We’re back to HYBRID Worship!

A splendid performance venue

Welcome to Wash Park UCC!

A lively community of hope, joy, healing and love.

A Home for Those Seeking...

Rich, creative spiritual
journeys.

We build a safe and energizing home for exploring spirituality within a broad and inclusive framework.

We embrace and actively support each individual’s spiritual journey.

Profoundly supportive community.

We nurture a deep sense of belonging, with joy and laughter and, in times of need, profound support.

And for nearly a century, we’ve been a lively anchor place for deep cross-generational friendships and shared values.

Social and environmental justice.

Calling out and healing injustice takes many forms, and we are active across the spectrum.

In partnership with others in the wider community, we seek to make change in the world, with our core values of justice, peace, and care for the earth.

Upcoming Services

December Worship Services – 10am – Hybrid
 

Dec. 4th – For Such a time as This, Visioning Peace
Mary has a dream in which she experiences an angel, Gabriel, telling her that she will conceive a child by the Holy Spirit. And he tells her that her barren relative Elizabeth also has conceived a son in her advanced age. So Mary takes off for a Judean town where Elizabeth lives to see if all of this is real. The encounter leads Mary to believe that the things spoken to her by the Angel would actually occur and returns to Nazareth in peace. What enables you to envision peace, what brings you peace?

Dec. 11th – For Such a Time as This, Lifting Up that which Brings Joy
We call Mary’s response to the affirmation that the message from Gabriel will be fulfilled, the Magnificat. She sees that the Divine has chosen one considered to be a lowly, a “womb slave” of God as one translation puts it. She finds great joy in God’s choosing one from the ranks of the lowly, not from the rich, powerful, arrogant and mighty of her day. She is filled with joy that God chooses to work through one like her. Sometimes we disqualify ourselves from being used by God by believing that only certain ones can support and care for others and miss the opportunity to be the embodiment of the grace of God in another’s life. For such times as these the Divine continues to work through the lives of ordinary people to make a difference in other’s lives, our communities and even our world. Mary found great joy in knowing she would make a difference; may it also be so that we find such joy!

Dec. 18th – For Such a Time as This, Hearing the Voices of Bethlehem
We are re-imagining our Wash Park Christmas Pageant and you will help write the script. We will hear from those who were a part of that first nativity! Some may be serious, funny, irreverent, or awestruck. So come anticipating a 21st century rendition of what the first participants might have been pondering at the first Nativity.

Dec. 24th – Embracing the Light
Our annual Christmas Eve candlelight service is Saturday at 5:00pm and will include wonderful music, readings and a message designed to help us embrace the light of the world and one another. Plan on bringing family and inviting friends. This will be our only service for the weekend. We hope this will enable Christmas morning to be enjoyed as you do when Christmas is not on Sunday!

A Note From Lee

It is with deep sadness that I share with you that Louise and Bob West lost their eldest son Joshua early this week. Louise shared on Facebook, “We are full of sorrow and heartbreak at the death of our amazing son Joshua Addison West. He was an amazing son, a loving and caring husband, a super dad, a steadfast friend, a sweet and funny uncle, and a kick-ass brother. We love you Josh and hold you in our hearts, today and always.” Bob and Louise.

Please hold Louise and Bob, Josh’s wife Sandy and children, Noah and Zach and their families, in your thoughts and prayers as they live with the grief of Joshua’s untimely death.

Advent continues and December is full of opportunities to share in the events of the season, beginning this weekend with Hanging of the Greens on Saturday and two performances at Wash Park by the Denver Chorale.

Peace,
Lee

Reproductive Justice Resources
Addressing the Dobbs decision
 
In the wake of the recent devastating Supreme Court ruling taking away the rights of women to make their own decisions about their reproductive health care, it’s really easy to feel enraged, immensely hopeless and helpless, and to wonder what to do next.

At the Global Climate Strike

At Wash Park we believe social and eco-justice advocacy is better when we do it together.

In this video, our members and friends reflect on what it means to do this work as part of a spiritual community.
