OUR PASTOR

Let me introduce myself. My name is Scott McNay and I serve as pastor here. 

 

In the average week my work around the church includes visiting the sick, meeting with those that need encouragement and direction, and studying for sermons or bible studies.

 

But when I am not in the office or out on visitation, my day is a lot like yours. I love every moment I get with my wife and four kids. I enjoy working in the yard (at least through June), putting out a garden and grilling red meat. If you drive by and the garage door is up I'm probably refinishing a woodworking project or tinkering on my motorcycle.

 

If I can be of any help as you discern God's call on your life please let me know. God has put us together in this community to be more than neighbors, but brothers and sisters in Jesus. I hope you come and join us at La Plata Christian Church for worship.

OUR HISTORY

  • In 1868, 45 charter members established our congregation

  • The first one room building was completed in the spring of 1869.

  • During 1958, the congregation began using a functional committee approach, establishing one board of elders, deacons, and chairpersons of committees, creating greater participation of the entire membership in the ministry of the church.

  • The present building was dedicated on February 27, 1966.

  • Our congregation has traditionally supported and still supports missionary and benevolent work.

  • From 1993 to 2008, our church sent teams of youth and adult sponsors to work in mission fields within the United States.

  • On August 25, 2002, the congregation of LaPlata Christian Church voted by an overwhelming majority to no longer be associated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
