Community Meal – Every Month on the LAST Saturday Brookdale offers a FREE meal to everyone in the community! Yes – free! Yes – for everyone!

You’re missing out on scrumptious food prepared by Brookdale’s awesome chefs – served right to your table – and the menu changes every month. But even more, you’re missing out on great camaraderie – a time to catch up with your friends and maybe make some new ones. You say “I knew all of that”! Well then, don’t keep it a secret – there’s always more than enough to go around, so … Why not plan to join us for our Thanksgiving feast on November 30? … and bring a friend!

Blue Christmas Service – Thursday December 12, 7:30 PM – Do you find the holidays painful, the constant joyful refrains reminding you of what you have lost or are missing? Sometimes we need space and time to acknowledge our sadness; we need to know that we are not alone. Our Blue Christmas Service provides a time and space to grieve, but also a time to rejoice with anticipation of the coming birth of the Savior who understands and cares. Light refreshments will be served after the service for fellowship and sharing.
Christmas Carol & Pasta Sing – Saturday, December 12, 4:00 – 6:00 PM – Pasta and Christmas? Why not? So many ways to celebrate and so few days to do it all! So … for the 2nd year running we have decided to combine singing AND eating! Who knows – maybe we’ve got a tradition starting here! Why don’t you come join us! Won’t cost you anything cause it’s FREE !! (Of course, If you want to leave a donation we won’t complain …)
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, Tuesday, December 24, 7:30 PM
Some noteworthy memorable events in the not too distant past …
HarvestFest an October festival in downtown Bloomfield – A family celebration with all the fun that Fall has to offer including a mile‑long outdoor marketplace. Harvest Fest is a day filled with amusements, games and children activities. We’ve been there, 4 years running, distributing scriptures, devotional materials, and praying with some folks who had special needs.
Praying the Labyrinth – This past March, for the 2nd time we “Walked the Labyrinth in Lent”. The Labyrinth is a circle with a single path to and from the center. Walking the labyrinth is a way of praying with the body that invites the divine presence of God into an active conversation with the heart and soul. It has been used as a walking meditation to assist us in finding inner peace, managing stress, and healing us physically, emotionally, and spiritually for centuries. The Labyrinth invites us to quiet the mind, calm the body, and stir the spirit on a journey of presence and deep transformation as we feel surrounded by God’s love and mercy.
A Taste of the Caribbean, a time of fun, food and fellowship Featuring Steel Drum Artist: Sterling “Sugar” Sample!
Asian Fusion Event – On a Saturday this past June on the back lawn we offered a wide variety of Asian Food – Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Korean – and entertainment by Chinese Lion Dancers and Japanese Biwanco Drummers.
Solar Seminars Several times over the last couple of years we have opened our doors to Geoscape Solar of Livingston NJ for a seminar about “going solar”. At each of these seminars several folks from the surrounding community took advantage of the event to learn how solar works and how to convert to solar with no money out of pocket. We see promoting solar as good stewardship and plan to continue periodically hosting educational seminars in the future. Watch here or our Facebook page for information.
The community is welcome at all of our events.
