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

Current opportunities (email Harry Spalding with questions):

Agape House‘s prayers for a boys home have been answered. They were able to purchase an older church building and have obtained the permits necessary to move forward.

They will have work days on Saturdays from 8am-12:30pm throughout the month of September. There is also a need for food pantry and donations. For a list of needed items, to volunteer or for any questions, contact Harry. Agape House is hosting a Boys Home Open House on September 30 from 1-3pm. All are welcome!

Samaritan’s Purse has deployed staff and a disaster relief unit to Sauk County in response to widespread flooding. The rising waters of the Baraboo River have already damaged hundreds of houses. Volunteers will primarily focus on mud-outs and are welcome to serve for the day. Orientation will begin at the host church, Walnut Hill Bible Church (1900 East Street, Baraboo, WI 53913), at 7:30am or 12:30pm.

The City on a Hill Monthly Neighborhood Health Outreach provides holistic services to meet the medical, nutritional, social, emotional and spiritual needs of uninsured, medically underserved, and homeless residents of the central city.

Agape House

To never turn away a child is the foundation on which Agape House is based, and a promise we make to those who seek our help. Through spiritual, emotional, psychological, and physiological programs for teen girls and young adult women, as well as counseling for families and the greater community, we have welcomed girls from all walks of life who are hurting and seek ways to heal. At Agape House our team of trained professionals has witnessed girls grow academically, graduate from high school, advance to college, become active in missions, and grow into independent adults who lead healthy, productive lives. Our Women’s Ministries have adopted Agape House and have various events with them as well as donations.

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

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.

Mukwonago Schools

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.
