Whether you've been a Christian for years or you're just learning about Jesus, we think you'll find the Brookfield Series helpful. Each month we offer one session in the series, and the sessions may be taken in any order.
You can register using your Welcome Card at our Sunday Service or by e-mailing us at . Free childcare is available by registering in advance. To see which class is next, check our events page.
These classes are also part of the process to become a member of Brookfield Church. After you take the classes, if you feel like Brookfield is your church home, we encourage you to become a member. The purpose of membership is to help individuals grow spiritually through commitment and accountability.
Learning what we believe and how we live it.
People believe all different kinds of things when it comes to religion and spirituality. This session is designed to teach you the basic Christian principles we believe and live by at Brookfield. It's about our theology on the Trinity, what we believe about Jesus, the purpose of the Church, how we remain culturally relevant while theologically conservative, and many other foundational truths that are important for us as Christians to be grounded in.
Growing in forgiveness and maturity.
We all take different paths in life. Many of them lead us through hurt, shame, regret, and pain (sometimes through no fault of our own). You will learn that time doesn't heal every wound; it simply scars many of them over. This session of the Brookfield Series looks at the transformation Jesus does in us as we learn to follow and trust Him. It's about transparency, being known, being healed, maturing spiritually, and ultimately giving Jesus freedom to do what He wants in us.
Discovering your spiritual gifts and how to use them.
Every follower of Jesus has been given spiritual gifts. According to the Bible, spiritual gifts are given to us by Jesus for the common good. The goal is that we would be equipped to help one another grow to maturity and become the people, and the church, that Jesus intends us to be. This session of the Brookfield Series will help you discover more about your spiritual gifts and will help you know the various areas where you might be able to serve and what might be a good fit for you.
Understanding involvement at Brookfield Church.
Every person needs to have real relationship in their lives to do well. This session of the Brookfield Series is about being connected to the local church and relationships with each other. It's about what it means to commit your life to Jesus' mission with other people and not be a "Lone Ranger" Christian. It's about the importance of membership in a Church and learning that the church isn't something we go to on Sunday's; it's who we are every day!
