Gather this Wednesday, March 6 at 7:00 pm, as we share together in worship with our ecumenical friends, mark the beginning of the Lenten season, receive the ashes that remind us of our origination and our destination, and enter into quiet reflection and renewal of our personal spiritual journeys with our friends from First Presbyterian Church Columbus Indiana.
Rev. Dr. Felipe Martinez will be our preacher for the evening. A joint choir will sing, and we will receive – as one community – communion and ashes.
Yesterday was a momentous day for North Christian Church and our faith partners! Representatives of Sha'arei Shalom - Reform Jewish Congregation of Columbus, Indiana, Islamic Society of Columbus Indiana (ISCI), HSSI Columbus, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbus, Indiana, and North Christian Church signed incorporation papers to create a new entity for interfaith work. Rev. Nic Cable will serve as Executive Director as this next chapter of the journey unfolds. We are excited and proud to be a part of the interfaith work happening in Columbus and look forward to the ways we will work together, live together, and serve the community together. Stay tuned!
In the story of Joseph (Genesis 45:3-11, 15), Joseph forgives his brothers for the heinous ways they have treated him. Over the years, Christians have weaponized this story to keep victims of abuse silent about their experiences. How can we justify Joseph’s forgiveness of his brothers and simultaneously encourage our loved ones to be honest about their stories of pain? The perspective and interpretation of the victim make all the difference in the world.
Based on Luke 6:27-38 and Genesis 45:3-11, 15.
We are honored to host this important community event by the local chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, in partnership with Columbus First United Methodist Church, First Presbyterian Church Columbus Indiana, The Peace and Justice Ministry of St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, and Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbus, IN.

On November 11 and 18, we will join other Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) churches across the US and Canada by collecting the Thanksgiving offering. Giving to the Thanksgiving offering helps to support the work of our institutions of higher learning in many ways: financially supporting Disciples related schools, providing undergraduate scholarships and support for spiritual life offices, and providing scholarships and support for those pursuing theological education.
