Join us for Worship every Sunday at 9:30am



We are an intergenerational family of God, celebrating, seeking, and sharing abundant life in Jesus.

During the week, our members and friends can be found scattered throughout the Denver metro area. Each Sunday morning, we gather together in our building on the corner of Emerson and Colorado in Denver's Platt Park neighborhood. We come from all walks of life--we are young and old and middle aged, teachers and business people and unemployed, married and single and divorced, full of faith and full of doubts and sometimes full of both. Whether we are together or apart, in our church building or in our homes, schools, neighborhoods or workplaces, our prayer is that we would be people who celebrate, seek, and share the abundant life that Jesus came to bring. We would love to have you join our family as we seek to live this life together!

Upcoming Events

Grow Groups are one way we connect with others and encourage each other in faith. They are intergenerational groups that will meet five specific Sundays in the coming educational year (Next Grow group is February 11, 2018 at 11:30), to study God's Word and share a meal. Grow Groups provide care and encouragement for senior saints, those who are shut-in due to health issues or hospitalization and for people new to our neighborhood. For details and dates of Grow Group meetings, please click on the link below, or call #303.733.4936

Or visit the Grow Groups Page.

First Church looks forward to Margaret Njuguna's visit as she honors God's plan to provide a big and beautiful home for children who require special care in the Athi River area of Kenya in Africa? These special needs children, born with a variety of capabilities and disabilities (physical and emotional), are often disregarded by villages, in a culture that has many superstitious beliefs about special needs children. We know God's loving touch, through human hearts and hands, brings the healing hope of Jesus Christ to these children, and dispels the darkness of superstition. Look for more updates to come!
