Open & Affirming (ONA) Statement

The following statement was warmly received and approved by the congregation at the annual meeting on January 25th, 2004.

We celebrate the image of God in every person,

We rejoice in the sacredness of life, and

We affirm all relationships of support

that are founded on the principles of love and justice.

As Christians, we are many members,

but we are one body in Christ (Rom 12:4).

We accept Jesus’ call to love our neighbors as we love ourselves

 without being judgmental (Matt 7:1-2)

 nor disparaging of others (Luke 18:9-14).

We, the United Church of Broomfield, publicly proclaim ourselves as an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ. We pledge ourselves to creating a safe and loving community of faith in which ALL persons, regardless of creed, color, religion, gender, age, mental or physical health, disability, national origin, family configuration,  sexual orientation, cultural background or economic status can feel respected and cherished as part of Christ and the spirit of one Creator.

We affirm ALL persons in our congregation as full participants, and share significant celebrations and milestone events. As Christians, we affirm the dignity and worth of all people and we will advocate the rights of every human being. We join and accept the call for local churches to be inclusive and supportive of ALL persons.

May God bless and empower us in our journey toward faithfulness. We ask for God’s blessing and guidance as we commit to loving accepting our diversity with respect, compassion and understanding.

Our Church History

In late 1957, a worship group let by the Rev. Harold Rarick was formed. The first official services for the group was held in March 1958 with 40 people attending the service held in the parsonage on Midway Blvd. In May 1958 the United Church of Broomfield was formed. A new facility was constructed at our current location 825 Kohl St., and on April 2nd, 1961, 261 people attended the first worship service held in the new facility.

Our church’s bylaws were developed in 1963, and from that time we have maintained a focus on community and social issues. A Children’s Sermon became a regular part of our worship service in 1975. Youth Groups were formed in 1980, at which time we also sponsored a Cambodian family. The Kohl Street Kids before and after school program was started in 1985, and in 1990 the church started a Preschool program.

The new Education wing addition to the church facility was dedicated on November 2nd, 1988. We have a tradition of being served by loving and dedicated pastors, including:

Bradley Skinner 1960-1966

Wayne Reid 1966-1975

George Cushing 1975-1980

Jim Sherman 1980 interim pastor

Jon Almgren 1980-1996

Jack Wieczorek 1996-1998 interim pastor

Greg Garland 1998 to present

The United Church of Broomfield, from its beginnings, has had a strong link to the surrounding community. Our members have been key participants in the beginnings of FISH, Senior Resources, the community CROP Walk, and other related support activities. We were organized by families for families, while welcoming all to our worship and fellowship.
