Potluck Supper & Stewardship Presentation

September 23, 5:30-8 pm

Join us for a potluck supper and inspirational stewardship presentation, From Tippers to Joyful Givers by the Rev. Paul Nickerson in Fellowship Hall. We will be joined by friends from First Congregational Church, UCC.


Bring a salad, main dish, or dessert to share and enjoy an evening of fellowship. Signup sheets are in the narthex and Fellowship Hall to let others know what you are bringing so we can have a balance of salads, main dishes and desserts.

Monday Matters #1

September 28, 6:30 – 8:00 pm

We will meet upstairs in the Library/Lounge area, the UCC Synod Resolutions: What They Are and What They Mean for You. Pastor Dawn will review what happened during Thirtieth General Synod, give a brief overview about the United Church of Christ, of which Brookside is a covenanted member, and how we relate to the wider church locally and nationally.


Monday Matters #2

October 19, 26, & November 2, 6:30 – 8:00 pm

Rabbi Beth Davidson and Pastor Dawn will be leading a discussion for Temple Adath Yeshurun and Brookside on Short Stories by Jesus by Amy-Jill Levine, University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School. We will meet in Manning House.


The book is readily available at bookstores and Amazon and the church library has one to be shared by those who may not want to purchase it. Here is a summary of the book: Jesus was a skilled storyteller and perceptive teacher who used images from everyday life to stir up interest in his message about the Kin-dom of God. But life in first-century Galilee and Judea was very different from our world today, and many traditional interpretations of Jesus’s stories not only ignore this difference, but also often import anti-Jewish and sexist views. In this wise, entertaining, and educational book, Levine explores Jesus’ most popular parables, revealing their hidden depths, exposing their misinterpretations, and showing how they can still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.
