Brevard-Davidson River Presbyterian

This week we conclude our “A Time to Heal,” with a powerful story from Luke 17:11-19. Sincere thanks to all who helped make our Souper Bowl of Caring outreach event such a rousing success. For more information, go to

Brevard First UMC

An amazing thing happens toward the end of Jesus’ ministry. He has taken several of his disciples to a high mountain, and while they are there suddenly Jesus is transfigured. That means a bright light came from Jesus. Then Moses and Elijah appeared, conversing with Jesus. Soon it was all over. They headed back down the mountain, and Jesus began his journey to Jerusalem and the Cross.

What are we to make of this “mountain-top” moment? Join us in worship this Sunday as we explore its significance for our faith journey.

First UMC continues to worship virtually on Sunday mornings. You can listen to our service over WSQL (102.1 FM and 1240 AM) or watch us on Facebook (

Two special worship experiences will be offered next week, both by way of live streaming on Facebook. Tune in on Monday, Feb. 15, at 6:30 p.m. for another Celtic-themed service of prayer, music and scripture based on the Transfiguration passage in Mark 9:2-9. Then, on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17, also at 6:30, we begin the season of Lent with a service of ashes and repentance.

We hope you will worship with us.

Lutheran Church Of The Good Shepherd

We’ll celebrate Transfiguration Sunday on Feb. 14, with “Uncovering the Masterpiece” based on the Gospel of Mark 9:2-9. The words God spoke to Jesus at his baptism are shared with three of his closest companions. They are beginning to get a glimpse of what will become crystal clear when he is raised from the dead – the beauty of God’s own Son given as a light for all. Let us bask in this moment and then follow him to Jerusalem, where his light will burn bright among the human condition that fails to comprehend his majesty. Join us Sunday for online worship with the Rev. Kenneth Albright at Weather permitting, outdoor Holy Communion services will be held on Feb. 14 at 10 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. Each service is limited to 15 participants, with masks and physical distancing required. Contact the church office to register for one of the services. “Drive-Through Ashes” will be provided on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17, from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m., and again from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Pastor Ken will be outside near the semi-circle driveway at the church entrance to share a blessing with the occupants of each vehicle and mark their foreheads with ashes as the solemn start of our Lenten journey. He will remain masked and sanitize his hands after each car; those wishing to participate should wear masks, as well. To learn more about LCGS, contact the church office at (828) 883-3680 or email us at [email protected] The Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd is located at 22 Fisher Road in Brevard.

Unitarian Universalists

Check out our live-stream Sunday service on Facebook at 10 a.m. As the saying goes, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained!” Go to Want to avoid Facebook? We have a new streaming page on our website. Go to

The speaker will be multiple UU leaders. This week we tune into the national Unitarian Universalist “30 Days of Love” service. What if, to “side with love” meant making bold, faith-full choices? What if it were even a little bit scary? This worship service brings together worship leaders and musicians from across the country to offer hopeful, moving, challenging reminders about what we, as Unitarian Universalists, are called to do, and be, in the world.
