Through the Church’s boards and committees, our congregational life is sustained in the form of worship, church operations, mission, communications, faith formation, finance, personnel, care for creation, adult education, endowment, fellowship, and congregational care. Participation on a board or committee is both an opportunity to share your gifts of grace and to develop a deeper understanding of those gifts.

If you feel called to serve, in any capacity, please contact the Vice Moderator, Paul Michalec, about the various opportunities that exist. Paul can be reached at paul.michalec@du.edu or 303-988-1359.

Questions? Contact Curt Preston.

Sacred Circles Interest Meeting

November 5, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm


Have you been hearing about Sacred Circles? If you are interested or just curious, this meeting is for you. Excerpts from the book Sacred Circles, “There is undeniable power in the shape of the circle. It is one of the fundamental energy patterns in the natural world. Circles collect and focus energy. We sit facing inward. We create our own rituals, we are sisters in spirit and bosom buddies.” If you would like to explore this idea plan to join us on Sunday, November 5, at 11:30 in the conference room. Questions? Contact Pat Hayes, Sue Johns, or Sheila Weise.
