Black Forest Community Church, United Church of Christ
"In my time here, what I have learned about BFCC is that it is a small but mighty church, that is open and affirming (meaning 100% inclusive), is not perfect (meaning, that this community is deeply human) but, most importantly, beyond loving. This is a congregation that functions more like a verb, not a noun and from what I can tell, is truly the hands and feet of Jesus. In addition, it is a place where your kids can be equal participants in congregational life. If you are looking for a place to serve, unfold the kin-dom of God and want a sense of belonging and to feel loved, you are welcome!" - Marta, pastor
Join us Sunday morning for worship at 10AM.
PRAYground for children pre-k-5th grade during worship. We believe that worship is for everyone and faith development is for everyone and that this can happen in one space! Check out the Pastor's blog post on PrayerGrounds.
Fellowship time follows the service.
The Black Forest Community Church (BFCC) is truly the community’s congregation. Our congregation consists of people from Black Forest as well as many other areas, including: Colorado Springs, Monument, Falcon, Peyton, and Elbert, to name a few.
We are a member of the Southeastern Association of the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Church of Christ (UCC), one of the mainline Protestant denominations; and made up of peoples from many different backgrounds and expressions of faith. Our worship is always scripture-based and Christ-centered. Our services are friendly towards those who are new to the church experience, as well as those who are lifetime worshipers. Holy Communion is celebrated during worship, usually on the first Sunday of each month, and anyone, regardless of membership or baptism status, is invited to participate. Nursery care is provided every Sunday during our worship service. We offer an informal fellowship with coffee and snacks downstairs in Hardesty Hall after each service, and we invite everyone to participate. This fellowship is an excellent way to meet the other congregants, and learn more about us.
For decades, we have also run First Step Preschool, a highly rated, Christian preschool with activities and programs for children and their families.
We extend a warm welcome and hope you feel a part of the family of God each time you worship here.
