Brunswick Church Prayer-to-Go

May 5th, 7 am – 7 pm

Brunswick Church Wants to Pray for You!

On Thursday May 5th, Brunswick Church invites you to adjust your usual morning route and let a “prayer drive thru” empower your day. This “Prayer-to-Go” event will run from 7 am to 7 pm at Brunswick Church on Route 351 in Brunswick. Motorists are invited to stop briefly, receive a hot cup of coffee and allow us to pray for their concerns on the spot. Whether it’s offering God praise for recent blessings or asking for a needed miracle, a friendly face will greet you and offer to pray for a few moments before bidding you a great day in the sure knowledge that you matter to God and to people in our community. No prayer is too small or too big. In fact, no details are needed at all. So, drive right by your usual morning coffee run on May 5th and let your morning — or evening—commute be blessed.

Support for Parents of Children with Disabilities

BRUNSWICK – Do you have a child with various disabilities or other needs? You are cordially invited to participate in a support group from the comfort of your own home! This is an opportunity to share concerns, insights, and resources to help navigate through both rewarding and challenging times. The host is Connie Vooys, a former special education teacher and mother to a special needs child. 

The group meets via zoom on the first and third Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM, and is open to all parents and caregivers without regard to geographic or religious boundaries. If you are interested, please write to and Connie will send you an online link to the group and answer any questions you may have. Sometimes a bit of encouragement makes all the difference!

Cancer Support Group

BRUNSWICK – There are very few of us who have not been affected by cancer, either as a patient, family member, or friend. If you are dealing with the stress of this disease for whatever reason, talking with others in similar circumstances can be very beneficial. 

A warm invitation is extended to attend a Zoom cancer support group, led once a month (the third Monday) by retired pastor Ted Wright, he himself a cancer patient. If you have any questions or would like the zoom link, please contact Ted at 

This is a ministry in conjunction with Brunswick Church at 42 White Church Lane (just off Rt. 351). Our worship services are Sundays at 9:30 AM and all are welcome. Church participation is not required to have cancer support.
