The Faith Book Club at Briensburg UMC meets weekly on Thursdays for lunch and discussion of inspirational books. The club also has a “kitty” to which they contribute for supporting various community projects such as the FYSC, mission trips, children’s Christmas gifts, African wells, and other needs.

Worship & Praise

Join us this Sunday at 11 am for Worship & Praise!

Each Sunday worship celebration is a blend of contemporary and traditional spirituality and includes praise band and testimonies, prayers, creed, Bible readings, sermon, hymns and invitation to Christian discipleship. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday each month and on other holy days. Our worship experiences are very personal, incorporating everyone present into the warm feeling of loving and accepting each other as the family of God.

Council of Bishops’ Letter to the LGBTQ Community

The Council of Bishops sends this Pastoral Letter to all the church, reminding us that we are all one body in Christ and addressing the serious harm being done by “demeaning and dehumanizing comments and attacks on LGBTQ persons.”

We are a diverse group of leaders—conservative, centrist, progressive—however, we are unified in our commitment to work together in ways that will give you and all God’s children strength, comfort and hope for better and more merciful tomorrows.
