OUR VISION

Broadmoor Community Church 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 opportunities to grow deeper in our relationship with God and Jesus, through worship, education, fellowship, missions and justice work. 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 MINISTRY TEAM

Ms. Liz Shelton, Faith Formation Coordinator

At BCC, UCC since August, 2020

Liz grew up in Ohio where she attended The Ohio State University and the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, earning her Bachelors and Masters degrees in violin performance. She has been a member of numerous ensembles, including the Toledo Symphony Orchestra and the Colorado Springs Philharmonic.


The daughter of a minister, Liz has always had a deep interest in theology and spirituality. She is currently following a call to attend seminary, enrolled as a second-year Master of Divinity student at Iliff School of Theology in Denver. 


Liz generally enjoys the “controlled chaos” of her busy household, where she and her partner Jason mostly manage the schedules of their four active teenagers, try to remember to walk their two dogs, and frequently forget to feed their two cats.


Liz has a heart for youth ministry, and having conversations about faith with young people. She is honored to join the staff at BCC.


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.  

Rev. Lynn Hurst, Minister of Music
At BCC, UCC since 2004

A southern belle, Lynn grew up in southern Arkansas and received her Bachelor of Music from the University of Oklahoma, then a Master of Church Music from the Scarritt Graduate School in Nashville, Tennessee. She completed seminary work at Vanderbilt before being ordained as a United Methodist minister.

 

Lynn is an imaginative and gifted musician and author. Her books ‘Changing Your Tune: A Musician’s Handbook for Creating Contemporary Worship’ and ‘Praise Now!’ are published by Abingdon Press and she was a contributing author of ‘Church Music for Children’ and ‘52 Children’s Choir Activities’.

 

BCC’s music program is the result of Lynn’s creativity, enthusiasm and abounding energy. Lynn helps people of all ages discover God’s gift of music. Her innovative Music Intern program is just one example of her success. Lynn’s husband, Jerry, is also ordained. If Lynn ever retires, she plans to travel the world.
