Broadway Christian Church
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.

To Our Beloved Community, wondering and seeking...
 
We miss being together as we once were for worship and service. We are discovering, however, what we subconsciously already knew: we're still the Church whether inside or outside of the brick-and-mortar building.
 
Virtual worship continues each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. via our YouTube channel. Friends from our own neighborhood to friends around the world are tuning in to celebrate with us week after week! We discovered the value of our beautiful Outdoor Worship Area as we began, and continue, one in-person worship service in that space every Sunday at 9 a.m. (See more info below).
 
Sunday School classes, small groups, youth, children, and adults alike, are meeting via ZOOM, continuing to share in fellowship, study, and prayer. Our Mission and Outreach Ministry is hosting opportunities to participate in a Habitat for Humanity home-build this summer. Meals continue to be provided for the hungry and our Vision Team continues their efforts to press forward with plans for the Vision that will carry us into the next chapter of our life together. It's a beautiful thing to experience authentic community in ongoing ways. This is what it means to be Church!
 
Columbia’s Health Department and Broadway’s own COVID Advisory Team continue to guide us through our Comeback from COVID. We will keep you updated regularly as our opportunities grow and change. Keep showing up wherever you can, however you can, with whatever you can to help our church family, the city of Columbia, and even our global neighbors find a way through this challenging season. With God's help, we can make a great difference together!  
 
Love,
The Broadway Staff Team

It's All About Soul: Restoration

Psalm 23
Soul Song: "Deeper Shade of Soul" - Urban Dance Squad

Restoring our souls suggests that it doesn’t run on full all times. The soul grows weary. It empties. Like our vehicles, trusting your gasoline dial can become a bit of a crap shoot. How long can your soul run on fumes? How does your soul need to be restored?
 
“He restores my soul.” – Psalm 23:3

Join us in worship
9 a.m., Sundays, in our outdoor worship area,
or  
online at 10:30 a.m., Sundays at

The Vision 2030 Conversation Continues...
 What Comes Next, Broadway?
Did Broadway's charter members have a picture of what this tiny church on the west edge of Columbia would grow to be in 2020?  It is certain that the foundation they built in 1958 has shaped us today.  How will we, building on that firm foundation, shape Broadway in the years to come?
Broadway Vision Team has been working via Zoom to begin to shape the conversation as we prepare for our next decade as a community of fiath.  The next step in the process is to hear from you.  The Vision Team has developed a list of questions that we are asked to consider.  Following your consideration, there will be two opportunities to join in a Zoom discussion with other Broadway members and the Vision Team:
  • Sunday, August 16 at 2 PM, or
  • Thursday, August 20, at 6:30 PM.

  Please RSVP to Ingrid via email  or at 445.5312 to receive login information for the meeting. If you don't have access to a webcam, you can also phone in to join the conversation.
