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 (beginning October 8, 2017 from 11AM-1:30PM), 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.

The theme for our six Grow Group Sundays will be “Songs We Sing Together.” During both our corporate worship times and the times of intergenerational fellowship that follow, we will have the opportunity to sing songs that have been especially meaningful to fellow members of our church family. We will also have the opportunity to share how these songs have shaped and sustained us on our faith journeys. However, to make this work, we need your help. Could you please share:

  • The name of a song (or two) that has been meaningful to you on your faith journey--or somewhere along the way.
  • A few short sentences explaining how this song impacted you.

Please email your songs to or submit them to the church office by September 17. Multiple submissions are welcome and people of all ages are encouraged to participate. We look forward to hearing from you--and we look forward to singing with you!

Or visit the Grow Groups Page.

Prayer is a vital part of our communication with God. It is our privilege and delight to care for each other through prayer. As a congregation we lift up prayers for each other and the world around us every week. We are blessed to have a group of women who meet regularly for confidential prayer, and a specific prayer group that focuses on prayer support for persecuted believers. Currently we are praying strategically for Afghanistan.

We are so excited to reconnect, share a meal and equip one another as we grow as a church family in our Christian Faith!
