COMMUNITY AND SPIRITUAL LIFE

This month at Brite, we are exploring what it means to embody justice.  Last week, we heard a phenomenal message from The Rev. Dr. James Forbes, “The Answer to the Soul’s Eternal Question.” If you missed it or any of our other past sermons, check out Brite’s YouTube Channel (can you imbed the link please)!  This week, we will hear from one of our very own, Vance Halfaker, an M.Div. student.  Singer, songwriter, and producer JChris will be joining us once again and leading us in a dynamic worship experience.  See you at 11a on Tuesday!

Community Conversation is now every first Tuesday at 7p.  Please mark your calendars for a special election night Community Conversation on Tuesday, November 3rd.

As we prepare for our upcoming elections, please save the date for Praying the Hours with Brite.  Faculty, staff, and students will offer a prayer to the community each hour on Tuesday, November 3rd.  More information to come!

Bring your coffee and snack and meet us at Coffee Hour each week on Thursdays at 11a!

 

15TH ANNUAL CHILI COOK ALONG

How does that work, you ask? Great question! This year, we will also be having a live chili cook along lead by our very own Vance Halfaker. After registering for the event HERE, you will be emailed an ingredient list in order to cook along with Vance live on Zoom. If you don’t feel like cooking, that’s okay too.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of entries, the competitive portion of the event has been canceled.

Join us on October 19th from 5:30 to 7:30PM for some food and fun! (Bring Your Own Food!) OPEN HOUSE
