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, after the service 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.

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.

As a young couple who were looking for a church community in a new city where our values could be met, we found a home with First CRC of Denver. From our pre-marital counseling with Pastor Joel, to service projects with Grow Groups, to weekly fellowship and worship, our faith was nurtured and enriched. Pastor Joel preaches the Word in a clarifying and enlightening way so that we leave each Sunday motivated to live out our faith. It has been an incredible blessing to belong to such a body of believers.

Now we turn to the next chapter of our lives. Being passionate for travel and nature, we have decided to take on hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. The PCT is a hiking path stretching from Mexico to Canada over a distance of 2,650 miles through the states of California, Oregon and Washington. As part of our journey we wish to raise awareness and support for En-Gedi Children's Home. Ever since Margaret Njuguna, founder of En-Gedi, visited First CRC and shared her mission and vision for children with disabilities, we've felt lead to support this worthwhile cause.
