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.

small thin banner Right Here, Right Now

"Right here, right now, there is no other place I want to be."  Those were the inspired lyrics of Mike Edwards, front man of the band, Jesus Jones. The single alone sold a million copies, and the song was played on collegiate radio stations more than any other song in 1991. What does that song have to do with Advent? Well, that's up to you. Every entry point of our lives - whether a song, a story, an experience, or even a simple hope - opens the chance to see through the lens of expectant faith. Maybe, "Right here, right now" sparks the eggnog nostaligia of Christmastime. Maybe it speaks to the angst of this season, a prolonged waiting-out of a pandemic and hopes of powering through another COVID Christmas. Maybe the line of the song that says, "I was alive and I waited for this... watching the world wake up from history," sparks our longing for the justice baby Jesus brought along with him thousands of years ago. 

Where are you right now, right now? Where is your spirit? Join us at Broadway Christian Church in the season of Advent to come alive to a faith that mines the heart and surveys the landscape of society and says, "Right here, right now, there is no other place I want to be."

Right Here, Right Now: Peace
Luke 1:68-79

Theme Verse:In the shadow of death, guide our feet into the path of peace.”
(Luke 1:79) 

 
Concept: Zachariah was a priest; a man of faith and husband to Elizabeth. He worked his job to the best of his ability, served on the church board and probably enjoyed tailgate games with his neighbors. As hard as it was, Zachariah made peace that he and Elizabeth would not conceive a child. But an angel shows up unannounced and tells him in their late years, “Your baby boy is on the way.” Zachariah asks, “Right here? Right now? Do you expect me to believe this?” The angel says, “Sounds like you need some focused time to think about it,” and Zach goes mute – for months. What do you do when life is shut down, forcing you to use other senses, to listen more than speak, to rely on other’s voices more than your own? Can you actually find peace? Zach got clear. And when he speaks again… well, he knows something special is in front of him; right here, right now.

“Right Here, Right Now” lyric:I was alive, and I waited for this.”

Shifting COVID Protocols @ Broadway
 
With vaccinations now available and underway for many of our youngest Disciples, boosters available to more adults, stronger treatment options for those infected, and moderate transmission rates in Boone County, our COVID protocols at Broadway will be shifting at year's end.
 
While we have not had a mask mandate in place, our Mask Ask has been in place until wider vaccination options were available. Getting through the final few weeks of 2021 with the ask will allow students who choose to get fully vaccinated the time to do so. We know some have named struggles with masking for various reasons, and such has been honored as well. There is no judgment or policing on this matter. We want all to feel welcome and are doing our best to meet the needs of all.
 
Come the New Year, we return to the position: "We honor your caution. We respect your choice," knowing some will be elated to be mask free while others may always need to choose that protection for themselves or others. We also trust that when people are not feeling well, they discern to stay home and participate in worship virtually. Life at Broadway is swelling with momentum as old friends return and new friends join the effort. We are gearing up for a beautiful Advent season at Broadway. Come join us and help us build momentum as we lean into 2022 with expectant hope!
