Broadway nears funding goal for renovations!

Broadway has some great news to share! With the latest grants we have obtained, our fundraising for a major renovation of our social hall Hospitality Program area is nearly complete! We have recently received a $25,000 challenge grant from the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County (http://www.cfsjc.org) ”Click Here”. This means they will match dollar per dollar whatever donations from individuals or organizations for this specific project that we can obtain.

This is in addition to three other grants we have obtained that total $65,000, all given to help cover a total preliminary renovation budget of $110,000. So if we make the complete match from the Community Foundation, we will have $115,000 to use. We have already received donations of $16,000 toward the match, leaving us with $9,000 to go! Can you or anyone you know help us out with this? See options below.

Many years of use and the exceptional crowds (well over 100 people on some days) we have drawn to our Monday through Thursday morning Hospitality Program have made the necessity of repair and renovation imperative. The hospitality Program runs Monday through Thursday from 8:30 to 11 a.m. and includes a breakfast and opportunities to take a shower, do small loads of laundry, receive some basic clothing assistance and assistance with particular needs, including obtaining birth certifications and other documentation required to obtain ID cards and benefits

Over the past year we received some pro bono assistance from Kathy Schuth of Alliance Architects, who has helped us create a renovation plan that includes additional and handicapped accessible bathroom, shower and laundry facilities along with new flooring, lighting and renovation of existing bathrooms. The gray areas in the posted renovation plan show some of the critical renovation elements

As you can imagine, the heavy demand for our hospitality services is stretching our operational budget as well, so we will continue to need people’s ongoing support.

However, a special one-time donation that will basically double the amount you give would be most appreciated at the moment to help us wrap up this campaign and get the project going. This is the most significant renovation our church has seen in more than 60 years and will go a long way toward increasing our capacity to not only serve our guests better but to also encourage support from funders for other projects and outreach initiatives.

Look for more news on Facebook and elsewhere as we venture into what promises to be a very exciting 2015!

Here's the plan

Shining the light of hope
Broadway Christian Parish is a United Methodist congregation in the Southeast neighborhood of South Bend, Indiana. Together we hear and share the good news of God's abiding love for all. And, together we live out our call to ministry and service, bringing a message of hope, faith and joy. Please join us in responding to God's call.
Since the late 1960s, Broadway has been serving God by actively engaging with and serving our neighbors. Our ministries of hospitality include a food pantry and a breakfast and fellowship time Monday through Thursday mornings -- a place to come in off the street and take a shower, get a fresh set of clothing, do laundry, and receive other assistance. And, on Sundays our congregation -- along with other congregations and groups that support our ministry -- serves Sunday dinner to all who come. For more than 30 years we have together served some 100 people each Sunday.

Broadway offers a regular church program of worship, study, and fellowship, as well as social, emotional, spiritual, and logistical support to those who enter our building on a daily basis for whatever reason. We also provide pastoral care to many who find themselves in jail.

Our Broadway Jubilee Christmas Store provides gifts and Christmas dinners for families in need. And, we offer neighborhood programming, Bible study, reading programs, fellowship, and discussion groups, and other activities throughout the year.
