Join us at our upcoming Family Campfire Night for all preschool through elementary kids and their families. We’ll enjoy s’mores (supplies provided) and pray together as we start a new school year.

Family Campfire Night will be held Friday, September 10, from 7-8 pm at the home of Jason & Nancy Johnston (check your 2021 directory for the address or contact the church office if you need it).

LIFE 167

These small groups of believers, consisting of at least 3 or 4 intergenerational family units, meet regularly in homes and “do life” together by staying connected between meetings, helping each other with needs, and reaching out to unbelievers.

This fall we will be launching more groups and would like you to consider participating in one! Interested? Want to know more? Fill out an interest form or view our FAQ sheet now!

Worship With Us

9:00 am  & 10:30 am

At North Manchester First Brethren we laugh together, cry together, serve together, and learn together. We care deeply for this community and we care deeply for you.

Our Sunday morning worship services are a blend of traditional hymns and modern Christian music, scripture readings, Biblical teachings, times of sharing (“What did you bring?”), and much more.

Children are always welcome in our services but we also have engaging, age-appropriate programming for kids of all ages in The Garden (birth-Kindergarten), The LOFT (1st-6th Grades), and Youth Connect (7th-12th Grades).

Have more questions about worship at NMFBC? Give us a call at 982-6457 during office hours (Mon-Fri 8:30-4:30) or email any time!


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 more than 25 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
