Great turn out for our Day In program. Potluck lunch at 12:00 was followed by an organ recital featuring Karen Harville. Bob Hayes joined in on a duet as well.
The final task in the Bell Project has been completed. Mark Sheridan installed the new plaque on the new bell yesterday.

Big thanks to all who served on this project!

Our next hike is scheduled for Saturday, July 20. Meet at the church at 9:30 a.m. Our plan is to hike the Middle Prong Trail in the Smokies. This will be an out and back hike so you can go for as long or as short as you wish. The trail is relatively easy for a Smokies trail. Pack a lunch and be sure to have plenty of water. Broadway Hikers is open to anyone. Sign up through the church office so that we can let you know of any schedule adjustments.
July Friday Night Lights Mark your calendars for the next Friday Night Lights downtown event on Friday, July 26th from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. The theme is “Back to School” Volunteers are needed to assist with hospitality and to help with the children’s crafts. If you are interested in helping out, please contact the church office or Susan Daffron at for more information.
We will be joining Maryville 1st and several other United Methodist Church youth again on July 28th. This time we will meet for a Youth Pool Party @ John Sevier Pool from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
Day Out on Tuesday, August 13 is going to be special indeed! We are going to Crossville to see the Cumberland County Playhouse production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” featuring the music of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. The play is one of the most enduring musicals of all time. It is the biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colors. And, before the play we will have lunch at Cumberland Mountain State Park restaurant. The cost for the day is $45.00 per person and covers the play, lunch and gratuity, and gas for the bus. The deadline for reservations is Sunday, August 4 and must be paid in advance. We have already bought and reserved a block of tickets and any unused tickets must be returned by August 5. We will leave the church at 10:00 a.m. and return at approximately 7:00 p.m. (We will have time for a short stop to get a snack after the play) 
The play is rated G and is appropriate for all ages, so all are welcome!
Scholarships are available, please contact Tami in the office. 
Aug. 18: Bicentennial Church and College Community Worship
A Faith Community Fair will be held at 6 p.m., which will give MC students the opportunity to meet members of local churches and faith communities. All are welcome to attend the community worship service, led by Rev. Dr. Anne McKee, at 7 p.m. at the Clayton Center. In addition to welcoming first-year students, this year’s worship service will celebrate our area’s faith communities and our history of shared mission and service. And shared music will be a highlight! If a quartet or several members of your church choir would like to participate in a community choir for the service, please contact Alan Eleazer.  

Anyone who would like to contribute breakfast and protein bars or homemade cookies to be handed out to students during the Fair please leave them in the church kitchen by 4:30 pm on August 18. Cookies should be bagged in ziplock baggies, 3 per bag and marked as to what type they are and if the contain nuts. If you have questions please contact Susan Daffron.
We have the opportunity to help local school children who experience food insecurity over the summer. Sadly, the need is great in our area. Once school ends, some children face hunger when the free or reduced price lunch programs also end. Second Harvest and First UMC are partnering to furnish food items to selected families this summer. Broadway is supporting this initiative by providing volunteers to help deliver the food to 10 families (representing 26 children) from the Porter School community.
