Disciples Christian Church connects with community

"Connections" Service at Disciples Christian Church

Disciples Christian Church worships in a casual setting with contemporary music on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 11:30 a.m., at 3663 Mayfield Road (at Yellowstone) in Cleveland Heights.

The one-month-old “Connections” worship is offered the third Sunday of each month and is open to the community. A praise band sets the tone for the service with upbeat music, reminding attendees of God’s love.

At the first Connections service on Sept. 20, 65 members and guests attended and were inspired by the music and the message of the “next chance” of Lazarus. Pastor Kris Eggert challenged everyone to live life to the fullest.

“With the same attention to quality as our 10 a.m. traditional worship, we feel called now to offer a different worship experience,” Eggert said. “We believe there is no one right way to worship. All are welcome.”

Disciples Christian Church has more than 150 years of history in the Cleveland area. Members are proud of their heritage and the message they have delivered to the community with their focus on outreach in their neighborhood and beyond.

The church houses the Heights Emergency Food Center and provides a free community meal on the last Thursday of every month.

Connections worship is yet another way to share God's love and celebrate the church's beliefs. For more information, call 216-382-5344 or visit www.discipleschristian.org.

Ron Werman is a Cleveland Heights resident and member, elder, choir member and communications chairperson of Disciples Christian Church.
