The Brookland Church is committed to serving this present age by meeting the spiritual, physical, economic and social needs of the people of God. We are our brother's keeper and as such, we provide ways for you to get involved with helping to meet the challenges that impact our local community. You can help by volunteering your time in support of our Community Services Programs. Through volunteering, you can assist those persons who are in need.
The 500 Club is a small but vital ministry. The core members are only visible during a specific time of the year. They volunteer their time during the Christmas holiday season. The members come together each October to discuss and decide a menu, vendors, location of activity, and date to distribute the Annual Christmas Food Baskets. Over the past 25+ years-the ministry has provided meals for 200-450 people during each Christmas season.
To provide food items to the Senior Citizen population of the Brookland Baptist Church and the local community that will result in a nutritious meal for the Christmas holiday season.
* First meeting will be a called meeting in October.
* Annual Christmas Food Baskets will be distributed on one of the Saturdays in December prior to Christmas day.
