Alpha is a 10-week series of sessions where anyone can explore the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment. What to expect: food, a talk, and discussion. Each session begins with food, followed by a talk addressing a different faith question each week, and concludes with a small group discussion where everyone has a chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic. Whether you are a long-time church attender, a person just beginning your Christian journey, or someone who does not know anything about Jesus Christ, Alpha is for you. Alpha is run all around the globe, and will be held at Broadmoor from 6:30 - 8:30pm on Wednesdays, September 6 - November 8. Alpha is free and childcare is available. Registration is required.

Broadmoor FREEcycle
need items lost in the flood?
Flood survivors, as you move back into your homes you may realize there are things you need. The Broadmoor FreeCycle page is a place where Broadmoor United Methodist members affected by the flood can post about items they need and be helped by those that stayed dry. Don't be shy about asking for help! Do you need a couch, a bed, an ironing board? Ask for it! There are several people that want to help, but not sure where to begin. If you have an item to provide, please post about it with a photo. The beauty of this page is that you can communicate directly with the person in need and set up a drop-off or pick-up time with them. Search for Broadmoor FreeCycle on Facebook to get started!
