Tuesdays are for Tacos!

Starting next Tuesday, Brian and Jan Fischer Bachman will be in the Fellowship Hall from 6:30 to 9 for “Taco Tuesday” 11/7, 11/14, 11/21, 11/28, 12/5 and 12/12. They’ll be offering chicken tacos – free, with any donations offered going to the youth fund. (Yay!)

People can show up any time, kids can do homework, Brian will bring some table games, people can just hang out.

It’s not a “program”, it’s just offering something people need anyhow – dinner and maybe having someone else help kids with homework

No need to RSVP-unless you’re happy to help. We’d love to know that in advance

Do feel free to invite people who might enjoy stopping by for some food!

If you know college kids or others who love a free meal, let them know!

Exploring our Welcome

Sunday, October 22, Carol Wise and Brian Flory, of the Supportive Congregation Network, and members of the Arlington, University Park and Westminster Churches of the Brethren were present to share stories about the discernment process that Brethren congregations have used to consider the nature of the welcome they extend to LGBTQ members.

The storm is passing over…

Wondering if you can get into the church? We’ll post word here when the parking lot and entryways have been cleared.

Friends, it appears that the storm has passed over! The snow has stopped earlier than we’d expected and dropped less than we’d feared or hoped for, depending on your perspective. We received between three and five inches, but that’s already started to melt. At any rate, the parking lot is plowed and the entryways to our building are open.

But before you head out, please don’t forget to check road conditions. Safety comes first!

Finally, Board and Committee members can expect e-mail and/or phone communication of meeting cancellations. But we’ll also try to update events on the Google Calendar embedded in our site as we get information. We’ll also update information for our partnering congregations’ events as we hear from them.

If you have updates for us, please contact Pastor Ken.

Join our Thursday evening Bible study!

Church of the Brethren 2017 Annual Conference logo

A five week Bible Study group, sponsored by the Action Reflection Committee, continues to discuss the Annual Conference Moderator’s monthly studies on the topic “Risk Hope.”

The moderator, Carol Sheppard, is addressing the uncertainty of these times in the world and in the Church and how we can risk hope in the midst of confusion.

Each study includes related scripture, commentary and discussion questions. Our last meeting will be this Thursday, March 2 in the Fellowship Hall at 7:30 p.m.

This is a series; but participants are welcome to attend any of the sessions they can make.
