Lent is a season on the Christian calendar that is a time of preparation and repentance during which we anticipate Good Friday and Easter. This year during Lent we are continuing a series studying the Gospel of Mark (see Pastor’s Notes).
Join us each Sunday for worship at 9:30 a.m.!
Lenten Psalm 51 challenge
During this season of Lent, the Brookfield CRC congregation is taking on a “Lenten Challenge” to memorize Psalm 51 together. Each week we’ll be reading the Psalm together, removing a few more words and phrases from the Psalm on the screen until we’ll be reciting it completely from memory. Of course, this won’t work without putting a little work into it between Sundays. So paste it on the mirror, work on it during your morning commute, read it twice a day with your children—do whatever it takes. But join us as we take God’s truth, and “plant it deep” in our hearts and minds. Read Psalm 51 >
Read (or listen to) the Bible in a year
Members of Brookfield CRC are reading through the Bible in one year as a congregation. Check out our Read the Bible page to download a checklist dividing the Bible into the Epistles on Sunday, the Law on Mondays, History on Tuesdays, Psalms on Wednesdays, Poetry on Thursdays, Prophecy on Fridays, the Gospels on Saturdays. Not a reader? You’ll also find a link to a free audio app, and other options. Won’t you join us?
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 >
