Welcome Luncheon for Jason’s family

Sunday, August 11th

Blessing-Backpacks-web-1280x640.jpg

Blessing of the Backpacks & Teachers

was held on Sunday, August 4th

Please join us after worship on Sunday, 7/7 for a reception honoring Jason Rogers as he begins his ministry at Brookhaven UMC and joins our church family. We will meet in the Hospitality Room.
Welcome to Brookhaven UMC’s new pastor, Jason Rogers. Jason grew up in Central Florida and Augusta, GA. As a member of Nazarene and then Baptist churches, he was active in international missions serving primarily in orphanages in Europe and Asia. He attended Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC, receiving a degree in Philosophy. During this time, Jason left the church for what would be more than 20 years, seeking an expression of the God that he saw at work in people and places around the world. Jason married his college sweetheart, Jennifer, and they moved to Athens, GA. Here, Jennifer taught middle school Spanish, and Jason ran a medical equipment company for more than 15 years growing it from 1 store with 12 employees to 5 stores across Georgia and South Carolina with over a hundred employees. While running this business, Jason also completed his MBA from Duke University. After the sale of that company in 2014, Jason and his family moved to Lakeland, FL, his hometown, to seek a new beginning. Jason began working from home while his wife, Jennifer, began homeschooling their three daughters. They found their way back into the church at First United Methodist of Lakeland and the whole family found ways to get involved- choir, handbells, VBS, teaching Sunday School, attending classes and small group studies, Newcomer Committee, Adult Discipleship and Children’s Council to name a few. Through this time, Jason heard his call to ministry and will be entering Candler School of Theology at Emory University this August in addition to being the pastor of Brookhaven UMC. Jason and his wife, Jennifer, have been married for 22 years and are parents to twin daughters, Hope and Lili, age 13 and Chloe, age 7. They are excited to meet each one of you, and cannot wait to join you in the many ways God is present in Brookhaven!

HAWK 1.JPG

SPIRIT ~ the Brookhaven UMC Hawk

There is a community hawk that has a regular resting place on our new cross atop our new steeple. The hawk appears well-fed and comfortable, gazing thoughtfully over the landscape. Some of us remember him vividly from the “Brookhaven Says Boo” event of last Halloween. He seemed amused by all our antics on that occasion and watched us from late afternoon into the evening. He’s been spotted faithfully. We think that since he claims Brookhaven UMC as a place of reflection and meditation we should give him a name. By popular vote… our hawk has been named “SPIRIT”!

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT BROOKHAVEN

A New Vision, An Enhanced Mission

“Re-Steepling” the Church (Part 1)

Our church has gotten a new steeple! While the old one still served its purpose it was showing some age and wear. The cross it bore had been destroyed by a hurricane. A new fresh steeple was raised on April 3rd to continue to announce our church’s mission as a gathering place and service location for the people of God called Christians. From this corner location on North Druid Hills and Briarwood, the steeple will continue to be a shout of praise as well as a call to repentance and revival. The story of the old steeple has been significant. The story to come will be grand and take the church into new directions. It’s a wonderful metaphor for God doing something new for our lives, our community and our world.

One of the major changes to Brookhaven UMC as a RE-steepled church will be entering into a working relationship with Candler School of Theology. In June, a student pastor will be appointed by the North Georgia Conference to serve the congregation and to live in the parsonage next door to the church. Along with their academic studies, they will have the daily experience of being in ministry to us as an ongoing congregation. The people of Brookhaven UMC will be tasked with the mission of nurturing and shaping the ministry understandings of a new pastor for North Georgia. The incoming pastor will be a student in seminary, but they will also be authorized to conduct all the actions necessary for a minister with Brookhaven UMC. They will preach on Sundays. They will offer counseling and spiritual consultation. They will conduct funerals and officiate at weddings. They will offer the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. In short, they will be Brookhaven’s pastor. In exchange for their service, our church will be asked to love them and to share our lives and our struggles with them. They will bring their energies to already established ministries of our church and listen for the Spirit to suggest new ones. For the pastor to come, they are responding to a call that brings them to Brookhaven, eager, gifted and anxious. Let us receive them with grace and expectation as our church becomes part of their education for ministry.

