Norwalk Christian Church
701 Main Street

Norwalk Christian ChurchThe Norwalk Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has been part of the Norwalk community since 1869 and affiliated with the denomination The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The symbol of this denomination is a red chalice bearing the “X-shaped” cross of St. Andrew. The chalice symbolizes the centrality of the Lord’s supper to Disciples’ lives. St. Andrew has been identified with the laity and evangelism, prominent emphases of Disciples in the past, present and future. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) does not have a formal statement of beliefs. We study the Bible to deepen our connection to God through Jesus Christ, and to discover how God wants us to live with and love one another. We recognize that the bible was written in a time and place very different from our own. In our studies we recognize the multiple layers of meaning a text may present enriching our understanding.

Communion is celebrated weekly in Disciples congregations. We may not believe the same things or express our faith the same way, yet we gather at the table each Sunday as a symbol of the love that binds us together. Everyone is welcome to share in communion.

People are welcomed into membership by coming forward during worship and making a public confession of faith. The pastor extends the “right hand of Christian fellowship” and asks the question, “Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God and do YOU proclaim him Savior and Lord?”

The Disciples practice “believers baptism,” meaning we baptize by immersion those who are of an age to commit to a life of Christian discipleship. Following one’s confession of faith, one may be baptized. If a person has already been baptized in another church or tradition it is recognized as valid and there is no need for re-baptism.

Sunday Worship Schedule

Informal Service at 8:30am
This “come as you are” service is relaxed and uplifting. Those who worship gather to a piano prelude and open with a sung call to worship. The congregation selects hymns from our hymnal and praise book. Participants come forward to give their offering and receive communion. A closing circle concludes the worship service.

Traditional Service at 10:30am
This service is considered “traditional” because it follows a traditional order of worship and contains elements such as a responsive call to worship, traditional hymns, and a sung Doxology. The children come forward for a children’s message and a choir anthem or special music is part of worship. Offering trays are passed, as is Communion, by our Diaconate.

You will see a mixture of attire at both worship services. Most important is your presence. What you wear is up to you.

Fellowship Coffee
The coffeepot is on and refreshments are served following every worship service. Everyone is encouraged to share in fellowship with one another after each service.

Child Care
Child care is available during both worship services and Sunday School for ages 5 and under.

Choosing a Realtor- 

Like choosing any service professional – from an accountant to your family doctor – it’s important to do your homework before deciding on a real estate agent.  Your home purchase or sale likely represents one of the most significant financial transactions of your life, and you definitely want to find the right person for you.

Abilities matter.  And production matters.  You want someone with experience, education and a proven track record of successful closings.  On all counts, RE/MAX is a solid place to start your search.  Nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX, and RE/MAX agents collectively hold more professional designations than agents at any other national real estate brand.

Redeemer Baptist Church
607 Mafred Dr

First Baptist Church had its first worship service in Norwalk, Iowa in 1963. In 1964 they built their brick building on the corner of Highway 28 and Mafred Drive. The church has many stories  from 1964 to 2014. Many lives were touched with the gospel of Christ.

However, we began to recognize in the latter years that we were not as impactful to our community as we wanted to be.

Recognizing and valuing the church’s history, but wanting to increase our impact, we began to change our identity and refocus our mission. We focused more on Jesus Christ and his gospel, invested large portions of our budget into helping and impacting our community, updated our building to improve its appearance and usefulness, changed our ministry times to coincide with Norwalk families’ schedule, updated our music, added helpful ministries, and much more.

These changes culminated in October of 2016, when First Baptist Church renamed themselves to reflect a distinct rebirth in the identity and mission of the church. We selected the name “Redeemer” because it reflects who we are about (Jesus), and what we are about (his mission of redemption).

Redeemer continues to invest large portions of our time, energy, and money into helping the community of Norwalk by introducing them to the hope of the gospel.
