Each year, the 60+ churches that comprise the Mid-Atlantic District of the Church of the Brethren gather to worship, fellowship and conduct business. This year’s conference is Friday and Saturday, October 12 & 13 at Manassas CoB.
Worship is Friday evening at 7:30 PM, and Rev. Dr. Dawn Ottoni-Wilhelm will be preaching. Dawn is the professor of preaching and worship at Bethany Theological Seminary, and also serves as the President of Societas Homiletica, the international association of preaching. This is a wonderful opportunity – close to home – to worship with the wider body. Plan to attend!
One of the defining traditions of the Church of the Brethren is it’s twice a year celebration of Love Feast. This year, the service is Sunday, October 14 at 7 PM. During Love Feast, we gather to sing and eat and serve one another. It is one of the most meaningful rituals we have, and many other churches “borrow” our tradition because it is so lovely. Pastor Angela wants to focus on the celebratory aspect of Love Feast and will be using a Prodigal Son theme for this service.
This is not a carry-in meal – a very simple spread is provided. All are welcome, but if you’ve never attended a Love Feast before, you are especially welcomed. You may participate in as many of the elements as you feel comfortable, and simply observe the rest. No one is keeping track!
Make it a priority to come and deepen your relationship with your church family and with God.

In an effort to save trees and keep our directory information as up to date as possible, we are now using an online church directory. Tracey has entered all of the information from the most recent printed bulletin into the online version, but some edits/updates/typos may need to be corrected. Please help us by doing the following:
Visit https://members.instantchurchdirectory.com/. Along the right side, you will see a link to “Create a login now”. Click that, and you will be presented with a screen asking you to enter your email address (the one that is currently in our printed directory) and create a password. This added security keeps our information safe. If you do not have an email address in our directory, you will need to send the email address you would like to use to Tracey in the office so that she can add it to the online directory and you can create a login.
Once you have created your password, you will be sent a link to the email address that you used to confirm your registration. Then you will be able to use the directory! Please let us know if you see any typos or corrections that need to be made.
We would love to add photos to the directory as well. Please send a photo of your family to Tracey for inclusion. Ideally, the photo would be 618 pixels wide x 543 pixels tall at 300 dpi. If that’s confusing, send what you have and we’ll make it work.
