The 25 Churches of Christmas

Friends, thank you so much for your recommendations thus far! We’ve gotten 14 of our 25 Churches of Christmas and I’ve been able to remove 8 states from the “endangered species list” (states with 2 or fewer recommendations). With only 2 days left, can we hope for a Christmas miracle of 14 more recommendations fitting the parameters I’ve outlined below?
Keep those recommendations coming!

This Christmas season, I’d like to offer you an opportunity to help me give our brothers and sisters in Christ a gift – a gift that won’t cost you a dime.

If you’ve followed me for a minute, you know I’m passionate about helping people find doctrinally sound churches to join. And if you’ve ever perused my list of Reader Recommended Churches, you’ve probably noticed that we have tons of listings for churches in some states, only one or two for others, and hardly any for countries outside the U.S.

What I’m hoping to do is add 25 doctrinally sound churches to the list in the states and countries that are lacking. Of course anyone is welcome to recommend a church anywhere, but in order for it to “count” toward The 25 Churches of Christmas, it needs to be a recommendation for a church:

⛪️ in one of our U.S. states that has two or fewer recommendations (currently: Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Rhode Island, West Virginia)


⛪️ a church in any country besides the U.S.

I’ve made the list, you check it twice. If recommendations are naught, be nice and make one! :0) If you have a personal connection to a solid church that’s not on the list, comment below with:

🎄The full, correctly spelled name of the church
🎄The city and state, or city and country it’s located in
🎄The church’s website (please, please, please include this – it saves me a lot of time).

Think we can add 25 churches by Christmas Day? Let’s give it a shot and make it a merry Christmas for our brothers and sisters who are searching for a new church! Thanks for your help! :0)

  1. Cornerstone Bible Church
    Lilburn Georgia (suburb of Atlanta), USA

    We are told over and over there isn’t another church in Atlanta like ours for Bible teaching, being doctrinaly and theologically sound, as well as really friendly! 🙂


    1. Greetings Michelle, I am happy to report that Connecticut does have a few more doctrinally sound churches. Several PCA and OPC churches. I belong to the Presbyterian Church of Coventry, Coventry, CT There are several sister churches, Manchester, CT and Christ Community in West Hartford, CT (PCA churches) As far as OPC churches, there are congregations (Westminster ) in Hamden and and a church plant (Harvest)in East Haddam/Moodus, CT . Merry Christmas and thank you for your God honoring ministry. Carey.


      1. Thank you so much, Carey! That gets Connecticut off our “endangered species list” (2 or fewer recommendations)! The churches besides the one in Coventry – you have personal knowledge that these churches are doctrinally sound?

  2. Please add this church to the list of churches for Spain:

    El Campello Christian Community
    35 San Bartolome (Baja 6)
    03560 El Campello

    Contact: Christian author Margaret Weston

    Thanks, God bless you.

    P.S.—good idea for a blog!


  3. I live in Delaware and I’m a member of Berean Community Church.
    Our teaching pastor is a graduate of Master’s Seminary and is a gifted expositor of the Word of God. You definitely want to check them out to add to your list.
    Thanks so much for your website. It has been very helpful to me. I’ve used your Ruth and Colossians Bible studies with a few ladies from church.


    1. Thanks, Monica! That gets Delaware off our “endangered species list” (2 or fewer recommendations)!

      I’m so glad the blog has been helpful to you. It is my pleasure to serve you in Christ. :0)


    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to make a recommendation, Patricia. I’m sure it’s a fine church, but I only recommend churches with men in leadership positions such as minister of music (or whatever that position may be titled). I’ve explained a bit more about that here in case you’d like more information.


      1. No problem I agree 🙂 we only went for a few weeks so I missed that. As we travel I feel blessed to find churches that even believe the Bible sadly. I love your blog / website ❤️


  4. I have three to add in three different states:

    Rehobeth Presbyterian, Waxhaw, NC (pastor is a longtime personal friend)

    McIlwain Presbyterian, Pensacola, FL (we attended last summer – it is a distance from our home however we plan to visit again) Their thorough statement on worship is the best I’ve ever read. Be sure to take the time to read.

    Grace Presbyterian, Fort Payne, Alabama (we attended this Fall when we were working in the area)

    The first church is ARP and the other two are PCA.
