We need all of Broad Street to Rise Up on October 19th! On this day we will be gathered in Triplett Hall to pack 20,000 meals for people around the world who are in need of food. Hunger is a real problem that majority of our world lives with and we can make a DIFFERENCE on October 19th. All ages and stages are invited to this one time event. What an opportunity for us to get our entire church together to make a global impact! It will take place between 2:00 and 4:00 pm. Please go and register at the following link inside this event.
This Sunday, all four of our services will gather together in the sanctuary for worship. So this Sunday, September 1, come to Sunday School at 9:30am as usual. Come at 10:45am for worship. Come to fellowship with your brothers and sisters in Christ. Come to praise God through the music. Come to hear a Biblical message shared by Rev. Jerry Everley. Come to experience the presence of Jesus in the bread and the cup. But most of all, come expecting the Holy Spirit to do a miraculous thing among us. It will be a day of celebration that you don't want to miss.

Our first practice will be Wednesday night, August 28th from 6:15-7:15 in our new location, the children's choir room...(however, for that hour, it is the YOUTH choir room! J) But a few days before that first rehearsal, there will be a swim party at the Murphy's house on Sunday evening, August 25th from 5-7 pm to welcome everyone-both old and new members-to our new year!
Sunday, August 18, will be the second Sunday in our Back-to-School series, "Going the Distance." The scripture will be James 1:21-22. Rev.
