From Tim's Desk - Nov. 2015

Despite communicative technology that brings people together with immediacy and clarity, many scholars speculate that people living in our society today are some of the loneliest ever. While communication is easy, the medium does not promote intimacy. Thus, many people in our society do not understand real intimacy and thus struggle to understand real community.

From Audrey's Desk - October 2015

Starting in October, we will have a special worship series using the Living Peace Curriculum put together by On Earth Peace, an agency of the Church of the Brethren. This is a six week study that would encourage us to consider what it would look like if our congregation lived like a peace church led by God, following in Christ’s footsteps, and inspired by the Spirit. Along with these topics in worship, we invite you to join us in a daily Bible study and weekly reflection questions. The Living Peace Gathering group will also be hosting four lunch conversation opportunities in the Fellowship Hall after the 11:00 AM worship (October 11, 18, 25, and November 15) for us to continue the conversation together.

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.
