Youth Ministries

Do you have school age children or just appreciate the vitality young people bring to a church service? We believe young people make our church world “go ‘round”. Brookside Church currently has over 40 children participating in our Sunday school program. These children participate in their own initiative called Brookside Kids Care. In this unique program, every church school class serves the wider world. Offerings and many classroom activities center around service projects the children choose themselves. At a young age, our children know how they can make a difference in the lives of others!

Here is a sample of the projects in which our youth have made that difference:

  • Brought cheer and energy to local nursing homes.
    Served meals in the Morristown Community Soup Kitchen
  •  Gave bees, llamas, chickens and goats to needy people around the world through the Heifer Project.
  • Made colorful placemats for people in a local homeless shelter
  • Raised funds for Kopila Valley Children’s Home and School in Surkhet, Nepal

Additionally, each Christmas our church school offers “Alternative Gifts for Christmas”. Participants buy “gifts”, for example, of a week of groceries for a family at a food pantry, or help with planting ten seedlings to reforest weather ravaged areas. In 2011, Brookside raised and donated a total of $1,290 toward this worthy cause.

If you feel your children would benefit themselves by doing for others, Brookside Community Church will offer them that opportunity!
