Annual report 2017 final

  1. 1. Moderator’s Report Submitted by Steve Bailey, 2016-2017 Moderator “It has been my blessing and privilege to serve you as Moderator over the past year.” Your Executive Council listened to God’s spirit of love and desire for community, and appointed in the fall of 2015 three outstanding Committees to facilitate our transition from Jim Chapman to a then-unknown new Senior Pastor. We will be forever grateful for the careful and thorough work of the Profile Creation Committee for drafting a Church Profile based upon reliable and comprehensive congregational data garnered from Dr. Jim Pence’s comprehensive and professional CAT Survey. This year, your Search Committee carried on that good work, utilizing the Church Profile in sifting through scores of candidates in a remarkable spirit of service and collaboration. These two committees were comprised of smart and dedicated people who committed hundreds of hours to serving our congregation, but those commendable human efforts do not fully account for the process and ultimate results of such efforts. These fine and faithful people humbly (and at times, not so humbly!) bent their collective ear to the whispering of God’s loving spirit, and, thereby enriched and strengthened our beautiful congregation of precious souls. We gratefully acknowledge these fine servants, and we give thanks to God’s glorious love in the transition that took place this year! Which brings me to Reverend Anne Cubbage. We found her, she found us, and the Holy Spirit was right in the middle of it all. Since she came to us five months ago, I have been deeply impressed to observe and work with Anne. She is a dedicated and authentic person who has undertaken her call with energy, strength and a servant’s heart. A true pastor. Her cute little red car is in the church parking lot early in the morning, and she pours her considerable love and intelligence into a wide array of tasks, projects and meetings with a level of energy that is truly remarkable. She has undertaken a conscientious and thorough effort to reach out to all four corners of our congregation. She has attended scores of meetings with your Boards and committees She is undertaking a clear eyed review of the church’s administrative structure. She has collaboratively worked with Lynn and Marta and the cohesion within our Pastoral Staff has been a blessing to behold. And Lynn and Marta ain’t chopped liver either! Our Music and Faith Formation Ministries are flourishing. The excellence of the Worship Services remains at the highest level. Your Executive Council has collaboratively worked this year to advance BCC’s missions. We are committed to financial accountability and sustainability. We continue to work on improving church government and the constitution of your Boards and Committees. In that regard, we are grateful for Dean Quaranta’s diligent work in the areas of Board and Committee Appointments and communications among and between them. This report would be many pages long if I were to extol the fine qualities of each of your Executive Council’s members, so those accolades must await another time. Simply put, it has been an honor and pleasure to work with each and every one of them. The new members of the Boards and Committees have dedicated themselves to serving you and the broader missions of BCC. I I am confident that your combined leadership group will, with your energy, help move our church forward in expressing God’s love both within our congregation and outside our church’s walls.
  2. 2. On a personal note, serving on the Executive Council over the past five years has allowed me to connect with our church in ways that would have been impossible without such service. I have been loved and nurtured in the process. My heart is grateful for all of you. God’s blessing all over your sweet selves,
  3. 3. Pastor’s Report The old adage is that ‘God Loves Us Just As We Are—But Too Much To Let Us ​Stay That Way’. Although it has become cliché, our faith narrative bears this out. We as a people of faith are deeply rooted in history, intensely connected to a God who is desirous of intimate loving relationships with all the creatures of this earth; and we are called out of our places of comfort, to face the unknown with boldness and courage. Almost 5000 years ago, a man named Abram was told to “​Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you​.” (Genesis 12) Two millennia ago, Jesus charged his disciples with boldness and courage as they left all that they had previously known in order to ​“​ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons​.” And what boldness and courage were exhibited by our pilgrim ancestors as they chose to leave the Old World: everything they had come to know, many of their friends and some of their revered leaders including the Rev. John Robinson who charged them to keep open minds, to listen for God’s stillspeaking voice in even some of the most surprising packages. His well-known words to them as they sailed towards the New World were, ​“I am verily persuaded the Lord hath more truth yet to break forth out of His Holy Word.” It is always time to ask the question, “​Does God have yet more truth to break forth?​” To examine truth in this way will require us to have a great singleness of mind, to move with boldness and courage. Are we willing to be the church that is ever moving on in the light of God? Are we willing for God to fill us with the heart and mind of our faithful and righteous ancestors? What difference would it make to the community if Broadmoor UCC closed its doors as a religious institution? What makes our viability important? If we are bold and faithful, what is it that God has called us to do and be in this time and in this place of our history? John Wesley, founder of Methodism said, “​Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can​.” Are we living out our life as a church with this purpose in mind? Broadmoor UCC has a strong history of doing exactly this. This is one of the main reasons Tammie and I chose you out of all the churches in the UCC. You understand that there is a special difference between service organizations, missions,. . . and church--You are a church that recognizes that its relationship with the community begins in its relationship with God—a relationship exemplified as the ‘body of Christ’. ​We chose you because you are a church that understands that as a people of faith we are called out of our places of comfort to face the unknown with boldness and with courage. My vision for Broadmoor UCC is that we will be the church that shares God’s love in a vital and real way with ALL of our community.
  4. 4. I know that in order to bring this vision into focus we should increase our knowledge through study & conversation, grow in our prayer and commitment of time and monetary resources, and learn to give words to our understanding of God’s love. In order to bring this vision into focus (to offer God’s love notes to our community) we could: ● Start a satellite church (faith & life conversation) in a non-threatening, non-traditional space (i.e. soccer field, coffee shop, Cheyenne Mountain Park) ● Become a real presence as mentors in the local elementary school ● Offer a parents night out for the community once a month ● Create an FBI (fixers, builders, and instructors) group to assist people in need, both inside and outside the Broadmoor family ● Purchase a church van and provide transportation for the seniors in our immediate neighborhood. ● Become more visible and participatory in the digital community. I have high hopes and great expectations for us as a church! I am sure that when we look at the abundance of God’s gifts and imagine what new land God is calling us to move into, that God has more light and truth to break forth . . . right here in Colorado Springs, right now at Broadmoor UCC. Let us be bold and faithful as we move forward into the future, sharing God’s light and truth in bold and courageous ways! Grace & Peace, Pastor Anne

