HOW WE PRACTICE
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you....
- John 13:34
We are a member congregation of the United Church of Christ. We embrace both the timeless truth of the God's Good News and the responsibility of each generation to make faith its own in reality of worship, in honesty of thought and expression, and in humility of heart before God.
As an Open and Affirming congregation, we welcome and worship with people of different spiritual backgrounds, economic statuses, physical and mental abilities, cultures, ages, races, languages, sexual orientations and gender identities.
We tend toward a faithful blend of traditional and folk worship styles with progressive theology and inclusive values.
God calls us as a people to be one body in Christ, living in service and mission to the community.
We are as committed to caring for people and Creation outside our church as within it. We have strong, thriving food and service missions. Non-members often join us in them.
Area residents and local organizations and officials know that we are sincere and willing to help as needs arise. Our involvement in the wider community has grown and strengthened during the pandemic, as we make it through together.
Nestled in Colorado's Ute Pass, in the small community of Green Mountain Falls, we are a small, growing church. Our historic building and our congregation are a unique blend of traditional and innovative. If you are looking for the best of old and new, you will find it here.
We are a genuinely fun, friendly family of faith. We will notice and welcome you. If you are looking for genuine friendships and mutual care in faith and life, you will find it here.
We have worked hard to become a healthy congregation, with high respect and low "drama." We can bear all things, hope all things, endure all things in Christ's love. If you are looking for transparency, civility and humility in a church, you will find it here.
