Mission Groups at Brookmeade

Your Church Council and other congregational leaders have been working to reorganize the structure of Brookmeade to make our church more responsive, more focused and — especially — to make our work less cumbersome and more joyous. The result: Four fabulous Mission Groups!

You may have questions

What is a mission group?

A mission group is a re-imagining of church work and especially church committee work. The mission of each group is to carry out a part of Brookmeade’s mission.

What are the Brookmeade Mission Groups?

Worship & Gathering — Our mission: Welcoming people into inspiring and inclusive Sunday worship worship services — by planning all the worship services, and staffing the roles needed to create good worship and offering an extravagant welcome.

Community Life — Our mission: Creating community in the congregation — by planning events and occasions to gather and by nurturing all the communities within our congregation.

Christian Education/Growing & Learning — Our mission: Growing and maturing the congregation’s spiritual life and awareness — by offering learning opportunities for children, youth, and adults.

Mission & Outreach — Our mission: Sending people out from our community into their communities to share God’s love enthusiastically and courageously — by connecting people’s abilities, talents and spiritual gifts with opportunities for service and generosity.

Can I join a group? Yes please do join one of the groups! We are hoping that all Brookmeaders will join one of the four Mission Groups.

Which Mission Group can I join?

You get to decide! Join the group that sounds like the most fun — or the group that generates some energy and ideas in you — or the group that drafts you. Draft?! In other words, someone might ask you to join their group. If you want to, join that one!
