I Believe Even When: The Unthinkable
Sunday, October 17th - 8:30 & 10:30am Worship
We have the privilege of hearing from one of our own church members, Megan Duggan, this Sunday as she shares about how she lives out her faith and where she sees God in her work in the field of Pediatric Oncology. We hope you will join us to hear Megan's powerful testimony to the strength her faith provides and how she sees God alive and active in the midst of her daily life working with families who are journeying through the unthinkable.
We will have two services with a brief (30 minute) worship in our Outdoor Chapel at 8:30am (weather permitting - in the meetinghouse if it rains) and a 10:30am worship inside our Meetinghouse. We are grateful to our volunteers who will join with us in worship as greeters, ushers, Media Booth worker, Scripture readers and more. We will have the wonderful opportunity to be serenaded by the sounds of nature in our Outdoor Worship and be fed by the sounds of our soloist, Nancy Trew Sugden, at our Worship in the Meetinghouse.
Note: Nursery Care will be available at both worship services, and Church School will meet at 10:30am.

And please plan to sit at a little bit of a distance from those who are not members of your household so we can ensure we are doing all we can to keep everyone safe.

With your help bills have been paid to cover housing costs, medical bills, and emergency repairs as well as to cover other everyday costs like food, gas, and clothing for members & friends of our church and wider community. The Pastors Fund is supported through the honorarium from the funerals/memorials that our pastors officiate, as well as through the generous gifts of members and friends of our community. The Thrift Shop has supported the Pastors Fund with gifts from sale profits, and the Pastors Fund is also one of the options for holiday support through our Virtual Giving Tree this year.

Stewardship Thanks and Reminders
Book of Remembrance
Sunday – October 31st
The cherished memory of a loved one can be honored and the good of the church can be enhanced through gifts to our Book of Remembrance. On Memorial Day weekend and “All Saints” Sundays, these gifts are recognized and dedicated in worship, and those persons are remembered in prayer. The Book of Remembrance appeals to a great many people as a most beautiful and appropriate way to pay tribute to those whom we have loved. Expenditures from the Book of Remembrance Fund are approved by a vote of the congregation for the enhancement of our worship and ministry.
We will lift up the names of those remembered over the last 6 months through gifts to our Book of Remembrance. For more information please call or email the church office at 203-775-1259 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: Deadline for October 31st Book of Remembrance is Monday, October 25th **.
If you wish to donate funds in memory of friends and loved ones, checks can be made payable to “Book of Remembrance” with the name of your loved one in the memo line. Donations can be mailed to:
Book of Remembrance Treasurer
The Congregational Church of Brookfield
160 Whisconier Road, Brookfield, CT 06804
**If you put a donation in the mail that you are not certain will arrive by the deadline, please email Jeannine McCullough, Office Administrator, with the information for your entry into the Book of Remembrance as well.
