Summer Update & Fall Preview

Hey Church Family

I hope you’re having a good week! It’s been a few weeks since my last update so I wanted to write and update you on some upcoming events and new informational items. I’m leaving for Houston this Monday along with other members of our Family Mission Trip Ministry Team. Please be praying for us as we travel this week and share the Gospel.

Before I get to the new updates, I wanted to let you know that our church is starting to see some exciting signs of life both spiritually and organizationally. This summer has been filled with so many different events and activities. It’s easy to get lost with everything else that’s going on.

The thing that I’m most excited about is the number of people who are coming to trust in Christ as Lord and express that decision through baptism. This Sunday we had two more people baptized bringing our total to 30 baptisms this year! That’s an average of one baptism per week! It’s so encouraging to see.

Some of these baptisms are children within our church who are “coming of age” to understand the Gospel for themselves and making a decision to trust in Christ. Others have been adults who either were never baptized after becoming a Christian or who recently came to faith in Christ and expressed that faith publicly through baptism. Every story is unique and different.

I believe this is just the beginning of a new thing God is doing in our church. The fall of 2020 looked bleak on many different fronts. A spiritual malaise had taken hold in my own life. I could feel a similar malaise taking root in our congregation. Vital signs were starting to wane on every front.

If you go back and read updates from this time period you know that our answer to that malaise was to repent, get on our knees and pray for God to wake us up and revive our hearts. I know the Lord did a special work in my own heart and I believe many others had that same experience as well.

Throughout 2021 and especially this spring of 2022 we committed ourselves to prayer and fasting. We openly declared our absolute dependency on God. We cried out in desperation for Him to do something that ONLY HE could do. We saw God answer prayers specifically and (in some cases) miraculously.

As a result of these cultural changes, signs of spiritual life are returning again. It’s a gracious gift from God for which I’m so thankful.

Now is not the time to shrink back. Now is the time to press in even more: more humility, more prayer, more worship, more evangelism, and an ever increasing commitment to spread our joy in Christ to the unreached peoples of the earth.

In the sections below you’re going to read about new events, new opportunities to serve and exciting developments about Broadview church as a whole. In light of all of that “activity” let us not forget the MOST IMPORTANT THING.

Remember the words that Jesus spoke to Martha’s busy busy heart.

“But one thing is necessary. Mary has made the right choice, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Mary was Martha’s sister and the “right choice” she made was to commune with Jesus, sitting at His Feet.

Let us never become so busy doing things “for Jesus” that we neglect our time “with Jesus.” Let us never become a church that is super busy but spiritually hallow.

Abiding in Christ is the one thing that’s necessary. Every thing else in life must flow from that. If that one thing is absent – it doesn’t matter what else is present.

As we move forward into this Fall season I hope we’ll all keep that in mind. There’s nothing wrong with a busy calendar and an active church. It’s actually a positive sign of life.

But having a busy life doesn’t mean we have to have a busy heart. Let’s be people whose hearts are singularly devoted to communion with Christ.

Summer Updates

With that said, I want to spend the rest of this week’s update to fill you in on some important announcements and some new upcoming events.

Growing Pains

As I mentioned earlier, our church is growing in some exciting ways. As you’ll see in the video above, much of that growth includes young families with preschool aged children.

To accommodate that growth we need to add some classrooms and enlist some new volunteers! Adding one new classroom at each hour means we need to enlist about 16 volunteers.

Right now, our preschool ministry provides programming at the 9:30 and 11:00 hour. There are a minimum of two volunteers per classroom so that’s four volunteers. Because it’s so difficult to get people to serve “long term” we rotate the volunteers out every week. Four times four is sixteen.

The volunteers who serve in our preschool ministry do an important work. Many of the young kids who make decisions in our children’s ministry do so because of the solid foundation that was laid during preschool. It’s not “childcare.” It’s discipleship.

Due to safety guidelines and sexual abuse prevention efforts, we only allow female volunteers to serve in our preschool ministry. Given that limited pool from which we are able to draw, it’s all the more important for you to join us in praying for God to raise up a new group of volunteers.

If you’re willing to serve, please email Tiffany with your information. You will go through a background check and screening process and then be qualified to serve.

With this kind of growth happening this fast we can’t afford to wait very long! I hope you’ll watch the video, sign up to serve and then call a friend and convince them to serve alongside you. It’s just once a month. You can do it!

Even if you aren’t able to serve right now, please join me and the rest of our staff in praying for God to meet this need.

Email Tiffany

Final Thoughts

Below you’ll see a new calendar of events as well as a new small group kicking off next month. Please take note of these important dates and upcoming events.

Don’t forget to pray for our mission team this week in Houston. Also, remember we have our 5th Sunday Singing next Sunday at 5:00PM followed by an Ice Creme Social (Blue Bell!) If you’ve never been to a hymn sing with ice creme then you haven’t really lived.

