Join us for Sunday worship: 9:30AM, 5:00PM.
Join us for Sunday morning worship as we study the Old Testament book of I Samuel in a series entitled “In Need of a King”. Together we’ll explore Israel’s dearth of godly leadership that was finally resolved by God’s provision of King David, from whom descended our one true king, Jesus. In our evening worship services we are studying the Old Testament book of Judges. Regular Sunday worship services are at 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
“Life Groups” (small groups) are a great place for your spiritual growth and for finding genuine community with others in the church. You can sign up at the Welcome Center now through September 28. Would you like to find a Life Group that fits you? For more information, visit our Life Groups page, or e-mail Paula Coldagelli.

City Reformed Church to officially organize
We give praise to God that our church plant, City Reformed Church was supported by Classis Wisconsin in her quest to become an organized congregation! City Reformed will move ahead soon with the selection of elders and deacons to serve as her first Council. There will be a combined service of celebration at some point involving our two churches.

Adult education: “True Spirituality”
For many Christians, our Sunday morning worship experience doesn't always line up with our Monday through Saturday “reality”. Many of us find ourselves feeling stuck, frustrated, and fatigued by a world that is activity-heavy and relationship-light. Please join us on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. in Adult Education as we discover together what it looks like to be a Romans 12 (R-12) follower of Jesus. Led by Rick Britton, this class will be based on the video series, “True Spirituality: Becoming a Romans 12 Christian” by Chip Ingram, and presents a compelling Biblical picture of what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus. If you miss a session, audio recordings are available on our Listen > Adult Ed page.
Ebola crisis in West Africa
World Renew, an agency of the Christian Reformed Church, is working with local partners in Sierra Leone and Liberia to respond to the Ebola crisis in West Africa.

The Brookfield CRC Deacons will accept any donations to World Renew, just mark your check or envelope with: World Renew-Ebola Crisis. If you are not attending services to put your donation in the collection plate, please mail it to ATTN: Treasurer, Brookfield CRC, 14135 W. Burleigh Road, Brookfield, WI 53005.
