2016 Advent Sermon Series

November 27 – December 24

Christmas is a season of HOPE.  The carols announce this HOPE.

The angels sang this HOPE. The shepherds explored this HOPE.

The magi chased after this HOPE.  Mary embraced this HOPE.

Jesus is the HOPE of the world not just at this season, but all year long.

Join us each Sunday this Advent as we discover this HOPE!

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
