ABOUT US

OUR HISTORY

It all started May 23, 1920, at the home of Milton and Luvenia Sisson and their 19-yr old daughter.

The church moved to the Sisson home on Page Avenue; then to their home on Blackstone St. Finally, in the mid-1920s, they settled at 914 N Blackstone St. In 1924, the church was blessed with its first minister, Brother Eckles of Detroit, MI.

By 1929-1935, the church rolls carried the family names of Thomas, McConnell, Lathan, Upchurch, Welch, Sisson, Rogers, Millben, Cowens, Palmer, Shanklin and Highwarden. In the ensuing years, the church moved to 316 Adams St., Jackson, MI. During the construction of a new facility, the members worshipped at the Hart’s residence. In 1951, the members moved into their brand new facility at 316 Adams Street. In 1992, the church had outgrown the Adams St. building and the members brought in the New Year at 706 S. Higby St, our present house of worship.

MISSION STATEMENT

"I would rather stand with God and be condemned by the world than to stand with the world and be condemned by God."

 

As members of the Church of Christ on Higby St., it is our desire to represent Christ to others through our actions. We readily commit to being disciples of Christ; to raise up leaders, to be cheerful givers, and to exemplify integrity, selflessness, love, patience, and peace.
