UMW's Annual Day of Prayer & Self-Denial - Saturday, February 13th: The Broadway United Methodist Women will hold their annual Day of Prayer & Self-Denial on Saturday, February 13th, at 9:30 a.m. in the Church Parlor. The program will be followed by a light lunch and will conclude about 12:30 p.m. The objective of the day will be to help us know the impact of our giving. We will hear how the offerings of this day are used and about some of our Indiana missions we help support. Let your Self-Denial be in some of the “don’t really need” items you might want to purchase this week so that our offering is generous and helpful to these missions. Come, and bring a friend!

Pub Theology - Beginning Tuesday, February 16th: During the season of Lent, the pastors of Broadway invite you to join with others for a conversation on faith at Liberty Street (a bar, located at 653 Massachusetts Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46204). The group will gather each Tuesday during Lent, beginning February 16th, from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Jesus spent much of his time in places such as this with whoever was around. We invite you to join us in honest, open conversation about God as we make our way toward Holy Week and Easter. We’ll talk with one another about God, the Bible, the world, and our lives. All are welcome, so please join us...every Tuesday or any Tuesday!

Church Luncheon & Planned Giving Seminar - Sunday, February 21st: You are cordially invited to attend a Planned Giving Seminar held on Sunday, February 21st, in the Community Room.

Join us immediately following the 10:45 a.m. worship service for a church-wide luncheon and plan to stay for the seminar, which begins once the luncheon concludes. Please RSVP to Jack Brozzo and Peggy Pennington at (317) 924-4207 so we can best prepare. Everyone is welcome to attend both or either of the events that day. See you then!
