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.
A Progressive United Methodist Congregation
We will once again be having an Easter brunch following the service on Easter Sunday, April 16. Please sign up to bring a dish to share. Sign ups for Easter flowers will also be available.
Felix Hell to Perform Organ Recital at
Aspen Community Church
Felix Hell will perform at the church on Tuesday, March 28 at 6:00 pm. Admission is free but donation are greatly appreciated.
A native of Germany, Felix Hell is one of the most sought after concert organists in the world. He has been featured as a recitalist and concerto soloist in more than 850 concerts throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. He is known for his diverse and innovative programming, drawing upon a repertoire encompassing five centuries. He has also received global recognition for his marathon performances of the entire organ works of J.S. Bach, which encompass about 250 compositions and close to 20 hours of performance time. With his project “Music Across America” he travels with his own touring organ, performing organ concertos and recitals in spaces that do not house pipe organs, liberating the instrument from its historic confines.
Mr. Hell studied at the Juilliard School in New York, the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, and the Peabody Institute in Baltimore. In 2007, he received Johns Hopkins University’s prestigious Outstanding Graduate Award. More information can be found at FelixHell.com.
