About this Church

We were established in Steamboat Springs in 1992. We have about 25 members, and typically 20-35 attend the Sunday service. Out-of-town visitors attend often, especially during ski season and in the summer. We have a strong love for each other and the community, and would like to grow, one family at a time. Our congregation age varies from young families to retirees. We are a very active group, with skiing, hiking, fishing and camping being popular activities. Long-time annual events include a special Christmas Eve service and a summer campout at Steamboat Lake State Park. Our retiring pastor was here for 14 years, and the pastor preceding him led our church for 17 years.
