HUNGERING FOR HOPE

Posted on: February 13th, 2024 by Breslau Mennonite Church

 

We are hungering for hope. The world seems to be a very weary place. Where can authentic hope be found? What happens when we embody trust, surrender, openness, beauty, rebirth, and reconciliation?

Join Breslau Mennonite Church for worship. All are welcome! During the season of Lent, 40 days (not including Sundays) from Ash Wednesday to the Saturday before Easter, to experience a journey of seeking, discovery, and challenge. Hungering for Hope is our worship theme for Lent. Worship is Sunday at 9:45 am, the first Sunday of Lent is February 18.

Christmas Good News!

Posted on: December 22nd, 2023 by Breslau Mennonite Church

We share in a Christmas Blessing:
of choirs of angels proclaiming Good News of peace and good will to all,
of shepherds rushing to share in this Good News,
a story of a child, born in a manger, who is Good News for all the earth.
Knowing that God is with us, we receive and share this Good News!

 

Advent 2023    Hope – Peace – Joy – Love

Posted on: November 21st, 2023 by Breslau Mennonite Church

 

Advent marks the beginning of the church year for most churches in the Christian tradition. It begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day. This year, the fourth Sunday of Advent is also Christmas Eve.

Advent is a time to lean into the ways that our faith invites us to watch and wait, as we seek to discern the times, to trust that even when we have questions, God is with us; still then, God is working. Advent is a time when we wonder and wander and wait together, searching for clues of the work that God is doing in our midst.

In this season of short days and long nights, O God,
teach us the lessons of beginnings;
that waiting and wondering may be the starting place —
something right and just and different,
a new song, a deeper relationship, a fuller love.
God of all seasons grant us a sense of your timing this Advent. Amen.

Join in worship Oct 15 – Nov 19 with a focus on peace.

God of peace, you are Creator and Creating no only of humankind, but of all that graces this planet and this universe. We fail our sisters and brothers around the world when our actions cause harm to our world. We humbly open our hearts, minds, and lives to what we can do to be your instruments of peace. Thank you for the assurance that you are with us in this journey. Renew our spirits, as we work to renew our common home. Amen.
