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.

Welcome New Members
We are very pleased to welcome new members, Jessica Garrow and Ted Parenti and their daughter, Hazel, to our church family.
Jessica and Ted have lived in the Roaring Fork Valley since 2006. They met in Aspen through mutual friends just weeks after the both moved here and hit it off right away (though Jessica doesn't remember the first time they met). They were married at the Aspen Historical Society in 2010. After living in Carbondale for seven years, they've called Aspen home for the last year. Jessica has a master's from The Ohio State University in city planning and is the community development director for the City of Aspen. Ted has a master's in social work from Simmons College in Boston and is a counselor at Basalt High School. They enjoy hiking and camping and running around after their almost 3-year old Hazel.
New Childcare Provider
We are pleased to welcome Nina Padden as our new childcare person for Sunday mornings. Nina is well known in our community for her child care expertise since she ran her own licensed childcare program for 10 years in Aspen. She loves working with children and the children love her.
