Join us for Worship every Sunday at 9:30am

Welcome to FIRST CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCH of Denver

JOIN US ON THE JOURNEY

We are a family of God, living our faith and growing by: Joyfully surrendering to Jesus, freely sharing our lives and humbly embracing the hurting.

During the week, our members and friends can be found scattered throughout the Denver metro area. Every Sunday morning we gather together at 9:30am, 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: educators, chaplains, hard hats, 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 (built in 1908) or in our homes, schools, neighborhoods or workplaces, our prayer is that we be a family of God, living our faith and growing by joyfully surrendering to Jesus, freely sharing our lives and humbly embracing the hurting. 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 educational year. Our Grow group celebration is scheduled for May 5th, 2019 at 11:00! We will share a BBQ picnic meal and welcome our newest members. Grow Groups provide care and encouragement for everyone, visit and pray for those who are shut-in due to health issues or hospitalization, and welcome people new to our fellowship.

Today, just like in New Testament times, Christians are persecuted all around the world for following Jesus. Currently, 1 in 12 believers experience hostility as a result of their identification with Christ. On the second Monday of each month the Prayer Group for Persecuted Believers meets at First CRC Denver and experiences the joy of being part of the worldwide family of God. We gather to pray for, serve and learn from our persecuted family, and we’ve found that the presence of the Holy Spirit is very real as we meet. Although our group is composed of men and women, three different generations and multiple denominations, we have a unity of heart and mind and a bond that can only come through Christ. God has called each member of our group to practice Hebrews 13:3, “Remember your fellow believers in prison as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.” Every time we meet our faith grows by hearing stories of how our brothers and sisters around the world joyfully surrender to Jesus in the midst of severe suffering. Their example challenges us to ask ourselves, “Am I willing to sacrifice my family relationships, job, home, freedom, health and even my life to follow Christ?” We grapple with understanding what Scripture means by calling us to fully surrender to Jesus. “In fact, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” 2 Timothy 3:12 Often believers living in countries that are hostile to Christianity still freely share their lives and their faith with their family and neighbors. Their joy in knowing the true God cannot be contained. They have counted the cost and know that Jesus is worth it all! Our group desires to learn from their example. We humbly come alongside them and lift them up to God through fervent prayer. We also share our lives with them by writing letters of encouragement, supplying Bibles and Christian resources, and meeting some of their physical, medical and practical needs through ministries such as Open Doors USA and Voice of the Martyrs. An unexpected blessing of this Prayer Group has been the way God has worked to allow us to care for and support one another. We have welcomed many new members over the years and would love to have more people join us.
