History of the Chalice Hymnal
ABOUT CHALICE RESOURCES
The Rev. Joshua Bell is the head Pastor at First Christian Church in Perry, Oklahoma. He is currently working on his Doctor of Ministry degree at Phillips Theological Seminary. This website serves as a piece of his research project that is leading to the creation of a new Chalice Worship and Chalice Hymnal for The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). It will help hone down the precise moment that the movement we now know as a denominations first formalized our liturgical practices. This is important that we focus on it from Oklahoma because we were the first to fund the first collection of worship materials for the denomination in 1952, so let's do it again!
