A Church for the World
The Aspen Community Church’s outreach and work in Kenya is now in its eighth year – an amazing effort in partnership with other churches and Rotary International – currently providing clean water to thousands of students and teachers at more than 40 schools. Read about Kenya PEAK.

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.

Kenya Projects Update – April 2016
The Aspen Community Church’s projects in Meru and Samburu, Kenya are continuing to do well in 2016, with great news to share about clean water projects in both regions. Phase 2 of our three-year partnership with Rotary is now complete, with 29 schools receiving clean water systems in the past year, and Phase 3 will begin in mid-summer. In addition, during our January 2016 team trip, two schools in Meru and two in Samburu were identified as needing additional assistance, which has also been completed in the past month.
Progress also continues on the new School Administration Block building, including a computer lab, at Thuura High School, where we helped build a new library in 2012. Funds raised have also helped provide assistance to Bishop Catherine's street children program in Meru, as well as high school scholarship funds.
Plans are already in the works for another team trip in January 2017. Stay tuned for more updates, and feel free to contact Debbie Welden for more information.
