Who We Are
“…a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world”
Heights Christian Church is part of the Christian Churches, Disciples of Christ, an ecumenical denomination with 3,000 congregations across North America. Our congregation consists of approximately 120 members who are diverse in many aspects. When Heights Christian Church was designed, the founding members envisioned a complete facility that not only would serve the church as a place of worship, study and fellowship, but also serve the community. While we have sold the building to another church, we remain in Shaker Heights and continue our commitment to service the community.
Our building housed many community programs and as members and a congregation, we continue to serve. In 1985, members of our congregation worked with the City of Shaker Heights and the Department of Housing and Urban Development to develop Campbell Court, an apartment building housing 81 senior citizens in comfortable, affordable surroundings.
Our focus now is on anti-racism, food scarcity, immigrants, and children and youth. We are eager to partner with other individuals and agencies in Shaker to understand and meet the many needs of our community. We are an anti-racism/pro-reconciling congregation, a Green Chalice church (for Creation Care/environmental concern), a Shalom congregation, striving for peace and wholeness in our world, and an open and affirming congregation, welcoming and affirming the dignity and worth of every person.
