Angel Tree Update

February 11, 2016
Once again, Broad Street members showed their generosity and kindness by strongly supporting Angel Tree, the Prison Fellowship program which reaches out to children of inmates.  In 2015, our congregation delivered 148 Christmas gifts to 74 children in 29 families!  We also delivered 22 gifts to 11 members of the God’s 
Treasures class for their annual Christmas party.  Many thanks to all 
the members who participated by purchasing, wrapping and delivering these gifts in order to brighten Christmas for these children and help them maintain the connection to their incarcerated parent.

Changes to the Member Directory

February 11, 2016

Moving? Getting rid of your landline? Have a new email provider? If any of those sound familiar, you will want to update your profile at members.bspc.org. The bad news is the BSPC staff can't do it for you. Because you have a password (protecting any financial information you might have on the site) the changes need to be made by you. The good news? It's easy as 1-2-3-4:

  1. Go to members.bspc.org and login with your email and password
  2. Click on your name above the red band
  3. Click on the EDIT PROFILE button (you can't miss it!) Your profile will pop up and you can change your email, your address, add your birthday or children, anything you need to do to update your information.
  4. Hit SAVE and you're done!

We will still need changes from you to update our member database, so don't forget to call, email or stop by and see us.

If you have any problems, please call the church and we can walk you through it!

Three Week Series on Rabbi Jesus

February 11, 2016
How does understanding the Jewishness of Jesus deepen our understanding of who Jesus was and what he has to say to us today? 

In trying answer that question, sermons during Lent will focus on this topic through the lens of the parables of Jesus. To continue to delve into this topic, Palmer Hall at 9:45 a.m. will present three weeks of programming:

  • February 28  come and hear about the joint Tifereth Israel- BSPC trip to Israel.  Trip participants will share insights from their trip, with a particular emphasis on what it meant to share this experience with some of our Jewish neighbors.
  • On March 6 and 13 Dr. Brad Binau from Trinity Lutheran Seminary will present and unpack some of Jesus' additional parables.  

Come discover what a difference the Jewishness of Jesus makes in understanding these short stories he told.

Sabbatical for Ann Palmerton

February 11, 2016
"In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your salvation." (Isaiah 30:15)
During the months of April - May - June BSPC's associate pastor Ann Palmerton will be on sabbatical. Sabbatical invites a rediscovery of a rhythm of time anchored in our understanding of Sabbath.  Ann looks forward to travel and also to personal exploration and reflection.  One of the gifts of sabbatical time is the renewal of enthusiasm and creativity; discovering what makes a pastor's heart sing.  Here at BSPC we are not in the habit of pastors taking sabbaticals, so this experience is not only new to Ann, it is also new for us as a church.

February 02, 2016
Lent begins with an Ash Wednesday Service, February 19th at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary. Communion will be served and there will be an opportunity to have ashes placed on your forehead.  As ashes are placed on our foreheads, we remember our fragility, our limitations and we remember that, in all things we belong to God.  It is a great service for children.  Kids love ashes!  The nursery will be open but know that children are welcome in the service.  Ashes will also be available from 11:30 to 1 p.m. in the courtyard.   

Lent is a special season of the church year, an opportunity to deepen our relationship with God and God’s people.

This season of Lent, invite neighbors, family and friends to join us in exploring what it means to follow Jesus.  Forward them this video.  Invite them to worship. 

During Lent it is our custom to offer a daily devotional. In years past this has been in hard copy form, and more recently, through a website. Hard copies of the devotional will also be available. Watch for more information and how to receive it this year. Note that there is no text on Sunday – we encourage you to listen online or attend a church where you are. Themes are: Ash Wednesday, Baptism, Sacrifice, Memory, Humility, Forgiveness, Generosity, and Resurrection. The daily devotional was created by staff and members of The First United Methodist Church in Hurst, Texas and is used by permission.
