The Story of the Week is designed to share with you what fellow Brethren individuals, groups and churches are doing around the globe.  But we need your stories, testimonies and photos so that we may do that.
Have you been involved in an outreach effort?  Has your group or congregation discovered new ways to reach your community with the love of Christ?  Has God done some amazing work in the life of our family lately?  Has the Holy Spirit prompted you to begin a new ministry or event for Christ?
Let us know so that we can share with others about the good things God is doing in the Brethren Church!  Just send your stories to:  brethren@brethrenchurch.org

The weekly update is a weekly e-publication of the Brethren Church highlighting a quick story of kingdom movement and impact amongst the Brethren and a reinforcing resource for further reflection and application. We would love to hear your stories.  Contact Paula Strickland at 877-289-1708 or paula@brethrenchurch.org.
