Palo Alto Church of Christ exists to minister to the spiritual needs of the congregation and the community. We are primary interested in the souls of people of all ages with emphasis on forgiveness of sins, service to God, moral responsibilities and eternal salvation.
Palo Alto was initially established in 1936 in the Springfield community then in 1946 opened its doors in the Cove on Palo Alto Avenue and Hwy 98. Outgrowing that location, Palo Alto moved to its current location on HWY 231 in 1994. Palo Alto is led by a group of elders with many volunteer members teaching classes, leading children’s church, worshipping together and serving the community.
