Join us for Sunday worship: 9:30AM, 5:00PM.
This year during Lent, in the Sunday morning worship services we are studying Ephesians 4-5, and what it means to be A Transforming Community (see Pastor’s Notes). On Sunday, March 16, we will celebrate the sacrament of The Lord’s Supper. In our evening services, we’re going through the book of Revelation. Regular Sunday worship services are at 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
On Sunday evening, March 16, Brookfield CRC will host a hymn festival, to sing hymns from Lift Up Your Hearts, the new hymnal published by the Christian Reformed Church. The festival is designed to tell the story from creation to Jesus’ coming again. The service will begin at 5:00 p.m., followed by a light supper in West Hall. If you would like to be part of a choir to introduce some of the hymns, please join us on Sunday, March 9 and 16, at 11:15 a.m. in the sanctuary for a short rehearsal. Please sign up on the sheet in the hall by the coffee kitchen, or email the church office if you are interested in bringing soup or bread for the supper, or if you are interested in being part of the choir. We look forward to this time of worship and fellowship!
GEMS supporting Esther School in Zambia
GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior) is collecting spare change through the month of April to benefit the Esther School in Zambia. In 2009, the GEMS ministry began construction on a Christian day school for orphaned and under-resourced children in Zambia. The school doors officially opened in September 2012. This past January a violent storm damaged several buildings on the campus. Brookfield CRC GEMS are raising funds to repair some of the storm damage. Please bring your change and place it in the collection cans around church. To find out more about the Esther School visit www.estherschool.org.
