We support a variety of ministries that serve our community and our world through gifts of time, expertise, money, and prayer. Here are just a few of the many ministries we are involved in:
My Brother’s Pantry, located in Arnold on College Parkway, provides well-balanced, non-perishable food every month to those on the Broadneck Peninsula who need a little extra help making ends meet. Volunteers from area congregations collect donations, shelve food, pack and distribute food boxes. Broadneck collects food for My Brother’s Pantry all through the year and takes its turn with the other Broadneck Peninsula churches one or two months each year managing all bagging and delivering food for approximately 150 local families. Our next month for food packing, distribution and delivery will be September 2017.
SPAN (Serving People Across Neighborhoods) is an ecumenical non-profit organization that helps area families in need of emergency assistance. Last year, a total of 2,475 families received financial and food assistance through the work of SPAN, which is supported by 14 partner churches, including Broadneck Baptist.
Winter Relief: For 20 years, this program has provided emergency shelter in the winter months for those experiencing homelessness in Anne Arundel County, housing them in churches where they can receive hot meals and a place to sleep out of the cold. As the program has expanded into the Annapolis area, Broadneck has co-hosted a week of Winter Relief each of the past four years with Cape St. Claire United Methodist, making space in our facilities to provide hospitality and care to about 25 men and women. Our next week to host will be January 15-22, 2018. To learn more about the program, check out Arundel House of Hope.
Intergenerational West Virginia Mission Trip: For the last 20 years, Broadneck has joined with other churches spending a week in the summer in the West Virginia town of Belington, where we join together with community members to do home repair and host a Music and Arts Camp. The unique part of this trip is that entire families participate, with people on the trip ranging from toddlers to senior adults! To learn more about the trip, read this article in the Alliance of Baptists’ magazine. To learn more about Belington, visit Belington's website. Our 2017 trip will be July 31-August 5. Here is a brief glimpse from our 2015 trip!
Alliance of Baptists’ Bridges of Hope Offering: As a founding church of the Alliance of Baptists, Broadneck supports many ministries around the country and world (including JourneyPartners) supported through the annual Bridges of Hope Offering. Learn more about the amazing ministries the Alliance supports visit Alliance of Baptist ministries.

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 weekly e-newsletter. Consider how you might want to get involved!
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.
