Finding Our Way: A Silent Retreat w/Paula D'Arcy

When the truth of Love breaks through into our every day lives, it's the beginning of a deeper journey. There is a growing sense of all that's beautiful and true. In the words of poet Jennifer Lynn Woodruff: “If we cannot be faithful in the hours/ Between the joy and underneath the pain.../ We will miss grace which comes so soft and slow.”

The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass

he concert is an annual concert, and part of the Festival Arts Series, taking place at 6pm, March 25th, Palm Sunday evening, as a beginning to Holy Week. This year we have chosen to perform The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass by esteemed American composer, Carol Barnett. This piece is very unique in that it combines the formal latin choral mass with the country sounds of bluegrass music. The piece is accompanied by upright bass, banjo, guitar, mandolin and fiddle. Ms. Barnett states "My highest hope is that listeners coming from one tradition— classical or bluegrass—and perhaps dubious about the other, might discover something new and wonderful in the combination, as I have.
Please join us March 25th at 6 pm,  Palm Sunday evening as we begin Holy Week with this truly special concert

One of the most authentic artists performing today, Ken custom designs every performance with brilliant improvisation and performs in a great variety of venues.

This Lent, join Pastor Peter on Wednesday from 6 – 7 pm in Room 200 for an introductory look at Luke Timothy Johnson’s “Among the Gentiles: Greco-Roman Religion and Christianity”. Cost $20.

There are two time options:  6 p.m. on Tuesdays or 10 a.m. Wednesdays.

Women's Retreat: “Stars at Night: When Darkness Unfolds as Light” | Saturday January 6

At some point in life, we all find ourselves lost and disillusioned, seeking to find our way.

Join us from 9 – 3:30 p.m. as we kick off the New Year sharing our stories, studying scriptures, and experiencing creative ways that we can rekindle our joy.  Together in community we will find hope and love holding us in the midst of difficult times.  We will be using the book, “Stars at Night: When Darkness Unfolds as Light” by Paula D’Arcy as our resource. A copy for you is included with your registration. Cost $30.

I am excited to announce our third annual Festival de Noël will take place on November 26th at 6pm. Over the past two years we have hosted over 1200 people, engaged over 400 volunteers and spread the joy of Christ to our Broadmoor Community.

As we continue to live into our mission of inviting, nurturing, equipping and serving I implore you to pray about the way in which you can help with this event. Whether that is a personal invitation to a neighbor, friend or local barista to attend this event, nurturing your God-given talents by participating in the Festival Choir, equipping those in your circle to volunteer or volunteering yourself, your involvement is what makes this event a success!

We will have a large portion of the concert that focuses on the joy of children during the holiday season. We will sing Santa Claus is Comin' to Town, Rudolph, Frosty, the Snowman all with full choir and orchestra. During a special Children's Moment we will have a fully orchestrated reading of The Night Before Christmas. These secular, joyful songs will be paired with some of the season's most iconic sacred pieces helping us usher in the season.
