Disciples of Christ

  • Our Mission

    The mission of Fairhope Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is to seek in all ways to make known the love of God: by Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, providing opportunities for worship, spiritual growth, and service; Seeking persons for commitment to Christ as disciples; by being a caring and supportive fellowship, and working for the unity of all Christians

  • Our calling

    "Reach up to God," "Reach into our Hearts," "Reach out to others." 

    We are not a building, but a body of believers endeavoring to listen and respond to the call God has placed on our lives. It is in this reach where we find the will of God revealed. 

  • message from Pastor Rick

    I just returned from a six week sabbatical and I am so grateful for the opportunity to take some time away to refresh, recharge and reconnect with God. I am fortunate in that the congregation I serve sees value in sabbatical time and that they encourage and support this vital part of a ministers wellbeing as well as growth. Sometimes we do not realize how tired or worn we are until we step away for a bit and this time away has helped me in ways I did not expect. I had time to reflect on how I am answering the call God has placed upon me and how I could do it better. I had time to reengage with God in a more intentional way most profoundly during our two week retreat at Abbie Lane Retreat Center in Coushatta, Louisiana. The prayer gardens and atmosphere allowed me to disengage from the daily worries and tasks and just concentrate on listening for God's voice. I came away with a better sense of what God is calling me to do as well as giving me insight into how I can continue to grow as a pastor and leader of this wonderful congregation. 

    While it was hard to be away, I feel the time spent has reenergized me and has given me a new sense of purpose. I wish more people could take advantage of a sabbatical and feel the energy, the drive and the determination returning as I have had these past six weeks. 

    Jesus said, "come to me all who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest," Matthew 11:28. 

    In Jesus, we can find our rest and if we sit and take the time, we will hear Jesus speaking to us giving us direction and guidance. I thank this church for giving me this opportunity to take this rest.
