Fall Congregational Meeting & Lunch

The annual Fall Congregational Business Meeting and Lunch will be held on November 13th following the morning worship. 

From Audrey's Desk - October 2016

As you know by now, Pastor Tim and I have named this, our third year of ministry with the Hagerstown Church of the Brethren, a year to focus on hospitality. Hospitality stems  from Christ’s greatest commandments to love the Lord our God and to love our neighbors as ourselves. At the end of October, we will have a worship series on hospitality as we explore how we as a church can be more hospitable to not only the stranger who walks through our doors or through our parking lot, but to each other. 

From Tim's Desk - September 2016

Hospitality is about relationships.  Fred Bernhard explains in his book “Deep & Wide” that people stick around a church if they are making relationships with God and others.  Relationship is key.  So consider these stories.

The Hagerstown Church of the Brethren:
A caring community gathered round the Risen Christ that
…Welcomes the stranger
…Empowers our neighbors
…Embraces the diversity among all people as we continue the work of Jesus,
peacefully, simply, together.


The mission of the Hagerstown Church of the Brethren is to celebrate the love of Jesus Christ and glorify the Lord by striving to live as Christ lived, experiencing the power of God's healing in our lives. We seek to nurture our faith community through prayer, music and the proclaimed Word, while enthusiastically reaching out to others with compassion, respect and love for everyone so that we may grow in faith and commitment together.