Our final women’s ministry summer event is going down NEXT TUESDAY, August 2nd. The event will go from 6:00PM to 8:30PM. Bring your favorite salad and make some new friends. If you’re new to Broadview this is a great way to meet new people.

If there’s anyway I can pray for you please let me know. If you have other announcements that need to be made please reply back to this email and we can include them in the next update. I hope you have a great rest of your week!

Until He Comes,

Pastor Wes

NEW GROUPS

New Men’s Bible Study

Courageous

Sunday Nights @ 5PM

Starts August 28th

All men in our church are invited to participate in a new mens only Bible study on Sunday nights at 5PM. This mens group will examine what God’s Word has to say about Fatherhood by using the Courageous Bible Studymaterials based on the movie Courageous.

In the video above you can listen to Jon Underwood talk about the movie, the small group and why it would be a worthy investment whether you’re a dad to be, a current father or empty nester.

You can sign up for the class here.

New Sunday Small Group!

Sunday’s @ 11:00AM

Starts May 17th

We are starting a new young adult small group at 11:00am on Sunday mornings! This small group will begin by studying through the book of Ephesians. The class will be led by Dustin Malone and consist of a blend between expositional Bible teaching and group discussion.

The book of Ephesians is one of THE BEST New Testament letters for understanding the truth of the Gospel and how it applies to your every day life. It’s also a great book for understanding God’s design for the local church.

No matter what season of life you find yourself in, you will benefit from this small group. The group is open to all (not just young adults). It will launch on May 17th. You can go ahead and preregister if you think you might be interested.

Contact Dustin at ‭(325) 370-9777‬ for more information.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Ice Cream Social

July 31st | 6:00PM

This coming July 31st we are having our 5th Sunday Singing. We will bust out the hymnals and gathering together to sing. These are always great gatherings for getting the whole church together under one roof. You call out your favorite hymn and we sing to one another the great truths of the Gospel for the rest of the evening.

Fifth Sunday Singings are great by themselves. They’re even greater with a little Blue Bell Ice Cream. So our J.O.Y. Ministry will be hosting an Ice Cream social after the 5th Sunday Singing with a silent auction/raffle to raise money for our Senior Adult Ministry.

Please make plans to be there and stick around for dessert!

Super Salad Supper

August 2nd | 6:00-8:30PM

Our final women’s event for the summer is scheduled for August 2nd at 6:30. This month they will be hosting a Super Salad Supper in our Education Building.

Bring your favorite salad to share. We will eat, fellowship and have a devotional time together.

Register

Preschool Volunteer Rally

August 14th | 12:45PM

August 14th we are going to have a Preschool Volunteer Rally! This will be a quick meeting directly following the third service where we will discuss curriculum, calendars, and review safety procedures. It is very important for all current and prospective volunteers to attend if at all possible.

Pizza and salad will be provided.

Blessing Breakfast

August 21st | 8:15AM

We want to invite you and your family to a breakfast on Promotion Sunday, August 21st, from 8:15AM-9:15AM in the Education Building. We will enjoy a time of fellowship with other families, present each child with a new Bible, and pray a blessing over these children as they move forward. If you are able to attend this event, please let Tiffany know! Other family members are also invited but please RSVP your number to Tiffany Lohse.

Men’s Breakfast

August 27th | 7:30AM

Education Building

It’s back! We are kicking off our fall season of men’s ministry with a Men’s Breakfast gathering on August 27th at 7:30AM. There will be a delicious breakfast served starting at 7:30. That will be followed by a time of fellowship and prayer. There will be a speaker who will share a testimony or brief devotional followed by a time to hang out and play dominos afterwards.

Auditions for Worship Ministry

September 11 | 2:00-4:00PM

We are adding vocalists, instrumentalists and media techs to our worship team. With some of the turnover that has taken place over the past few years we have a growing need to add new folks to our team. If you have a desire and gift for leading others in worship through song please let us know!

You can email Taylor for more information or to schedule your audition. Vocalists will be asked to sing a song and instrumentalists will be asked to play. The song can be given to you in advance of the audition once you email Taylor and let him know about your interest.

We are looking for volunteers in every area: vocalists, guitarists (lead/rhythm), bass, drums, keys, sound board, Pro-presenter, livestream, camera operators. If you have an interest in this area now is the time to step up and serve!

Email Taylor

Hands & Feet Ministry

October 20-22

It’s time again for our Hands & Feet ministry! We started this ministry in 2021 and it’s a ministry to members of our church who have a need related to their home that they cannot do themselves or cannot afford to have done.

This year, we are also opening up the ministry to friends of members or unchurch people from within our community. If you know someone for whom this would make a positive impact please let them know.If you HAVE a project we need you to fill out a submission form as soon as you can.

