As followers of Christ we are called to live beyond ourselves for the sake of others, intentionally serving those around us, both inside and outside the church. At The Brook, we partner with local, North American, and global ministries, in order to provide opportunities to serve others and advance God’s Kingdom in each of these areas.
Lunches of Love
In the land of plenty, it is hard to believe that there are children going hungry every day! The Brook partners with Mission Firefly and local schools to identify students who meet the criteria to receive a bag of food each Friday to take home for the weekend. Many of these children are “food insecure,” which means that they don’t know where their next meal is coming from. There are several ways you can partner with us in this ministry. Donating food is one way you can help, but volunteers are also needed to pack food bags for children and deliver them to the school. If you are interested in serving with Lunches of Love, please contact Sue Ann McCoy. You can find the list of items needed for the bags HERE.
King’s Table is a ministry of The Brook that is seeking not only to eradicate hunger, but also (and even more importantly), to share the Gospel with people in our community. Through the generosity of our church family, we are able to meet the emergency food needs of many individuals and families as well. If you would like to know more about how you, your family, or your missional community can get involved with King’s Table, please contact Beth Cox.
Foster Family Support
One of the ways that The Brook is committed to serving people in our community is by coming alongside foster families, praying for them, and demonstrating Christ's love to them by helping to meet practical needs that come up as they care for the children in their homes. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can help us in our efforts to support foster families.
Community Serve Days
Several times a year, our church family comes together on a Saturday morning to be the hands and feet of Christ by serving our community. Please be on the lookout for these dates and how to sign up to join us.
Street Reach – Memphis, Tennessee
We have partnered with the Memphis-based ministry called Street Reach since 2014. This partnership allows us the opportunity to be salt and light in the spiritually dark area of inner-city Memphis, Tennessee. Through Backyard Bible Clubs in the mornings and community service projects in the afternoons, we seek to penetrate the darkness with the love and hope of Christ. This year, the dates we will be serving with Street Reach are July 14 - 19. The signup deadline is April 17. Get more information and sign up HERE.
Casas por Cristo - San Raymundo, Guatemala
We have been working in Guatemala with an organization called Casas por Cristo since 2011. Casas por Cristo exists to open the door for local pastors and churches to share the love of Jesus Christ by serving. Their mission is to build and serve. This year, we will be taking a team to work in San Raymundo, Guatemala on June 15. During that week, team members will work with CpC leaders to build 2 homes for families who currently have no home. No building experience is necessary to go on this trip. Get more information and sign up HERE.
We have been working with a ministry partner, taking teams to share the Gospel in India since 2014. We cannot go into great detail about our trips or our ministry partner online. But we ask for you to pray about going to share the Good News with people in this country who so desperately need to hear it! This year we will be sending another team in February 2020. Our Missions Minister, Sue Ann McCoy, can provide more information about opportunities to join a trip to India.
In 2018, we began a new relationship with a ministry in Nepal that trains pastors and ministry leaders to reach unreached people groups in the Himalayas. We cannot go into great detail about our trips or our ministry partner online. However, if are interested in helping us reach these people who need Jesus, please contact Sue Ann McCoy.
