Hi, welcome to the Naperville Church of the Brethren! You can join us for worship each Sunday morning at 9:30am via Zoom, YouTube or in-person worship. We are conveniently located in the city of Naperville, at 1020 W. Jefferson Avenue. We make every effort to make our worship services meaningful, uplifting, and encouraging. As our state has recently lifted some Covid-19 restrictions, we continue to make it possible for everyone to experience the fellowship and Biblical teaching that keeps our faith strong, which is more important now than ever. Please feel free to join us.
“ …they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright …” - Psalm 92: 13b-15 (NIV)
Our Zoom Senior Virtual Gatherings are designed to serve the social, emotional and spiritual needs of senior adults. We want to ensure that no one is lost or forgotten, even if they are confined at home or in an assisted living facility. Many seniors are sometimes just lonely. This ministry seeks to address this need for connection and fellowship. We seek to partner with our seniors to deepen their journey of faith and improve their integration into our community.
We look forward to restarting our gatherings in 2022.
We the Naperville Church of the Brethren, a multicultural congregation, recognize the racial tensions throughout the nation and we stand to actively fight against it. As a multicultural church, we recognize the uniqueness of individuals from various cultural backgrounds and wish to acknowledge the unique life experiences of each person’s culture.
As a peace church with our emphasis on “Living peacefully, simply and together,” we need to live out these fundamental Brethren traditions. The scriptures are clear about equality as expressed in Galatians 3:28. "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus." These current racial tensions compel us to live out our peace witness as a church by speaking out about racial injustice and actively participate in uplifting people in black and brown communities who face racial discrimination.
We will also take concrete steps to correct each other when we see acts of discrimination among ourselves and hold each other accountable.