If you are willing to WORK on these projects we need you to register as well so we can be better organized on who is working when and how to create our teams.

Finally, if you are willing to GIVE to this ministry, any amount will help to make a big impact. Last year, some of the projects exceeded $1,000 but those were also the projects that made the biggest impact. Through your generosity we will be able to bless our city in a significant way.

YOU CAN DO ALL THREE OF THOSE THINGS HERE.

If you have any question please contact Robert Williamson at ‭(325) 268-7553‬

Responding to Sexual Abuse in the SBC

Hey Church Family, 

I hope you’re having a good weekend. This Sunday is Memorial Day Weekend at Broadview as well as Senior Graduation Recognition and so it should be a really special day of worship. I hope you’ll make plans to join us. 

The originally planned 5th Sunday Singing for this Sunday at 5PM has been cancelled. The next 5th Sunday Singing will be July 31st.

There are several folks in our church who’ve come down with COVID this past week so please be praying for them. So far, none of them have been hospitalized and for that I’m very thankful. The majority of the spread seems to be from a few of our adult small groups or potentially our traditional worship choir. It’s a good reminder to keep your hands washed and practice other wise prevention measures.

Guidepost Report

In this week’s update I wanted to respond to the report that was released by the SBC Sexual Abuse Task Force. Last year, the messengers attending the Annual Meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention voted overwhelmingly to appoint a sexual abuse task force who would engage an independent firm to investigate the Executive Committee of the SBC on charges of improperly handling reports of sexual abuse as well as mistreatment of sexual abuse survivors within the SBC

I was at that Annual Meeting. I voted for that motion and I’ve been following their work closely, awaiting the report. The report was published this past week. The report totals close to 400 pages including appendixes. I’ll provide links to the documents below. I encourage you to read them and if nothing else expose yourself to the executive summary in the first few pages of the full report. 

Click here for Guidepost Full Report

Click here for Appendices to Guidepost Report pt. #1 

Click here for Appendices to Guidepost Report pt. #2

My initial reaction, after reading the report, was one of anger, grief and disillusionment. My heart breaks for the survivors and the trauma they experienced. I admire their courage and tenacity. While some of the accusations in the report are contested, the facts and evidence presented should compel lament, repentance and a desire for change.

The goal of the investigation was to bring to light every reported instance of sexual abuse that may have occurred at any of the 47,000+ SBC churches over the last two decades. The Task Force investigated several hundred reported cases.

As part of that investigation, they found a list of convicted sex offenders that had been compiled and documented. This list was then sent to the president of the Executive Committee but never published for other SBC churches to see. Had they been reported then, (as they are now) churches would’ve been able to see a master listing of credibly accused offenders so as to protect themselves and their vulnerable populations from repeat offenses.

These findings are shocking, sobering and expose an organizational rot that needs to be addressed. I’m hopeful that this upcoming Annual Meeting will afford messengers an opportunity to act on the recommendations of the sexual abuse task force and begin the process of making improvements in this area. Thankfully, some steps have already been taken to improve our prevention efforts. Moreover, it is now much easier to report those convicted of sexual abuse as well as churches/organizations who improperly handle such things. 

Abuse Prevention at Broadview

This report raises the question of our own sexual abuse reporting/prevention practices at Broadview.

I want to say without equivocation that we find any form of sexual abuse to be both criminal and sinful. Abusers will find no safe haven at Broadview. We will gladly cooperate with authorities when and if these types of allegations ever surface. We will forever remain vigilant to protect the vulnerable populations entrusted to our care. 

Here are some of the ways we try and prevent abuse in our church right now:

  1. Broadview has a Children’s Ministry Policy Manual that covers enlistment of leaders, training, and protocols to insure all children are safe and protected. This manual lays out a step by step process for reporting abuse and how accusations are handled.  
  2. Broadview requires all leaders and volunteers to be background checked, with a required training module in sexual abuse awareness training through Ministry Safe. These are renewed every two years.  
  3. Broadview has a safety team that is certified and trained who monitor all building entrances and corridors. Our building is under 24 hour video surveillance for the protection of our volunteers and our vulnerable populations.

A few years ago we revised our ministry policies and volunteer onboarding process for vulnerable populations. We have a clear cut process for handling accusations of sexual abuse. We are committed to protecting our vulnerable populations and those who are potential victims of sexual abuse.

Our local church should be a place of safety and healing. If you’ve ever experienced abuse (whether on our campus or at any other time) we are committed to seeing justice take place and your soul being properly cared for. Please join me in praying for those affected by these unspeakable acts. 

Let us also pray for our family churches in this difficult season and the continued protection of every member at Broadview Baptist Church. 

Other Important Updates

Having responded to the big news in the SBC, I also need to address the other devastating events of the past few weeks. 

