Our District Nurture Commission is sponsoring a 13-week Bible study of the denomination’s Compelling Vision Statement, beginning on April 5. Jamie Nace, a pastor in the Lancaster congregation and member of the Commission, will coordinate a team of teachers who will help us explore the vision statement, which will be acted upon at Annual Conference this summer. The statement says simply:
“Together, as the Church of the Brethren, we will passionately live and share the radical transformation and holistic peace of Jesus Christ through relationship-based neighborhood engagement. To move us forward, we will develop a culture of calling and equipping disciples who are innovative, adaptable, and fearless.”
Brethren Press has created a 13-week Bible study lesson series focused on the Compelling Vision. This series is designed to call us into a time of prayer and focused study of Scripture as we seek the mind of Christ in community with others. As the Church of the Brethren, we desire to move forward boldly in faith and commitment to Jesus, to the church, and to each other. We invite you to participate in a first step on that journey by joining in this Bible study with others in our district.

Calling the Called
May 1, Virtual
September 25, Chambersburg CoB (Tentative)
Calling the Called is an event organized by the Atlantic Northeast, MidAtlantic, Southern PA, Middle PA and Western PA Districts. It is an intentional time away from the routine of life to discern what it means to be called by God to the set-apart ministry. Whether you are someone actively exploring the possibility of ministry or someone unsure of God’s calling this will be a helpful time of discernment and discovery.
Come and hear personal call stories, come and wrestle with biblical call stories, come and learn about the process of entering the set-apart ministry in the Church of the Brethren. Discover what it means to be a people called by God.
