Family 101

A place where God's unconditional love is changing lives, in the community and in the world.



     Brookside UMC is a family church.  While you will find our service to have the same basic structure week to week, we seek to include worship elements that appeal to multiple generations.  You will hear the traditional pipe organ, praise music and experience music and video together with the Audio/Visual system updated in 2008.  The Bible based preaching is delivered in a relaxed, laid back style with the aim of challenging and engaging both the life-long believer and the first time attender.  The best way to decide whether Brookside’s worship style appeals to you is to come and find out for yourself.  

See you in church!

Why does the church exist? According to Matthew’s Gospel, the risen Christ made it clear: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” (28:19-20).
