We’ve Received a Grant
Disciples of Christ Community Church, Champaign received a (Disciples of Christ) National Benevolent Association COVID grant which permitted us to buy carts for people using our interfaith ministry, Food and More. The carts allow partners to socially distance deliveries while not placing bags on the ground, AND making it easier for recipients to handle multiple and/or heavy bags. Many thanks to NBA for this grant!
Disciples of Christ Community Church (DCCC) is a small “New Testament” Christian Community in the Champaign-Urbana and is a restart of a Disciples of Christ congregation that ceased meeting on a regular basis.
We Disciples see ourselves as “a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.”
We Disciples celebrate the diversity of our common like, affirming our different histories, styles of worship, and forms of service.
We Disciples welcome all at DCCC–woman or man, heterosexual or not, young or old, student or not, lay or religious, believer or not.
We Disciples affirm the priesthood of all believers, rejoicing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit–including the gift of leadership–that God has given for the common good.
We Disciples see our task as receiving and living out with others what we have received–the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ–through a community of worship and fellowship, of service, of study, of prayer and meditation.
We Disciples hold the centrality of Scripture, recognizing that each person has the freedom–and responsibility–to study God’s word within the community of the church.
We Disciples see ourselves as in the American mainline protestant tradition and see ourselves as ecumenical, rather than non-denominational.
