The clarion call of the Reformation of the Church in the 16th century was that we find salvation by grace through our faith in Jesus Christ. At Brownback’s United Church of Christ, we are faithful to our Reformed forebears in this belief, as we live out our faith in the 21st century, celebrating 275 years of ministry in 2018. As our mission we see ourselves as God’s people, followers of Jesus Christ, guided by the Holy Spirit. We praise God’s greatness through worship and celebration; build a spiritual family on friendship, caring, and love; teach all to follow the Way of Christ; and serve Christ by offering hope and support to our neighbors in need. We welcome all to join us on our journey of faith.
In Spring/Summer of 2015 we began our Community Garden to provide fresh fruit and vegetables for the area’s hungry. By autumn of 2015 we harvested more than 1,000 pounds of food to the Spring City Food Pantry and the Good Samaritan Shelter for Homeless Men in Phoenixville. Volunteers from our church have also worked with the homeless day shelter at Trinity Reformed UCC in Pottstown, Pa on Saturdays during the winter season. Our mission support includes Bethany Children’s Home, the Good Samaritan Shelters, the Pottstown Cluster of Churches, Samaritan’s Purse, and area food banks.
Brownback’s UCC is small enough to be friendly, yet large enough to provide a beautiful setting for worship, blending together liturgy and instrumental and choral music from our pipe organ, bell choirs, soloists, and Chancel Choir. The sermons are not only “good news” but relate to modern life. Children are an important part of the life of Brownback’s UCC—including our worship, participating in the children’s sermon, then in worship play, a lectionary based age-appropriate discussions and activities. Our Youth Group recently combined with youth from two other UCC churches and meet twice monthly.
Brownback’s United Church of Christ is a warm and welcoming community of faith. We are diverse in age and background, but share a common commitment to follow Christ together as we growth together in word and sacrament, Christian education, fellowship, and service.
