Hi, my name is Byrl Shaver and I am the pastor here at Nappanee, my wife, Janet Shaver is the pastor at Middlebury Church of the Brethren in Middlebury, In.

As, you may guess we lead a very busy life serving two churches, but we love it.

Nappanee Church is filled with great people who love Jesus and hospitality. We serve two meals weekly to the community on Monday and Thursday from 5-6PM. We call these meals: Free Community Walk-In Meals and they are as the name implies FREE, no strings attached. We serve these meals in conjuntion with Faith Mission of Elkhart county and love the relationship that we have built with them to be able to serve these meals in Nappanee. YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO COME TO ANY OR ALL MEALS.

Here at Nappanee Church you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on Loving God and Loving Others
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age

    * Hymn:       “Come, We That Love The Lord”  #733

    1. Come, we that love the Lord, and let our joys be known; join in a song with sweet accord, join in a song with sweet accord and thus surround the throne, and thus surround the throne.


    We're marching to Zion, beautiful, beautiful Zion; we're marching upward to Zion, the beautiful city of God.

    2. Let those refuse to sing who never knew our God; but children of the heavenly King, but children of the heavenly King may speak their joys abroad, may speak their joys abroad. (Refrain)

    3. The hill of Zion yields a thousand sacred sweets before we reach the heavenly fields, before we reach the heavenly fields, or walk the golden streets, or walk the golden streets. (Refrain)

    4. Then let our songs abound, and every tear be dry; we're marching through Emmanuel's ground, we're marching through Emmanuel's ground, to fairer worlds on high, to fairer worlds on high. (Refrain)


    Offering Prayer: (Homiletics Online)

    Gracious God, who gives and gives and gives to us again, hear our plea for one more gift: a generous spirit, that we may find and use and return to you all that you have given us, ordinary and extraordinary, for you are the source and gift of life itself. Amen.

    Praise Song: “On Eagle’s Wings”  #596 (143)

    And God will raise you up on eagles' wings Bear you on the breath of dawn Make you to shine like the sun And hold you in the palm of God’s hand

    *Hymn:                             “Sweet Sweet Spirit”                            #334

    There's a sweet sweet spirit in this place; And I know that it's the spirit of the Lord. There are sweet expression on each face; And I know that it's the presence of the Lord!
    Sweet holy spirit; Sweet heavenly dove; Stay right here with us
    Filling us with your love. And for this blessings, We lift our hands in praises. Without a doubt we know, That we have been revived,
    When we shall leave this place.


    *Closing Chorus:   " Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”   (#348)

    Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face! And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace


    (*)=Please stand as you are able.
