Wednesday Nights

This fall we will come back together on Wednesday evenings with a meal and opportunities for discipleship in our journey with God. One of these opportunities is a brand-new Chapel Talk series by our pastors and lay speakers. Parenting small groups will also be available with the goal of having time to grow alongside other parents as their children and youth attend their Wednesday night programs. Several small groups and Bible studies will resume meeting as well as musical ensemble practice. Special Wednesdays are set aside for Main Stage events where we invite the whole church to come together to celebrate and fellowship such as for our First Broad Street Has Talent Staff Talent Show.

Wednesday Night Revive Dinner (5:30 pm)

Wednesday Night Revive is an opportunity to participate in the life of First BroadStreet on most Wednesday nights from January to May and August to December. You are invited to revive your spirits as you gather around the table, enjoy a delicious meal, and fellowship with your church family. Following the dinner, adults may participate in a variety of activities, including Chapel Talks (in-depth studies of topics of interest), small group Bible studies, parenting discussions, and orchestra and choir practices. Children and youth activities also are a vital and vibrant part of Wednesday Night Revive. Several times a year, Main Stage Events are planned. On those nights, you will enjoy special entertainment, such as the ETSU Bluegrass Band, First Broad Street’s Got Talent Staff Talent Show, the annual children’s Christmas presentation, or a night of music and song featuring our church orchestra and choirs. We are hoping you will make Wednesday Night Revive a part of your church life. Reservations for dinner are required and may be made by calling 224-1502 by noon on the Tuesday preceding Wednesday Night Revive.

United Methodist Women

Holston Conference United Methodist Women:

More information about the UMW at FBS and Circle Meetings:

Who we are- The UMW has been in mission to women, children and youth across the world for more than 174 years. The entire program and organization of United Methodist Women focuses on mission.  Here at First Broad Street we have approximately 155 members who support a budget of $14,765.  Besides our portion which goes to our district, conference and national budgets, we contribute to Holston Home for Children, Camp Bays Mountain, and Child Center Teacher Scholarships.  We provide a lunch for our staff, sponsor breakfast for our high school seniors, and give a “gift to mission” in their honor and for college graduates.  UMW also provides a meal once a month for the Terrific Tuesdays program at Community UMC and encourages reading through the purchase of books for the reading program.   We contribute to Jackson Elementary School through the collection of “Boxtops for Education," and hats, scarves and gloves at Christmas.  Each month one of our 5 circles provides a dessert item for Safe House, Oasis and Hope Haven for Women, and we distribute the magazines collected to Holston Valley Hospital.   We have two special offerings in addition to our annual budget each year – Prayer & Self Denial in March and World Thank in November.  These offerings go to national for support of some of the many worldwide programs of United Methodist Women.

We encourage all women to become a member of one of our circles or just become a member at large to be part of this long-standing example of being a disciple of Jesus.


These ministries are for adults between the ages of 55 and 105.  As Baby Boomers retire, there will be an increasing number of senior adults in the United States.  The Senior Adult Ministries are designed to challenge and nurture this age group through a variety of intentional offerings, by, with, and for senior adults to help them “Love God, Grow Together, and Reach Out.”
