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.

COMMUNION DELIVERY March 20 – Kris Thurman March 27 – Wes Bender

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.


At West End Church of Christ, we have members who volunteer their skills and time to serve on our church’s finance team. These volunteers are working closely with our leadership team to keep an open transparency regarding resources given to the church. We have a very strong leadership team which includes our shepherds, deacons, ministry leaders and staff. Below you will find a general report of our church’s operating budget for last fiscal year, 2015. It does not include our special contributions and allocations toward other ministries of our church such as capital improvements, foreign missions, Camp WEBE or consignment sale. Your continued contributions are having significant impact as our church helps people feel a sense of belonging to the kingdom of God through Christ. Should you ever have any questions regarding the current priorities or stewardship of resources, contact the church office and we can connect you to the appropriate staff or volunteer.
