history

A brief history of Xenia Church of Christ would begin when it was planted in 1942 by five families living in the Xenia area that had been attending church services in Springfield. Due to gasoline rationing during World War II, these families needed a meeting place closer to home. Together, they bought a small house at 870 South Detroit St. in Xenia and began worshiping there.

For the remainder of the war and throughout the 1950s, the original building was an ideal location. However, during the 1960s and early 1970s the church eventually needed a larger facility. It was during that time that the church was officially incorporated on April 20, 1966.

After the tornado of April 3, 1974, several members pledged over $300,000 to build a new church building at 444 Country Club Dr. From that time until now, the church has steadily grown. One of the main sources of new members over the years has been Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Fairborn, Ohio.

In 2005, a major renovation updated much of the decor and equipment of the building. The auditorium received new carpeting, curtains, paint, lighting fixtures, moveable chairs, a multi-track sound system, projection system, and a nine-foot hand-carved, free-standing cross that adorns the stage. Other areas of the building also received new carpet and paint.

The history of a church is not only about the buildings in which it meets. History, especially that of a church, is made by its members living their lives and impacting the world around them. Xenia Church of Christ has made an impact on people through evangelistic efforts and benevolence. Whether through Bible studies, worship assemblies, providing food and clothing, or other efforts, we will continue to live our faith by loving God and loving people.
