We are a welcoming, mid-size, Bible-based congregation within the Disciples of Christ denomination. Hazelwood ministers to all who seek to follow Christ and his teachings through personal understanding of the Scriptures. We value fellowship, diversity, inclusiveness, and we strive for spiritual growth by the leading of the Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper, or Communion, is celebrated in weekly worship. It is open to all who are followers of Jesus Christ. The practice of Holy Communion has become the central element of worship within the Disciples tradition.

Disciples’ observance of the Lord’s Supper echoes the Passover feast, when Jesus shared bread and wine with his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, the living Christ is met and received in the sharing of the bread and the cup, representative of the body and blood of Jesus. The presence of the living Lord is affirmed, and he is proclaimed to be the dominant power in our lives. (For those with food allergies, we offer special wafers in a sealed bag.)

We offer a blended worship service (a combination of our Traditional Worship &  Celebrate! Worship) at 10 a.m., in the Sanctuary, on Sunday mornings as well as streaming online. 

Other regular events include: sanctuary choir; children’s choir; handbell choir; hospital/nursing home/shut-in visitation; elementary/middle school/high school youth groups; many local groups and agencies utilizing our facilities.

Our mission: “Sharing Christ with our community through service and relationship.”
