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.

Welcome to Aspen Community Church

A Progressive Congregation
with a commitment to community and
outreach, a love of music, learning,
and traditional worship.


General Conference News

The United Methodist Church took a huge step backward at a specially called General Conference in February of this year. It reaffirmed and strengthened anti-gay language in our rule book which we call the Discipline. At Aspen Community Church, we categorically reject what was done. Out Mountain Sky Conference also is pushing back so that the fundamentalists do not take over our denomination. If you want to see how our annual conference leaders responded to the General Conference, you can watch this video of their “summit” from Hope UMC.

There will be much to do over the next months as Aspen Community Church reaffirms our commitment to be inclusive of all people. We reject any discrimination based on sexual orientation or any other of the many ways people are categorized and then pushed to the margins of our society. We welcome all people to join in our fellowship that attempts to display the love of all God’s children (every human on earth), something that was so clearly modeled by Christ who is truly the head of our church.

Also included is a message from the Western Jurisdiction College of Bishops.
