In the heart of Salt Lake City, our church has been a part of the 9th and 9th neighborhood story since the 1950s. Founded by immigrants from the Netherlands after World War II, our church became a home away from home, and members became family to one another, most living only blocks from one another and the church. Today, this sense of family is still evident and you will hopefully feel an atmosphere of warmth and familiarity that longstanding relationships are bound to nurture. A continuous response to the plight of “the other” has led our church to become a home to Native Americans relocating from their reservation, to Cambodian refugees fleeing political oppression. Throw in university students pursuing academic endeavors in a new place, Chinese Americans settling in the valley, urban professionals relocating to our city, locals exploring life outside their culture and you start to get a picture of the faces that together call themselves Life in Christ.
