Curious as to what this “online church” is all about?  View a short video introducing you to the Living Stream Church of the Brethren by Enten Eller. Yes, this is a new thing we are doing, but it is firmly rooted in the traditions of love, communication, adventure, and respect we have inherited from our roots in the Church of the Brethren.  Please find out more about who we are and hope to be, and how you can connect with us!
If you have questions, feel free to email our pastoral team.

Living Stream COB Congregational Meeting

DSCN9101Save the date! 

Following a shortened worship service on June 26, 2016, we are planning to host a congregational meeting of all Living Streamers that can attend, using both a conference call to link us all together, and a video feed that will be able to show the entire pastoral team and advisory board from wherever in the country they may be.  More details will come closer to the time!

You are invited to journey with us through the Lenten season this year, as we explore a new theme: “Man of Sorrows; Son Who Came.” Who was this man, who walked boldly into Jerusalem, to a painful and lonely death – a Man of Sorrows – and yet also a man whose ministry and resurrection proclaimed a faithfulness to God and God’s people through even the gravest challenges? Who was this man who embodied hope and joy as well as grief and suffering?

Our Lenten worship services will share messages from all your Living Stream pastors as well as several guests, including Samuel Brackett, Rick Polhamus, Bill Christiansen, and Wendy McFadden. With special videos by Sam Gahm to accompany us through Lent this season, we will explore the many angles of a familiar phrase and how the Man of Sorrows may walk beside us in our suffering – and joy – even today.

You are invited to share this holy season with your sisters and brothers in the Living Stream during worship online, either live on Sunday nights or throughout the week through the archives. Join us at this worship event link throughout Lent 2016.