If you’ve been watching the news then you know about the absolute horror many parents are walking through in Uvalde, TX with the recent school shooting. I cannot even begin to imagine what the parents and community are going through right now. Please keep them in your prayers.

I know people who are on the ground ministering to some of the families and it is absolutely heart breaking to hear the reports. It’s such a senseless tragedy and proof positive of the evil and brokenness of our world. It creates an even stronger longing for the return of Christ and the replacement of this broken world with the Kingdom that is to come. 

In addition to the school shootings, we had the Mesquite Heat Fire last week. Several folks in our church family had to evacuate their homes. I know some (not members of our church) who lost everything. It’s a reminder that things can go from one extreme to the next in the blink of an eye. 

Church Family Crisis Fund

These crises are a reminder of the great gift we’ve been given in the local church. We don’t have to walk through these days alone or in our own strength. We are encouraged to grieve with those who grieve and rejoice with those who rejoice. (Rom 12:15) We are to bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ. (Gal 6:2) 

Part of the way we’re able to support one another in our congregation is through a special fund that was set up called the “Church Family Crisis Fund.” While our Local Missions Offering is used to help with local benevolence needs and assisting other non-profits in Abilene, the CFCF is money given BY Broadview Members FOR other Broadview Members.

I’ve seen first hand how the family crisis fund has been used by God to absolutely change a person’s life. You have no idea the impact that we’re able to make when we partner together to generously provide for these crisis needs as they arise. The disbursement of funds is regulated by a small board to ensure accountability and proper stewardship. 

Given the rise in prices due to inflation and some major crises that have come up in our church family, I wanted to use this email to draw your attention to the fund. Many of you reading this are new to our church and may not even know about this ministry.

If you’ve been blessed with some “extra” and you’d like to give to the family crisis fund to help us continue ministering to members of our church family in their time of need, you can designate a gift today.  

Final Thoughts

As I close out this weeks update I want to encourage you to please sign up your child for our Vacation Bible School if you haven’t already done so. You’ll see info on how to do that in the announcements below. Remember, if you want a shirt you need to PRE PAY BY TODAY! 

I’ll be out of the pulpit on July 12th and the 19th as I travel to Anaheim for the SBC Annual Meeting. Because of that, we will be taking a short break in our series on the book of Revelation. This week will be a special stand alone message in light of our graduating seniors. If you’d like to attend the annual meeting in Anaheim as a Broadview messenger then please reply to this email and let me know!

On June 18th we are planning another community outreach event to spread the word about our VBS kick-off. We will continue covering the area that was mapped out for our first community outreach. If you’re willing to help out, please sign up with your commitment as well as how many you plan to bring with you. We will meet at the church at 9AM on June 18th. 

Finally, if you haven’t yet registered for the family mission trip, summer camps or other related events then please make plans to do so. You can find most of the registration links online or sign up sheets in the Gathering Place. 

That’s all I’ve got for this week. If there is any way I can pray for you please let me know! You can just reply to this email.

Pastor Wes

Celebrating Advent

Hey Church Family

I hope you had a great weekend! This week we say goodbye to November and hello to December. In today’s update, I want to fill you in on a few things that are happening RIGHT NOW and then some additional announcements that are coming up in the next few weeks.

Advent at Broadview – Starts today!
Women’s Ministry Brunch – December 4th
J.O.Y. Ministry Gathering – December 11th
Disaster Relief Training – December 11th

Celebrating Advent

Let’s start with our Advent celebration this year at Broadview. We kicked off Advent in each of our morning worship services today. We lit the “hope” candle and started a new sermon series on “The Mystery of God” that will take us all the way up to Christmas.

I’m excited to see what God is going to do in this season. Something new we’re doing this year is a church-wide Bible reading plan and Advent devotional. We did a church-wide Bible reading plan for our “Off The Grid” spiritual growth campaign and it was well received. This will continue that effort but in a different way.

If you’re interested in watching a video on how you can participate you can watch it below. Otherwise, keep reading and I’ll give you all the details. 

Lead Pastor Wes Terry explains how to participate in the 2021 Advent Devotional and Bible reading plan through the Dwell app and Broadview group account.  

A New Discipleship Tool

There’s a Bible reading app that I’ve been using for several years now and when I saw that they were going to have an Advent devotional to go along with an Advent themed Bible reading plan I knew it was time to share the love and spread the Word about this great discipleship tool.

The name of the Bible app is “Dwell.” When I say it’s a Bible reading app I mean it literally reads the Bible to you. And I’m not talking about those boring, computerized, robot-sounding voices. I’m talking about “butter-in-your-ears listen-to-them-read-the-phone-book” kind of voices.

