Volunteer Opportunity - Monumental Marathon: Looking for a way to be a part of the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon (IMM), but don't think you're quite up for the 26.2 miles? If so, you're just the person we're looking for! Broadway will host a water station once again this year for the IMM, and we need 50 volunteers to make the station a great success. As in years past, the Broadway water station marks the split between the half- and full-marathon, which means lots of foot traffic....and lots of fun! Volunteers should plan to arrive no later than 7:20 a.m., and our station should wrap up at 10:20 a.m. We'll have free coffee and donuts, and all volunteers who sign up in advance will receive a long-sleeve t-shirt that morning. For more information and sign up, please contact Stephie Isbell

Mark your calendar for this fantastic event, complete with a delightful Asian meal and wonderful entertainment. Tickets are available for $20/person and may be purchased from Joanne Solomon or Sungboon Baik. Don’t forget to invite your friends!

“I Am MORE than You SEE” purple t-shirts are back! Don’t miss out on this second chance to own one today. You can purchase your t-shirt in the church office for $6.00. Adult sizes medium, large and X-large are currently available.

Celebration Service: Please join us at 9:30 a.m. in the Community Room.
