The History of North Colony COC

Upon moving to The Colony, TX, Bro. Williams and his family searched for the Church of Christ in the city, but were saddened when they did not find it. The need for a biblically sound church rang in the ears of Bro Willie Williams III. In the beginning of the summer of 2008, a bible study was held with a neighbor in the community. Bro Williams III quickly realized i the course of that study that a church needed to be planted.
The morning of June 24, 2008 the decision to begin a work in The Colony was born. Bro Willie B Williams Jr., minister of the Beckley Heights Church of Christ, was notified of the vision and began to work with the development of planting the church. The evangelist, Bro. Willie Franklin of the Lewisville Church of Christ, Bro. Walt Minchew, the elder of the Walnut Hill Church of Christ, Bro. Ronnie Lewis, also of the Walnut Hill Church of Christ, The Walnut Hill CoC Mission Board, and Bro Karson Williams of the Prestoncrest Church of Christ all responded to the vision and invested knowledge and efforts in the realization of the North Colony Church of Christ.
The vision was to begin the work in January 2009. However, on September 17, 2008, Bro. Williams III held a bible study in the community which resulted in two precious souls. That Wednesday night, at 11:00pm, those souls were added to Jesus Christ by baptism. At that time, it became undeniable that God works on his own time and prayers were answered when Bro. Cornelius Taylor committed to working with the church on its development. On September 28, 2008, the North Colony Church of Christ had its first worship service. The meetings were held for two weeks in a gymnasium by the kindness of the owner. On October 28, 2008 the North Colony CoC had its first official opening worship to the community. Ninety people gathered into the community center to praise God and to support the work.
The Lord has blessed the North Colony Church of Christ with several facilities to host our worship services over the years. In June 2013, the church made the bold move to prepare to move so that we could prepare for the campus of NCCOC. By the grace of God we purchased our first building in October 2016. We are excited about what God is doing with us and through us. Please continue to pray for us and with us as we move to new frontiers.
