We're glad you're here!
As a church, we seek to glorify God by inviting neighbors to find a home in Christ together. We'd love for you to join us on Saturday evenings at 5:00 PM or Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM for services (Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend summer schedule). We also have a fun and safe environment for kids that will keep them engaged and entertained as they explore God's Word.
Aspen Ridge Church is located in the foothills of Colorado between Evergreen and Conifer. You can find us at the intersection of Highway 73 and North Turkey Creek Road, just off the roundabout. Feel free to look around our website and contact us by phone or email with any questions or needs you may have. We look forward to meeting you soon!
Please note that the children's department of Aspen Ridge Church is a nut-free zone for the safety of those with food allergies.
The best way to get to know us is to come and join us in person. We celebrate the home we have found in Christ through corporate worship, small groups, and service projects. Regular worship services are great opportunities to get a feel for who we are and to meet some of your neighbors. On Sunday, there are numerous small groups for adults and a vibrant children's program as well. If you cannot make it on Sunday or would like to plug into something smaller, you can check out any of the small groups or church activities that are going on throughout the week.
CORPORATE WORSHIP AND WHY IT'S IMPORTANT
We are about inviting neighbors to find a home in Christ together, and it is foundational for us to celebrate in a way that is welcoming and attractive, while focusing on Christ and biblical teaching. We intend to make our Christian faith accessible and intelligible to our neighbors and community with our worship services. We have found an article by Tim Keller (entitled ‘Evangelistic Worship’) helpful in explaining our way of thinking about corporate worship.
A significant part of our strategy for church life has to do with gathering for spiritual growth in small groups. In many ways, our mission statement calls for relationships and Christian community. "Inviting neighbors" best happens when we are living in loving relationships with each other. "Finding a home in Christ" suggests that we meet as families in homes, building our core relationships with God and each other. "Together" reminds us that the Christian life is not a life of isolation or individualism. Our small group meetings have everything to do with prayerfully relying upon God’s Word to guide us toward our home in Christ. They also are an important avenue to invest in families so the generation-to-come may know the treasures of the Gospel.
Some time ago our leadership was given a practical help in the direction we intended to go with an article by Larry Osborne entitled “Seven Advantages of Sermon-Based Small Groups.” We encourage you to read his article, if you would like to know more about why we have decided to focus on sermon-based small groups.
If you have more questions about small group life at Aspen Ridge Church, you may contact the church office.
If our community is going to stand up and take notice of the difference our faith makes in everyday life, it will be because we show our love in practical actions of service. We show God loves us by loving one another; we show God loves the world by demonstrating that love in tangible acts of service in our community and world. We believe we are sent by God so our community and world may come to know Jesus Christ. This means that we will take the same posture Jesus took: “For the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
5:00 PM: Our Saturday evening services have an earlier time, in an effort to accommodate a wider range of families and schedules. This service has a more laid-back feel, complete with tables and Keurig coffee makers for your favorite brew. Dress is casual, and children's classes are still available during this time. Give it a try, and let us know your thoughts!
We would love to have you join us on Sunday mornings! Please stop by the Welcome Center upstairs to meet a host who will help you find where to go and answer questions you may have. As with most mountain destinations, we have no dress code. Dress for the weather and be comfortable.
9:00 AM & 10:45 AM: Join us for one of our services on Sunday mornings for worship, Bible-teaching and a community that desires to grow, love and serve our neighbors together. Children's Church meets during each of these times, and elementary-aged children are welcome to join us downstairs in the KidZone.
Check our calendar for upcoming events and ways to get involved!
