Christ Church United Methodist

A Reconciling Congregation




Christ Church is a United Methodist congregation in central Denver. Our faith community takes seriously both the heart and the mind as we nurture the spirit of God. You will find a community striving to be real: combining intellectual questions along with heart-felt experiences to seek wholeness in living. We believe you will be welcomed, loved, and embraced in authentic and vulnerable ways. We believe there is a unique place to find hope in the midst of a dark, chaotic, and challenging world -  at the corner of 7th and Colorado.


Our hope is that you will find here a Christian community of integrity that will challenge you and encourage you in your spiritual journey. We invite you to be part of the community we call church.

Labyrinth Open


The labyrinth is a symbol of our lives, especially the journey of Lent. We walk into the center of the labyrinth and pause to reflect on our personal struggles, wildernesses, or challenges in an effort to find resolution or another path to walk in life. We then walk back into the world connected to God and finding a new way of being. The labyrinth will be in the Fellowship Hall all of Lent, beginning Thursday, March 2nd and you are welcome to walk it on Sundays or during the week when other groups are not using the space. Please call the church office to verify the labyrinth is open, 303-322-0784.

Special Offering This Sunday


This Sunday is UMCOR Sunday, formerly known as One Great Hour of Sharing. This offering is taken once a year and goes to cover the operating expenses of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) so 100% of donations given the remainder of the year are used in disaster relief. Special offering envelopes will be available if you'd like to give an additional gift. More information can be found at


Koins for Kids Offering


This Sunday our Koins for Kids Offering will go to Pura Vida to help Ingrid, our sponsored student in Guatemala.

Last Call for Yard Signs


We sold out of our "We're glad you're our neighbor" yard signs, again. But we have had requests for more and are trying to determine if there is enough interest to warrant ordering 50 more. The price will be $12 each to cover our costs. Please email Rebecca in the church office if you would like to place your pre-order,



As we journey through Lent we focus on being Grounded for the Long Road and our prayer is you are able to find or affirm the spiritual practice that grounds you in the midst of the turmoil and challenges of life.


Sermon this week: Grounded in Prayer. Austin Piper will focus on the prayer of Jesus for us.
