Israel's Mission: Becoming a Kingdom of Priests in a Prodigal World
Mark Rector, Interim Youth Ministry
We are grateful to Mark Rector for expanding his ministry at Brookwood to include the youth. Mark has officially taken over Youth Ministry while we search for a new Youth Minister.

Mark is seen here with his son, Joshua, who was born in December.
If you're driving down Overton Road around 5 pm on February 27th, you may hear the rumblings of a celebration coming from the vicinity of the Fellowship Hall. If you should stop to check it out, you'll find Meal and a Deal 2019, Blues & BBQ in full swing!

Meal and a Deal is more than an annual fundraiser, more than a good meal, more than a night with your friends and great "shopping." Meal and a Deal is a gathering of teachers and mentors, encouragers and servants who invite our students to join them as missionaries in a world so in need of the Good News and a helping hand.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for Wednesday, February 27, at 5 pm in the Fellowship Hall for MAAD 2019. We'll have a special dinner, three auctions, an auctioneer with a biting wit, and a room full of happy people. All funds benefit Youth Missions to New Orleans and Cape Town, South Africa during the summer of 2019. If you've never attended a MAAD before, what are you waiting for??? Mark your calendars and we'll see you on the 27th. You won't be disappointed. Beginning this week, take a chance on a YETI Hopper Flip 18 Cooler for a donation of $5.

PINE STRAW - Pine straw will be ready for pick up this weekend.
Connect Worship with True Vine
Sunday, February 24, 6 pm, BBC
In an effort to connect spiritually with our sister church, True Vine, we are beginning a series of monthly worship experiences on Sunday nights in our chapel. We are calling this experience Connect Worship. We hope to create a space for families and members of Brookwood and True Vine to connect with each other and our Lord Jesus through worship and prayer. These worship experiences will be somewhat freeform in structure allowing room for participation by all in an open atmosphere of friendship, encouragement, leadership and prayer. In each gathering, we will celebrate communion together, which is an ultimate connection between heaven and earth. We will spur one another to share the gospel and pray for opportunities to connect with those outside the church family. Currently, we have the Sundays of February 24 th , March 31 st , and April 28 th planned for Connect Worship. Don’t you want to be a part of this profound movement to bring the church together? We hope so.
