Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
The congregation at Central Christian Church would like to extend an invitation to you to worship with us!
We are a warm, friendly, caring community of Christians. Each week we have Sunday School for various ages at 9:45am, a nursery for ages 0 to 5 years, and our service at 11:00am. After the Sunday worship service, we gather in the community room for refreshments and a time of fellowship.
Our denomination, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), first developed around 200 years ago on the American frontier. Our practices and teachings have been historically shaped by those roots. At Central Christian Church we strive to be true to the description of our denomination by an early church leader: “In faith, unity; in opinions, liberty; in all things, love.” Additionally, as is typical with Christian Churches, we are congregationally independent, democratically governed and non-hierarchal.
Our local community first began meeting in downtown Austin in 1847, making us one of the oldest church congregations here. Our building, which we have used now for over 80 years, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a widely recognized example of the “Eclectic” or “Beaux Arts” movement of the 1920’s. It’s interior is similar to that of the medieval cathedral of St. Miniato in Florence, Italy, while the exterior is suggestive of our Spanish Colonial history.
We are pleased to have you visit our web page. We look forward to meeting you in historic downtown Austin and trust that you will accept this invitation to worship with us soon.
