“Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent” by Amy-Jill Levine
This class digs into the biblical stories of Christmas and traces it through the stories of Zechariah/Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit from the Magi. Professor Levine’s expertise in first-century Judaism provides helpful insights into the meaning the biblical stories had in their time and the implications they might have for Christians today.

Grief Support Group: A Break in the Clouds
Grief is a normal and natural reaction to loss. It is a journey that we may not choose or be ready for. But the journey finds us whether we are prepared or not. You are invited to an interactive discussion group to explore grief causes, feelings, symptoms and strategies. The journey may be difficult at times, but you do not have to experience it alone.
Led by Nancy Bertuleit, LPCC and Stephen Minister
Sundays 2-3:30pm in the B. Oliver room
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. Please contact Pastor Katy for more information, firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Led by Amy Jarboe
