Aspen Community Church supports Black Lives Matter

Aspen Community Church has a long proud history of reaching out into the local community to address the local need of the day.

We are proud to be the first United Methodist church in the state to be recognized as a reconciling church within the LGBTQ community. We believe that love is love and all people are of sacred worth.

The homeless have always had a special place in the hearts of Aspen Community Church. Every year, Aspen Community Church spends thousands of dollar on bus passes, fresh clean socks and grocery cards so the most vulnerable of our community have transportation, clean feet and food to eat!

One of the Black Lives Matter Protest organizers and Aspen Community Church attendee Jennelle Figgins holds a sign as Pastor Jerry Herships and Laura Herships participate in the protest in Aspen, CO.

As we have seen in our world in recent days, racial injustice is everywhere. A number of members of our congregation stood with our brothers and sisters of color in recent Black Lives Matter protests. Our pastor was asked to speak at a number of these protests and was honored to do so. Aspen Community Church recognizes that, in the words of Martin Luther King, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

Aspen Community Church works hard to walk along side anyone in our world that has been oppressed or has had to live on the margins of society.

We would love for you to walk with us.
