Join us on the journey at Brookhaven UMC. We invite all people to this Christian community, reflecting the diversity of the Brookhaven neighborhood and the world as we seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world! Our Mission: To invite, empower, and engage others on the journey of discipleship.
Beginning March 9, we will begin our Lenten sermon series exploring the spiritual disciplines of fasting, prayer, sacraments, sabbath-keeping, and faith-sharing. We will see how God can quench our spiritual thirst through regularly coming into his presence. Join us each Sunday at 11AM!
This Lent, we will offer a midweek worship and Communion experience on Wednesdays at 6PM in the library, beginning March 19. Coffeehouse Worship will be a relaxed, come-as-you-are experience featuring music, prayer, meditation and reflection on Scripture, and the Lord's Supper. Coffee and light refreshments are served, and it will last about half an hour. This is a great way to strengthen your spiritual life with a midweek boost, and to experience worship and fellowship in an intimate environment. We hope you will join us!
We will soon be replacing our pew Bibles with the new Common English Bible translation. The CEB was published in 2011 and was the work of over 120 scholars from more than 20 faith traditions. The publisher writes, "A key goal of the translation team was to make the Bible accessible to a broad range of people; it’s written at a comfortable level for over half of all English readers. As the translators did their work, reading specialists working with seventy-seven reading groups from more than a dozen denominations review the texts to ensure a smooth and natural reading experience. Easy readability can enhance church worship and participation, and personal Bible study. It also encourages children and youth to discover the Bible for themselves, perhaps for the very first time."
We are offering opportunities to purchase one of our pew Bibles in honor or memory of a loved one or group. The cost is only $12, and this is a wonderful way to honor someone in your life as we as a church seek to honor God through helping to make the Bible more accessible to everyone! Just go to our secure e-giving portal at donate.brookhavenumc.org and select the pew Bible donation option.
A new Sunday School class is forming that will be exploring the Book of Revelation. This last book of the Bible, more than being just a vision of the future, has a powerful message for how we are to live as faithful disciples today. If you are interested in being a part of this class, contact Pastor Wesley at email@example.com
