The Hollidaysburg Church of the Brethren
is a family of believers sharing the
teaching and example of Jesus
with all people.
Join together as we share in Love Feast on Sunday, October 2 at 7:00 p.m. and observe communion with others around the world. The traditional Brethren Love Feast includes feetwashing, the Agape meal (a light meal with beef broth or a vegeterian option, along with fruit, cheese and crackers), and bread & cup communion. Child care will be provided.
Bible Study/Discussion time on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in the parlor. The scripture topics in 2016 are generally chosen to coincide with the sermon texts. (Not in August.)
