  "Church in the Heart of the City with the City at Heart"
     Continuing the work of Jesus. Peacefully. Simply. Together.

From Tim's Desk - July 2015

Summer is such a sweet time of the year. The cherry tree behind our house has bright red, tart cherries. The orchards around Hagerstown will be advertising fresh peaches and watermelons. These fresh fruits hit the spot with delight and satisfaction on a hot summer day. At the Church of the Brethren Annual Conference in Tampa on July 11-15, Brethren will be thinking about fruit. In John’s Gospel, Jesus uses the image of fruit to explain the works of Christian living when a person is connected to Christ the vine. You remember the passage, “I am the vine; you are the branches.

From Pastor Audrey's Desk - May/June 2015

The first Sunday of May was All Music Sunday. Our two services came together into one service so that we could raise our voices and instruments in common song to our God. Praising God through music is a common topic in the Bible, especially in the Book of Psalms, which is no surprise, given that the psalms are written as an invitation to praise God in all aspects of life. The psalms are rich with heart-felt words of both sorrow and joy and speak to how we can praise God in the midst of both of these.
