FCC's congregation and facilities has become very ecumenical with multiple churches and other groups and organizations helping at every step.  Nearly 10 years since it was a mere twinkle of a light in someone's soul, the Wednesday Community Dinner is nearing 184,000 meals served.  An amazing 'happening' takes place beginning early in the morning as folks gather to begin preparations for the doors opening at 5 p.m. and the long and continuing line that will make its way until 7 p.m. - to be served and to dine and fellowship.  It has been mentioned that our Sunday morning service is a "medium-sized congregation" celebrating Open Communion each week.  Come Wednesday evening, the facility houses a near "mega-church" - and the gathering becomes something nearing the epitome of Open Communion for anywhere from 350-500+ souls ... for some, this is not only a meal filling their tummy, but a time of social and spiritual filling though there is no proselytizing.  For some, this 'is' their "going to church event."  Every age is represented, many needs are met.  At any table you may find a homeless teen sharing a meal and conversation with an elderly individual, a group from the deaf community carrying on beautiful conversation, a mix of nationalities or cultures, and any and all spiritual (and non-spiritual) leanings from across the community.

It's a beautiful thing when Spiritual Folk come together, listen and respond to a call to minister.  Our "relaxed, inclusive" and beautiful church family finds immense joy in being home to and a partner in multiple ministries.  We welcome all to fellowship with us ... 

Joy to you and Shalom.
