Brevard First United
This is one of the powerful stories of grace in the Bible. We know it as the “Parable of the Prodigal Son.” I prefer to speak of the “Prodigal Father”. You see, the word “prodigal” can mean “extravagant”. The wayward son lived an extravagant life of sin, but the expectant father welcomed him home with extravagant love. Jesus told the parable not just to show what we can be like, but rather so we can see what God is like. God is always waiting and ready to welcome us with open arms. This message continues our goal of “Being with God” leading into Holy Week and Easter. Being with God always begins with prayer as we open ourselves to experience all that God wants to give us. Brevard First UMC will host Bread of Life’s annual “Empty Bowl” fundraiser on Saturday, March 26. Brevard First UMC is a welcoming congregation with a heart for missions and service. We are located on Broad Street opposite Brevard College and are now fully back in person with three worship services on Sunday mornings: 8.30am and 10.55am (traditional) in the church sanctuary, and 9am (celebration and praise) in the Hall of Friends. Additionally, you can watch the 10:55 a.m. service streamed live on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BrevardFirstUnitedMethodistChurcho.Or you can listen on WSQL Radio (104 FM and 1240 AM).
We invite you to join us in person for worship on this fourth Sunday of Lent. This Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., Dr. Steve Eason will preach from Scripture, Luke 15:1-3; 11-32b.
