Who We Are
Lafayette Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is not a building, but a people.
We are brothers and sisters who choose to minister with one another, bringing varied gifts and viewpoints for the good of the Whole, and celebrating our life journeys within community.
We celebrated 50 years as both a neighborhood and regional church within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) tradition in 2009.
Would you rather be right or be in relationship? We choose relationship every time.
Our worship is a casual blend of traditional and contemporary styles.
We are an Open and Affirming congregation, inclusive of all people.
We cherish frequent participation by youth and children as worship leaders and teachers of wonder and mystery.
Our community is an example of combining the roles of personal responsibility and faith with social and global responsibility. We are also a Teaching Parish for Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA.
Our guests in worship and our community life reflect deep individual and communal spirituality. There is an intentional openness to the wisdom of all faith traditions; a progressive understanding of our world, our faith, and our call to “healing ministries,” and the challenges, gifts and possibilities brought through a strong education program for all ages.
