In 1963, Wilmer and Katherine Hebbard, a couple living and working in the West Hartford area, begin to travel to Danbury weekly to offer a time to worship and take the Lord's Supper with a few other Christians in the area thus establishing the church of Christ in Danbury, Connecticut.
For a short time Bob and Jan Randolph, while attending Yale University, came over on Sunday mornings to preach and worship with the small group at the Odd Fellows Hall in Danbury.
In August 1966, under sponsorship of the University Church of Christ in Abilene, Texas, David and Paula Tarbet moved to Danbury to work as minister, with 8 other adult Christians still meeting in the Odd Fellows Hall on Main Street.
Because more children were present for Bible classes and worship, another meeting place was found at the Swedish Evangelical church on Liberty Street. When that facility was outgrown, the congregation met at the Park Ave Elementary school until the Danbury building was constructed in 1973 on Clapboard Ridge Road. Ground breaking was in April of 1973 and first services were held in our current building December of 1973.
The church is interested in two things:
- Serving Christ
- Serving You
