#WeChooseWelcome

Like most church congregations, we worship, study, pray and care for one another. Our passion is working together to try to make the world a better place. By doing tangible, concrete things that improve people’s lives, we honor God and live out what Jesus meant when he said, “Love God and love your neighbor.” If that resonates with you, we hope you’ll come visit.

Broad Street
Reads, Listens and Watches!

This summer we’re again exploring different ways we can stay connected to each other and to God. Youth and adults are invited to engage in a shared experience, by reading a book, listening to a podcast, and watching a movie.

Broad Street Reads — Sunday, July 29, following 10:00 a.m. worship, Palmer Hall, led by Brittany Porch. The congregation is invited to read Everything Happens for a Reason (and Other Lies I’ve Loved) by Kate Bowler. One reviewer writes, “Kate Bowler has stage IV cancer, and she faces it with courage and questions: Does everything happen for a reason? Is there a master plan? How can she best live with a beloved husband and young son while facing death? In this profound memoir she searches for answers with intelligence, honesty, and a wonderfully wry humor.” You can find this book at local book stores, online, or at your local library.

Broad Street Listens — Sunday, August 12, following 10:00 a.m. worship, Palmer Hall, led by Amy Miracle. Ear Hustle is a podcast that brings you stories of life inside San Quentin State Prison, shared and produced by those living there. The team produces stories that are sometimes difficult, often funny and always honest, offering a nuanced view of people living within the American prison system. You’re invited to listen to Season 2, Episode 17: The Row. How do inmates cope with the reality of being on death row? Listen at www.earhustlesq.com/.

Broad Street Watches — Sunday, August 19, following 10:00 a.m. worship, Palmer Hall, led by Ann Palmerton. If you haven’t already, watch Lars and the Real Girl, a parable about tolerance and the power of community. It’s the story of Lars, a young man so shy he can’t make friends or socialize, who announces he has a girlfriend he met online who turns out to be plastic and life size. His doctor advises his family and the small Wisconsin community to go along with the delusion. What follows is an emotional journey for Lars and the community surrounding him. You can find this film on Netflix, Amazon, and at your local library.

Summer Exhibition

 Dreamers of Columbus

Dreamers of Columbus Portraits in Palmer Hall hallway

Dreamers of Columbus Portraits in Palmer Hall hallway

Striking photographic portraits of local Dreamers with quotes from each.

Candid photographs by Columbus College of Art and Design graduate student and photojournalist Sahar Fadaian. Sahar initiated this project to portray an intimate face of Dreamers that goes beyond political status and into their personal lives. Quotes from each Dreamer were collected in conversational interviews by journalist Leticia Wallace to let the Dreamers speak for themselves. The exhibit is open through Friday, August 17, Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. and Sundays from 9:30-11:00 a.m. We encourage you to come view this thought-provoking show.
