A Church for the World

The Aspen Community Church has maintained an outreach program in Kenya since 2008, in partnership with Kenyan communities, villages, individuals, and the Methodist Church of Kenya. Our work has focused on clean water systems, improved school facilities, scholarships, and emergency aid. These valuable partnerships, energized by annual team trips, help us to continue this important, life-saving work. Read about Kenya PEAK.



A Church for the Community

A gathering place for musicians to rehearse and perform, groups to meet, yoga, AA and NA meetings and a place for those needing to find support. See our calendar of events.

A Church Rich with History

The Aspen Community Church building was built in 1890 and has been the home of a Presbyterian congregation, then a federated congregation in the 20’s and became a Methodist congregation in the 30’s.  It has served many generations of people in Aspen.

Recognizing the outstanding acoustics of the sanctuary, John Denver and the Dickens Carolers recorded their Christmas album here. For so many Aspen families, the Community Church has been a special place to worship, celebrate and grow in faith. Read about our history.

Aspen Community Church’s Kenya Projects Updates

We have recently begun the 15th year of Aspen Community Church’s outreach in Kenya. We are grateful for the progress, which we continue to build on, even as the challenges remain.

In spite of the impact of COVID, and with the help of our Kenyan partners, we have been able to continue our work providing clean water systems in schools and villages, improved school facilities, as well as our high school and college scholarship program. These young people continue to inspire us with their eagerness to seek a good education and a more positive future.

Also, Deborah Fountains School, the pre-school that we opened in 2020, is going strong, and we’re thrilled to announce the addition of the 1st and 2nd grade classrooms in the past two years. Work will begin soon on the 3rd grade classroom, to open in January 2023. The number of students has more than doubled, and we anticipate continued growth in the coming year. The community is extremely grateful for our efforts to provide a safe, quality primary school in this remote area.

And now, after more than two years, we are looking forward to a return trip to Kenya in January 2023. The need for funds continues, not only for our ongoing work providing clean water systems in schools and villages, but also to maintain our high school and college scholarship programs, plus provide additional assistance when needed. Learn more about our efforts and how to help here.
