This evening is Love Feast, a sacred ordinance in the Church of the Brethren.
Today is World Communion Sunday, one of the twice yearly dates that we celebrate Love Feast.
Tonight at 6:00 we will share a meal, wash each others' feet, and share the bread and cup, following Christ in what he did for and with his disciples. This is a humbling experience, reminding us that we have a journey to walk as we seek to follow Christ.

All are welcome. Come join us as we celebrate and worship the Lord together.

Surprise Party AND Love Feast


Last evening we succeeded in surprising Pastor Tim and Betty Sue for a 40th anniversary celebration. (Their actual anniversary is October 7, but next weekend will be a busy weekend.)
We all had a great meal at Yoder's in Arthur--about 21 of us--and then we enjoyed a lovely cake in their honor. Congratulations on 40 years together!

Love Feast is coming up next Sunday, October 7.
This is a very important part of Church of the Brethren life when we celebrate footwashing (Jesus did this for his disciples at the Last Supper) and the bread and cup (again, as Jesus did with his disciples).
All are invited to join us as we participate in this meaningful celebration of Christ's life and service. We will meet in the Fellowship Hall at 6:00.

Community & Global Work


Our Women's Fellowship does a number of service projects during the year, including making quilts/blankets for charity, care packages for college students, and hygiene kits for those who have been through disasters.
Below are some of our women assembling the hygiene kits. We are sending off a total of 59 that will go to our Church of the Brethren Service Center in New Windsor, MD, where they will be ready to be shipped out by Church World Service, either here in the U.S. or anywhere around the world where they are needed.


Come, join us. We'd love to see you. Worship is at 10:00 each Sunday with Sunday School at 9:00.
Bible Study is each Tuesday at 9:30 a.m.

Summer Days

If you didn't come to our Strawberry Fest, you missed out. It was a delightful evening with a Fellowship Hall full of people, lots of fresh strawberry pie, Texas sheet cake, angelfood cake, ice cream, fresh strawberries. Plan to come next year!

We invite you to come to Judy's Kitchen on July 8. We will be waiting tables that day to raise funds for our church.
Also, the Village rummage sale is the last weekend of July. We will have our annual food stand, but this year we will also have rummage in the church fellowship hall.

In the meantime, it's summer!
That doesn't mean church can't be included in weekly plans. Come join us for Sunday School at 9:00 and worship at 10:00 every Sunday. We will be happy to see everyone.

Time to be Thankful

It's fall--with beautiful sunrises, sunsets, and trees. It is "fall back" to Central Standard Time today, but we have much for which to be thankful.

What are you thankful for? As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, let us remind ourselves of our blessings, and remember to see those each day, regardless the trials we encounter.

Christ is always with us, to help us through any situation. Are you thankful?
