Residents of Brooks-Howell may be 'retired' but we continue to serve in area ministries such as ABCCM, Howeward Bound, Haywood Street Congregation, Kairos and many others. In addition, residents volunteer many hours for favorite concerns such as accessible health care, animal welfare, earth care and too many others to name. Thousands of hours of service are donated each year.

What makes Brooks-Howell unique? We are a community of deaconesses, home missionaries, missionaries and others who have answered God's call to mission service here and throughout the world.

All of this is made possible by the support of United Methodist Women through their national, regional and local support of Brooks-Howell. Without this teamwork, the retired missionaries, home missionaries, deaconesses, national staff persons and others would not have a safe community from which to live out our motto:

"Called.... Served... Serving Still"

We are thankful to be part of the connection of United Methodist Women. Through the mission giving, cards, prayers and visits from local and national United Methodist Women, we are still able to be a part of this vital missional community.
