Our History

We are a relatively young church that started when a group of friends who enjoyed fellowship together established the South Grand Lake Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) on September 13, 1998.  The first worship services were held in the Turner Funeral Chapel located in Langley, Oklahoma.  The church was soon incorporated with 106 charter members.

The chapel served the membership well in those first years; then a decision was made to purchase land and build a church.  Joe Wilkinson, architect and member, designed the building which was completed in June, 2001. 

In December 2003, the members voted to begin construction of a new community hall, which doubled the size of the church facility, and also provided room for fellowship dinners and other social activities.  It was dedicated on September 12, 2004 and a public open house followed on October 3, 2004.

The first building included the vestibule, sanctuary, office, kitchen, nursery and classrooms.  With the addition, the kitchen was moved to the new hall and enlarged.  In its place, a parlor was added, a gift from the Sisk Foundation.  The hall has a classroom, stage, musical instruments, a sound system and a separate entrance with additional parking.  The new kitchen is used three times a week by the ecumenical Meals on Wheels organization.
