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.

Hymn
Come, Ye Thankful People, Come
Tune: St. George's Windsor
Dory Light, vocals/organ Audio

1.Come, ye thankful people, come,
raise the song of harvest home;
all is safely gathered in,
ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide
for our wants to be supplied;
come to God’s own temple come,
raise the song of harvest home.

2.For the Lord our God shall come,
and shall take the harvest home;
from the field shall in that day
all offenses purge away,
giving angels charge at last
in the fire the tares to cast;
but the fruitful ears to store
in the garner ever more.

3.Even so, Lord, quickly come,
bring thy final harvest home;
gather thou thy people in,
free from sorrow, free from sin,
there, forever purified,
in the presence to abide;
come, with all thine angels, come
raise the glorious harvest home.

 

Scripture /Psalm 118:24

"This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Hymn
Now Thank We All Our God, Tune: Nun Danket
Dory Light, vocals/organ Audio

1.Now thank we all our God,
with heart and hands and voices,
who wondrous things has done,
in whom this world rejoices;
who from our mothers’ arms
has blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love,
and still is ours today.

2.O may this bounteous God
through all our life be near us,
with ever joyful hearts
and blessed peace to cheer us;
and keep us still in grace,
and guide us when perplexed;
and free us from all ills,
in this world and the next.

3.All praise and thanks to God
the Father now be given;
the Son, and him who reigns
with them in highest heaven;
the one eternal God
whom earth and heaven adore;
for thus it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.

News from Kenya – The New School

Greetings from Kenya, and grateful thanks to all of you and others who have helped to provide the new school!

We had the official opening of the school, and these pictures show some of the festivities including pictures with the students,  parents, workmen, and our team. My partners here wanted to honor me by naming the school after me, in spite of my protests. The name of the community is Kisima, which means fountains, an appropriate name for providing fountains of knowledge for the children of this community. There will be many more pictures to share in future, but thought you would enjoy these.

Asante Sana to everyone, from our friends in Kenya!
Debbie
