Brown Food Pantry Volunteers Wanted!!
If you would like to assist with Brown Food pantry, we have several positions open for the new year. We need folks for our Set-up Team on Friday afternoons. We need greeters, baggers and prayer partners for Saturday mornings. Volunteers range in age from elementary schoolers to…well, we won’t divulge those higher numbers! Volunteers are scheduled to work only once every two months, so your time commitment is minimal. Please consider being a part of this vital ministry! Contact Ruthie Barton ( ).

The more the merrier!!! It costs nothing and helps minister to
many in our community who are struggling to make ends meet.
With the uncertainty of January weather, this month's Odyssey will be a lunch trip to Becky's famous Grocery and Grill on Thursday, January 25. We will meet at the church at 11:00 am and take the church bus. You will need a dollar for gas and cash for your lunch as Becky doesn't take charge or ATM cards. Please fill out the form in the pew pad or make a reservation with the church office, and save room for Becky's homemade desserts!
Broadway UMC Inclement Weather Policy

If Maryville City Schools are CLOSED for inclement weather conditions, all activities for that day are cancelled and the church office is closed. If there are exceptions (such as rehearsals and individual meetings), participants will be notified.

In the event of snow and/or icy road conditions on Sundays, or on days of scheduled church activities, first and foremost, it is our desire to have each of you to be safe. If you experience a problem getting out, or need assistance in anyway, please do not hesitate to contact the church office.

For the most part in the event of inclement weather, Pastor Laura is committed to making every effort to get to the church and to have it open for worship. That being said, if it becomes necessary to CANCEL any services:
  1. Check the "Homepage" of the church website:
  2. An email will be sent to all known email addresses of record.
  3. Additional notices will appear on the church Facebook page.
