We welcome you to join us at any one of these events this Advent and Christmas!
We are delighted to announce that Amy Warden has accepted the position of Director of the Brick Church School, effective August 1, 2019. This announcement caps a six-month comprehensive search process that began in April when Lydia Spinelli announced her intention to retire. Amy’s expertise and consistent passion for early childhood education during her five-year tenure as Associate Director, as well as strong support from current and past parents of the Church School and from the faculty, make Amy the ideal next Director. Her knowledge, experience and vision align with the core values of the school and key areas for evolution; hence, she was the enthusiastic and unanimous choice for our next Director.
The Brick Church is fortunate to be situated in a safe area, surrounded by good neighbors. Additionally, we are not a congregation under particular threat as, unfortunately, many others are, including Jewish and Muslim places of worship. On Oct. 21, before the tragic events in Pittsburgh, a Task Force met to review security procedures at Brick Church. An initial recommendation was to add Security Guard hours to our Sunday mornings. Our wonderful weekday Security Guard, Gavin, began Sunday, Nov. 4. Gavin already knows many church members and School families. If you have not met him, please introduce yourself. Welcome, Gavin!

From October through May, join us in the Chapel of the Reformed Faith for a 30-minute service of worship and communion on Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m. Each week a different minister presents a short sermon, and the Wednesday Evening Choir made up of adult and youth volunteers performs. It’s a great opportunity to give glory to God and further connect with The Brick Church community.
