Welcome

We are a caring and welcoming church where people love the Lord and love one another. If this is what you are looking for, we invite you to make us your church home.  Our worship service begins at 10:30 (Mountain Time) on Sunday mornings and includes a mix of contemporary Christian songs, familiar hymns, a children’s message, and a pastoral sermon.

News/Events

Annual Church Elections

Our annual church elections will be held in the sanctuary on Sunday, April 25. We will elect our local Nazarene Missions President and five members to serve on the church board for the 2021-22 church year, which begins on May 1, 2021. A voting table will be set up at the rear of the sanctuary, and voting will take place before AND after the worship service. Only members of the Grand Junction First Church of the Nazarene are eligible to vote.

A brief organizational church board meeting will take place following worship service on May 2, 2021 to assign board responsibilities, and to elect the secretary and treasurer, for the new church year.

The Ladies Book Club is hosting a movie night at 4 p.m. Saturday, May 15 at the church. The movie will be “Soul Surfer.” The youth group will serve concessions. The event is free, but donations for the youth group is accepted to help fund summer camps, events and activities.

District News/Prayer Need

Rev. David Ralph will be retiring as our Colorado District Superintendent this coming June 2021. We have so very much appreciated D.S. David and Carol’s excellent leadership here on the Colorado District for the last 20 years. Please keep D.S. David and Carol in your prayers as they transition into new adventures as the Lord leads them.

Your District Advisory Committee recently met with our USA/Canada Regional Director, Dr. Robert Broadbooks, and soon to be our new USA/Canada Regional Director, Dr. Stan Reeder, to consider the next steps in calling God’s anointed, future leader for the great Colorado District Church of the Nazarene. The Holy Spirit’s presence was evident throughout the meeting, giving each of us the assurance that He will guide us through this time of transition!

We prayerfully discussed the process of nominating and calling a new District Superintendent, and how working with each congregation on the Colorado District is vitally important to determine our strengths and weaknesses as a District, as well as determining together the gifts/graces needed in a new District Superintendent.

At the forefront of all our planning was an overwhelming sense of a need for corporate, united Prayer and Fasting from our Colorado District Family as we seek God’s direction in finding our new leader.  We are not certain how long the process will take, but the members of the District Advisory Committee are committed to praying, fasting, and listening for God’s voice! – and we invite you to join us in this united effort.

As we begin this journey together, we challenge you to pray BOLD prayers – the first specific area of prayer is that God directs us during the transition time so that His Kingdom Group called Nazarenes here in Colorado prospers in the midst of our search! We look forward to the exciting things God has in store as we seek Him together for our new District Superintendent…
