25 for 25: Celebrating 25 Years of Shepherd’s Spring

In honor of the Shepherd's Spring 25th anniversary, the board of directors would like to introduce the “25 for 25” Campaign. We are challenging 25 individuals from HCOB to give a regular monthly gift for the next 25 months.

From Audrey's Desk - Feb. 2016

The Church of the Brethren ministers manual, called “For All who Minister,” defines Lent with these words: “The forty days of Lent are most frequently identified with Jesus’ fortyday fast in the desert, the forty days Moses spent on Mount Sinai, and Israel’s forty years of wandering in the wilderness. The season of Lent focuses on discipline and penitence and is a time for increased reflection on the life, teaching, and sacrificial death of Christ.”

From Tim's Desk - Jan. 2016

The sign of any great moment in life is that we do not want it to end. Moments like singing Silent Night in our candle    lit sanctuary or slowly sipping coffee on Christmas day surrounded by family. In these moments, we are keenly aware of our emotions and the Spirit’s presence. We just want to breathe it in and stay there like Peter on the mountain with a transfigured Jesus.

A caring community gathered round the Risen Christ that
…Welcomes the stranger
…Empowers our neighbors
