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!
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!
