A Church Rich with History

The Aspen Community Church building was built in 1890 and has been the home of a Presbyterian congregation, then a federated congregation in the 20’s and became a Methodist congregation in the 30’s.  It has served many generations of people in Aspen.

Recognizing the outstanding acoustics of the sanctuary, John Denver and the Dickens Carolers recorded their Christmas album here. For so many Aspen families, the Community Church has been a special place to worship, celebrate and grow in faith. Read about our history.

Outreach / Missions

At our August church council meeting we moved forward in supporting international missions.

We voted to put $275 in the budget for this year for our Kenya project. Up until this point all the project has been funded only by special appeals. This is a very small  portion of we have what we have raised to bring clean water, hygiene and education programs to Kenya, but it symbolize the importance church council places upon this ministry. You can learn more about our Kenya PEAK project under the Outreach tab on our web page (aspencommunitychurch.org).

We also voted to begin supporting Paul Jeffrey, a missionary of the United Methodist Church. Paul is a photojournalist who does stories about missions around the world. He has received many awards for his work and continues to bring stories of mission and hope to us all.  His bio is on our web page under missions.  The General Board of Global Ministries has a program that allows small churches to participate by sponsoring missionaries through pledging five dollars per member per year.  This means we pledged $275 for this year. You can find his bio under the Outreach / Missions

While small in amount these two actions symbolize our desire to be in mission around the world.  We do hope to be able to expand these amounts in the future.
