The Merger of Shoreline & Northwest
Only blocks away from the Northwest Church of Christ building, the Shoreline Christian Church had also been praying for a new vision and a fresh beginning. They had solicited the help of George Johnson of the Christian Evangelistic Association to study their congregation and make a recommendation. He recommended that the Shoreline Christian Church do what some might think was impossible – merge with the Northwest Church of Christ. The elders of the two congregations soon began discussing and praying about this possibility. And God made it happen. Both groups overwhelmingly aggreed that uniting would be good for our two congregations, and would enhance our witness to our community.
