BCC's Statement to End Systemic Racism


     When Black and Brown lives are systemically devalued by society, our outrage justifiably insists that attention be focused on Black and Brown lives.  When a church claims boldly "Black Lives Matter" at this moment, it chooses to show up intentionally against all given societal values of supremacy and superiority or common-sense complacency. By insisting on the intrinsic worth of all human beings, Jesus models for us how God loves justly, and how his disciples can love publicly in a world of inequality. We live out the love of God justly by publicly saying #BlackLivesMatter.

     We need to continue to act with courage and commitment to end racial inequality. We are challenged to examine the ways racism is manifested within ourselves, our community, and confront it. We actively listen, challenge white fragility, and seek equality for all people. We stand in solidarity with the members of our community who routinely feel the weight of oppression, systemic racism, racial violence, and call for an equal justice system.

At Broadmoor Community Church, UCC, we believe in effecting change through hands-on community involvement.

We seek opportunities to make the world a better place by reaching out. 

 

As a progressive Christian community, we are called to love our neighbors in ways that demonstrate the good news of the gospel.  Our Board of Missions has entered into a number of relationships with our neighboring ministry communities.  These relations are two-fold: 

 

  • to support those agencies providing emergency food and other resources

  • to assist our partner communities in identifying specific needs and creating sustainable solutions to what have been long-term problems.

 

 

Working in partnership with those we serve, we enter into a sacred relationship of compassion, justice, peace, learning and Divine humility. Read below about our non-profit partners.

As a member church of the United Church of Christ, BCC knows that it can and does change lives through our contributions to Our Church's Wider Mission.  OCWM allows local congregations to live into its covenant by funding the ministries of our Rocky Mountain Conference, as well as the nation-wide ministries of the United Church of Christ.

  • Every UCC congregation is in partnership with the whole United Church of Christ when members contribute to OCWM.

  • Every UCC congregation that gives to OCWM touches lives around the world in the name of Jesus

  • Each UCC congregation is urged to be a part of God's mission beyond the local community by contributing to OCWM.

  • With each church's participation, OCWM can come closer to fulfilling God's mission and every congregation can come closer to being all that God intends it to be.
