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
United Methodist Congregation
with a commitment to community and
outreach, a love of music, learning,
and worship.

 

Make ACC Be Debt Free

A capital campaign is underway to eliminate the outstanding debt and provide a maintenance fund for the parsonage. The goal is $250,000 which will pay off the $200,000 loan and raise $50,000 for maintenance. We have received pledges and gifts totally $203,600 and only need $46,400 to reach our goal. All pledges and gifts are welcome, no matter how small. Feel free to contact Pastor Mike with any questions  Pledge cards are available in the narthex. Thank you for your help.
