STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe in God, the Eternal Spirit, who is made known to us in Jesus our brother,

and to whose deeds we testify:
God calls the worlds into being, creates humankind in the divine image,
and sets before us the ways of life and death.
God seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.....

God promises to all who trust in the gospel, forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, 

courage in the struggle for justice and peace, the presence of the Holy Spirit in trial and rejoicing,

and eternal life in that kingdom which has no end.

OUR VISION

Broadmoor Community Church, UCC is a progressive Christian community of the United Church of Christ, committed to making a difference in our city and our world through worship, service, faith formation, fellowship and social justice. We welcome all people regardless of religious background, education, race, sexual orientation, family make-up, economic status or nationality. As a congregation of the United Church of Christ, we are committed to following Jesus as we serve our community and our world. Our focus is to follow Jesus and reach out to others, passionately engaging in acts of service, love, and mercy.  At BCC we take our faith in a loving God seriously and joyfully. Together we seek to be a community of faith where people are transformed by the Spirit of God. 


WHAT WE BELIEVE

Broadmoor Community Church, UCC strives to be a warm, welcoming, and diverse congregation. With prayer and scripture as our foundation, we provide multiple opportunities to grow deeper in our relationship with God and Jesus, through worship, education, fellowship, missions and justice work. Our church is clean, bright and fully functional for adults, children and the greater community.

We share with other United Church of Christ (UCC) congregations an extravagantly inclusive faith perspective where every person is part of God’s beloved people. Our open communion table, where all are welcome, demonstrates our belief in this perspective.

Jesus didn’t draw a line between people who are in and people who are out, and neither do we. We believe that God loves everyone, just as they are, and as they are becoming. If that kind of welcome describes you, we hope you will feel right at home at Broadmoor Community Church, UCC...


OUR TEAM


Rev. Anne Cubbage, Lead Pastor
At BCC, UCC since January, 2017

Anne grew up in sunny Arizona and received her Bachelors degree in Secondary Education from the University of Arizona.  After 17years in the classroom and urgings of the Spirit, she pursued a Master of Divinity at Perkins School of Theology (SMU) before being ordained.

 

Anne’s first church was in Elkhart, IN where she was in ministry with an amazing group of people.  Her most recent pastorate was on idyllic Cape Cod.  While there she helped celebrate the church’s 375th anniversary and was able to spend much time exploring our nation’s history.

 

Anne is pleased to be a part of Broadmoor Community Church, UCC as it continues to expand its understanding of God’s grace by reaching ever further into its community to share the good news of God's inclusive love.
