At Brookside, we’re all about helping to develop fully engaged followers of Christ. And in order to develop, we each have to take our next step – our next step toward Christ, toward being the person that he wants us to be. That next step may look different for each and every one of us. But we all have one.
Sometimes those next steps may take the form of an event organized by the church to help inform people and explain aspects of Christianity. We’ve collected the near-term opportunities here for easy reference as you figure out what your next step might look like.
We periodically hold various sessions that might be appropriate for you. Let us know if you are interested in any of the following, and we’ll be sure to get in touch the next time we are holding one of these sessions.

If you have questions about the Christian faith, are a new Christian, or are returning to church for the first time in a while, Starting Point is for you.

One of the primary foundations for belonging, growing and serving are Life Groups. These groups are usually about 8 to 12 people meeting weekly for study or for living out our faith by meeting the needs of others or by just having some fun together.
We have several active groups in different parts of our community. If you might be interested in joining one, let us know and we’ll help figure out what might work best.
