As we enter this year’s season of stewardship, we are reminded that stewardship is an important spiritual practice. Our mantra for this season is discover, imagine, become: “Discover who we are. Imagine who we can be. Become our best selves together.” At times, it may be challenging. It will take patience and care. If we begin with faith—not only faith in God but faith that God has faith in us—then we can believe that all of the pieces will fit somehow. When each of us work to discover how our time, talents, and treasure fit into the wider picture of who God is calling us to become, Brookside Community Church can be our best yet!

Everyone in our community should receive a stewardship letter in the mail, along with a brochure and a pledge card. The stewardship brochure and pledge cards will also be provided in the pews during our Sunday services.

You can help Brookside Community Church achieve our goal of becoming our best yet. Your support is crucial to our efforts to become who God is calling us to be. Please review the pledging and budget information provided in the brochure to help guide you.

Please complete and return your pledges by our Celebration Sunday this Sunday, November 18, 2018.

Feel free to send your completed pledge card in the mail, return it to the office, or bring it with you to service on Sunday.

STEWARDSHIP UPDATE

Our Stewardship campaign for 2019 is well underway with a total of $134,460 being received as of Wednesday, November 14. If you have already submitted your pledge card, many thanks.

RAMP BRUNCH

As you know, Brookside Community Church has helped sponsor the Refugee Assistance Morris Partners or RAMP mission in our area. We have helped two families to adjust to their new lives in our country and we are now adding a third family. They are newly arrived and we have invited the couple along with Tom Graham, the RAMP representative, to join us on November 4 during our service. We will get a chance to learn about the program and the family and celebrate with a brunch afterwards in their honor.  Missions/Growth will supply the drinks, bagels and dessert.  See the Sign Up sheet in Scialla Hall or respond via Sign Up Genius below. This will be a wonderful way to say welcome.  Thank you in advance for all the great food!

It will not only be very informative but exciting and energizing, challenging us to imagine all the things our congregation can become together.

ATTN: Special Congregational Meeting—Sunday, Oct 7th

Following our Communion Service on Sunday, October 7th, Brookside Church will kick off our Fall 2018 Stewardship Drive with a special congregational meeting. Pastor Lois and Amy will have activities for the children.

During this short meeting, we will have a presentation that will highlight the things we most value about our congregation and what resources are needed for us to be at our very best together. Based on a new stewardship strategy that emphasizes transparency and broader participation, this meeting will be led by our Interim Minister, Rev. Michael Howard, and our Moderator, Paul Breda.

It will not only be very informative but exciting and energizing, challenging us to imagine all the things our congregation can become together.

Mark your calendars and spread the word: Sunday, October 7th, following our Communion Sunday service.

COMMUNITY SOUP KITCHEN NEWS

Our next opportunity for BCC to serve at the Community Soup Kitchen in Morristown is Saturday, November 17th.  Look for the Sign Up Genius to volunteer as a server (11:15am-1:00pm) or Black Shirt (9:30am-1:00pm), or simply text Judy Schryver at 973-727-1480. If you'd like to work in the kitchen helping to prepare the meal you need to become a "Black Shirt", which involves training to understand food safety- plus you'll get a spiffy black t-shirt to signify your kitchen status. Black Shirts arrive before the servers to bring groceries supplied by BCC and to help prepare the day's lunch. If you'd like to become a Black Shirt, the next training will be Sunday November 18th from 1:00 - 2:00pm.  Please text Judy Schryver at 973-727-1480 if you'd like to join the elite rank of Black Shirt!
