ABOUT US

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 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

A desert rat through and through, Anne grew up in sunny Arizona and received her Bachelors degree in Secondary Education from the University of Arizona.  After five years in the classroom, she pursued a Masters from Texas Tech University.  After several more years in the classroom, she completed her Master of Divinity at Perkins School of Theology (SMU) before being ordained.

Anne’s first church was in Elkhart, IN where she participated on community boards, co-directed a summer camp, and created an ecumenical youth group.  She discovered an appetite for Bible study.  Her passion for the outdoors and Christian action coalesced into summer outdoor worship services, Fifth Sunday service projects, and an ecumenical Thanksgiving service.  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, kayaking into the salt marshes, and hiking into the woods.


Anne has great hopes that Broadmoor Community Church, UCC will continue to expand its understanding of God’s grace and will reach ever further into its community.  One of Anne’s goals, during her free time, is to pump up her bicycle tires and spend some time on the open road exploring the beautiful environs of Colorado and discovering some really good Mexican food.

Rev. Marta Fioriti, Minister of Faith Formation.
At BCC, UCC since 2012

She is originally from the metro Washington DC area.   Her husband  Roger is an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister.  They have three children – Norah, Nicholas and Nina, and a two black labs named Sophie and Gracie.  Her life’s work in ministry has been spent creating environments and experiences for all people to grow in their faith.  Marta’s greatest joy is spending time with her family, whether it is around the dinner table or sitting on the front porch.  She loves to plan creative events with her children and spend time chatting with her girlfriends.

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’.


The resurgence of BCC’s music program and its continued growth 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 and serves as Minister of Adults and Worship at First United Methodist Church. They have two children – a daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren in Colorado Springs and a son in Loveland.  One of Lynn’s favorite pastimes is shopping for clothes with her granddaughter. She loves watching the Sci-Fi channel and is an avid Rockies fan. Healthy eating has recently become important to Lynn but the truth is that she secretly survives on chocolate truffles. If Lynn ever retires, she plans to travel the world.
