Faithful Servant of Jesus Christ Award

For 20 years, the United Methodist Men and now the United Methodist Women have recognized an individual for the “Faithful Servant of Jesus Christ Award.” We want to encourage the entire congregation to have a voice in selecting this special honor.
We will select the “Faithful Servant” in a two-step process. First, a round of nominations, then you will have an opportunity to vote on the top four nominees. Nominations must be turned in by April 21 for consideration.
Nominations should be individuals who faithfully serve others without thoughts of personal benefit or glory.

  • Only one nomination per congregant is allowed. 
  • Past recipients and church staff are ineligible.
  • Nominees should be of highest moral standing and have lived his/her life attempting to exemplify the traits of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

You can find the list of the past recipients on the plaque in the narthex near the balcony stairs, on the nomination form, or in the church newsletter.
Since we haven’t been able to gather together as congregation in the past year, you might want to scroll through the church directory to think about potential nominees. You might also think about those individuals who have continued working faithfully through the past year.

There are several ways to turn in a nomination. You will find nomination forms in the narthex, which you can fill in and place in the offering plate. You can also click the button below or you can email the church office.

Postal Packages Auction in Willow, Alaska
Broadway UMC has sent 6 packages (at least one is from Knit Wits) to Willow, AK, for their Postal Package Auction. While the Auction will be postponed until later this spring or possibly in the fall due to the Pandemic, it will continue, and Willow is excited to get our packages again this year.

Because the Auction will be held later than Palm Sunday this year, you as an individual, family, or class, still have ample opportunity to send a Priority mail package for the Auction. Other ways you can help the Willow church are:

  • Gather soap and shampoo, chapstick, toothbrushes, reusable shopping bags, and school supplies. Send them in Priority boxes.

  • Gift cards of $50 for elementary teachers to buy supplies for their students

  • Monetary gifts through the Advance

Remember, the Willow Community has been through a devastating forest fire that burned over 50 homes, a serious earthquake, and the Pandemic in recent years. They appreciate all the prayers and help we can give.

The Family Promise Resurrection Run is virtual this year- You can register March 1-Apr 30, so there's still plenty of time if anyone would like to participate!
