New Carlisle Community Church

May 18, 2017

 

The New Carlisle Community Church is identified often  as “the brick church located near downtown." 


A “ church”  has been at this location since 1868, but not always known by this name.  The building was extensively re-done in 1927, adding the brick.  The building itself is listed with other town structures on the National Register of Historic Places.


The  Church Constitution, embraces “all who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and our Savior.”  Truly a “Community” Church, as over the years it has had Pastors who have had various faith backgrounds, but always with this belief.   


The Community Church welcomes those who are on their journey to discovery.


The Community Church is very  community   minded.  Bright blue ribbons adorn Church door knobs and railing, which shows Church support for the local, state and national police forces.  

 
The congregation dedicated, on Sunday April 23, a newly replaced USA  flag, which is located on the tall flagpole on the  front lawn of the Church.  Membership is proud to support our country.   


Every Friday, 10:00  to 12:00, the Community Church provides the space for the  local Food Pantry.   


The  Chairman of this community public service is a Community Church member,  but it is worth mentioning that volunteers come from the Methodist Church, Wesleyan Church, Presbyterian Church, and St. Stan's Catholic Church.  Local clubs, businesses, individuals and large companies, contribute many dollars and goods to make this a true Community  effort. 


Keeping with the times, the  New Carlisle Community Church has a Facebook page, where there is a regular posting of a short scripture  or  meditation. These thoughts can be  read in the privacy of a person's home. 
Adults have a informal Bible discussion group each Sunday morning at 10:00 and anyone is welcome.  Regular Church service starts at 11:00 and ends at 12:00.


Youth activities are available for the children who choose not to participate in the last half of the regular Church service.  The congregation chooses  NOT  to call it “a nursery” as the adult in charge of this, likes it to be “time for kids.”


The pastor, Allen Dybdahl, is currently starting a new service of taking Communion to local Nursing Homes, and he will also add a stop at a person's home upon phone request to 654-3344.


Always welcome, are visitors and new members.
