Welcome to Howard Street Christian Church!
The Howard Street Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) was founded in 1891. Over the years an education wing & Fellowship Hall were added. In the 80's the old sanctuary was torn down and a new Sanctuary was incorporated into a new connected floor plan. In 2008 a new Life Center, kitchen and restrooms were added as a connected addition to the existing structure. Since then we have added a new electronic sign along Locust street and are in the stages of planning a garage for our transportation bus and camp trailer on our property to the West. We are an open congregation that invites all to worship in an atmosphere of "Loving God & others" as we attempt to do God's will, where we work, live and play! Come and join us!
Welcome, and thank you for visiting Howard Street Christian Church online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. Our building is located at 101 North Locust Street, in Colfax, Iowa. Check out the "Visit us" page for map and location. Sunday service schedule is listed on the right side of this page. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our fellow disciple.
As members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination our roots are founded in the Stone/Campbell movement of the early 1800's. "No creed but Christ, no book but the Bible," was the founding call to faith. In that, we still to this day, attempt to follow Christ's teaching of living a life that "loves God and loves neighbor as ourselves."
We are a mission church. Just as Jesus reached out a helping hand to those around him, so too our vision is to do whatever we can to share God's love with others.
