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.

We express our sympathy to the family of former member John Jordan who passed away February 1. A service was held last Thursday.

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.


We begin a new series this month titled Inside Out. During this series, we will be taking a deep dive into Paul's letter to the Galatians. We will discover truths as it relates to relationships, accountability and the Fruits of the Spirit. If you have not seen the movie, Inside Out, that’s part of your homework. It’s a Disney movie representing some of the best of what the Pixar Braintrust has to offer. A girl uprooted from what she has always known faces the best and worst of all her emotions. As she navigates a tough time in life, she learns that the full expression of any one emotion stems from the value of all of them.

In the same way, the Fruits of the Spirit outlined in Galatians 5 are not a “pick and choose” list of traits. One compliments the others and the full expression of each stems from the value in all. We are glad you are here this morning and we look expectantly to what God has in store for us as we gather together. Galatians 5:25-26 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
