Welcome to West End Church of Christ, a restoration church founded in 1929. Each Sunday morning, our family opens its doors to be reminded that our value of Jesus is derived from the value of our brokenness. We are a broken people living in a broken world in need of a Savior.

Our vision: A Place To Belong We believe everyone, no matter their background, is created to belong to the kingdom of God.

Our values: diversity embracing unique differences and experiences strengthens our family

generational roots discipleship that builds on our past and for the sustainable future

grace in love how we treat one another especially in times of disagreement and conflict

personal bible study ownership through study and prayer of our own individual spiritual growth

Thank you for joining our family and know that there is a place for you here. Please let me know if I can help you in any way.

Our church is blessed to have a Visitation Team that meets the third Tuesday of each month. Jan Welden and Kris Thurman currently serve as the leads for this team. Each month, the team gathers to pray over the needs and concerns of our church family. Individual cards (similar to those outlined on this page) are distributed to ensure a visit or a note of encouragement is received from someone on the team. An open invitation is extended to anyone who would like to serve on the visitation team. This is a group exemplifying our church value of grace in love. You can e-mail Jan or Kris for more details.


“Who Shall Rescue Me?� Romans 7:14-25 Addiction is brutal but recovery is possible. God's grace, trust, creativity, honesty, willingness, and collaboration can bring lasting healing to individuals and families ravaged by addiction. Our deepest need is to be in healthy relationships; we thrive best when we are understood and accepted. Addictions are created and maintained when relationships with self and others are out of sync. The church is the ideal community in which true recovery can take place. Recovery is messy. There are no simple easy answers. Grace is needed for those battling addictions and for those helping people overcome addiction. There is hope, there is healing, there is salvation in the truest form. "Thanks be to God who delivers us through Jesus Christ our Lord" Romans 8 highlights how God's grace provides hope, healing, and peace in the very real and difficult struggle we are face: Notes:______________________________________ ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________
