Sixty years ago, before Elmbrook ever existed, five families drove around the Brookfield community in fervent prayer, asking God to start something big. There's no doubt that He answers prayers!
We firmly believe that individual faith is built upon a daily, personal, rubber-hitting-the-road walk with Jesus, centered on prayer. We offer many ways to encourage you on that walk.

LEARN TO PRAY
We regularly offer classes in learning how to pray. Check out "When God's People Pray." Prayer can change lives and circumstances like nothing else can. Join us as we learn the keys that unlock its power, that turn prayer from a mere activity into a vital link with God and all His resources. When God's People Pray, by Jim Cymbala, helps you understand, personalize and apply the transforming power of prayer in your life. Fall class begin Sept. 17 - be sure to check back for location in August.
