Milagro is a church in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination. The church was founded in 2004, and has been at its present location since 2006.
Our services start at 10:30 a.m. every Sunday. Join us a few minutes early, and have coffee with us. Feel free to take it into the sanctuary. Dress however you feel comfortable, we don't have a "dress code." We sing all types of songs – traditional hymns, “secular” songs (think “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen, “Mary” by Patti Griffin, “40″ by U2, “One Love” by Bob Marley). Sermons last for about 15 minutes, and someone will share a bit about how they see God (We call it “Shared Story”) We serve communion by intinction (which means tearing off a piece of bread from the broken loaf and dipping it in the cup. We use grape juice). We believe that God’s grace is available to everyone, and therefore have an open communion table.
We are diverse in age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religious background. Some of us have been in church since we were kids, some of us were raised in church, but left and swore we’d never come back. And for others, Milagro Christian Church is the first church we’ve ever attended. We encourage questions, and believe that every person has the ability to read and interpret scripture for themselves and that the message of the bible is available to all who wish to study it.
It doesn’t matter to us if you call yourself a Christian, or not. What does matter is that you are looking for a place where you can explore your spirituality. We love questions. We don’t claim to have all the answers, but we are willing to help you find them.
Some questions, some answers:
The Bible - inerrant or not? We believe the Bible is God-inspired. However, we also realize that the book we know as "The Bible" is a product of human beings, containing stories written in ancient languages and translated multiple times over multiple centuries. We encourage people to read, study and interpret the Bible for themselves. We take the Bible seriously, but not literally, and believe that people are free to understand Scripture and apply it to their lives as they see fit. We encourage the attitude of St. Augustine: "Therefore in dealing with figurative expressions, the passage being read should be studied with careful consideration until its interpretation can be connected with the realm of love."
