“Give us such faith that, by day and by night, in all times and in all places, we may without fear entrust those who are dear to us to your never-failing love…” 

~Book of Common Worship

From birth to death, the church is here to provide guidance, care, support and a framework for the important events of our lives.

Baptism is one of two sacraments celebrated in Presbyterian churches (Communion is the other).  In baptism, we recognize the strength and power of God’s love. This love reaches out to us and claims us even when we are too young to understand or accept that love. Yet every age is a time to baptize and we cherish opportunities to baptize older children and adults.  If a child is to be baptized, at least one parent should be part of the Broad Street worshiping community.

A year long process, 7th and 8th graders meet to talk about who God is, where God is, how we can experience God and love others. With retreats and mission days scattered throughout the fall and winter and classes on Sunday mornings during the spring, students learn about God and about loving and serving others.  Mentors offer an important adult connection beyond that of parents.  All are welcome to join the classes–you don’t have to be a ‘church member.’ The only requirement is a willingness to learn and ask questions.

At the end of the year, students write a group faith statement about what they believe and decide if they would like to become full members of our community. Some do and some don’t. But all leave knowing more about God and experiencing God’s love.

We would love to celebrate this special day with you. However, during these pandemic days, with significant restrictions on gathering, we are offering weddings only to those already affiliated with this community of faith.

Broad Street pastors are available to provide care, comfort, and assistance in planning services.  The church building is available for calling hours and its pastors are available for funeral or memorial services, and also graveside services.
