Prayer Room

Find a quiet place to pray at Browncroft in the Prayer Room. Located near the west entrance, to the right of the sanctuary, this dedicated room is available whenever the church is open.

After each Sunday worship service, Browncroft has a Prayer Minister ready to pray with you or for you in the Prayer Room, which is located in the hall to the right of the Sanctuary as you enter. Privacy is important to us, so be assured that any requests shared will be kept in confidence.

Ladies Missionary Fellowship

The Missionary Fellowship groups are a meaningful avenue of prayer and service for those who want to actively participate in Browncroft’s mission program.
