    BROAD HEARTS    BROAD MINDS    BROAD REACH

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.

What Is STRONG with Me?
The New Year typically leads us to questions about the direction of our lives.
“Where are we now?” “Where are we going?” This tends to open a great deal of reflection on which is a very healthy and transformative process. Fitbit, the company most credited for keeping track of our ever step, flooded the media with their campaign late last year entitled, “What is strong with me?” Clearly a play on the common phrase, “What is wrong with me?” this captivating campaign had people seeking answers to a more positive question about our strengths. Coming off a year like never before, what better way to launch a new year than looking for our strong points, not our wrong points? Join us at Broadway in January to consider that very thing in a sermon series simply titled, “What is Strong with Me?”
COVID Update @ Broadway:
 
As we walk as a community through another spike in COVID cases, we encourage your diligence when determining participation in events at the church. We love and long to remain open for in-person gatherings and intend to do so. We trust our greatest care of each other when together. If you are feeling ill in any way, it is best to choose our virtual options for worship until you are symptom free. Some are opting to worship virtually for a couple of weeks in hopes of the surge subsiding. We know that is the best choice for some. Everyone faces daily decisions about personal and community engagement having differing needs, limitations, and calculations of risk. Such is respected.
 
While we maintain in-person worship options, other programming, and service opportunities, please pay close attention to messages from your small groups, program areas, and/or Social Media posts from the church concerning specific events. Over the next two weeks, some events are adapting to remove food options, and others are cancelling if built around food and small group conversation in close proximity for an extended period of time. Stay alert and engaged for messages about any changes in those gatherings that you love and participate in regularly.
 
Our staff team remains vigilant in support of each other, keeping distance in the office, and meeting virtually at times, even when sitting in rooms next to one another to keep our team as healthy and available to serve as possible amidst this current surge. We celebrate our health-care workers and the gift of vaccinations, which have lowered the impact of illness at this time. What a gift! Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and support as we navigate this season together.

“What Is Strong with Me? – Mind”
1 Corinthians 12:1-11
Theme Verse:
“To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit of God.”
(1 Corinthians 12:7)
Concept: A science writer named Annie Murphy Paul has written a book called The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain. In it, she challenges us to tap the intelligence that exists beyond our brains – in our bodies, in our surroundings, and in our relationships. Our minds are broadened and strengthened by the connections all around us. In the Christian community, we are much smarter together – and more effective – than we ever could be on our own. What is strong with me? Perhaps the realization that my mind is far less limited than I think.

Join us LIVE, in-person at Daybreak Worship - 8 a.m. - in the Loft,
Traditional Worship - 9 a.m. - in the sanctuary,
Contemporary Worship - 11:15 a.m. - in the sanctuary,
or virtually in our livestream of worships at 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.
Viewing is possible on our YouTube Channel

 

Room at the Inn Image

Broadway Christian Church cares deeply for those in our community, who are unhoused. One way we act on this is by hosting Room at the Inn during January. You are invited to be part of our caring by volunteering for various positions both in the mornings and evenings.
* Food Crew and Shelter Prep - 5:30-6:30 p.m.
* Evening Hosts - 6-9:30 p.m.
* Dawn Patrol - Morning Hosts - 5:30-7:30 a.m.

WWJD IcthusWhat Would Jesus Do?

Pathways and the Loft Sunday School will be exploring themes related to poverty and homelessness as Broadway welcomes our unsheltered sisters and brothers at Room at the Inn throughout January. We'll examine the root causes of homelessness in our community and discuss how we can respond with charity, compassion, and justice. Lessons will blend learning, prayer, and dialogue as well as service projects to benefit Room at the Inn. We hope your children and teens will join us for a month of broadening hearts and reach.

Rides to Church Logo 3 (3)Carelink is delighted to announce
Rides to Church as its 12th Ministry. 
Broadway's Broad Hearts and Broad Reach have inspired us to provide rides for our elderly and homebound members to Sunday morning worships.

Please prayerfully consider how often you will give a ride to a Broadway friend the joy of being at church in person. You can request to pick up and old friend OR allow us to match you with a new friend. Each rider will be assigned multiple drivers to share the calendar and spread the love. Riders and drivers will be matched by choice of worships. You can sign-up as a driver or a rider using these links:
