Small Groups and Family Ministries

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 bringt 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.

Monday Evenings

7:00 pm at Barleys Bar in the historic Council Bluffs 100 Block
