Directions to The Way Forward: Future Possibilities for The United Methodist Church
 In February of 2019, a special called session of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church is considering recommendations around issues of human sexuality and the unity of the church. Rev. Catherine Nance from 1st UMC, Maryville and Rev. Laura Rasor from Broadway UMC are hosting a 90 minute informational session to learn more about how the UMC works, the historical background of the disagreements, and the recommendations that will be considered at General Conference. The session will be offered on a variety of different days and times and at both locations, with the hope that you will take the opportunity to attend one.
Session options:
  • Wednesday, November 28th at 5:00 p.m. at Broadway
  • Sunday, December 2nd at 2:00 p.m. at Broadway
  • Tuesday, December 4th at 10:30 a.m. at 1st UMC
  • Tuesday, December 4th at 7:00 p.m. at Broadway
Catherine and Laura will both be present at each session, and the same material will be addressed at each. You need to attend only one session, and are invited to attend whichever time and place works best for you.
On December 12 and 13, Broadway United Methodist Church will work with Habitat to re-build a small porch and ramp. Currently, we have 4 volunteers who are committed to work; however, we need at least 3 more. Anyone who would like to work a few hours or both days is welcome to join us. This is a busy time of the year for most of us; however, spending some of this time in service is a gift we make to our less fortunate neighbors! Men, women, youth, everyone is welcome! To sign up, please contact Mary Margaret Eckhardt or Cindy Bell.
October 28 was Commitment Sunday
