Join us for Worship every Sunday at 9:30am

Worship with Us!

Would you like to worship with our First Church family during this time of social distancing? You can find an at home liturgy here:



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!

Triune God:

You are a beautiful mystery. You are three yet one, perfectly united even in your diversity. Make your people one as you are one. When politics, preferences, and opinions threaten to divide us, help us share the mind of Christ. Fill us with humility and grace. Teach us to listen to those whose perspectives differ from our own. Grant us patience with those who fail or frustrate us. Strengthen the bonds you have forged between us in baptism so that, together, we may declare the goodness of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever, Amen.

4. Groups that do meet will have to be limited to 10 or less, maintain at least 6 feet of separation, and everyone should wear a mask.
