The Church of the Brethren Annual Conference will be held June 28 – July 2 in Grand Rapids, MI. This year’s theme is based on Hebrews 10:23 urging us to hold fast to our hope in Jesus Christ. The Annual Conference exists to unite, strengthen and equip the Church of the Brethren to follow Jesus. For over 250 years, Brethren have gathered regularly together to worship together, to discuss questions of faith, and to be reacquainted with believers across the country. The first official meeting of this type was in 1742 when Brethren met to reaffirm their unique identity. Annual Conference is the highest and final legislative authority in the Church of the Brethren, including all matters of procedure, program, polity, and discipline. The authority of Conference has its source in the delegates elected by local congregations and districts, who come together as a deliberative body under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Please pray for this year’s conference delegate Jerry Anne’s discernment, good health, and safe travels. We lift prayers for all attending from our congregation, and across the country.If you can’t make it to Grand Rapids, you can still keep up with the latest developments via the AC webcasts. Beginning with Wednesday evening’s (June 28) Opening Worship service and including most business sessions, you won’t miss a thing. More information about Annual Conference is available on through the Church of the Brethren.
Hannah has grown up in our congregation. Her parents, and many members of our church, have helped her come to know the life and teachings of Jesus. As a youth, she has undertaken a more serious study of faith and discipleship. It gives us great joy to celebrate her decision to follow Jesus, to join our church, and to partner with us in ministry. This Sunday, June 11th, Hannah was baptized in Christ. We will honor Hannah, and all who’ve joined the church this year, at a reception later this summer.
The Oakton Church of the Brethren has been a part of this community for over 110 years. You can read all about it by visiting Our History. Special thanks to the original author, Mary Ludwick.
