At the North Brandon church of Christ, you may expect to be treated as an honored and respected guest. You will not be embarrassed in any way. People are often hesitant to visit an unfamiliar worship assembly. We want you to feel comfortable and welcome at all of our assemblies. You are welcome to participate, but you’re under no obligation. You may be asked to fill out a visitor’s card so we can write or call to thank you for your visit.
We seek to follow the simple and spiritual pattern of collective worship found in the New Testament. We limit our collective activities to those for which we can establish clear Biblical authority (1 Corinthians 4:6). Our worship consists only of those activities authorized by command or example in the New Testament. Throughout our service, two principles govern all that we do:
“Let all things be done for edification” (I Corinthians 14:25)
“Let all things be done decently and in order” (I Corinthians 14:40)
There are five components of our worship assembly:
Communion: On every Sunday we assemble to observe the Lord’s Supper, a memorial established by Jesus Himself to commemorate His death on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
Prayer: We offer prayers of supplication and thanksgiving (1 Timothy 2:1-8; Acts 2:42; 1 Thessalonians 5:17)
Singing: We praise God and edify one another through a cappella (non-instrumental) singing (Colossians 3:16). We sing to praise God and to exhort and encourage one another. (Ephesians 5:19)
Preaching and teaching: Accurate and relevant Bible teaching is an important element of our assemblies. We believe that we should have Scriptural authority for everything that we do as Christians and as a church. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and it is all that we use to determine our practices and beliefs. (Titus 2:1-2; 2 Timothy 4:2-5)
Giving: In our Sunday assembly, our members give as they have been prospered in order to meet the needs of the Lord’s church in teaching and benevolence. This opportunity is a right and responsibility of our members and not a solicitation to our visitors. Our guests are neither asked nor expected to participate. (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; II Corinthians 9:7)
We offer Bible Classes for all ages – from infant through adult – on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. All of these classes are Bible-based and their purpose is to help individuals gain a better knowledge of the Bible and its practical application to one’s life.
Free written material on Bible topics is available in our lobby, and you may request free audio recordings of the sermon. We are also happy to arrange personal Bible studies at your convenience.
We simply ask that you “Come and see.” (John 1:46). Be our guest for a few weeks – observe, ask questions, get acquainted, and prayerfully consider the things that you see and hear. We look forward to seeing you at North Brandon!

"Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.” I Timothy 5:17
Churches of Christ recognize Christ as the only head of his church (Ephesians 1: 22, 23). Their headquarters is in Heaven where He is.
On earth, churches of Christ, according to the New Testament pattern, are organized locally in congregations (Romans 16: 16). Each local congregation is under the oversight of a specially qualified and appointed group of men called elders (Acts 14: 23; 20: 17). They are also identified in the New Testament by the terms bishops/overseers (Titus 1: 5 – 9), presbytery (1 Timothy 4: 14 KJV), shepherds and pastors (1 Peter 5: 1 – 4; Ephesians 4: 11).
The work of the elders is to shepherd the flock (congregation), watching for their souls (Hebrews 13; 17), guarding those under their charge from false teachers, feeding the flock spiritually, and overseeing the affairs of the congregation (Acts 20: 28 – 30; Titus 1: 9 – 11).
Our young people are not only our future but they are our present! We must be committed to teaching them, encouraging them, and providing an environment conducive for building their faith today. The earlier in life a person makes a connection with the Lord Jesus Christ, the more likely it is they will remain faithful later in life.
We have a great group of young people of all ages at North Brandon who stay busy in our first-rate Bible class program as well as any number of programs and activities designed to build their faith and their relationship with each other and other Christian young people. Among those efforts are:
If you are a young person in our area, or a parent with children, you’ll find our emphasis on spiritual activities a great help and a lot of fun.
Come join us as we change the world one young person at a time!
The Young at Heart is a group of older Christians at North Brandon who enjoy being together. Whether the number on any occasion is large or small, those present are glad to share their lives with others in ways that glorify Christ.
Part of the joy of Young at Heart is getting together for a meal. Sometimes that involves going to a favorite restaurant in Brandon or the area. On occasion, a brief day trip may combine the meal with a visit to an interesting tourist or historical attraction. Potlucks or themed meals at the church building are also a hit with the group. Sharing a meal, whether great or small, draws the Young at Heart together.
The Young at Heart find time to study God’s Word together either in a devotional or some special study. Understanding how the Bible applies to older members of Christ is a rewarding experience.
Serving others who need help is another great part of being Young at Heart. Sometimes that service involves providing meals, clothing, and supplies for others who are elderly, or for children who are in need. Knowing what can happen when Christians pool their efforts to help others motivates the Young at Heart as they serve.
If one considers himself or herself “young” enough, the door is open to join-in with the Young at Heart of North Brandon!
