Sermon: Be Thou Our Vision
Text: Habakkuk 2:2-3
"Write the vision; make it plain..." (Habbakuk 2:2)

Not many name their children after the prophet Habakkuk. It's probably more the name itself than anything to do with the prophet himself. Habakkuk is a people's prophet after all. So many prophets stand above, casting aggressive judgment and expectations on behalf of God. Not Habakkuk. He stands alongside of us and asks God to make clearer sense. Habakkuk waits and listens which is the first work of any visioning process. What happens next? God answers: "Write this. Write it out in big block letters so it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what's coming." We've waited. We've listened. Are we ready for what's coming?    
 A new year brings a new vision for our community! After a year-long process of listening, dialogue, prayer, and discernment we are invited out into that "broad place" of which the Psalmist sings to imagine new ways of embodying love in a complex world. The vision is rich and the values run deep. The possibilities for living into this vision are (as they were for Abraham and Sarah) as numerous as the stars in the sky!  

Thus, we offer all Broadway members the opportunity to unpack this new vision through a six-week formation series entitled, Where Love Leads. This series will create some sacred space to study, share, and explore the new vision through the lens of our faith. Drawing on the scriptures and our own Disciples' tradition, participants will reflect on how this renewed vision might start to guide our personal and collective journey of faith. 

Sessions will be conducted via ZOOM and run about one hour in length. We will begin with a short presentation followed by some small group breakout discussions and conclude with large-group processing and prayer. Sessions are designed to complement the sermon series, and are offered at three different times each week (Sundays at 1p.m., Wednesdays at 1p.m., Wednesdays at 7p.m.)

Click here to register for the time that works for you. You can also call or email John to register at 573.445.5312 x222 or delaporte@broadwaychristian.net.

Middle and High Schoolers are encouraged to participate in our accompanying series, Reimagine, designed for youth to explore the new vision and values in a relevant, impactful way. 
A New Series for All Middle and High School Youth. 

Join us at 7:00p.m. on Sunday nights via ZOOM.

What are you reimagining for your life in the year ahead?  What is Broadway reimagining?  Come and find out!

Zoom  In @ Noon with Mark, Terry & John
Join your pastors and friends on the Zoom @ Noon. The group meets for a bit less than an hour, and you never know whose face you'll see or voice you'll hear - maybe a Broadway member who has moved or a member who you haven't seen since outdoor worship. Pastor Mark, Pastor Terry and John will be available over the noon hour for conversation and reflection - the casual and important moments that we miss on Sunday morning!  Just click on the image and join the conversation.
Keeping You Informed...
It's Not to Late to Join In!
Just a reminder to text "BroadwayCC" to 94000 to receive your unique Star Word for 2021! Remember to please input everyone's name in your household that would like their own Star Word.

Broadway Serves Room at the Inn in January 
Broadway Christian Church has a long history of serving as shelter for Room at the Inn CoMo during the winter season but due to COVID-19 they are being housed at one location all winter.

Broadway is still finding a way to support RATI, so what we need is COOKS IN THE KITCHEN for the weeks of January 17-23 and January 24-30.

Sign up here for a two hour shift (3:00pm-5:00pm) to prepare PB&J and deli sandwiches here at BCC. You may sign up individually or as a
family. We will mask up and social distance by splitting the group between the kitchen and the fellowship hall. We need four people each day and all supplies
will be provided. In addition, if you prefer to prepare a crockpot meal at home to drop at the church there are two sign up slots each day for that as well.

Questions? Contact Marilyn McCreary at 573.268.4876.
You Outdid Yourselves Broadway!
During Kettle Bell season, we rang, sang, played instruments and greeted HyVee shoppers for 60 hours. We raised $3,205.92 or $53.43/hr, which is more than in years past! Thank you for your gift of time ringing so others can be sheltered and fed.

The Beautiful Rainbow of Gender Expression
You're on the journey of parenthood, and you want to raise your child to see the beautiful rainbow of gender expression and not get stuck in the pink or blue mindset. How do you actively raise children who see beyond the binary?

Here are 3 simple steps:
1) Read books about gender expansive people
2) Have open conversations about how clothes don't have gender
3) Chat more in depth with local activist and educator Mason Aid!