World Day of Prayer, Friday, March 1, 2019

World Day of Prayer is a worldwide, ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year, and who, in many countries, have a continuing relationship in prayer and service.

It is initiated and carried out by women in more than 170 countries and regions.

- It is symbolized by an annual day of celebration observed on the first Friday of March to which all people are welcome.

- It brings women of different races, cultures and traditions together in fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year.

- Through World Day of Prayer, women affirm that prayer and action are inseparable and have immeasurable influence in the world.

- The motto of World Day of Prayer is “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action.”

Please pray this prayer on Friday, March 1:

Loving God, Lord of heaven and earth, this earth, our home, belongs to you. Give us grace to love it as you do. Give us courage to give ourselves, as you do, for the good of all people for all of your creation. Strengthen us to stand, as you do, with the vulnerable poor. Give us wisdom to know when we have enough, and the voice to say “enough” to all that harms creation and hurts the poorest. This earth, our home, belongs to you. Amen.

A Steeple’s Story

I have towered over the City of Brookhaven well over 50 years – WAY before Brookhaven even thought of becoming a city. From my perch at 1366 N. Druid Hills Road, I have been fortunate to see a world go by.

I’ve seen trees planted and then cut down, streets widened, houses built, houses torn down, grocery stores come and go, street lights installed, a lot of happy weddings and unfortunately, a lot of sad funerals. I’ve seen many people come to town and not so many people leave. I’ve seen my home turn from a 100% Caucasian community into something much more stimulating and diverse. I’ve seen people walk a short distance to my home and some that have come from faraway places. Some of my new friends are from ALL over the world AND from ALL over the United States. There are males, females, gays, lesbians, and transgenders. We’ve got single folks, divorcees, married couples with and without children. We’ve got babies and teenagers. People with walkers, wheelchairs, and the occasional crutches. We’ve pretty much got a little bit of everything and we like it that way. Some folks have been coming here for over 70 years. They were married here, baptized and raised their children and grandchildren here. They’ve also mourned the loss of family members and/or friends and, now, the time has come for all these wonderful people to mourn me.

You see, I am their steeple and I’m about to be replaced. If you’ve seen me lately, you can tell I am worn out. And, when Hurricane Irma took my cross away, we didn’t know if this was an omen or a blessing. Churches all over the country have been struggling and many have closed. We thought that might be the case for this church too. Over the years, I’ve seen our pews filled to capacity, although that’s recently not the case. Sometimes there are only 50 people coming on Sunday morning. Low attendance makes it difficult to financially sustain an old building and pay salaries, but we manage.

We’re on a very busy, active, popular corner and many people use our description when giving directions – “take a left (or right depending on where you’re coming from) at the old white church on the corner.” We have been approached numerous times by developers who wanted us to move so they could tear us down and build some townhomes. It was very tempting. But fortunately, this little landmark corner of Brookhaven has stayed strong and I’m so proud of what so few have recently accomplished.

In addition to our Sunday morning services, did you know that there is an Hispanic church meeting three times per week? There’s also an African American church meeting on Sunday nights (you should hear their music and prayers – very uplifting). On Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights there are recovery meetings and on the second and forth Saturday of every month, there’s a Soulful Saturday service for the recovery folks who enjoy hotdogs and bingo after the service. We have a men’s and women’s clothes closet that is open every Monday night where we distribute hundreds of articles of donated clothing, shoes and personal care kits. We have a food co-op that’s open the 4th Saturday morning of every month. A Women’s Bible Study meets every Wednesday night. A Girl Scout Troop meets in our Children’s Room and we house Dr. Joan Teach of the Community Resource Center where adults, students and families can find information and support regarding their learning differences (i.e., ADHD). One hundred pre-school children attend our award-winning child-development center, which has 30 full-time employees (mostly highly acclaimed teachers who have been there for years). I’m not sure but I think I will miss their silly squealing, laughter, and chattering the most – the children’s that is – not the teachers, although they will be missed too!

