During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are joining our community to protect the welfare of our most vulnerable neighbors. The United Church of the San Juans has suspended all on-site programs and activities, until further notice. Please check out our virtual offerings (via Zoom). Stay safe in the arms of our loving God. Learn more in the council message, below.

In April, worship will be going online. We’re now anticipating that we will be on a pause from public worship through mid-May. We’re still working out the details of how to bring worship to you, but some exciting plans are in the works. Stay tuned to Newslink and the website (ucsjridgway.org) for more information. Here are a few of the things we’re working on:

Holy Week 2020 — A Holy Adventure

Palm Sunday (April 5) — Personal Prayer Walk: Embracing the Mind of Christ
Pick up a palm and instructions for a walking prayer service at church to take on a hike with you.

Maundy Thursday (April 9) — Embracing the Life of a Servant
A video-taped service of Holden Evening Prayer remembering our Lord’s last supper.

Good Friday (April 10) — The Passion of Christ
A video-taped dramatic reading of the passion with music.

Easter (April 12) — Embracing New Life in Christ
This Easter will be an experience of the first Easter as we sit, sequestered in our own homes hearing the glorious news of the resurrection!
New life comes where we least expect it!!!

About us

In 2003 a group of Christians in our area met to discuss the possibility of starting a new church to serve the needs of people, love Christ, focus on more traditional worship, and respect and be open to others.

Worshipers from all Faiths are Welcome! Worship service is Sundays at 10 AM.
