What are we?

Christians committed to “one body and one Spirit,” unified in “one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all” (Ephesians 4:4–6, NRSV).

Our church meets in the Durough home on Sunday mornings at 8:30 AM. (More info.)

Communion (The Lord’s Supper)

Following ancient tradition and the pattern set for us by Jesus, we celebrate the The Lord’s Supper every first day of the week in true communion with one another and our host, Jesus. As we remember the Lord’s death and the sacrifice that was made on the altar of the cross, we celebrate the resurrection at the table and join in the feast that points to the ultimate feast at Jesus’ return.

Again following Scripture and the early church, we begin our time together with the bread and end our meal with the cup. We conclude by singing the traditional hymn commonly known as the “Doxology” to praise the Trinity and stand united with generations before us who have done the same.

“For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, ‘This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this as often as you drink it in remembrance of me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.”
(1 Corinthians 11:23–26, ESV)

A Brief History

From a deep desire to bring back the Lord’s table to the gathering of his disciples, Durough House Communion began meeting in January 2012 in the home of Robert & Delana Durough in Scott Township, PA. In July 2015, R&D moved to Lakewood, CO, and quickly became active members in a large local congregation. After much prayer, it was clear that was no longer where they were supposed to be and that there was still a need and desire for house churches. So, DHC began meeting again in February 2017.

What does the symbol mean?

The image above was designed by using the letters (clockwise) “dhc” and a cross. The stems of the first two letters combined make the vertical beam and the crossbeam was added. The shape and placement of the letters may be perceived as small hills, in the midst of which the symbol of our faith is firmly planted. Originally in PA, the Durough house rested in the midst of three such hills. In essence, the image depicts who, whose, what, and where we are (even if now being in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains doesn’t precisely match the original!).
