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

outreach, a love of music, learning,
