At Northbrook UMC we seek to encounter God, love others, and serve a world in need. Our missions partnerships bring this vision to light as we serve our community both locally and internationally. We look forward to serving alongside of you.

Upcoming Service Opportunities
September Household Essentials Drive
During the month of September, we want to bless people in our community by collecting and distributing household items that may be harder to come by right now: cleaning products, detergents, toilet paper, diapers, and formula. Plans for this are still being made, so look for updates as we draw closer.
The Drake House
Mrs. Mary's Ice Cream Cranking will look different this year. Plans are being finalized, but we will again need ice cream makers to take part in a drive-through competition.
Guatemala Missions & Love-Serve
Northbrook UMC supports the ministry of our members Craig and Carol Hill in Antigua, Guatemala. Northbrook typically sends mission teams down each year to aid in the Hill’s work in education, clean water, construction of ventilated stoves, and building homes.
