Welcome the the MID-OHIO VALLEY PARISH! 


MID-OHIO VALLEY PARISH DISCIPLES OF CHRIST is a unique parish formed in 2006 by two separate congregations; First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Parkersburg, WV and Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Marietta, OH. Each congregation continues to function as a separate organization but are together in our purpose and goals and we share a minister.

First Christian in Parkersburg is part of the Christian Church in WV. We celebrated our 125th Anniversary in 2015. We had a special weekend, September 26-27 that highlighted our year of celebration. For more information about our Homecoming click on the link in the menu bar.

Central Christian in Marietta, OH is part of the Christian Church in OH.

Both congregations are part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. Together we minister to the entire Mid-Ohio Valley. Our mission starts in the Mid-Ohio Valley and goes far beyond our local area to the entire world.

We invite you to come and be a part of our fellowship and service to Jesus Christ and our communities. 

Pastor's Welcome

Welcome!  If you’re on this page, I’m assuming that you are here because:
·    You are interested in learning about our congregation.
·    You want to find out more about the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
·    You have heard about the minister that is "different".
·    You hit the wrong key and are here by mistake.

      Whatever your reason, I have prayed for the first person who finds their way here – so, I have prayed for YOU! I’ve also prayed for the first 1,000 so regardless, consider yourself prayed for.
      We are a group of people who believe that being a Christian is the very best life, not just in the future, but right now.  We have so much fun together when times are good, and we support each other when times are tough.  We expect the best, accept the worst and do everything in our power to live out the two greatest commandments – loving God and loving each other.
      If this sounds appealing to you, why not visit us and experience a positive approach to religion, reinforce your faith journey, and learn to deal with life’s challenges?
    Still think you are here by coincidence?  Not a chance.  I’m looking forward to hearing from you (pastor@movpdoc.com or 304.916.4664 or 304.485.5253) or seeing you Sunday, 9:00 - Marietta or 10:45 - Parkersburg, for morning worship.

Many Blessings!
Pastor Janice
