What to Expect?
Blackburns' Chapel is known for its friendly and intimate personality. You’ll feel
as you walk through the doors of the church that everyone matters and is
embraced. No matter where you are on your faith journey, we welcome you!
Blackburns' is a safe place to question and explore, and to gradually grow in
faith and service within a loving community that feels like family!
Our unique and beautiful setting in the heart of Todd gives us the privilege
to witness God in the beauty of creation each week. We regularly gather
in our church with the doors of the church fully open when its warm or
gazing through our large chapel windows when it’s colder to notice the
splendor of nature surrounding us. Blackburns' is always full of good
surprises whether it’s one of the friendly neighborhood dogs that strolls through
our open doors to join us, a spontaneous eruption of laughter throughout the
congregation in the middle of Sunday worship, or an unexpected friendship that develops around the table or fire pit. Blackburns' is truly a place that is fun, relaxed and hospitable!
Blackburns' Chapel’s mission is connecting with Christ, and through Christ connecting with each other and our neighbors. We accomplish this mission through contagious hospitality, radical service and mission, rejuvenating worship, and intentional spiritual growth.
Our vision is to be a growing and dynamic rural church that cultivates restoration, joy and love among our members, in Todd and beyond through the resurrecting grace and power of Jesus Christ. We envision being a bridge-building church, between the older and younger, the churched and spiritually exploring, Tradition and innovation, the church and community, newcomers and long-time locals, part-timers and full-timers, people and creation, rich and poor, insiders and outcasts, faith and action,
head and heart, suffering and compassion, who you’ve been and
who you’re becoming.
