Welcome to The Brook

The Brook United Methodist Church was established in 2022.

Our goal is to bring people to Jesus Christ by example and outreach. 

We encourage spiritual growth through fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.  

 Ways to Give 

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
