150 Years, Now What?

Welcome to Springfield Church of the Brethren. We recently celebrated our 150th anniversary as a congregation, and as I contemplated that feat, I began to think of all the people who have gone before. Having been here just over a year, I can hardly scratch the surface of all it must have involved not just to have survived, but to have also thrived for all these years.

Ultimately I think it comes down to one word. Faithfulness. The people here have done the work. They have done what needs to be done and have been faithful to the call of God in whatever day they lived. They followed Christ and lived to glorify Him, but of course, there is another side to faithfulness. A bigger one, a stronger one, one that is far more than 150 years old. That is the faithfulness of the Ancient of Days, of God Himself. Yes, the one who promised never to leave nor forsake us is always faithful. He guides and provides. He makes it all possible and the true key to thriving as a church is to trust in His faithfulness and to respond with our best effort at faithfulness.

God is faithful. He has been and He always will be. Trust Him and if you want to know more about Him, come and check us out.

May God bless you,

Pastor Dave Weiss
