There are many ways to connect at Broadmoor Community Church. During the year, we explore the ingredients of authentic community: practicing hospitality, learning spiritual practices, championing environmental restoration and providing a voice for hope and justice.
When you come to Broadmoor Community Church, you’ll discover that we are a people in various places along our spiritual journey. Through worship, fellowship and learning, we are able to realize opportunities for deepening our faith, serving our community, finding God in our daily lives and making lasting friendships.
Rest assured, if you visit Broadmoor Church, we’ll make you feel welcome, and we’ll also give you the space that you need to decide if we are a good fit for you.
Most people first find their way to us through Sunday morning worship. If you’re curious what that is like, you can find out on our worship page.
Singles and couples connect through individual conversation during the Community Hour and by becoming active in one of the many Adult Enrichment groups, while our children receive a warm welcome in our Church School and teens find a home in our Youth Fellowships.
Find yourself here! You’ll be amazed at how interesting, varied and life-giving the programs and groups are.

Frequently Asked Questions for New Vistors
At one point or another, each of us was new to Broadmoor Community Church! So we all have had questions about what worship at Broadmoor Community Church is like. In order to make your visit as enjoyable as possible, the following information may be helpful in understanding what to expect.
Where do we park?
We have three parking areas: a smaller circular drive (six spaces) at the front of the church, a mid-level parking area (40 spaces) and a lower parking area (100 spaces) lakeside. The entrances to the parking areas are off Lake Avenue.
When should we arrive?
You should plan on arriving 5-10 minutes prior to the start of the service times noted on the worship page of the website. When you arrive at the parking lot, walk toward any of the entrances. There will be a greeter who can direct you to the sanctuary. If you run late, there will be time to join the service when you arrive. Greeters will help you.
What should we wear?
As a congregation of many blended cultures, religions and ages, dress on a Sunday morning will vary. Our youth are more casual. Our adults tend to be in what is termed “business casual” – slacks/skirts, jackets (or not), some ties.
What does Children, Youth and Family Ministry look like at BCC?
We hope that you find a place to worship, serve and learn individually and as a whole family. Our goal is to provide an intentional environment that is both nurturing and accessible. We enthusiastically welcome children in the sanctuary during worship. Our value is life-long faith formation experiences for your whole family. Faith Formation is the language used because it seems to offer the most inclusive and accessible language to describe this ministry. It is an engaged process of learning and practice integrated throughout all aspects of congregational and daily life. Welcome Families!
What is a service like?
Our services typically run about an hour. There is a special children’s time when children are invited to the front of the sanctuary for a brief message. Then children leave for their programs. If your children want to stay with you for the first time, that’s great too!
After children leave for their programs, we have music, scripture reading, sermon, prayers, an offering and closing music. As a visitor, you are not expected to participate in our offering, unless you desire to do so.
Will I have a chance to meet people?
Each Sunday after the service there is a time for fellowship, refreshment and conversation, either in our Fellowship Hall or on our Deck near the sanctuary. This is a great time to meet people and get to know more about our community.
I need special assistance for my Sunday visit?
We are an accessible church. If you have questions about special needs for a family member, or handicapped access, please don’t hesitate to call the church office for assistance (719-473-1807). We will be happy to assist you in any way that we can.
If you are facing a personal struggle and would like to connect with a staff member on Sunday, please let one of the greeters or a staff member know that you’d like to speak with a minister after the service. Our staff members are available to speak with you and help you to find the right resources to assist you.
We look forward to having you join us on Sunday!
