A Message From Our Interim Pastor-




Beginning December 1, 2008 I assumed the position as interim minister of Winterville Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  I am extremely pleased to join WCC during this exciting time of their faith journey.  Please allow me to introduce you to a unique congregation.

 Do you desire to be a part of a community where you can simply be who you are as you search for meaning and purpose in life?  Are you looking for a place where all people are welcomed regardless of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, faith, or even no faith at all?  Have you realized lately that you are tired of narrow-minded Christianity and religion that condemns more than it loves?  Would you like to find a place where your questions and doubts will be received with respect and understanding?  If this describes you let me recommend Winterville Christian Church (DOC) as a place for you to “Come and See.”  Come and see if this is the place where you can explore your faith and experience true community.
