The congregation of Broadway Christian Church proclaims that we are a place of welcome to all, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, marital status, physical or mental ability, political stance, socioeconomic background, criminal history, or theological perspective. We welcome all to this congregation, to Christ's table, and to service within the church. We recognize the faith, baptism and spiritual gifts of all Christians and those yearning to know Christ and celebrate that we are all children of God, striving to do God's will.

Broadway Christian Church is an open and affirming place for all God's children.

 
A Message from Mark
 
With the easing of city restrictions and new guidelines from the CDC, things will look different at Broadway this weekend! Given the weather, we're moving worship indoors.
 
This Sunday, both worship services will be held in the Sanctuary! Social distancing will not be regulated, though we ask you to self-distance as appropriate and respectful of others. While masks can be relaxed once you're seated in the sanctuary if you choose, we do ask participants to wear a mask when finding and leaving their seats and while singing tomorrow.
 
We'll continue to evaluate our protocols week to week. We're very excited to see you and celebrate God and community together in these less restrictive ways. Hope to see you tomorrow! And... be sure to stay after the first service or come early to the second service to enjoy some coffee, donuts, and fellowship with one another at The Holy 45!
 
  9 a.m. - Traditional Worship in Sanctuary
10 - 10:45 a.m. - The Holy 45 (Fellowship and Refreshments)
10:45 a.m. - Contemporary Worship in Sanctuary

Christopher Hitchens’ God Is Not Great is one of the bestselling books of this century. It’s subtitle? Religion Poisons Everything. We can cast off the book’s popularity as not big thing, but that doesn’t change the growing sense that many Christians – and believers in other faith traditions – are feeling overwhelmed, sidelined, and misunderstood. It’s more than a feeling.
 
The Barma Research Group suggests one-third of college-aged adults want nothing to do with religion, and 59% of Christian young adults drop out of church at some point in their twenties. Their latest study found that 29% of Protestant ministers have “seriously considered leaving ministry” since the turn of the year. For increasing millions of people in the wider culture, Christianity feels like a long list of rules that matter to someone else. New, and stronger, questions coming out of the pandemic have the world pondering… “What good is faith anyway?”
 
With a world that perceives Christians as irrelevant and extreme, we wonder about the future of the Church and how faith can be a force for good in society. Perhaps it begins with a good faith effort on our part to flip the script on the cultural perception.

Tripping
Romans 3:21-30
Synopsis: Most Christians can rattle off the little phrase, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” It’s been on enough bumper stickers that we seem to claim it. And it’s comforting when it comes to the sin that has tripped us up personally. It’s the sin of others that tend to make us forget this little passage. It’s no wonder, then, that 85% of non-Christians believe the Christians they know are hypocritical. The other 15% were just being polite. It is clear – when it comes to living our faith, trip we will. The question is, will we keep others down when they trip, or will we offer a hand as a fellow tripper ourselves?
Theme verse: “…all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23

Volunteers Needed

Sunday Morning Serving Opportunities
 
As we are slowly reentering in our “new normal” routines, it is also time to start the scheduling process for the upcoming Church Year, July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022. Please take a moment to look at the opportunities to serve on Sunday mornings and sign up for something you'd enjoy. We have serving opportunities for ushers, liturgists, musicians, tech assistants, welcomers, bus drivers, nursery assistants, All God’s Children and children’s leaders, and youth group leaders. All Sunday volunteers serve on a rotating schedule, and schedules can be adjusted to fit your needs. If you have questions, please contact Ingrid. It takes many hands to make Sunday mornings happen at Broadway!

Zoom @ Noon (2)
 

This drop-in style group began during the pandemic as a place for anyone to virtually connect and pray. Staff have taken turns facilitating each week with time for sharing, discussion, and prayer. As we return to in-person worship and ministry, the hope is for ZOOM at Noon to remain a virtual space for drop-in connection. The group meets for a bit less than an hour every Monday at noon and anyone can come at any time. It's a great opportunity for newcomers to come and meet people and ask questions.
