CE MISSION PROJECT FOR OCTOBER

October is Missions Month at Brookside. The children will be leading the congregation in a shared missions project. The Sunday School children will be hosting a fill-a-basket service project to benefit the Interfaith Food Pantry. We will kick off this service project on October 1st during the worship service. The children will begin to collect filled food baskets on November 5th, and we will dedicate the collected goods on Stewardship Sunday, November 12th.


 

LET’S BE FACEBOOK FRIENDLY - "Whenever two or more are gathered in my name, so shall Facebook be there."  Wait a minute, that's not right!  However, with all the great things going on at Brookside we want to make sure they can be shared, and that's what Facebook is for! Please take pictures and share them with our community and church family at  https://www.facebook.com/brooksidechurch

(Please do, to the extent practical, get people's permission first - not practical with crowds, but absolutely necessary with children)
