W.O.W. (WORDS ON WORSHIP)

Hazelwood is a part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination. We want to share with you some foundational aspects of our denomination that influence the way in which we worship.

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) was founded in the early 1800s in the United States. The founders envisioned a united church of Jesus Christ modeled on the New Testament. Disciples affirm that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God and offers grace to all. The Lord’s Supper, or Communion, is celebrated in weekly worship and is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ. The Chalice symbolizes the central place of communion in worship. chalice The x-shaped cross of the disciple Andrew is a reminder of the ministry of each person and the importance of evangelism.

Though some aspects of our worship service may change over the years, at the heart of things, this will always remain: we are, all of us, united in our faith and through the grace given to us by Jesus Christ.
