Welcome to the Florin Church of the Brethren and thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to spend some time here for a brief introduction to who we are and to find out more about our history and what we believe.
In 1954 Florin became a stand-alone congregation. Prior to that time the Florin and West Green Tree churches were one congregation that met in three meetinghouses. Those three meetinghouses were located in Rheems, Florin and West Green Tree.
From 1954 till 1968 Florin was lead by a team of unpaid ministers, which in the Brethren tradition has been known as the “free ministry”. In 1959 our current church was constructed and in 1968 we called our first paid minister. In 1991 we dedicated a new addition to the church facility, which currently houses our gym, kitchen, and several classrooms.
Our congregation has been and remains very committed to serving the needs of our local community and demonstrating Christ’s love to others. We invite you to join us in worship and hope that you find a welcoming body of believers to grow closer to God and one another with.
