Dine with Nine Kickoff Potluck

Wednesday, October 5 at 6:30 p.m. at BSPC

Dine with Nine is a great opportunity for Broad Streeters to get to know one another better. The ‘Nine’ is intentional - you do not have to be part of a couple for these monthly meals. Each solo/twosome of the group of 7-9 rotates hosting either at their home or at a local restaurant (each diner pays their own tab!). Groups of 7-9 will be defined before the kick-off potluck. The dinner schedule is determined by each group on October 5. Because dinner groups are small, everyone has a chance to share stories and ideas.

KOJO KAMAU - Connecting: People, Places, Community Opening Reception

Tuesday, October 11, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at BSPC

The exhibition is dedicated in memory of acclaimed photographer, Kojo Kamau co-founder of (ACE) Art for Community Expression and founding member of the Eastside Arts Initiative at the Broad Street Presbyterian Church. Kojo Kamau devoted a lifetime to photographing positive images of African American people and worked tirelessly to strengthen the bond between African American artists, history, and culture for the Columbus art community. The Eastside Arts Initiative is proud to collaborate with the Ohio History Connection and the James Preston Poindexter Foundation to preserve heritage and to broaden experiences that connect and engage the community. The Connecting People, Places and Community exhibition curated by Bettye Stull and co-curator Shelbi Toone invites the viewers to celebrate the 83rd birthday of our beloved friend, photographer visionary, mentor, and history maker. We honor Kojo Kamau for “transcending boundaries and time, capturing truth and integrity” and bridging the gap to a changing society.

Volunteer with God's Treasures

For many years, developmentally disabled adults have found a home at Broad Street as part of the God’s Treasures group. The group is returning to church on Sunday, September 18, and volunteers are needed to companion these warm and lively siblings in faith. On any given Sunday this work may include being friendly, sharing a sense of humor, encouraging socialization, preparing/serving coffee or tea, having conversation about faith, sing-alongs, assisting with small crafts, and giving guidance for safety. Some may need assistance with trips to or from the restroom.


Time commitment: 2 hours one Sunday a month, 10 am to 12 noon.
