ANNOUNCEMENTS


New Sermon Series

Our new sermon series titled Asking for a Friend has started This three-week series tackles the big questions you always wanted to ask about church, faith, or the Bible but were too afraid to ask. Thank you to everyone that submitted questions via online or during worship services. Listen for your question January 12 through 26!

 

 

Holy Chow

You asked for it and now it’s back! Holy Chow will start up again on Wednesday, January 15 at noon in the Casual Worship Center with former LSU Tiger quarterback Rohan Davey as the speaker. All older adults are invited to Holy Chow monthly for fellowship, entertainment, and lunch! Please call Beth Fox at 225-924-6269 to RSVP. Online registration will be available soon.

 

Night of Prayer

Is your New Year’s resolution to pray more? Meet in the Sanctuary on Wednesday, January 15 at 6:00pm for a time of “soaking prayer,” a short vespers service, and communion followed by opportunities for experiential prayer, such as praying with color, prayers for forgiveness and remembrance, body prayers, and walking the labyrinth. This is great to do alone or bring a friend to feel the peace of prayer with you. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Shannon Sandifer at ssandifer@broadmoormethodist.org.

Let’s Red Stick Together

Our new missional ministry called Red Stick Together officially kicked off with a special dinner and winter coat giveaway on December 22 with 35 new friends. Thanks to all the volunteers and staff that helped us launch this live-changing ministry! Regular meetings of Red Stick Together will be Wednesdays at 6:00pm starting January 8. We are still in need of a few “table friends” to help facilitate conversation with diners and be a compassionate listener. This is a great way to meet people where they are and help them take their next step toward a Christ-centered life. If you are interested in being a table friend, please sign up at  www.broadmoormethodist.org (look for the Red Stick Together logo) or call Mary Saltzman at 225-924-6269.

 

 

Quarterly Food Drive

Southeast Ministries, a food pantry supported by Broadmoor United Methodist, is hosting quarterly food drives and are accepting donations every Sunday. From now until December 29, the focus is on collecting macaroni and cheese, hamburger helper, peanut butter, and jelly. Please place your donations in the red bins around the church campus. Your generosity will greatly help families and elderly in need in our neighborhood and around Baton Rouge.


January Missional Focus

This month’s missional focus is our Agape Fund. Agape is a Greek word meaning love – the kind of love that is passionately committed to the well-being of others. Our Agape Fund allows us to love our most vulnerable neighbors in very real and meaningful ways – paying for groceries to feed those who are hungry, a hotel room for those with no place to stay, a utility bill for those whose electricity is about to be shut off. By donating to the Agape Fund, you will help make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most. If you want to donate by check, please write “Agape Fund” in the memo line and place the envelope in the offering plate. You can also donate securely online by going to www.broadmoormethodist.org/giving and selecting “Missions/Agape” from the drop down menu. If you want to give to specific needs, please stop by Connection Café to see our NEW Heartburst Giving Tree next Sunday, January 12. Contact Rev. Kennon Pickett at kpickett@broadmoormethodist.org if you have any questions.