My personal favorite is David. He’s a British narrator who’s described as “warm and sophisticated.” Other folks on staff like Felix. He’s an East African narrator who’s described as “energetic and warm.” That’s just two of 15 voices, each with their unique style and personality. (They’re even gettting kid voices so they can engage with Scripture through listening as well.)

I’m sure you’ll find the perfect voice that fits your unique personality and benefit greatly from engaging God in his Word through listening and meditation.

You might think that listening to the Bible isn’t as good as reading it. Maybe it feels like cheating or “taking the easy way out.” If that’s the case, please know they have a reading feature alongside of the listening feature. But even if they didn’t, listening to Scripture in no way undermines the impact God’s Word can have on your heart.

For centuries, people’s only engagement with the Word of God came through listening and oral traditions. This tool recaptures that method and leverages modern day technology combined with beautiful artwork to really bring the Bible to life. The message never changes, but our tools and technological mediums do. This is a new tool for a new day.

Get Started Today!

Because Dwell’s Advent devotional is so good; and because Dwell is such a valuable discipleship tool, we signed up for a church account so that everybody in our congregation can benefit. Usually, to get all the features in the app, it costs about $40 a year. If you sign up through our church account, then you’ll get all of the features for free! You’ll also get to participate in future Bible reading plans as we pursue God together in His Word.

So if you haven’t already done so, please download the app and sign up using our group page! The advent devotional starts today so don’t delay!

Women’s Ministry Brunch

December 4th | 10-12

Education Building

Also going down this week is our women’s ministry Christmas Brunch. This is something our women’s ministry has been putting on for several years now.

This is a great way to get to know other ladies at Broadview and have some fun while you’re at it.

There will be breakfast food served at 10AM and time for fun and games throughout the gathering. There will be a testimony given and also an ornament exchange (so bring one to give away as well!)

As a way of giving back please also bring a non-perishable canned food item as well.

If you have any questions you can reply to this email or contact Tamara or Terryfor more information. 

Joy To The World Celebration

December 11th 

Food & Fellowship: 2:30-4:30

Caroling & Christmas Lights: 5:30-7:30

The week after the Women’s Ministry Christmas brunch comes the J.O.Y. Ministry’s Christmas Gathering. This years gathering is entitled “Joy to the World.”

They will host food, fun and fellowship in our Education Building from 2:30-4:30. You’ll want to bring a gift for the gift exchange ranging from $5-10 in value. There will be plenty of finger foods, games, Christmas music and fun. Please put the date on your calendar and make plans to be there.

After the party there will be an “after-party” for Christmas caroling and looking at Christmas lights. Ken will fire up the people mover (for anybody who doesn’t like driving at dark) and there will be stops to visit some of our homebound members or shut ins. 

Not only will you get to see some Christmas lights throughout the city of Abilene; you’ll also be able to minister to others by singing about the TRUE light of the world, the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Disaster Relief Training

December 11th

Lastly, don’t forget about our Disaster Relief Training the morning of December 11th. It will make for a full day but it’s a wonderful opportunity to get credentialed to serve in the case of a disaster. 

Part of being an Acts 1:8 Church is being there for people when disaster strikes. People are often most receptive to the Gospel when their world has been turned upside down.

As I mentioned in my previous updates, you can do the entire training online at your own leisure if you want.

Watch the training here.

If you’d prefer to be trained alongside others then we will have a group training in the morning (10:00-11:30am) followed by a “mud out” training after lunch (1:00-2:30pm) 

This does not cost you anything but your time and effort. Disasters don’t strike every day. But, when they do, being able to help makes a tremendous difference. 

Being qualified to serve doesn’t obligate you to go. It just gives you all of the tools and credentials so that you “can go” when God chooses to send you.

Closing Thoughts

That’s it for this week’s update. Remember if there’s something you need communicated “church-wide” you can alway reply to this email with a description of the event and any other information that needs to be communicated.

For those of you who helped with the Thanksgiving Meal or Blessing Bags mentioned in last week’s update, thank you so much for everything. Last Sunday was a really special night and we had a great turn out. I’m also excited to see how the Blessing Bags will minister to our homeless population in Abilene.

With December coming in just a few days, it’s time to start highlighting our World Missions Offering and involvement in International Missions. For the past two weeks in a row we’ve had missionary partners visit our church and give updates on what’s going on throughout the rest of the world. 

Our next update will have specific information on some of those updates as well as other ways we can partner together to be an Acts 1:8 Church.

Don’t forget, if you need a physical copy of the Advent book we still have plenty available in the church office. 

If there’s anyway I can pray for you please let me know by replying to this email. I hope you have a great rest of your week!

Blessings,

Pastor Wes

A Special Prayer Request

Hey Church Family

 

I hope you’ve had a great week! We are officially out of the spring semester and well into summer. VBS kicked off this past Sunday and it’s been a crazy few weeks around the office. From decorating the church to 100+ kids running around the halls it’s been an awesome sight to see.