Anne Cubbage Executive Committee Liaison: Dean Quaranta Since January, there have been six new members. With Anne Cubbage as our new minister we have had many visitors.

  15. 15. Building and Grounds Committee Presented by Scott Dorff, chair The Building and Grounds (B&G) Committee is tasked with maintaining and enhancing the church facility and its grounds. BCC is blessed with a beautiful and spacious site overlooking Cheyenne Mountain and Big Stratton Reservoir. The Church’s design is timeless, natural and fits harmoniously with the site. The committee’s focus for the past year centered on the installation of new lights and two large scale fans in the sanctuary. The lighting system needed replacement as it was close to failing, used excessive amounts of power, and produced a significant amount of residual heat. The heat produced by the lights exacerbated a further problem of heat retention in the sanctuary during the summer months. With improvements in LED lighting over the past decade as well as the efficient, aesthetically pleasing design of recent fan technology, the committee was approved to move forward with this multi-phase project. Substantial savings in power consumption is expected from the new lighting system and the fans should bring significant relief to the heat of the summer. The other important event of the year took place on April 1​st​ when BCC became a victim of arson. The fire was started just outside the kitchen, causing extensive damage to the exterior of the building, additional damage to the kitchen area and smoke damage through out Otto Hall. Total damage amounted to over $200, 000. At the time of this report, work was underway to finish repairs by sometime in July 2017. We, the committee members – Andy Lewis, Gene Sandoval, John Davis, Dave Klunder, Don Hare and Scott Dorff -- look forward to another great year at this beautiful, multi-use building.
  16. 16. Memorial Gifts Committee Submitted by Kay Klunder, Chair The Memorial Gifts Committee administers a fund that provides members and friends of Broadmoor Community Church, UCC an opportunity to make lasting gifts to the church in memory of loved ones. The committee consists of five individuals; a chairperson appointed by the Executive Council, and persons representing the Board of Resource Management, Women’s Fellowship, Meditation Glen and Arts Committee. This past year the Memorial Gifts committee purchased the new large fans in the sanctuary and a new 75 gallon water heater to supply hot water to the Otto Hall kitchen and the bathroom downstairs as well as other locations. We also made a donation to Urban Peaks at the request of a family member and purchased a printer for office use to make CDs of services.

  18. 18. Women’s Fellowship submitted by Ginny Rosinski The Women’s Fellowship group is open to any women of the Church and their friends and meets from September through May. We hoped that we would have programs that would attract other women in the Church to attend our programs but this was not as successful as we had hoped. In September, we had a good group for lunch​ ​at the Golden Bee. In October, Alice Beaton’s daughter, Gail Beaton, returned to our group and did an excellent job portraying Sara Platt Decker, who was involved with women's clubs and their legacy (public libraries, national & state parks, hospitals, etc.). In early November we were involved with a special show given by the Colorado Springs Chapter of Ikebana for our group and for the public. The flower arrangements were certainly beautiful!! At our regular meeting in November, we showed the movie ‘The Gods Must Be Crazy’ which is about “Simplicity” (the topic of Jim Chapman’s sermons that month). In January we had a White Elephant Swap, which is always fun. We were honored that Pastor Anne and Tammie joined us for this event. In February, we decided to learn about Qigong and had Connie Kreider tell us all about ‘Wisdom Healing Qigong’​. ​In March, Lori Orwig, from Silver Key, enlightened us on what to watch for to avoid ‘Senior Fraud’. In April, Mary Sue Wildman gave us a very interesting tour of the Broadmoor, where we learned about the history of the hotel and its founders. Afterwards, we had lunch at Coal Mine Dragon. We finished our program year with lunch at Old Chicago. We helped with several funeral receptions this year for long time members of Women’s Fellowship. We enjoy doing what we can for women’s and children’s groups in town. For TESSA (which serves victims of domestic violence and sexual assault): we filled 48 Halloween treat bags for the adults & children they serve; we made 30 Christmas cards for their Christmas Shoppe; we filled 48 Christmas treat bags for adults and 48 Christmas treat bags for children; we filled 36 Valentine treat bags for adults and 36 Valentine treat bags for children. We thank YOU for donating the 215 calendars that we provided to TESSA. We bought 1008 filled Easter eggs for the children of our Church to hunt for on Easter morning. We gave books to the students graduating from Meadows Park Pre-School. And finally, we bought choir robes the youth choir. We continued to make recycled greeting cards for sale near the Fireside Room. Ginny Rosinski leads these workshops. We do ​thank the congregation​ for their generous donations of card fronts and for buying cards so that we have money to buy the supplies for the various projects that we do for TESSA, Meadows Park Pre-school and our Church.
