Attending a new church for the first time can be seem intimidating, but Tapestry looks forward to your visit and hopes to make it a welcoming experience for you.

Directions

Each Sunday, Tapestry worships at Sugar Grove Elementary School, located at 4135 Smith Valley Rd, Greenwood, IN 46142. (Please note the Sunday worship location is a different location than the church office, located at 2801 Fairview Place, Greenwood IN 46142.)

Parking & entry

We have guest parking directly in front of the North side entrance to Sugar Grove. Enter through the main entrance of the elementary school.

Hospitality

As you enter the school, the welcome team will be there to greet you and to help you settle in. Coffee and light breakfast snacks are available just inside the door!

Services

Our services consist of wonderful music, prayers of the community, sermon and communion each week and last about one hour.

Kid's check-in & programs

We encourage you to arrive a few minutes early to get your kids checked in to our programs! The welcome team can assist you in finding correct rooms and programs.

Kids in Services

Though we’d love to have your children join us in one of our Sunday morning kid’s programs, they are welcome to join you in the service if it is more comfortable. Tapestry has special locations in each service where kids can color and play.

Communion

The Disciples of Christ practice an open communion table which means that all are invited to respond to Christ's invitation to draw closer to God around the communion table, no matter where you come from, what you've done or who you are. For Disciples, the open table is a powerful symbol of our deep commitment to Christian unity. The open table honors diversity even as it celebrates unity in Christ.
 
Disciples of Christ congregations celebrate communion every Sunday. The table is not only the center of worship, it is at the center of who we are as Christians.

Baptism

Just as baptism represents the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, it symbolizes the death and burial of the old self of the repentant believer, and the joyous birth of a brand new being in Christ. Those who founded the Disciples movement taught baptism by immersion as the accepted form. (From “Word to the Church on Baptism,” Commission on Theology, 1987)
 
Baptism is a public act by which the church proclaims God’s grace, as revealed in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, through the use of a visible sign of God’s gracious initiative and the human individual’s response in faith. With other Christians we affirm that baptism is both a divine gift and a human response.
 
Tapestry Church is an open membership church. This means that we accept all forms of baptism. If you have been baptized in another tradition, you do not need to be baptized again in this church to be a member.
