Who We Are

Black Forest Community Church 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, Elbert, and others.
We are affiliated with the United Church of Christ (UCC), a mainline Protestant denomination, and made up of people from many different backgrounds and expressions of faith.
Our services are friendly toward those who are new to the church experience, as well as those who are lifetime church- goers. Holy Communion is celebrated during worship on the first Sunday of each month, and anyone who trusts in Jesus, regardless of membership or baptism status, is invited to participate. Nursery care and children's Sunday School are provided every Sunday during our worship service. We offer an informal fellowship time with coffee and snacks downstairs in Hardesty Hall after each service, and we invite everyone to participate, as this is an excellent way to meet the other congregants and learn more about the church.
We extend a warm welcome and hope you feel a part of the family of God each time you worship here.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our services are semi-traditional and infused with practical spirituality, inquisitive thinking, and humor. We are a Christian church, but as a community church, we welcome people of all spiritual and religious backgrounds. We practice an open, inclusive spirituality and do not pretend to have all the answers.

What is the community like?
We average around 90 people in worship, and we have a nice mix of young families, middle-aged, and older members. We often have a dozen kids come forward for the Children's Time with the pastor before they go to Sunday School. Our senior-high youth stay in worship, and they say they find it relevant and relatable. Our youth group meets two Wednesday evenings each month, in addition to mission trips and other events.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You're welcome here regardless of what you believe. Most of us have found our faith through Jesus, but we are a community church, so we welcome people of all backgrounds. Many elements of our worship are specifically Christian, but we try to create worship experiences that everyone will get something out of without feeling pressured to see things our way. We just love getting to know people!
