Tornado Relief: As communities in Oklahoma, Texas and other U.S. states reel from the devastation of tornadoes, remember that The United Methodist Church has a system in place for responding. At this time, the most important ways that concerned individuals can help is through prayer and financial assistance. You can support UMCOR US Disaster Response, Advance #901670, with your online gift. 100% of your donation will go to those affected by devastating tornadoes. You can also make an immediate $10 donation, text the word RESPONSE to 80888.
LET THE GAMES BEGIN: On Pentecost Sunday the pastors of Broadway invited the congregation to play a game. The object of the game is to celebrate the gift of the Spirit that is alive in all people. And to get other people to "like" your celebration. You celebrate someone by posting their photo on our facebook page along with a few words about what you value in that person. At the end of every month, the person who has received the most "likes" for their posting(s) will receive a prize to be announced in worship on the first Sunday of the following month. At the end of the summer (early September) the grand prize winner will receive a very special prize that Rev. Rachel will bring back from her Sabbatical.

Commercial Wheelchair Lift: Plans are underway to install a commercial wheelchair lift at the steps in front of the Parlor kitchen. Though challenges exist throughout the building, this area, specifically, has presented an unsafe passage for many. An initiative has been taken to raise funds for it’s installment, so please contact Joanne Solomon or David Wines for opportunities to be a part of this effort!
The Property Committee is also involved in the fund raising effort by recruiting participants for the “Energizing Indiana” home energy assessments. The assessment is open to ALL Indiana counties, so we hope to extend our reach to all families and friends of Broadway to participate in this fund raising opportunity. For every assessment completed for a Broadway household, the church will receive $25 for the “accessibility fund,” which will go toward installing the wheelchair lift. Flyers are available in the church office, along with a sign-up sheet, if you would like more information or to begin scheduling your assessment.
