Demonstrating Christ’s love to those that are hurting
We have a dedicated group of prayer warriors who are notified of requests within the congregation. Please let us know how we can pray for you, your family or others who are a part of the Browncroft family by submitting the form below.
PRAYER & PRAISE

When someone is experiencing a trying life circumstance, the question is commonly asked "What can I do for you?" This can apply to a death in the immediate family, the birth of a newborn, recovery from a difficult medical procedure (following surgery, chemotherapy, etc.) or other such situations.
One practical means of assisting someone is by providing a meal - a very necessary but sometimes difficult task. If you're receptive to receiving a group request by email, please email email@example.com. When the need arises, you'll be provided a link to their Meal Train when a need exists, describing their circumstance, a listing of available dates, what meals others are providing, dietary restrictions, delivery location and time, etc.
Together we can band together as a community of faith to help each other in times of need.
JOB TRANSITION SUPPORT
Given our current economic disruption, you may find yourself in a job/career transition. Browncroft has established a team of volunteers with relevant professional experience who are interested to offer support and perspective in your job/career search process. Depending on your situation, topics may include developing and expanding a search strategy, using tools to improve job search tactics, refining your resume, preparing for and coming across well in interviews, etc. If you are interested in this confidential support, please email Jay Swieringa (Congregational Care Director) at firstname.lastname@example.org to get connected with a volunteer from this team.
HOSPITAL OR SHUT-IN VISITATION
Even though visits are not currently permissible in health-care facilities, we remain concerned in knowing who are in a hospital, nursing home, assisted living facility or in your home. Click here to notify us of yourself, a family member or another attender of Browncroft, especially those within your small group. Mention will be made in our weekly prayer sheet.
"For he has not despised or scorned the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help." Psalm 22:24
