Continuing the work of Jesus. Peacefully. Simply. Together.
Around the world, many individuals and families struggle for food and shelter. You can help them achieve a sustainable living by volunteering at the Brethren Service Center in Windsor.
Volunteers will unpack, sort, and prepare for sale the hand-made crafts and other items created by artisans of developing countries. Proceeds from the sale of those crafts provide the artisans and their loved ones with income necessary for food, clothing and shelter.
Volunteers leave from the church parking lot at 7:00 am and return by 4:00 pm.
For questions, or to volunteer and make a lunch reservation, call Robert Delauter at 301-293-2720.
“COME TO THE GARDEN”
WORSHIP & FELLOWSHIP
IN THE MEMORIAL GARDEN AT GCOB
Wednesday evenings during May & June ● 7:00 p.m.
This Spring we are planning Wednesday evening devotions in our beautiful Memorial Garden. The format will be informal – a time of singing, a season of praying together and some reflecting on one of the “I Am” sayings of our Lord from the Gospel of John. There will be refreshments immediately following and, if some children come join in, maybe we’ll even get a kickball out afterwards.
These evenings will be a mid-week opportunity to nourish our faith and have fellowship with our Church family in a beautiful outdoor setting. This will also be an opportunity to invite a friend or neighbor or extended family member who has no Church home to come and worship for a few moments and get a taste of GCOB.
May 9 - “I Am the Bread of Life”

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 2018
For the closing program on Friday evening, July 20, the children will sing some of the VBS songs they have learned. Parents are encouraged to stay with their children Friday evening, as classes will be dismissed from the sanctuary to load onto hay wagons for the traditional closing hayride. Children must be accompanied by an adult to participate in the hayride. After the hayride, everyone will meet back at the parish hall to view the wonderful crafts children have worked on and enjoy an ice cream social.
SAVE THE DATE and watch for additional information regarding registration and to discover what this year's adventure will be.
