GROWTH GROUP SIGN UPS ARE NOW OPEN!
Reaching Forward (re)Group
Reaching forward. The power of a positive direction…the excitement that comes from having God-inspired goals…the determination arising from a decision to let nothing stop us from Christ’s mission.
How will we live out that mission in 2022 and beyond? Well, we need to hear from you! This fall new and existing small groups are invited to participate in a special 4-week experience during which we will dream about our church’s future together. We will discuss the meaning and application of our vision statement, hear from community leaders about Bowling Green’s most pressing needs, learn more about who we are as a church community, and discuss how to move forward into what God has for Broadway’s future. A meal will be served starting at 5:15 pm each week. Childcare will be available.
Led By Pastor Adam and Pastor Laura

The Possibilities of Me
For much of my life I suffered under the lie that God has some sort of blue-print master plan. It was up to me to figure it out so I could then comply. Sign up requirements were fairly cut and dried; recite a preset prayer, agree to a prescribed set of beliefs, stay in step with my local religion’s etiquette and protocol. And of course, commit to pursue this with all my might.
These days I believe God’s “master plan” is to love each person he creates.
Over the years as we’ve explored hope and healing in Pathway here at Broadway, we’ve become increasingly fascinated by what happens when we let God love us. As we’ve listened to each other’s God-stories it has become abundantly clear that over and over, his love works magic in us.
Multiple days, times, and meeting locations available
Knit2Pray2 (K2P2) gathers knitters, crocheters, and other makers to craft prayer shawls that will be gifted to congregants in need of a tangible reminder of God’s loving kindness. For those who like to craft (or who like to hang out with those who do); all people of all skill levels are welcome; a light snack will be provided. In loving memory of our friend Nancy Ramey. ç
Meets the fourth Sunday of the month at 2pm in the Cup of Hope
Chronic Health Issues Support Group
A Chronic Health Issues Support Group is forming for people with ongoing health issues and those who love them. This group provides a safe place to talk about health challenges as patients, family members, or caregivers. A zoom option will always be available for this group.

Meets the third Sunday of the month at 4:30pm in the Wesley Room and via Zoom
Your story, your family, and your faith are valued here. We stand in The GAP together. The GAP invites parents and guardians of LGBTQ youth to come together to share stories, support each other, and work to explore how we can love and support our loved ones and live out our faith. This is a confidential space where it is understood that we have an array of feelings and understandings of Scripture and faith, and what it looks like to live that out. We focus on two things: love of God and loving our families well. Contact Amy Jarboe for more information at AJarboe@BroadwayUnited.org.
