We are also planning a special worship service on Sunday, April 30, focusing on Psalm 51—which we just memorized together as a congregation. If, in the process of memorizing the Psalm, you encountered questions about the meaning of this or that, please email those questions to the church office so we can try to answer some of them on April 30. Join us for Sunday morning worship at 9:30 a.m.
Sunday Night Special
Please mark your calendars for Sunday, June 4 at 5:00 p.m. That night, Christian leaders from Milwaukee will be bringing to Brookfield CRC a powerful Removing Racial Residue program developed by City on a Hill, a faith-based nonprofit that is transforming lives in one of Milwaukee’s poorest neighborhoods. Come prepared to have your eyes opened, your hearts moved, and your cross-cultural skills increased by the stories they tell, the object lesson they share, and the steps they teach us. Learn how to be part of the solution to one of the most persistent problems in our society, and demonstrate the reconciling power of the gospel to people all around you!
Brookfield Christian School Society meeting
Brookfield Christian School’s State of the School and All School Society Meeting will be held on Thursday, April 27, at 7:00 p.m. in the BCS Cafeteria. Members of Brookfield CRC are automatically included in the Brookfield Christian School Society. This means is that you have the opportunity to vote for school board members as well as the school budget. A copy of the society booklet was sent via e-mail this week. Hard copies are available in the church or BCS office. We hope that you will be able to attend and learn more about BCS!
Annual congregational meeting
Brookfiled CRC members and regular attenders: Please save the evening of Wednesday, May 17 to attend our annual congregational meeting. The Counil will review the past year, present the 2017-2018 budget for approval, and we’ll elect new elders and deacons. More details to come.
Adult Education Hour
Join us on Sunday mornings (11:00-11:45 a.m, North Hall) for a series on “Reconciling Faith and Science.” Many of us struggle with a perceived conflict between faith and science and how to relate the findings of science to the content of Scripture. We wonder how the findings of biology and astronomy relate to early Genesis and the biblical account of creation and humanity. We will examine a number of issues where tension is found between faith and science, as well as considering a proper understanding more broadly between the relation of faith and science. We hope you will join us for this important series. Need to catch up? Listen online >
Churches Without Borders
On Saturday, May 20, from 9:30 .am. to 12:00 p.m., City Reformed Church is hosting an interactive workshop called Church Without Borders which presents a new way to talk about immigration from a Biblical perspective. In reflecting on the biblical mandate to welcome the stranger, participants will consider how personally, and as a congregation, we fit into this opportunity. More information will follow. Questions? Contact Paula Coldagelli.