Yep, my time has come. I’m moving on to be recycled and turned into something clean and new - kind of like my replacement. I’ll miss this old place, this corner at Briarwood and N. Druid Hills, this town and especially these people who call Brookhaven home. I hope you’ll come by sometime – you’re welcome whenever you want to visit. You won’t be met by someone forcing a Bible into your hand or asking you to join. Instead, you’ll be met with a smile, possibly a welcoming handshake and a few introductions. You’ll get to sit on some old wooden pews that make funny noises (even though everyone sits on long seat cushions) and soak in the beautiful stained-glass windows that have been here almost as long as I have. You can listen to some beautiful music sung by a very small choir, accompanied by an amazing piano and organ player (you should hear those pipes. They shake my core and rock the whole building)! The time will go by fast and then you’ll be on your way – kind of like me. But . . . come back to visit, to participate, or just to silently pray. And, if you decide to stick around, you’ll not only see a world go by, you’ll make a difference in the community, just like I did. Enjoy!

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT BROOKHAVEN
A New Vision, An Enhanced Mission

The Discernment Committee shared the results of their work over the last eight months at a congregational gathering on January 27.   During their many meetings, the over-arching prayer guiding committee discussions has been the desire to understand what God wants to see happen at Brookhaven UMC.   A change in direction is required.  The long-term trends of declining membership and sub-par finances have raised the question of the church’s viability going forward.   While there has been incremental growth to celebrate of late, the critical situation of the church requires something more impactful and immediate if the church is going to continue.  The committee considered a host of possibilities ranging from adoption by a larger church to partnership with other congregations. None of these options proved viable.  Officials from the North Georgia United Methodist Conference were consulted.  Sister churches were visited.  Neighborhood planners were interviewed.   The way forward revealed itself as conversations began to center on the possibility of establishing Brookhaven UMC as a Teaching Parish connected to Candler School of Theology.  Along with our people, our church’s location is our most valuable asset.  With a parsonage next door, Brookhaven offers a wonderful location for ministers in training to begin learning the art of pastoring.  Beginning in July of 2019, Brookhaven will have a student pastor appointed to lead worship, offer the sacraments and assist the congregation in ministering and making new disciples for Jesus Christ.  Beginning in July of 2019, the church will accept an enhanced mission of nurturing and shaping new pastors for the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. 

 

This coming change in pastoral leadership is the FIRST STEP of a three part plan to provide for the ongoing viability of the church.  The SECOND STEP is already underway and will be expanded.  Underutilized space in our building will become available for like minded individuals and groups committed to being part of  the Brookhaven area.   Already two different congregations are making use of our sanctuary during times it is not being used by our congregational community.  The Discernment Committee envisions a robust community center serving needs of the Brookhaven community.  All of this will produce additional revenue streams that will assist with our financial budget.

 

The THIRD STEP of the committee’s plans addresses several areas.  There will be an expanded Assimilation program, headed by Beth Grimes.  This project will actively address the welcoming and follow-up of guests, as well as signage changes for easier access to our building.  Changes to the current style of worship will be considered to make the service more accessible and inviting.

 

The committee has been prayerfully seeking ways to ensure the continuance of Brookhaven’s ministries and outreach.  What is happening is a significant change, but it is a necessary one, and one we believe is blessed by God.   It allows our successful CDC to continue its mission of providing quality child care without interruption.  It allows the congregation to continue to have a place for worship and from which to reach out to the community.  The change  values the wisdom contained in our church and its members by trusting them with the shaping of beginning pastors.  The North Druid Hills Corridor Plan for Brookhaven makes it clear that our church will become even more visible as a part of the neighborhood going forward.  New construction will continue throughout the area.  Brookhaven will continue to be here to proclaim its mission to make disciples for Jesus Christ.  We invite you to join us.

THE PENTECOST TREE  HOLY SPIRIT COME!  Just to the right as you enter the parking lot is an impressive tree that we have dedicated as “The Pentecost Tree.” It is wrapped with a belt of red ribbon and encircled by two red cords with multiple snaps for securing notes. Pentecost is celebrated by the world wide church as the occasion for the coming of the Holy Spirit which brings unity in the midst of diversity, fulfillment out what is incomplete. You are invited to access the box situated next to the tree to leave a prayer note asking for an out pouring of the Spirit upon a concern of your life. The concern may be personal. It may be related to family. It may encompass local, national or international concerns. But it is a concern that needs the attention of the Holy Spirit. We all pray together, “Holy Spirit Come!”
