Local Outreach

At Brooklife we are passionate about serving our community and reaching out to those in need. Whether it’s helping out in our schools, serving the poor, or raking someone’s leaves, we want to release an unprecedented amount of resources into our community to show people a tangible expression of God’s love.

Brooklife Church is building relationships with several local organizations in Mukwonago and in the Waukesha and Milwaukee areas. We hope to continue building these relationships through serving as we seek to live as high-impact followers of Christ.

The Mukwonago Food Pantry’s mission is to provide food and support to individuals and their families and to facilitate their development.

They maintain that all individuals and families should have adequate food for their needs and that no one in the communities they serve should be allowed to sacrifice nutrition regardless of their circumstances.

The food pantry is a resource providing direct on-site programs that focus on helping recipients to overcome the obstacles that led them to seek help. Services and resources offered by other agencies that will aid our clients are offered on an as needed basis.

Samaritan's Purse

samaritan purse

When disaster strikes and after the initial emergency response Samaritan’s Purse staff selects some of those in the most desperate circumstances to have their homes refurbished or a new one built. Samaritan’s Purse functions through volunteers like you and I to help put families and their home back together. Trips are typically one week and are structured so that people of all skill levels are needed. These short term missions are a blessing to the families served and the volunteers that go.

Special Friends

SpecialFriends web

People of all ages with disabilities are invited to come and enjoy some fun at the Special Friends Small Group and Special Friends Events! Many people with disabilities are isolated and do not have many opportunities to socialize or make new friends. The Special Friends House Group is an opportunity for you and your loved one to expand your circle of friends and meet others in the community while participating in a caring environment. We have music, socialization and connection time, crafts, movies and laughter for all who care to join us. As “caregiver”, you can drop you off and have 2 hours of respite time, or you are welcome to stay and connect with the other caregivers. Our House Group is staffed with trained volunteers that have an interest and passion to convey friendship, guidance and love to this ministry.

Mukwonago Schools

Mukwonago Logo

When Brooklife began, it started in a Mukwonago school. We now have our beautiful building, but our hearts will always be tied to the schools of this community. Our children spend much of their lives in school being taught and developed into young adults by dedicated teachers and administrators. As a church, we want to say thank you and come along side of them to serve in a capacity that expresses our love of Christ in ways that are mutually beneficial to all. One of our core values is to release resources into the community with our schools being an integral part.
