Activities at Broadneck Baptist Church
There are many regular opportunities for learning, spiritual growth, and fellowship for all ages that take place at Broadneck! Specific dates for these events can be found in our e-newsletter. Consider how you might want to get involved!
Sunday Potluck: At Broadneck, eating is key to our spiritual life! On the final Sunday of each month, everyone is invited to bring a dish to share and stay after worship to enjoy a meal together. We especially welcome our guests to this time so we can get a chance to know you informally around the table!
Adult Spiritual Formation: At various times throughout the year, groups gather for prayer, reflection, and dialogue around issues of faith. In recent years we have read books together by writers such as Marcus Borg, Phyllis Tickle, and Bryan McLaren; experienced prayer stations; learned to read scripture prayerfully through Lectio Divina; and gathered to discuss movies that connect with faith issues.
A major passion of our congregation is hosting dialogue on the topic of race relations. We host a Second Sunday Community Conversation on Race each month on Sunday afternoons, watching videos and inviting honest dialogue about what we can learn from our nation's history that can shape our present and help transform our future. Sign up here to participate.
Spiritual Formation for Youth: : Our teenagers are fully participating members of our congregation. They serve as worship leaders, participate in ministry groups, and learn alongside of both children and adults. They are key leaders in our Music and Arts Camp every summer. In addition to this, they gather several times a year with other youth from the Broadneck peninsula to collaborate on mission projects, learning opportunities, and to just have fun! The picture here is from our Martin Luther King, Jr. Day event in January 2017. There are many places for youth to learn and grow at Broadneck! Check our e-newsletter for upcoming opportunities
Spiritual Formation for Kids: : Each Sunday, our elementary-aged and preschool-aged children have a time of learning downstairs during the sermon portion of the worship service, where they interact with scripture and learn stories of faith. Throughout the school year we also have seasonal gatherings for kids to learn music, Bible stories, and participate in service projects. During the summer we offer various opportunities that tie Bible stories with intergenerational activities for families, in addition to our Music and Arts Camp and Intergenerational Mission Trip.

Community Events: Broadneck is committed to outreach to the Cape St. Claire community through a regular Halloween Open House held in conjunction with the Cape Shopping Center Trick-or-Treat night, as well as offering children’s activities every year at the Cape St. Claire Strawberry Festival. We have also offered community fellowship time through ice cream parties or build-a-taco nights, or even a block party complete with jazz music!
Children in Worship
It's important to our community that our school-aged children aren't shuttled off to a separate place during worship. Instead, they have the chance to sing, learn, and pray alongside us for much of the worship service before their interactive lesson downstairs.

We have been blessed to have a caring group of adults and caregivers to help with the youngest members of our community. If your baby or toddler decides quiet time is over during worship services, they can learn and play in our nursery and toddler room.

Nearly every week, we record and post recordings of the sermons at Broadneck Baptist to help us connect and reflect. To get to know our pastors and our community, browse the recordings from the last five years and wrestle and wonder along with us as we learn more about God and God's love for all.