I’ve got a couple of things I’d like to put on your radar. You can continue reading or just watch the video below,

Video Weekly Update – June 9th, 2021

Gospel Night for VBS

The first and most important item is the Gospel Night for Vacation Bible School this coming Thursday. Every year during VBS we present the Gospel in a clear and compelling way. This year, Tanner Clarke will be making that Gospel presentation on Thursday night from 6:30-7:45 or so.

There are three rotations and each group will receive a separate presentation. If you can pray for the entire hour please do so! If you can’t, please pray as much and as often as you can. Salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit regardless of the person’s age. God’s Spirit will move in response to the prayers of His people. Through your prayers, you’ll be playing a pivotal role in the lives of these kids. I’m excited to see and report back how God moves.

Personal News

Right after VBS, my family and I will be taking a trip up to Nashville, Tennessee. The trip has a three-fold agenda.

First we are going to Hendersonville to attend Sunday worship at Long Hollow Baptist Church. This church is pastored by Robby Gallaty and has been experiencing a unique movement of God since December of last year. I’ve been following this movement from a distance for many months now and I’m very excited to witness it in person.

After church on Sunday we will drive down to Nashville, TN and attend the SEND conference and SBC Annual Meeting. The SEND conference is Sunday and Monday. The SBC Annual Meeting is Tuesday and Wednesday. For those who don’t know, Broadview is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention and have been since our founding.

There are many things going on in the life of our convention. If you keep up with that sort of thing, you’ll know there are multiple points of tension and disagreement among our cooperating churches. It will be an important and defining moment for the life of our denomination.

As of now, there are over 16,000 messengers. Myself and a few other members of our church will look to represent our congregation well during the time of the annual meeting. Please be praying for that gathering as well as the public witness of the SBC. The reputation of the SBC positively or negatively affects our own public witness as we are an affiliated church.

The last and most important reason for this trip is a family vacation. My wife and kids will stop in Arkansas on the way back home. We plan on staying a few days in Boles, AR right next to the Ouachita National Forest. I’m really looking forward to renting an ATV and riding around in the forrest with my family, enjoying God’s good creation.

We’ll be leaving on the 10th and back home on the 20th. During those two Sundays someone else will be covering the pulpit. Tanner Clarke will be preaching this weekend and Randy Voorhees will be preaching the weekend after that. I’m really looking forward to the trip but I’m also excited for our church to hear from these two men while I’m away.

Pastoral Ordination Service

Part of the reason Tanner is preaching this Sunday is because our congregation will soon be affirming the call of God on his life into pastoral ministry. Before coming to Broadview Tanner and Kendra served as missionaries with the International Mission Board. Tanner currently serves as the director of the BSM at Hardin Simmons University.

Broadview’s commitment to international missions was part of the reason Tanner and Kendra originally joined our church. We are committed to being a sending church. That’s part of the reason we want to affirm God’s calling on Tanner’s life through an ordination service. Whether it’s pastoral ministry here in the states or a missionary ministry overseas, we want to be a church that sends and supports them for whatever comes next.

Some of you participated in a similar service when we performed it for Taylor and Jospeh a few years back. Tanner’s pastoral ordination service will be on July 18th. So I hope you’ll be praying for him this weekend and also for that special time. We’ve been praying for God to make us a “sending” church and it’s exciting to see that play our more and more with each passing year.

Men’s Conference

The last thing I’ll mention before signing off is a Men’s Conference coming up August 20th. This is really a simulcast of a live event hosting by Right Now Media in Rockwall, TX. The speakers, however, are so top notch that I thought it a worthy investment of our time.

There has been a growing interest in some type of organized men’s ministry at Broadview. We used to meet weekly for a men’s breakfast and there are still a handful of men who meet throughout the week whether Tuesday morning, Wednesday lunch or Sunday nights. However, a larger more organized approach is still lacking.

This conference is not a solution to that problem but it IS an opportunity to get together, study God’s Word on biblical manhood and connect with like-minded men in our congregation. With the two different campuses and four morning worship services it’s hard to get to know every one.

Unfortunately, there’s a $20 ticket fee if you sign up through the Right Now Media website. There’s nothing I can do about that fee as it’s set by Right Now Media. That $20 does not come back to our church. It’s a way for them to cover the extensive costs of streaming the event to so many people. If that’s a deterrent, I understand. However, if you can make it, I really think it’ll be a great time of worship and fellowship.

The event starts at 6:30PM and goes until 10:00PM.

Conclusion

That’s it for me this week. Remember that our next Monday prayer gathering isn’t until the LAST Monday of this month. We will meet on June 28th at 6PM. Even though we’re no longer meeting weekly for prayer, I still want to challenge you to press into a life of prayer and fasting throughout the summer.

