The refurbishment of the Northbrook campus buildings will begin on July 8, 2024. There are a number of repairs which will be occurring in this phase, including re-roofing of the Church Buildings A, B, C and D, repairs to Building B and C moisture issues, repair to the portico ceiling and re-painting all exterior areas.

We are excited to follow this project and ask you to take extreme caution as you and your family move around the Construction Zones. Your patience during the project is appreciated! If you have any questions or comments regarding the project, contact Comer Train.

Looking for a way to make this summer memorable? On Sunday, July 21, Northbrook is heading to Trinity Table in downtown Atlanta to serve lunch to around 200 hungry people, most of whom are unhoused. We need 20-25 compassionate volunteers to join us!

We meet at Northbrook at 10:30 am for setup. We caravan to Trinity UMC at 11am. We will set up and serve lunch, and depart around 2:30pm, after cleanup. 

Bring your energy, your heart, and let's make this a day to remember.
