"We exist to be a witness of God's love, to encourage others, to know Christ and make Him known."

Welcome - A word from our pastor

Ask a group of people to define what a church is and you will probably hear a number of different answers. Some think that the church is just a religious organization self-empowered to rule the lives of its members. Others consider it more of a social agency, obligated to meet the needs of the community, to be there when you marry and when you die. Still others have a certain disdain for the church for its old-fashion ideas and puritanical values.

What then composes a church? While the above definitions do indeed characterize many twenty-first century churches, the Lord sees the church (His Church) as people, a special people, a called-out people, born-again believers called out by God from sin's judgment to eternal glory and personal holiness for the purpose of worshiping and glorifying Him. Thus, the church is a living organism, pulsating with the life of God imparted by His Spirit to each believer.

Grace Brethren Church of Colorado Springs is our title, but family is the essence, for we, as called-out people are united as a family of individuals, each one unique, each one sharing with others a special set of gifts, talents and needs, each involved in the dynamics of spiritual growth...reaching forward... enjoying the support and encouragement of God's family.

In Like Precious Faith,

Pastor Robert Schaffer

15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

16 Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. 17 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.

Colossians 3:15-17 (NIV)
Sing a new song to the Lord
 Let the whole earth sing to the Lord!
 Sing to the Lord; praise his name.

Psalm 96:1-2 (NIV
)

 Church Service Update

Church services will not be held on May 31st as previously planned. On May 28th, the El Paso County Commission approved a Variance for churches to resume services with some restrictions, such as social distancing, facial coverings, etc. This is the first step to reopening. The Variance now moves to the governor's office and the state health department for final approval. 
Our new target date to resume church services is Sunday, June 7. Hopefully, approval is granted within the next week or so.  Please pray that final approval is given next week so that we can meet the target date. Thanks for praying.

But I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost. For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
1 Corinthians 16:8-9

 

"We stand at a critical moment in history for the church. The door of opportunity is wide open for us to share the gospel through a variety of methods. As believers, we are obligated to carry out Christ's Great Commission. Be careful that neither busyness nor apathy keeps you from obedience." (Excerpt from In Touch Magazine, Dr. Charles F. Stanley, President)
