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

"Wide Open Spaces : Does It Matter WWJD if We Can't Do It?"
John 14:12-14

 

Theme Verse: “The one who believes in me will do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these.” (John 14:12)

Concept:  It was Apple who first put out a thank you note, advertising their cutting edge technology. “Here’s to the crazy ones,” they said. “The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.” The ad goes on and on. At the end it says, “We make tools for these kinds of people. Where some people see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.”  

Most of us just need someone to believe in us. Another’s confidence often builds our courage, and we risk failure because, by golly, we just might pull it off. Jesus knew this and had the gumption to say to a band of misfits, who were surely intimidated by what was ahead of them, “You got this. You’ll not only do what I’m doing… you’ll do even greater things!

Could it be? Could you? Could I? Could our church? What would Jesus say? “Here’s to the crazy ones…”

Song: “Change the World" - Eric Clapton

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, please share your responses with the Vision Team in one of several ways. You can mail them to the church office (2601 W, Broadway; 65203), or email to either Ingrid Luckenbill, church administrator, at iluckenbill@broadwaychristian.net or to Deb Ward, church board chair, at warddh@missouri.edu. Your input is vital to the Vision 2030 process.
