Who We Are

Mission

To teach the whole Bible
To worship the God it reveals
To live the beauty of his gospel before people near and far

Vision

1. Our God will be worshiped by men and women, young and old, who realize the treasure that is ours in the gospel.

2. We will experience:

A sense of belonging.

Practical help through life's joys and troubles.

Encouragement to become like Christ in our thoughts, desires, and actions.

Patience from each other as we all struggle to grow.

Opportunities to exercise gifts and talents in ways that matter forever.

3. We will engage others with love, sacrificial service, biblical truth, and courage in culturally attractive ways.

4. Others near and far will see that the gospel is both beautiful and true. Some will become part of our family.

Our Services

What are services like?
Welcome! We are glad you're here, and look forward to getting to know you. We know that it can be difficult to walk into the doors of a church for the first time. Several events at Brick Lane are geared to help you fit in quickly and easily. Sunday Morning Worship begins at 10:30 AM in the Sanctuary or Live Stream. We hope you'll join us. Dress as casual as you like, because the focus isn't on us -- it's on our Lord. Stick around for coffee and conversation, we love meeting new people! Adult Sunday Classe are the first step in getting to know new people. Here is an opportunity to meet other believers in a low-key, relaxed setting, spending an extended period of time in fellowship after the teaching is over. Our Children's Ministry exists to come alongside parents in teaching their children to know and love God. We have nursery for infants and toddlers, Sunday classes for age 2 through 6th grade during the school year, and year-round Children's Worship during the sermon for children in grades PreK - 3. Youth Ministry serves those in grades 7-12 with classes for Junior and Senior High. Sunday Classes run during the school year with times of fellowship, worship, and teaching. The youth also meet on Sunday evenings. Vine and Branches, seeking to connect young adults to Christ as we abide in Him, meets Sunday mornings before worship, as well as during the week for group study and community. Once a month during the school year we hold Welcome Lunches after our worship service, providing a great meal and a chance to briefly learn a bit more what Brick Lane is all about. These low-intensity, informal gatherings are hosted by our small groups and are another great first step for those interested in our church. Sunday Evening Prayer Meeting, which starts promptly at 6 PM, is one of the best ways to get to know others. Praying together in small and large groups allows you to interact with others on a more intimate level. Small Groups The people of Brick Lane who will become your closest friends will be those you meet in a small group. These are offered at various times in a variety of formats, mostly in homes. Newcomers' Class, offered twice a year, explains our church's history, distinctives and vision. While it is a prerequisite for formally joining the church, many folks take it just to get to know us a little better before deciding if this is the church for them.

What is the community like?
Welcome to Brick Lane Community Church. We're a community of men and women, young and old, devoted to following Jesus.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Whether you've been a Christian your whole life or if you've never set foot in a church before and are simply curious about who Jesus is, you are welcome here.

Steve Estes
Senior Pastor

Steve Estes has been senior pastor at Community Evangelical Free Church in Elverson, Pennsylvania, for over twenty-five years. His most significant life achievement was persuading college classmate Verna Stoltzfus to marry him in 1974. They now have eight children. Steve’s books and other writings began with his longtime friendship with Joni Eareckson Tada. As teenagers, they grappled with why God allowed Joni’s paralysis in a swimming accident in the Chesapeake Bay. Steve left for college . . . they kept in touch . . . she liked the style of his letters. When her 1976 autobiography Joni spawned thousands of reader responses, she asked Steve to join her in crafting a follow-up. The result was A Step Further in 1978. Later, Wycliffe Bible Translators commissioned Steve to write the biography of former college friend Chet Bitterman, a Wycliffe linguist who was kidnapped and murdered by political terrorists in Colombia in 1981. Other books and articles followed. Steve was educated at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia and Columbia Bible College (now Columbia International University). He is a board member of the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation and teaches a course on preaching at Westminster Seminary.
