A Church for the World

The Aspen Community Church has maintained an outreach program in Kenya since 2008, in partnership with Kenyan communities, villages, individuals, and the Methodist Church of Kenya. Our work has focused on clean water systems, improved school facilities, scholarships, and emergency aid. These valuable partnerships, energized by annual team trips, help us to continue this important, life-saving work. Read about Kenya PEAK.



A Church for the Community

A gathering place for musicians to rehearse and perform, groups to meet, yoga, AA and NA meetings and a place for those needing to find support. See our calendar of events.

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

Celebrating in Kenya

Aspen Community Church’s Kenya mission efforts are now in our 13th year!

In January 2020, in addition to our ongoing clean water work and scholarship programs, we joyfully celebrated the opening of two pre-school classrooms in Deborah Fountains Primary School, a new school that we are helping to build in a rural community outside of Meru.

Although COVID-19 caused schools to be closed in Kenya in March 2020, our efforts continued throughout the year. Fortunately, the pre-school was able to reopen in January 2021, followed by all Kenyan schools in May. It is with great delight that we announce that the first-grade classroom has been completed and is opening this summer.

Even though our team trips are still on hold, the need for funds continues to be essential – not only for our ongoing work to provide clean water systems in schools and villages, but also to continue our high school and college scholarship programs, as well as additional assistance when needed. Learn more about our efforts and how to help here
