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

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.


Evolution of the Call p4 1 John 3:16-24 Thus far in our current series, we have looked at the callings of Moses and Jeremiah. Today, we bring our attention to Deborah and Esther. The call of God can be made known through the circumstances of ordinary life. It might occur while one is at work (Moses), or simply caught up in the circumstances of one’s state of life (Esther). It might be that one’s natural abilities are called upon as avenues of service (Deborah), or that the desire to serve is placed in one’s heart from the very beginning (Jeremiah). The call spans across all time, all demographics and because of Jesus, all people. In each case, the one who is called has the opportunity to make a life-changing decision to respond. This morning we tie the stories of these Old Testament characters together with our stories today. The thread that weaves our lives to theirs is embracing our mutual brokenness. It is the solution of reconciliation: the mending of broken relationship with our Creator. HIS love compels us. HE lives in us. We know this by the Spirit HE gave us. Thanks for being here this morning.
