Broadway United Methodist is committed to providing opportunities for adults of all ages to walk together for the purpose of growing their faith. Our adult ministry programs bring men and women together as they seek to honor God in their homes, careers, relationships, finances, and more. We want to create a network of support for adults in our community to connect with one another on a regular basis for a specific purpose—to know and experience Jesus in community with others. Through small groups, classes, and monthly gatherings, we connect adults together as they connect with Christ.

Mondays at 7:00 pm.

If you are looking for a small group to grow your faith through lively discussion, you'll find that on Monday nights, right here at Broadway United Methodist Church.  Our Monday night groups engage in studies and conversations that challenge us to be community at its best.

Faithful by Adam Hamilton

Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph

November 20 through December 18

We’re not that different from Joseph. True, we may not be part of a story that will be remembered for all time, but like Joseph, we encounter circumstances that we’d never choose for ourselves. At times, it can be tempting just to walk away, but Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand, faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph and learn to accept and glorify God’s will even when our situation makes it difficult to do so.

On the Mondays between small group studies we take an evening to tackle some of the tougher issues found in today's society. Documentary and Discipleship takes participants into the stories and lives that have made an impact on the issues of this day.  We will view a documentary and talk about the social justice needs of the time and where we as Broadway United Methodist Church can bridge the gap discovered in the film.

We will be providing dates and titles for 2018 as soon as they are selected.

Underdogs and Outsiders by Tom Fuerst

November 15, 29, December 6, 13, & 20

There's something about underdogs that makes us cheer them on.  And stories about outsiders always make a good movie script or book.  We will take a look at the lives of five Biblical women and uncover new dimensions of familiar stories and be reminded to look for God in unanticipated places during this Advent season.

Lazarus Awakening by Joanna Weaver.

November 8 through December 13 (will not meet on November 22)

Imagine Jesus from Mary's point of view - proud of her son, in awe of his gifts and mission, guided by love for him as a person and so much more. In this book, Adam Hamilton begins at the end, with Mary at the crucifixion and resurrection; travels back in time as she witnesses his life and ministry; and ends at the beginning, with the Christ child born in a stable, Mary's beautiful baby. This year experience Advent and Christmas with Mary and some of the women of Broadway United Methodist Church.