Over these past few weeks the Lord has been teaching me that with every new season comes a new opportunity to grow and learn new things about the Lord. In a season of sprinting there are spiritual rhythms that best position you to grow in your walk with Jesus. In seasons of resting/Sabbath those spiritual rhythms may change. The key is to take advantage of whatever season you’re in and leverage it for growing in your knowledge of God.

If there is any way I can pray for you in particular please reply to this email and let me know. Be sure you check out the upcoming events below for how to stay engaged throughout the rest of the summer!

Until He Comes,

Pastor Wes

New Transportation Ministry

We’re starting a new ministry in our church to people who need help with transportation.

Most of us just get in our car and go to various appointments, grocery shopping, trip to the library; the list of things we do is an everyday occurrence.  That’s not the case for many other people in our congregation. For them, finding a ride can prove quiet challenging.

That’s why we’re starting this ministry. It’s an opportunity for us, as a community of believers, to volunteer to give these members a ride. There will be a sign-up sheet at the Gathering Place and at the Information Desk for those of you who would be interested in donating some of your time to this new ministry.

You can also sign up online. You may be able to offer several hours per week, or even one or two hours per week.  After you sign up, we will contact you with more information.   Thanks so much!

Let’s Block Party!

Hey Church Family

 

I hope you’ve had a great week! It’s hard to believe we’re already at the end of the spring semester. The older I get the faster time goes. The Lord has blessed our church these past four months and I’m so thankful.

If you’ve not been on campus since the beginning of the “COVID Days,” I hope you’ll consider joining us again soon. The effectiveness of the vaccines have been such a good gift from the Lord to our country and our community. While nobody would ever want to live through 2020 again, the Lord has brought good out of the hardship.

Let’s Block Party!

We are gathering together for a block party this coming SATURDAY at Broadview West. The west campus is located at 6500 Military Drive. (Directly north of Dyess Air Force Base). I hope you’ll take time out of your Saturday to join us. We want it to be a “fun-for-the-whole-family” church-wide gathering.

The goal of this block party is to unite our two campuses together and serve the community surrounding Broadview West. We will be passing out flyers tomorrow and Saturday morning if anybody wants to help advertise the event.

You can contact Vernon directly.

Here are some of the details:

Food: Hot dogs, chips, water, cotton candy, snow cones

Kids stuff: bouncy houses, jump ropes, hoola hoops, sidewalk chalk, cake walk, putt putt, fishing game

For adults: Corn hole, music, baskets of food raffle

Remember if you signed up to be a volunteer we need you there by 4:30. Everybody else we will see you there at 5:00!

Serve as a Volunteer

Only A Few Spots Left

I also want to encourage you to sign up your child for Vacation Bible School if you haven’t already done so. We limited the number of participants this year and there are only a handful of spots left.

I honestly didn’t think they’d fill up this fast but they have! Hopefully next year we won’t have to cap the attendance but we are doing what we have to do for this year. You can sign up your child by visiting broadview.life/vbs.

Recognizing Seniors & Youth Camp

Before we close out this week’s update I want to encourage you to join us for church this coming weekend. We will have a special recognition of our graduating seniors. Please be praying for these students as they step out into a pivotal new season of their life.

There is also a Youth Camp Parent Meeting this coming Sunday, May 23rd, at 12:15PM in the Education Building. You can contact Pastor Joseph for more information. This years youth camp is July 5-9 at the Highland Lakes encampment in Spicewood, TX.

You can learn more about the camp here.

Conclusion

That’s it for me this week. I really hope to see yall this coming weekend at Broadview West. Remember, there will be no prayer meeting this next Monday. For the summer we will meet the LAST Monday of June, July, August and September. Thank you to everyone who made the prayer meetings this spring so special.

The Lord has poured new life into our congregation and the future is bright. Please continue praying for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Pray that we have everything we need to walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit for the days and months ahead.

If there is any way I can pray for you in particular please reply to this email and let me know. Be sure you check out the upcoming events below for how to stay engaged throughout the summer!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hey Church Family

I hope you’ve had a great week so far. The rain has been nice these past few days. Reminds me of an old saying I heard growing up: “April showers bring May flowers.” May is a great month for many reasons so let me put a few dates on your radar if you haven’t already put them on your calendar.

Block Party

On May 22nd we are hosting our Block Party at Broadview West. It will start at 5PM and go to 6:30PM. We will have hot dogs, air castles, fun, games and a great time for the whole family. It’s also a great chance to serve with your entire family to bless the community surrounding Broadview West.

For those of you new to Broadview I explained the history and current ministry of our West Campus in the last weekly update. If you’re interested in serving or if you have any questions about the event please talk to Tiffany Lohse or call the church office.

Pastor Wes with a video update for the end of April and beginning of May.

