Rockwood Christian Church Records

History

Rockwood Christian Church was established through a merger of the Boulevard Christian Church, created in 1902, and the North Fort Worth Christian Church, organized in 1908.

Before the vote for the merger, a reform committee was formed with six members from each church. On January 23, 1977, the congregations of Boulevard and North Fort Worth voted in agreement for the merger. On January 30, 1977, Reverend Timm Griffin led the first Sunday morning worship of the new Rockwood Christian Church at the 2008 Jacksboro Highway location, which previously belonged to the Boulevard Christian Church.

By 2010, under Pastor Steve Henton, the Rockwood Christian Church changed its name to the Heartsong Fellowship. On November 23, 2014, the Heartsong Fellowship Church celebrated the grand opening of their new location on 4901 Windy Ryon Way in Fort Worth.
