A Lenten Bible Study will be held February 22 - March 29 at 6 p.m. The focus of the study will be the book entitled "The God We Can Know." Getting to know God means getting to know ourselves. The more we know who God is the more we know who we are. The Gospel of John records several declarations of Jesus known as the "I Am" sayings. This 6-week study is designed for the entire congregation to explore each of those sayings and will help you find and form an answer to the most essential question in the Christian faith, "Who do you say I am?" One by one, Jesus' statements grab our imagination, reveal more about his identity and purpose, and connect us to the God of Moses, who spoke the first "I Am." These significant yet ordinary images (bread, light, shepherd, vine, and more) give us insightful ways to experience Jesus and point us to a God who wants to be known.
Community United Methodist Church is located in downtown Pagosa Springs one block north of Highway 160. Parking is available in the lot east of the church and along Lewis Street. On Sunday, parking across the street is diagonal to the curb to allow for more cars.
Sunday School classes meet weekly for all ages. Currently the young children are reading Bible Stories, and they do a craft or art project that is related to each story. They also learn songs and games, have a snack, and share a time of prayer before leaving. Two adult classes are offered with a variety of subjects and formats. Bible Study courses are held several times throughout the year. Check the Education Page for details.
Community United Methodist Church has been serving the community of Pagosa Springs and Archuleta County in Colorado for over 100 years. The original church was built in 1897 and the current facility was constructed in 1968 with an education wing and chapel added in 1986. In 2009 the sanctuary building was remodeled, including a new roof and facade on the front of the church. A bell tower similar to that of the original church was added.
The purpose of the Community United Methodist Church is to celebrate in, communicate about, and witness to the Love of Christ in our church, community and world. Our services are planned to provide a special worship experience to everyone. The early service is non-traditional, offering contemporary music, while the late service has a more traditional format. with music shared by our chancel choir.
