Service Sunday theme for 2008 recalls early Brethren motto.

The Church of the Brethren’s Service Sunday is scheduled for Feb. 3, 2008. This special Sunday is recognized annually on the first Sunday in February. The 2008 theme is, “For the Glory of God and My Neighbor's Good,” a motto from the Sauer Press. The scripture text focus is Mark 12:28-31.

Service Sunday is a time for congregations to remember, celebrate, explore, and continue in opportunities of service. The sponsoring programs of the Church of the Brethren General Board are Brethren Disaster Ministries, the Brethren Service Center in New Windsor, Md., Brethren Volunteer Service, and Youth and Young Adult Workcamps.

Resources are available online, by authors Jerry O'Donnell, 2008 workcamp co-coordinator; Rebekah Houff, coordinator for the National Young Adult Conference in 2008; Jon Zunkel, a Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) worker serving in Northern Ireland; Dana Cassell, a BVS worker serving in the General Board’s Ministry Office; and Roma Jo Thompson, a retired Brethren mission worker who served in Nigeria.
