What to Expect



“Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We understand three main ways that God makes us into disciples at Braddock Street Church: worship, small groups, and service to those in need.”

Mission and Service

Braddock Street lives into the call to make disciples of Jesus Christ by being in relationship with our neighbors. From specific church missions, to organizations in the community, to opportunities to join in partner relationships around the globe, Braddock Street uses missions as a gateway to relationship building with all God’s children. Through these relationships with people in Third Spaces (or places that are outside of our circles of peers), we share God’s grace and love, inviting others into God’s embrace.



Our small groups provide a safe space to explore the depths of our faith, to ask questions, to support one another, and to grow in God's love through study. We invite you to journey with us through a small group opportunity, whether it be a group that meets for a particular season or one that meets year round.



As followers of Jesus, we show our love for God when we worship. Christians come together to worship on a regular basis because Jesus worshipped regularly (Luke 4:16). Our love for God is expressed when we pray, when we sing, and when we give. We experience the presence of God’s Holy Spirit, and we are changed as we hear God’s teaching for our lives.

Braddock Street Church offers two traditional worship services at 8:30 and 11:00 AM and one contemporary worship service at 9:45 AM, each Sunday.
We invite you to express your love for God and to be transformed by His Love during worship! Children are welcome in worship, and a nursery is also provided during all worship services.


Worship Services



Sundays 8:30 and 11:00 AM

Our 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM worship service is in the traditional style. The liturgy is printed in a bulletin. Hymns are sung from the hymnal and accompanied by our pipe organ. A choir or quartet will typically offer an anthem. Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month.



Sundays 9:45 AM

Our 9:45 AM worship service is in a more contemporary style. Worshipers come dressed as they are. The Braddock Street Praise Band leads us in songs that are taken primarily from the top 100 contemporary praise and worship songs. The band members will sometimes offer original selections or modern treatments of traditional hymns.



Parking Locations at Braddock Street UMC

In addition to street parking, our church has made the following parking lots available for your use.

Our MAIN PARKING lot is available all week long. However, do not use the parking spaces marked "reserved" Monday through Friday. We have rented these spaces to people who work downtown.

HOSPITALITY PARKING is available all week long. This lot must be accessed through the alley off of West Cork Street (between Braddock and Washington Streets). We ask that able bodied church members not use this during Sundays, so that it will be available for first time visitors, seniors, parents with small children, pregnant mothers, and so forth.

EXTRA SUNDAY PARKING- We have permission to use the parking lot at the corner of West Cork Street and Stewart Street from 8 am to 12:30 pm on Sunday mornings only.
