Question & Answer Session with the Leadership Team

Sunday, November 24, 2019
Fellowship Hall

Question & Answer Session with the Leadership Team - Sunday, November 24

Thank you to everyone who attended the Nov. 3 Congregational Business Meeting. We experienced the largest attendance in a couple of years, which was WONDERFUL. I do apologize, however, that the time constraint made the meeting feel rushed and that not everyone had the opportunity to voice their opinions or ask questions. To that end, the leadership team would like to announce our first ever open forum "Question & Answer Session with the Leadership Team” on Sunday, November 24 during the Sunday school hour. There will be no Sunday school classes that day and instead, we invite everyone to continue the conversations from the business meeting from 9:50 until 10:45 in the Fellowship Hall. There will be a light breakfast provided. Please join your brothers and sisters in this informal question and answer session to keep the lines of communication open. What a united way to kick off the Thanksgiving week together! -Julie Herman, Leadership Team Chair

Stuffing Stockings for Children

Sunday, December 15, 2019

The Service and Outreach Ministry Team is again this year sponsoring the Salvation Army Christmas Stockings. Stockings are available in the West Entrance to be taken and filled with Christmas gifts for children in need in our community.

Stockings should be returned on or before Sunday, December 15, with a tag for appropriate age and gender, and the top tied or stitched closed.  
Thanks for helping to bring joy to a child this Christmas season. 

Advent Family Candle

Sunday, December 1, 2019

You are invited to bring an unscented candle on December 1st, the first  Sunday of Advent, as a family or as an individual.

The unscented candle can be any type of festive candle, and you are welcome to describe “family” in any way you wish. They may be wax candles, a votive, or flameless/battery-powered candles. If they require a flame, please be sure they are on a plate or in a holder to contain any wax drips.

Why unscented? Because some people are very sensitive and have adverse reactions to scent.  

Peace Day

Monday, October 7, 2019
Peace Room (Room

We invite you to our next "Living Peace Gathering" on Monday, October 7 at 4:00 p.m. in the Peace Room (Room #309).

The International Day of Prayer for Peace and On Earth Peace has been organizing faith community groups to participate in the International Day of Prayer for Peace since 2007.  Many religious groups come together on September 21 or 22 to share and celebrate this day of peace.

Our "Living Peace" gathering here at the Hagerstown Church of the Brethren is excited about all the groups who come together for the celebration of "Peace Day" for it gives energy and spirit to the efforts in building a culture of peace and nonviolence.  .
