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 Milwaukee areas. We hope to continue building these relationships through serving as we seek to become a place for everyone in our community.
