One Church started as Colonial Point Christian Church under the direction of Restoration House Ministries in New Hampshire, and with support from Traders Point Christian Church in Indiana.
In early 2000, after months of preparation, the church planting team mailed 200,000 invitation postcards to the community, resulting in the first worship service held on March 5, 2000 in the auditorium of Timothy Edwards Middle School in South Windsor, CT.
Since our launch we have truly become a community that honors God, reaches out in love and grows in our relationship with Him.
Under pastor Jim Turney, we have baptized over 50 of our congregation. And we spread our reach into the community where we have worked with the Vernon Rockville soup kitchen, food pantry and shelter. We have held back pack drives and even ran a community event called night to shine. See the events page.
Our congregation is made up of Christ followers that are faithful to the church and mission and we have donated over $10,000 to families in need. And we continue to give to the community and bless where we can.
One Church is entering its 20th year with a renewed focus on serving and worshiping with the communities of South Windsor, Vernon, Ellington, Manchester, East Windsor, East Hartford, and beyond into Hartford County.
