Rev. Claus Rohlfs, Pastor

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.



          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 and a class for teens and their families are offered with a variety of subjects and formats. Evening Bible Study courses are held several times throughout the year. Check the Education Page for details.
