Empowered to Connect

“The Empowered to Connect Conference features practical teaching in a safe and supportive community as we work to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care. It features Trust-Based Relational InterventionⓇ (TBRI) methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, to help bring attachment and connection in families. The content is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption or foster care, and those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, and therapists.”

We hope you’ll join us for this simulcast conference on April 7th & 8th (10am – 6pm) in our sanctuary!

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