VBS Registration

Last update I made an appeal for some more VBS Volunteers and I just want to commend you for stepping up to the plate and filling all of those positions. We are opening up registration for kiddos on May 1st so be sure you’re at the ready. You can use the link below.

Sign up for VBS!

Remember, we have a VBS volunteer training on May 13th at 6PM.

VBS is one of the largest outreach events we do every year. COVID has changed the way we’re doing VBS this year but we still expect it to have a big impact on the kids in our community and those in our church. Please be praying for the event.

This past Monday we put out a prayer request to raise $800 for feeding VBS volunteers during the week. Amazingly, God answered that prayer within the hour! The Lord is good and I’m excited to see how He will move in the lives of these kiddos through this outreach.

A Generous Church

Speaking of generosity in our church, I just have to celebrate again your willingness to help meet the practical needs of people in our city. Last update I spoke about the Embrace Grace shower and within the FIRST week of the display being up every item tag was taken.

Check out this screen shots from our Embrace Grace director, Janet White. Like she says, I would encourage anybody who can make it to make an appearance at the shower on Saturday and say hello. It starts at 2PM in the Main Building Fellowship Hall.

An Investment Into Our Students

For those of you who have given towards these needs, thank you so much. It really does make a difference. Also, a percentage of every dollar you give to our General Fund goes to make things like Embrace Grace possible so thanks to everyone who gives.

There is one more need that we have coming up for those who are interested in some strategic generosity. Our students are attending youth camp at Highland Lakes encampment in Spicewood, TX. You can learn more about the camp here

Camp Scholarships

We have several students who will be going to camp who do not have the financial means to cover the student portion of the cost. It’s $300 per student and the church is covering 1/2 of that amount through our General Fund. We are looking to secure 15 scholarships for students in need. That’s a total of $2,250.

If you are interested in sponsoring a student or just giving towards this need you can do so here.

Youth camp has historically been a very important part of the ministry to students in our church. It’s an opportunity not just for making friendships and building relationships. It’s also a week long focus on the Lord and his will for each student. First time decisions for Christ are often made during youth camp.

Any amount you give towards this need will be used by the Lord to help further His redemptive purposes in the lives of these students. Many of the students in our youth ministry are not Christians. They come because the church feels like a safe place for them. An encounter with the Lord at church camp could change their lives forever.

Please be praying for this camp and all the students who attend. Pray for Joseph and the entire student ministry team as they invest into the lives of these students each week and throughout the year. It requires a great deal of wisdom, discernment and love. If you have any questions you can email Joseph directly.

Discover Broadview

The last thing I’ll mention is the Discover Broadview lunch this coming Sunday. We typically do this lunch on the second Sunday of every month but given the second Sunday is Mother’s Day we are moving the date. This is a lunch for people wanting to learn more about Broadview.

If you’ve been visiting and are interested in church membership then this is an ideal environment to explore that decision. Attending the lunch doesn’t make you a member but you can join during the lunch if you want (you can also join at any other time by just talking with me or one of the staff after service or during the week.) 

It’s really just an informal lunch with me (and usually my family) to help me get to know new folks in the church and help new folks in the church get answers to their questions. If you plan on coming this Sunday reply to this email and let me know or register below.

Sign up for this Sunday’s Discover Broadview Lunch

Conclusion

That’s it for this week! You can read about more upcoming events below if you’re interested. 

I hope you’ll join us this Sunday as we continue our study in the book of the Revelation and then again on Monday as we gather to pray. If you have an unchurched friend or family member then consider inviting them THIS WEEKEND and join me in praying for God to move in a special way.

Until He Comes,

What is Discover Broadview?

We know it can be difficult finding a church home. Every church is a little bit different and before joining a church it’s important that you understand what they’re all about. That’s why we created the Discover Broadview experience.

 

On the second Sunday of each month you’ll have an opportunity to hear from Pastor Wes on the mission, vision, and values of Broadview Baptist Church. Discover Broadview usually lasts about an hour and childcare can be provided if requested.

 

If you’re interested in learning more about Broadview or think you might be ready to join our church, then please consider registering!

Broadview West Block Party

May 22 | 5:00-6:30PM

Join us for some food, fun and games on May 22nd at Broadview West for a big “Block Party.” Broadview West is located on 6500 Military Dr. Broadview West is an extension of the ministry of Broadview Baptist Church and was planted in 2006 to make a positive impact on the neighborhood north of Dyess Air Force Base.

This Block Party will be an opportunity to connect with families in the neighborhood and also connect with one another as members of Broadview Church. If you’ve never visited Broadview West or you don’t know much about the ministry there then please join us for this event!

We also need help with volunteers to prep/serve food, set up/tear down and take care of various other logistics. Please contact Tiffany if you’d like to serve or if you have any questions.
