This is our Prayer

We pray that The Brook will be a refreshing church, not because we are a new church, but because we are like the original church. We want to focus on connecting people to Jesus, to other believers, and to their purpose to reach the world. It is our aim to be refreshers because we believe connecting to Christ leads to a refreshing in our souls.

Please join us this weekend!
