You may have noticed the great work being done at Broadway thanks to our recent Capital Campaign. We also want to take the time to spruce up our space so we can be more welcoming and be good stewards of what we have. Beginning May 6, there will be suggestion boxes located around the church. If you see a small project that could be done to help make our space a little brighter, please fill out a card and leave it in the box.

In 1995, Thomas Cahill began a series he called The Hinges of History. Perhaps the two best known are How the Irish Saved Civilization and The Gifts of the Jews. In his introduction to the series, he wrote:
We normally think of history as one catastrophe after another… but history is also the narratives of grace, the recounting of those blessed and inexplicable moments when someone did something for someone else, saved a life, bestowed a gift, gave something beyond what was required by circumstance.
In January, the elementary children hosted friends from Buechel Park Baptist Church for a sleepover in the Family Life Center. The students played games together, worked on crafts, and had an evening devotion before bedtime and a movie. The children have already talked about how excited they are to do this again next year, and invite other churches!

In 2016, the church borrowed $60,000 on a line of credit to make up for a short-fall in the budget for that year. There were no funds included in the current year’s budget to pay down the debt, and nothing has been included in the budget for 2018 toward repayment. Our interest payment is $200 per month.
Join our Women on Mission for their Annual Christmas Meditation on Tuesday, December 19, at 11 a.m., in Gheen’s Chapel. This sacred time is a way to experience a peaceful and, for many, much needed break during the holiday season.
In the six churches where I served as an Intentional Interim (meaning a self-study was involved), one consistent response was always voiced at the conclusion of the workshops: “We really needed to do this. I really feel I know people in a way I never did before.”
