The Brook Church – Why I Attend

I live in Alabama, so there is no shortage of churches in the area.  There seems to be a church on every corner.

A little over a year ago, I started attending The Brook Church in Madison, Alabama.  I keep going back for several reasons.

I have been able to make friends there.  I enjoy the services and being involved with the children’s ministry.  I love attending the missional community groups that the church sponsors.

Those things are great, but they are not the main reasons I think The Brook is the best church for me.

I continue to learn new things when I attend church on Sunday and during missional community group meetings.  I also feel inspired to be a better person.  I am constantly growing and trying to improve myself.  I want to be willing to forgive others and be willing to apologize when I have done wrong.  I want to be honest and have moral integrity.  I want others to see me as someone with good character traits.

I still have areas of my life that need improvement and I make a lot of mistakes.  However, I am always trying and The Brook is helping me to achieve my goal of being a better person and a better Christian.

  1. Dear Lynn Thaler those all sounds like good reasons. I am a member a local church called Park Avenue church which I have been a member since a little before 1996. It sounds good that your learning new things because spiritual growth is essential like good diet. I enjoyed your post.

  2. Sounds like you have found the right church for you. I changed churches about 9 years ago, for a variety of reasons, and it was a hard process. I visited several and even attended church at one and Sunday School at another for a while. I eventually settled on the one I go to now and know it is where I belong.

  3. Isn’t it nice to feel at home at church? It’s so nice to attend, feel welcome and have friends there. It’s a wonderful feeling to be a part of something bigger than ourselves and to serve in the children’s ministry, that’s one of my favorite parts, too! It sounds like a lovely church community. 💛
