Church History
The first worship service at East Brainerd Church of Christ was on December 8, 1946, at the East Brainerd Elementary School. Thirty-five people were present for the worship; twenty six attended the Bible study. Shortly before this a gospel meeting was held in a tent at the corner of Graysville and East Brainerd Roads.

Late in the year 1947 a lot on Graysville Road was purchased. A frame structure, 30 feet by 50 feet, was built there, providing an auditorium, two classrooms, and two restrooms. In 1962  A new building was constructed and an open house was held on December 16, 1962.

To facilitate future growth, the church purchased 22.96 acres at 7745 East Brainerd Road, where the present facility was completed in 1972. Additions to this facility occurred in 1985, 1987 and the Family Life Center was added in 1994.

Serving now as our ministers are: Glen Gray, involvement minister; Tom Norvell, minister of family & youth; Dave Mellor, evangelism minister;

In January 2000, the East Brainerd congregation had approximately 550 members. In the year 2002 we have approximately 670. Average attendance for Sunday morning worship services in 2001 was 632.
