Welcome to Broadway

Our mission is to enable persons to encounter the living God, as disclosed through Jesus Christ; to serve and celebrate God in an ever-changing society.
 

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.

The Christian Church - Disciples of Christ

The {Un}Series
 
We tend to rally around the concept of Sermon Series for our methodology of infusing our worshipping community with the Gospel. A series is a collection of several sermons that are connected by a common theme. Each sermon of the series guides the community down a new tributary of discovery while remaining connected and returning to the river that first started the adventure.
 
We are flipping the script with this collection of sermons landing under the title, “UN-Series.” While offered consecutively and under the same series name, the “UN” component is the rebellion of having no other explicit connection between each message. With so many special occasions during this season, each Sunday will carry a unique joy and meaning that is deserving of its own unique focus. As rebellious as this may seem, life is always connected, and we invite you to join the quest each week to discover the un-word that is lifted, tethering our Un-Series together week-to-week. So… enjoy the rebellion and join the quest for these eight weeks of discovery and celebration of baptisms, sacred holidays, some unique voices, and passion that will certainly inspire all who gather. Welcome to the UN-series.

“{UN} Series: No Scrubs”
Acts 16:9-15

Theme Verse: “And she prevailed upon us.” (Acts 16:15b)
Synopsis: It was ´90s R&B group, TLC that told us a “scrub,” also known as a “busta” was someone always talking about what he wanted but never doing anything about it. Long before T-Box, Left Eye, and Chilli brought this to the forefront of pop culture, cattle were paraded before a “Court of Bovine Justice” to determine whether a bull should be deemed a pure bred or a scrub. Scrub Bulls were discarded as worthless. In that same timeframe, “Historians estimate that more than 60,000 Americans were sterilized in the decades leading up to the Second World War, with many more persecuted under racist immigration laws and marriage restrictions.” It seems humans have long wanted to determine who is pure and who is not. The early church faced these same dilemmas as the movement found its way into Gentile (read Scrub) territory. What transpired was enlightening. Can it enlighten us still?

COVID Protocols @ Broadway
 
If we've learned anything these past two years, it's the way flexibility. Between surges and variants, we've ridden as best we can the COVID waves that have paused, cancelled, and/or shifted plans more often than we'd like. We celebrate that the most recent COVID surge is subsiding and fewer in our community are ill these days. Even so, we trust one another with our greatest compassion and care as we gather to continue life together as a faith family. 

 

If you are feeling ill in any way, it is best to choose our virtual options for worship until you are symptom free. We love that this option exists and give thanks for our tech team that makes it possible! Otherwise, our in-person experiences continue to grow and thrive, and we would love for you to join us. We honor and respect your calculation of risk as you partake in worship and other in-person programs and experiences at this time.
