On Sundays centuries-old rituals and God’s message of hope and love combine to inspire and challenge us to face a noisy, complicated world with grace and love.

We welcome you to participate in and experience a transformative order of worship, beautiful choral music, vibrant congregational singing, and inspiring sounds from the organ. The order for the service--prayers, hymns and lessons—are provided in a bulletin so that all may participate as they wish.

At the 10:30 am service, children join the a member of the clergy for the children’s sermon after Sunday School, and then join their families for the remainder of the service.

Following either service, hospitality hour in the parish hall gives everyone a chance to connect with old friends, make new ones and weave more threads into the fabric of our parish life.

Ushers at the back of the church are available at anytime to answer any questions. We hope you will help us welcome you personally by completing the Contact Us form.

Where were you born?  
I was born in St. Andrew Parish in Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies.

Why do you go to church?
I attend church because growing up with my grandparents, especially my grandmother, she believed it was important for the family to worship.  I really did not have a choice…even when she was not going (…was not well, etc), my cousin, brother and I had to go.  As I got older, church became a major part of my life…it was and is a place to grow with others who are on a spiritual journey such as I.

I moved to Colorado Springs in December of 2009 and have been a member since that time.

  •  1 Thessalonians 5:18, "In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
  •  Isaiah 40:31, "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."


Where do you see God in the world?
I see God in all things, especially in creation/nature and in others.

I enjoy quiet moments, in addition to hiking, cycling, reading various kinds of books, lifting weights and spending time with friends over wine and a good meal.
