Four years ago, God led our family to Elizabethtown Brethren in Christ Church. The congregation extended hospitality to
- our child with developmental delays;
- myself, a campus minister with a call to Christian scholars;
- our family, which has a passion for being part of a people of God rooted in and living out the Word of God.
Elizabethtown Brethren in Christ has become “home.” We rejoice not only in the privilege to celebrate the centennial this past Sunday, but also to continue to walk in Deep Roots; Faithful Vision (Ephesians 3:17).
Two notable quotes from the November 14 evening service:
“I think each generation should serve their own time. The earlier circumstances would not be adequate for today – and neither would our methods have been satisfactory for them. So I think it is important that we willingly accept changes as they become necessary and faithfully serve our age.” — Paul Wolgemuth, Sr. (circa 1990s), shared by Paul Wolgemuth, Jr.
May the deep roots established by 100 years of ministry be the foundation that undergirds our mission to be faithful to the vision that God has given EBIC for this church, this community, and this world. – Nevin Dourte
Amen! More pictures and highlights coming soon.
