When you visit Twinsburg Church of Christ you can expect to be greeted with a smile and find the atmosphere to be enjoyable. We have developing ministries to make everyone feel welcomed and part of our family.
We pray you will enjoy music and sermons that are designed to help you deal with real life issues. What you learn during our Sunday services will be something you will be able to apply to your life throughout the week. Our goal is to help you connect to the help that God gives to each of us.
We are concerned about your heart and about the spiritual needs you may have in your life, more so than what you wear. If you dress casually, you will fit right in . . . or if you wear a coat and tie, you will fit right in!
So, whether you are a spiritual seeker who is just starting to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian who wants to sink the roots of your faith deeper, you can find a home at the Twinsburg Church of Christ.
The Twinsburg Church of Christ began June 9, 1968 with the assistance of the Northeastern Ohio Association of Helpers (NOAH). J. Edwin Smith of NOAH was the first evangelist. The church started in the R. B. Chamberlin High School in Twinsburg, Ohio with 19 people present the first Sunday. The first meetings were held in the audio-visual room and then moved into the library which provided additional seating.
Burrell E. Garren came to minister in November 1, 1970. Property was purchased at 1717 E. Aurora Road in Twinsburg and the 7.5 acres of property was later annexed into the city of Macedonia. The current building was built in two phases. The first phase was a 40 X 60 foot unit with a basement to house the congregation and was dedicated on September 2, 1975. The second phase, completed in July 2003, included space for offices, classrooms, a library, newborn nursery, restrooms and welcome center. A detached garage, pavilion and softball field have also been added. The congregation became self-supporting in February 1980 with Mr. Garren remaining as minister.
A highlight of the ministry was helping establish the Southeast Cleveland Church of Christ in Cleveland, Ohio. That congregation recently moved to Richmond Heights, Ohio and is now known as the Highland Road Church of Christ.
The Twinsburg Church of Christ is affiliated with the Christian Churches and Churches of Christ, where each congregation is self-governing. Decisions are made by the church board and if necessary, the congregation acting on the recommendation of the church board.
"When you sin, it’s like someone takes a photo of you in the act and shows it to the world. By the blood of Christ, your sins are covered and are never remembered again, setting you free of your sins."
