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.
Our annual community flea market returns on Saturday, June 3rd.
Sales open at 8:00 am and continue to 1:00 p.m. In addition to the vendors, there will be grilled hot dogs and delicious baked goods for sale. You never know what you’ll find at the flea market!
Vendor setup begins at 7:00 a.m. Sales space is available for a $15 donation to the church and must be reserved in advance. Email or call the church office to reserve space.
The flea market takes place along the sides of the church parking lot, moving inside if we get a rainy day. Tell your friends! (more…)
All are welcome to join us Thursday, June 1 at 7:00 pm for Bible study in the fellowship hall. We will continue our study on the theme of the Annual Conference “Risk Hope.” If you can’t make it, you can follow along here.
