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.

High Country Sinfonia

present works by

Bach, Elgar, and Debussy

Monday, October 21 at 7:00 PM 

The High Country Sinfonia is a small chamber string orchestra founded by Wendy Larson in 2015.  It is comprised of professional and semi-professional musicians in the Roaring Fork Valley. Our guest soloist is Rob Merritt playing Tommaso Albinoni’s Sonata in C for Solo Trumpet and Strings. We are also playing a very unique piece; Astor PIazzolla’s Oblivion arranged for four violas by Nancy Thomas.

Concerts are free and last about one hour.  Donations are appreciated and welcome.

Thank You, Jon Busch!

For an untold number of faithful years Jon Busch has been our Communion Steward and our Acolyte, as well as our organ curator and benefactor. And now the time has come for Jon to retire as our Communion Steward. Many thanks, Jon, for your years of faithful ministry!

Communion Steward

We are in need of someone to volunteer once a month, on the first Sunday of the month, to be Communion Steward. Contact Don Bird, Jon Busch, or the church office for details.

Great news! Our sock drive is gaining momentum! Socks and checks keep arriving at the church! An overflowing container is set up in my office and for the next 12 weeks (until the Sunday before Christmas) we are collecting socks for our friends without homes. Plain cotton crew socks are best and can easily be ordered on Amazon. Size 6-12 works best. Feel free to bring them in any Sunday you show up for church, knowing you are helping keep someone warm this winter. (Socks are the least donated and most requested item.) The socks will be distributed thru us and various agencies. Can’t wait to watch our miracle occur as we get closer to seeing the miracle of Jesus’s birth! Get ready: Miracles are on the way!

Deep Peace Within - Among - Beyond
Five Day Academy for Spiritual Formation

The Mountain Sky Conference's Five-Day Academy for Spiritual Formation will be Sept. 29 to Oct. 4 at Flathead Lake United Methodist Camp in Montana. The Academy is a ministry of The Upper Room for all persons – lay and clergy, any denomination – who hunger for a deeper relationship with God. The theme for this Mountain Sky Five-Day Academy is Deep Peace: Within - Among - Beyond. Many of us long for peace in turbulent times. How can we embody peace - truly deep peace? Not the peace that comes through avoidance and separation, but an integrated sense of shalom – present to our own internal and external struggles. Come to the water's edge at Flathead Lake United Methodist Camp for five days of contemplative space and time to explore your soul's longing for deep peace. Our faculty will be Amy Oden and Hy Xuan Lee. The worship leader is Elise Eslinger.
