Christmas Caroling

The Ministry of Worship invites you and your family to join in an evening of caroling and community! We will plan to meet at the front entrance of Timbercrest at 5:15 p.m. on Friday, December 22 where we’ll sing to the residents in the dining hall during their dinner. Then we’ll head to Peabody and carol through the halls. Following this everyone is invited back to the church for soup, hot cocoa, and family fun. We hope you’ll join us!

In order to help with food preparations, please contact the office or sign up on the sheet in the foyer if you are planning to attend.

Advent Sermon Series

Sunday Mornings, December 3-24, at 9:15 & 10:30 a.m.

God has called to the most unlikely people, urging them to follow, asking them to trust. This Christmas we hear their stories – from centuries ago and from our generation. Come with us this December as we explore The Call of Christmas



If you are reading this page, then I can be certain of at least one thing. God wants to do something wonderful in your life. Over the 20 years that I have been at First Brethren Church, I have had the opportunity to meet several people at various stages of their life. Time after time I have witnessed how God has weaved the ministry of First Brethren with people just like you. So whether for just one Sunday or for many Sundays, I am certain that God has placed you here at this time for a wonderful reason.

It won’t take long for you to discover that First Brethren is a place that genuinely loves the Lord and loves one another. We laugh together, cry together, serve together, and learn together. We care deeply for this community and we care deeply for you. If you’ve been searching for a friendly place to meet God then I am confident you will experience that here. I know this because I meet God through the many people I am privileged to call family here at First Brethren.

I am eager to know you and share with you all the marvelous ways God is working in the life of this church and community.

Kurt Stout, Senior Pastor
