Melrose Campus

Visit Our Sermon Library

In 1908, Broadway United Methodist Church was planted by State Street UMC on the outskirts of Bowling Green (which at that time was the intersection of Broadway and Highway 31). As the city and church continued to grow, Broadway relocated to its present location in 1959.

The church experienced a time of revitalization and rapid growth in the late 1990’s as it began to emphasize ministries to children and families, engaging worship experiences, and serving beyond the walls of the church in the community at large.

Meet Our Pastor: Adam Shourds

I am privileged to serve as Broadway’s lead pastor and have been on staff since 2007. I am an ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church and attended Kentucky Wesleyan College (B.A. in Religion/Philosophy and Modern Languages) and have my Master of Divinity from Louisville Seminary. I am married to Jennie and we have three children: Luke, Isaac, and Sarah Grace.

In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, running, and doing pretty much anything outside.

What’s the difference between the service options?

The main difference between our services is the music and location. All services hear the same sermon message each Sunday which the individual pastor’s flair added to it. The more “traditional” service in the Sanctuary at Melrose will include hymns and a choir at 11am. Our 8:15am service has communion every Sunday. The more “contemporary” service in the MAC features a live band each Sunday.
