Brookside Chruch
Reach Relate Respond


Existing to move people closer to God through Jesus Christ, we envision Brookside Children's Ministries to partner with parents to train and equip children to know, grow, and go in Him.

reach - Children bring honor and glory to God through lifestyles and expressions that are God focused and Biblically based.  Children will find our ministry to be a safe place of belonging, where they are known, cared for and encouraged in their spiritual journey and encouraged to love others.
relate - Our ministry provides programming that will build up and strengthen believers to be Christ-like in their Spiritual journey.
respond - Our ministry will provide opportunities for believers to use their Spiritual Gifts to serve the Lord.  Children have opportunities to reach out with love, grace and truth of Christ to those around us and beyond!

  3. Register and check-in your kids at Brookside Boulevard before the service. Our Children’s Check-In Registration Station is located just inside Entrance #3. Registration is open for 30 minutes prior to each service. Drop off at their classrooms begins 15 minutes before services.
  4. Enjoy the Worship Service and/or Adult Bible Fellowship! Worship services are in the worship center located on the north side of the building inside Entrances 1 and 2.
  5. After the service. Stop by the Connection Center to get connected! Enjoy something to drink at the Connections Cafe in the Well. It is generally open an hour before and after each service.
