A MESSAGE FOR YOU

We are a community that is FOR people. We strive to provide a comfortable, accepting, positive environment where you can learn about God and your faith. Here, you won’t be judged or turned away. EVERYONE is welcome – questions, doubts, hurts, struggles and all. We believe Jesus calls us to love everyone – it’s that simple. We are FOR you.

CURRENT MESSAGE SERIES

FOR Johnstown Series at Westmont Church of the Brethren

Has your faith ever taken a hit because of random, unnecessary, unexplainable suffering? Either yours or somebody else’s? Did you recover?

During times of crisis, there is something followers of Jesus should be doing above anything else. Doing this won’t answer why bad things happen, but it will demonstrate where our hope lies.

We hope you join us for this two-part series beginning on 6/25 entitled “Shining Through”!

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US

In the New Testament, the word “brethren” describes a community of men and women who chose another way of living: the way of Jesus. The Church of the Brethren, began three centuries ago in Germany, and still draws people who want to continue Jesus’ work of faithfulness and loving service.

Though the Brethren as a group have existed for three hundred years, we subscribe to no formal “creed” or set of rules. We simply try to do what Jesus did.  Steadily, lovingly, even radically, Jesus went about saving the world — by serving its people. Because we believe his message, we seek to do the same.

Whether the conflict involves warring nations, racial discord, theological disputes, personal disagreement, or mere misunderstanding, Brethren listen conscientiously, seek guidance in the scriptures, and work toward reconciliation. We practice peaceful living. Living peacefully, to the Brethren, means treating each person with the attentive, compassionate respect that all human beings deserve.

The ideal of simplicity guides our decisions: How will we conduct our business, raise our children, spend our leisure time, tend our natural resources? How will we use our money, and why? How can we live comfortably, but without excess or ostentation?  For the Brethren, such considerations are not a requirement, but a privilege. As we seek to live intentionally, responsibly, and simply, we find a deep sense of purpose. And we find joy.

Our congregation welcome all who wish to share with us in another way of living: the way of Christian discipleship, life in community, fulfillment in service.

We are continuing the work of Jesus, peacefully, simply, together.
