NEWCOMERS PAGE

Welcome!
We hope that you will come to visit and worship with us soon.
Sunday worship is at 10:30 am
(10 am in the months of June, July and August)
 
Do you want to learn more about Christian life?
Do you want a more spiritual life, but you don’t know where to start?
We welcome believers in all stages of their
faith journey to walk along with us.
 
We hope that this page will answer questions you may have about coming to our church for the first time.

 
Who are we?

  • We are a long established congregation having been founded in 1957. However, we continually seek to find ways for our worship services and Bible studies to be relevant to today’s world.
  • We are part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a mainline Protestant denomination.
  • Everyone is welcome to worship with us and become part of our church community. You do not have to be from our denomination or come from any particular church background.

One of the many aspects of the Christian Church of Villa Park that I like is the mutual respect and warm affection that is shared without any reservation among members of our church community. This is the one quality that attracted my family and me to this church more than 10 years ago.

How do you get here?

  • See the Contact Us page of our website for a map. We are located on Villa Avenue at Riordan which is one block north of Roosevelt Road. We are close to Elmhurst, Oakbrook Terrace and Lombard.
  • The parking lot entrance is off of Riordan. Most people enter the church through the door off of the parking lot. Go to the opposite end of the hall for worship.

What should you expect during the Sunday worship service?

  • Our services are a blend of traditional and contemporary. Members participate with the pastor in leading the service.
   
  • You don’t have to dress up. Some members like to get dressed up while others prefer to be casual. Either is accepted.
  • We sing, pray, read Bible passages, greet one another, listen to music, share our joys and concerns, take an offering and hear a message from our pastor.
  • We have communion each week. Anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as his or her Lord and Savior is welcome to take communion. You do not have to be a member.
  • An invitation is given every week for people to commit their lives to Christ and become a part of our church community.
  • We sometimes have refreshments after the worship service for meeting and greeting one another.
 
The highlight of my week is our Sunday morning worship service that is rich in spiritual content, well structured and nourishing.

What do we offer for children?

  • Children are a special part of our congregation.
  • Children join their parents in worship. There is a children’s sermon during the service, after which they may leave and attend children’s church.
  • A nursery attendant is available during the worship service for younger children.
