Common Ground Community

Following Jesus Christ’s example, Common Ground Community, Inc., is committed to making a difference in Cedar Grove through compassionate outreach, building relationships, and acceptance of all people. We serve and build lasting relationships with our neighbors in Cedar Grove who may be hungry or lacking in other basic needs. We are primarily volunteer driven with volunteers from many churches and businesses from all over the Shreveport-Bossier-Benton region.

Broadmoor members serve at Common Ground every Wednesday in their clothing closet. For more information about serving contact Diane Valentine at 318.617.7896.

Common Ground also needs our help financially. If you are able, please contribute $15, $25, or $50 by making a check out to Broadmoor Methodist with the memo Common Ground and then we will send one check to Common Ground at the end of this month. Thank you so much for supporting such a life transforming ministry.

Common Ground Community

Common Ground is local organization putting "feet to faith" in the Cedar Grove neighborhood of Shreveport. They strive to provide a connecting space, a place of reconciliation for all, with an inclusive spirit that will serve to create transformative relationships. They host children's programs, mentor young people, serve a community meal, provide food and clothing, and garden together.
Broadmoor UMC is beginning a relationship with Common Ground, and we want you to be a part of it! We are specifically starting to serve at their closet that provides clothing for men, women, and children in need. We are looking to form a "volunteer staff" to help organize and sort their clothing donation closet weekly on Wednesday mornings from 7:30-9:30. Even if you can only work once a month, we would love to have you on the team! If you are interested in helping, simply show up at the Common Ground Community Center, located at 6806 Southern (corner of Southern and 68th Street). Contact (text) Diane Valentine at 617-7896 for more information!

allendale garden of hope and love

We are looking for a team of gardeners to help with the Allendale Garden of Love and Hope, where several members served on BUMC Service Day. We have dates for the Broadmoor team to work in the garden through the fall. Join us from 7:30-9:30 a.m. on Saturdays (Dates TBA). We will meet in the garden, located on the corner of the 1500 block of Buena Vista and N. Allen. Contact project coordinator Diane Valentine at 617-7896 for more information.

GABRIEL’S CLOSET

In partnership with the Catholic Charities of Shreveport, Broadmoor collects infant, children and family goods such as diapers, clothing, baby food, baby items, books, furniture – anything for young children and their mothers. These items are sent to their “shop,” where low-income new mothers can access any supplies that they may need.  Donations should be placed in the wooden baby bed in the Anderson Hall foyer.  // ccshpt.org/closet.html

 

HIGHLAND BLESSING DINNER

On the 4th Thursday of every month from 5-7 pm, a family style meal is served at the Highland Center to anyone who wants or needs a community meal.  Volunteers are needed to serve food or to be a table host.  // highlandcenter.org

 

KIDS HOPE USA

A mentoring program at Arthur Circle Elementary that helps build lasting relationships that make a difference in the life of an at-risk child.  You can be a weekly mentor, prayer partner, or teacher encourager.  This mission project takes place during the public school year, from August to May.  // www.kidshopeusa.org

 

LAYETTE MINISTRY

Every other month the Layette Ministry team purchases items for 40 layettes, which are washed before they are packaged and delivered to LSU Medical Center for newborns and their young mothers.

 

MANNA BAGS

Provided by various small groups in the church, these bags contain a small but balanced meal and a one-day Sportran bus pass and are distributed to those who visit the church seeking food or transportation.  We often need help collecting food items and assembling new bags.

 

RED BAGS

In our Red Bag Ministry, Broadmoor provides reusable grocery bags with a shopping list of needed food items for those who are hungry. We encourage people to fill the bags with items and bring them to church on the first Sunday of each month. Bags should be placed in the Fellowship Area. The bags are then donated to the Noel UMC Food Pantry! This is a great way to love our neighbors!   We are often alerted of “most needed” items on a monthly basis, and a list of these special items is made available to the congregation through The Vision Newsletter and the weekly eNews.

 

SOUPER SATURDAY

Prepare bag lunches to be delivered, along with soup, to Meals on Wheels recipients and members of the Broadmoor congregation when it meets a need.  Recipients birthdays are also celebrated on a monthly basis with a small gift and card.  Deliveries happen on the last Saturday of each month, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  // www.caddocouncilonaging.org

MILITARY APPRECIATION PACKAGES

Items are donated and military appreciation packets are assembled and sent to those serving in our military each June.

 

RUSSIA INITIATIVE

Each summer and winter, Broadmoor offers a mission trip to its sister church in Ekaterinburg, Russia where we lead Vacation Bible School, Bible studies, work in orphanages, prepare food baskets for the elderly, and make repairs to the church building.
