This coming Sunday at BSM

April 30, 2015

Here’s what’s on deck for Sunday, May 3rd, 2015 at Broad Street Ministry.  Worship’s at 4:00pm.  Rev. Sammie Evans will preaching about one of the most misunderstood books of the Bible: Revelation.  Given the unrest throughout our nation, and particularly in Baltimore, keeping in our hearts and minds the thousands of lives that were taken in Nepal, and the pain and suffering that we see every day in our own city, Sammie is looking for where we find hope.  Hope that the resurrection isn’t something we celebrate once a year on Easter, but that something has been set into motion that we can experience and know every day, even amidst such grotesque injustice, sadness, and suffering.So we’re turning to Revelation for a hope. A hope that God is indeed making all things new. This is not the kind of hope that is set far off into the future in another place and time, but a hope that we can feel deep within our souls. A hope that we are being made new—even now. A hope that the suffering and sadness we feel can and will diminish. It is a hope rooted in faith that God is working in the world and that none of us are beyond repair.

We are looking forward to hearing the BSM classic Bring ‘Em All In by Michael Scott, the classic spiritual His Eye is on the Sparrow, and Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing by Stevie Wonder.

Every Sunday after worship, we also have community engagement groups.  These groups are a great way to get to know people, maybe learn something about yourselves, one another, and/or God, and get to know a few more peoples’ names.  This Sunday we’ve got threereally cool groups on deck.

Incarceration:  Join Haley and Jane for a  follow-up group that will continue the conversation on the topic of mass incarceration. The group welcomes all with questions, personal experience and suggestions for ways to get involved and encourage positive change.

World Missions in Zambia: Join Devin Johns, the Director of the Youth Initiative and Alternative Breaks, as she shares her experience of doing mission in Zambia this past year.

New and Nearly New: If you feel that you are New or Nearly New to BSM, Caring for Others (CFO) extends a special  invitation to join this group after worship to learn more about Broad Street as we learn more about you! This will be a chance to get an idea of who BSM is, where we’ve come from, and our place in Philadelphia.
