Local Partnerships

Northbrook and Uflourish Church have entered into a formalized church-to-church partnership!

 

Led by Pastor Kurt Owens, Uflourish Church is a multi-ethnic, gospel-centered church community located in Milwaukee.  We are united in mission to make compelling followers of Christ, growing in the knowledge of the Word, growing in the application of the Word, and bearing fruits of the Word so that lives are transformed and the glory of God is revealed. We desire to embody the racial and ecclesial unity that we have with one another in the gospel.

 

This partnership is not intended to be a mere symbolic token of unity, but rather a very real, tangible means of practicing it. We look forward to getting to know each other and involving ourselves in each other’s lives, being exposed to new perspectives and matters of concern, and allowing ourselves to be stretched. We believe the church is the best equipped community for this very thing – with Christ as her Lord, the Spirit as her common gift, and the reconciling gospel as her foundation. 

The Milwaukee Rescue Mission provides shelter, food, education and training to help the homeless, hungry and hurting in Milwaukee, helping them restore their lives and their hope.  Find information, opportunities and needs at milmission.org.

Northbrook's MRM CONNECTION ministry connects volunteers with opportunities to serve at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission, including Joy House (women and children), Safe Harbor (men) and Cross Trainers Academy (students).

Care Net Pregnancy Center of Milwaukee is a Christ-centered ministry that supports the sanctity of human life by offering spiritual, physical, and emotional support to women and their families facing unplanned pregnancies and related issues.  The center provides free services including pregnancy tests, ultrasound, options counseling, education, material support and moms groups.  

 

Last year, Care Net of Milwaukee provided 967 ultrasounds to women making pregnancy decisions. This year they are working to create a second ultrasound room in order to increase their capacity and better serve their clients.  Additionally, they are expanding their programming to provide more emotional support to women suffering from the trauma of a past abortion decision.  

Northbrook is excited to continue its partnership with Care Net Milwaukee by purchasing much needed supplies for these programs. Construction is well underway for the second ultrasound room, which will also provide additional space for Care Net advocates to meet one-on-one with women needing post-abortion counseling and support.  

Northbrook’s partnership is instrumental in this ministry! Are you looking for a way to help directly at the center? Help is needed on weekdays with childcare while moms are attending classes, or with sorting baby clothes.  To learn more, text the center at 414-962-2212.
