A Brief History of Wild Goose Christian Community


100 years ago, a group of faithful Presbyterians built a little brick church in Indian Valley, one of the most remote and beautiful corners of Floyd County, Virginia. It has always been Presbyterian; it has always been small (never more than 50 members); and it has always been mission minded.

Through the years, generations of families have worshiped God and served the community in ways material and spiritual. Several times the old brick church on Macks Mountain Road has had to close its doors because the congregation grew too small. But each time someone who loved the church and had a vision for the good she could do would start the fire anew. And soon a new congregation would be worshiping and serving the community in fresh and exciting ways.

This tradition of new birth, of resurrection, is happening again with the introduction of Wild Goose Christian Community, a non-traditional worshiping community of the Presbyterian Church (USA), reaching out to the non-churched in Indian Valley and beyond, as well as challenging traditionally churched Christians with new ways of telling the Old, Old Story.
