The Colorado Children’s Chorale sings for us usually once a year. This summer our congregation hosted 32 choir members for three nights and provided a pot luck supper before their concert. This was a highlight, especially hearing the choir sing about their dreams to make a better world through songs.
Rev. Barbara Palmer is one of our guest pastors.
If you are considering joining us for worship, here is a taste of what you may experience. By and large, the 10:00 service follows a traditional form of worship. Folks who are drawn to this style of worship find sustenance from ancient ways of praying and engaging God. Relying on ancient forms to speak into the present and to frame the future does not mean we are stuck in the past. It simply means we are willing to glean timeless wisdom for relevant and vital living in the present.
How should I dress?
Come as you are! You will meet folks dressed in jeans and T-shirts, while others may be wearing their Sunday best, and everything in between! At the end of the day, God simply wants to meet us as we are.
Where should I park and where do I enter the building?
Parking can be a challenge..especially when it’s snowy. Cooper Avenue is a one way, residential street. You may find parking in front or alongside houses both along 10th Avenue off Grand and on Cooper Avenue. We reserve parking closest to the stairs for those needing to walk less rather than more. The city’s municipal parking structure is also available just down the hill from our building.
Once you park, you may enter the front door and up the stairs to the sanctuary where you will be welcomed by one of greeters. Or, walk up the sidewalk and into our “mission center” where we have both an elevator and stairs. Go up one level. Then, it’s a turn to the right and into the sanctuary from the front.
What is the worship service like? (Including: The OFFERING explained)
Our Sunday morning service usually begins with a welcome from the Elder of the Day, announcements, a congregational welcoming time, and a gathering prayer. After greeting one another, we move into a time of music and prayer, followed by a message for the day. On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper before singing a final song and receiving a blessing. After the service, we move to THE GATHERING SPACE for light refreshments. A normal Sunday service usually lasts one hour. While we have an opportunity to give to the ministry of the church; please, do not feel compelled to put an offering in the plate. The offering represents on opportunity to respond to God’s goodness in our lives. It is not meant to be a manipulation to give.
Are there any classes for my children during the service?
Yes, after gathering in the sanctuary for opening worship,we have a regular enrichment offering for the kids.
