Brookside Church worships together every Sunday at 10AM. The sermon and scripture reading, along with the opening prayer and children’s story are now available for you to hear weekly. Most of the sermons are delivered by our pastor, the Reverend Dr. Dawn C. Berry, unless otherwise indicated.

You are always invited to join us for worship and enjoy the music of Brookside Congregational Church in person!

We are planning to launch a streaming Podcast in the near future. In the meantime you may download/listen to the following MP3 file clips.
