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.

Adult small groups are never closed.  We invite you to join us at any time.  Nursery is available on Wednesday evenings and at other groups as requested.

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.

The Gospel of John

April 16, 23, 30

May 7 & 14

The Gospel of John is the most deeply spiritual of the four gospels. This writing is filled with rich images and profound truths, but John notes that his aim in writing the gospel is that readers will not only believe in Jesus Christ, but that they “may have life in his name.”  

You’ll follow the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus through the Gospel of John and understand the context of some of the best-known verses in the New Testament. 

Wednesday Evenings at 6:30 pm

Wednesdays at Broadway offer opportunities for the everyone.  Start your evening with a community meal served in the Fellowship Hall starting at 5:45 pm.  The adult small group meets at 6:30 pm in the DeLong Lounge.

For those with children, our nursery is available for infants and toddlers.  We also run our Wednesday Faith in Motion for Pre-K throu 5th graders and our Student Life Ministry for youth in grades 6-12 at the same time as Wednesdays Small Group.

Perfectly Imperfect

April 4, 11, 18, 25

May 2, 9 & 16

How can someone be perfectly imperfect? Isn’t that a contradiction?

Perfectly Imperfect is about people whose true-to-life stories are found in the Old Testament. They are like us in many ways–confused, tempted, and often afraid. They are flawed, real people, but then God enters their lives and everything changes.

Through the examples of Abraham, Moses, Rahab, and many others, we learn how God works with us. We discover something about the way God transforms us from what we are into what we can be. In these sometimes tragic and broken lives, we get a glimpse of how God renews us and remakes us into people who are perfectly imperfect.

Broken and Blessed

February 14, 21, 28

March 7, 14, & 21

With more and more ways to communicate in a culture that encourages sharing the details of our lives, there exists greater and greater opportunity for disagreement. Our differences seem more pronounced. Our words sound more divisive. Even as Christians, we struggle to get along. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians living in Corinth about this very thing, encouraging them to not ridicule one another but to work together to show the love of Christ.

We will explore Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians and discover how to live love even when you disagree

Broadway seniors meet monthly to enjoy a meal and a program as well as some time of fellowship.  But really, all are welcome.
