MONTICELLO CHRISTIAN CHURCH
DISCIPLES OF CHRIST

The bell placed hereon serves as a reminder of the Church's roll in the history on Monticello and Lewis County.

"For we know that if our Earthly house on this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."   II Cor. 5: 1


The Bible text:
1 For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this tent we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling— 3 if indeed, when we have taken it off we will not be found naked. 4 For while we are still in this tent, we groan under our burden, because we wish not to be unclothed but to be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
