Welcome to Aspen Ridge Church
We’re glad you’re here.
What to Expect
5:00 PM: Our Saturday evening services have an earlier time, in an effort to accommodate a wider range of families and schedules. This service has a more laid-back feel, complete with bistro tables and Keurig coffee makers for your favorite brew. Dress is casual, and children’s classes are available during this time. Give it a try, and let us know your thoughts!
10:00 AM: We would love to have you join us on Sunday mornings! Please stop by the Welcome Center, upstairs, to meet a host who will help you find where to go and answer questions you may have. As with most mountain destinations, we have no dress code. Dress for the weather and be comfortable. Children’s Church meets during each of these times, and elementary-aged children are welcome to join us downstairs in the KidZone, while our youngest guests can join us in the nursery on the upper level. We also have small groups during these times for our middle and high school students. Check in with the Welcome Center or one of our greeters, who would be happy to assist you in finding the best fit for each member of the family.
Wednesday nights are family-oriented times to make friends and build relationships, while growing in Christ together. A family dinner is offered at 5:30 PM during the school year for $4 per person or $12 per family. We love to hang out with friends and neighbors and enjoy a meal together. Activities begin right after dinner with AWANA for elementary-aged kids, DV8 Student Ministries for middle school students and seasonal/topical/service opportunities for high school students and adults.
High school students are invited to join DV8 Student Ministries for games, teaching and hanging with friends on Thursday nights from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. There’s always something fun going on with this group, and you can find them on Facebook to keep up on the latest.
Worship with Us
The best way to get to know us is to come and join us in person. We celebrate the home we have found in Christ through corporate worship, small groups, and service projects. Regular worship services are great opportunities to get a feel for who we are and to meet some of your neighbors. On Sunday, there are numerous small groups for adults and a vibrant children’s program as well. If you cannot make it on Sunday or would like to plug into something smaller, you can check out any of the small groups or church activities that are going on throughout the week.
Grow with Us
A significant part of our strategy for church life has to do with gathering for spiritual growth in small groups. In many ways, our mission statement calls for relationships and Christian community. “Inviting neighbors” best happens when we are living in loving relationships with each other. “Finding a home in Christ” suggests that we meet as families in homes, building our core relationships with God and each other. “Together” reminds us that the Christian life is not a life of isolation or individualism. Our small group meetings have everything to do with prayerfully relying upon God’s Word to guide us toward our home in Christ. They also are an important avenue to invest in families so the generation-to-come may know the treasures of the Gospel.
Serve with Us
If our community is going to stand up and take notice of the difference our faith makes in everyday life, it will be because we show our love in practical actions of service. We show God loves us by loving one another; we show God loves the world by demonstrating that love in tangible acts of service in our community and world. We believe we are sent by God so our community and world may come to know Jesus Christ. This means that we will take the same posture Jesus took: “For the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
