The gymnasium of Broadneck Evangelical Presbyterian Church was alive with children singing and dancing as they practiced for the dinner theater performance that will take place this Friday. Thirty-two children, ages 7 to 13, are participating in the Expressions of Joy program. Painted backdrops waiting for their appointed scene were draped over room dividers. Handcrafted puppets lay on tables and super hero capes were everywhere. Expressions of Joy is in its fourth year of holding a one-week camp that focuses on drama, dance, puppetry, acting and live music including drums and trumpets. The children learn choreography taught by Lindsay Shaner, who is in charge of the dance program at Anne Arundel County Parks and Recreation. Also assisting…

Families from far and wide visited Broadneck to browse the latest educational materials for homeschooling.
The Arundel Homeschool Support Group held a curriculum fair and workshops at Broadneck Evangelical Presbyterian Church this week to provide the homeschool community exactly what they need as far as current books, materials and resources. Vendors stocked their tables with everything a curious mind might use to grow. Walking down the aisles, one could easily find scientific models, text books, recreation books, curriculum outlines, art supplies and equipment. Such things are generally expected from an educationally-based fair, but sometimes large, furry, unexpected things can pop up as well. Louie, the fun-loving mascot for the Bowie Baysox, was also in attendance. He posed for pictures, gave out high-fives and had no qualms about sneaking …

Local church uses fun activity to raise funds for popular 5th Quarter program.
What better way to raise funds for a youth-centered program than to provide an afternoon of fun for local kids? This past Friday, students from elementary through high school age were offered an evening of laser tag games at the Broadneck Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Arnold. The event was a fundraiser for the church's popular "5th Quarter" program which offers Broadneck High School students a safe, positive place to spend time with friends after home football games in the fall. The events, held at Broadneck Park, provide an alternative to other parties and late night activities that include drug and alcohol use. We thank local photographer Christine Middleton for capturing the fun and excitement of the games.

Church offers safe atmosphere for trick or treating.
On Halloween evening, the parking lot of Broadneck Evangelical Presbyterian Church was filled with scary sites, but it wasn't only the trick-or-treaters wearing costumes. Church coordinators Kathy and Phil Dalby were tasked with planning Trunk or Treat, their family oriented alternative to traditional Halloween activities. The event involved trick or treating in the church parking lot, but volunteers also decorated the trunks of their vehicles and passed out treats to participating children. A dozen trunks were decorated for this event, many of them owned by members or attendees of Broadneck EP. Some decorations included traditional Halloween pumpkins, spider webs, and cauldrons while others went outside of the box. The Divens family of …
