About the logo

Posted by andrew on February 13, 2015

cob-logoThe Church of the Brethren symbol upholds images of life in Jesus Christ. The cross recalls our baptism into Christ’s death and resurrection (Romans 6:4) and testifies to God’s plan to bring “all in heaven and earth . . . into a unity in Christ” (Ephesians 1:10 NEB). The circle, partially defined, represents the world into which we are sent by Christ (Matthew 28:19). The circle also affirms that as members of Christ’s body we are members one of another (Romans 12:5)—a people who confess “one Lord, one faith, one baptism” (Ephesians 4:5). The wave connotes new life in Christ, “born of water and the Spirit” (John 3:5). The wave further evokes the waters of justice (Amos 5:24), the cup of water offered in Christ’s name (Mark 9:41), the basin and towel (John 13:5), and “springs of living water” (Revelation 7:17). Images central to life in Jesus Christ thus are lifted up as images for Brethren to live by.

 

Offering Encouragement and Faith Support

Posted by andrew on July 18, 2014

This is our second plea for help!  There are currently 10 active members of the Deacon body to serve and support the needs of our congregation.  We are in a similar position as the disciples to whom Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest”. – Matthew 9:37-38

As we strive to perform the functions of our ministry to the best of our abilities, we wish to provide opportunities for others to share their spiritual and personal gifts.  Perhaps you do not want to become a deacon, but would like to provide support in some way.  We would like to develop and maintain a ministry made up of caring individuals who will encourage and support the needs of several families.

What will this group do?  Provide monthly contact to those people via cards, calls, visits, e-mail; acknowledge and celebrate special events in the lives of those members; and offer general support in their faith journey.  Will you be a laborer of His harvest?

For more information, please contact Vicki Yeager

Who can volunteer? All ages from 12 -99+ and we have a variety of opportunities available to suit many different interests. We have two critical needs right now.

Volunteers Needed

Posted by andrew on

There are a number of long-time, beloved members of our congregation who can no longer drive themselves to church and do not have family who are available to bring them. The Deacons have begun a ministry to provide rides for these members on the first Sunday of each month for the 10:45 service and the Fellowship Brunch. We are looking for volunteers to help us with this ministry. If you are interested in participating – even if you are unable to help every month – please contact Bob Smith
