Sunday Worship at Broadway

Most people new to church find that attending worship is the best way to discover Broadway.  We offer two opportunities to worship on Sunday mornings, 8:30 am and 10:30 am.  The message may be the same, but each service has its own style.  At both services you will find a connection with God and those attending that is real, relational and relevant.

8:30 am - CORNERSTONE

Broadway's CORNERSTONE worship is grounded in what is considered to be traditional style of worship - responses, hymn singing, organ, bells, choir - in a casual, friendly setting.

We love to see families worship together, but for those who prefer, a fully staffed nursery is available for infants and toddlers.

10:30 am - PROCLAIM

Let the praises ring at PROCLAIM worship service. This service is upbeat and contemporary with music and singing led by Broadway's Praise Band.

Sunday School for children in grades PreK-5 is held during this service.  Start in the Sanctuary for some opening singing.  After the Children's Time with the Pastors, those who wish may follow the escort to their classroom.  The nursery is also available for infants and toddlers.

September 3 - October 15

October 22-November 19

But those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty.  The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.

John 4:14 (NRSV)

Many of our faith stories are centered in or around water. Come to the waters and discover a faith that gives life, second chances, a sense of self and new community.  Our stories do all that.

As a part of this series, we will celebrate a couple of special Sundays.  On November 5th we will remember those who came before us, living their faith for us all to see.  And on November 19th, the Sunday before Thanksgiving, we will remember all God has blessed us with.

Advent

Advent is the season of expectation and anticipation leading us to the celebration of the birth of Jesus.  During this season of waiting, join Broadway as we worship with the sights and sounds of Union Station.
