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

Bible Study

Are you interested in learning more about the Bible, its history and meaning?  Here is your opportunity.  Starting Monday, July 10 at 7:30 pm, Rev. Nickerson will begin a weekly Bible study, the first two weeks of which will be a general introduction to the Bible.  Future study topics will be decided by the class and could range anywhere from specific books of the Bible to scriptural themes or theological perspectives on current events.  Classes will be discussion oriented with everyone bringing their own experience and understanding to share with the class.
