A Church Rich with History

Fourth-generation Aspen resident, Tony Vagneur was baptised at the church as was his father. Mary and Jim Hayes were married here 58 years ago. 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.

Upcoming

SATURDAY SKIER'S SERVICE

Our new Saturday Skiers’ Service will allow those who wish to ski or who cannot attend the regular Sunday morning service another opportunity to worship at Aspen Community Church. The skiers' service runs through Saturday April 4.  

Good Friday Service

We will have a Good Friday Tenebrae Service at 7:00 pm on Friday, April 3.

The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness." The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Good Friday service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus' burial.

This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, sometimes with a final candle, the Christ candle, carried out of the sanctuary, symbolizing the death of Jesus. A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus' tomb. The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the impact of Christ's death and await the coming Resurrection.

Easter Lily

 

 

We will once again have our traditional Easter brunch following the service on Easter Sunday, April 5 at 9:30 am. Please sign up to bring a dish to share. Everyone is welcome.
