Canyons Community Church, formerly Christ the King Evangelical Presbyterian Church, opened its doors earlier this year at its new location, 2.1 miles north of Founders Parkway and I-25 at 4825 Crowfoot Valley Road.
The newly repurposed church building is something that the congregation has looked forward to ever since they began meeting in the gym of the DCS Montessori School on Castle Pines Parkway in 2003. The church began as a satellite church of Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church and formally became its own church in 2005.
Church leaders spent a great deal of time looking for property in just the right location. In January 2010, the church purchased 14 acres of land and construction on the building was completed in April of this year.
“Our church is a multi-purpose facility that includes a welcome area/coffee bar, office and meeting space, children’s classrooms, and a worship/community center,” said the church’s office administrator Linda Weber. “In this location, we look forward to expanding our existing programs. It also gives us a huge opportunity to enlarge our youth program and add more ministry opportunities for the local community,” said Weber.
After seven years at the Castle Pines location, church members decided to change their name to symbolize the enthusiasm for the new times ahead at a new church location.
Led by new pastor Mark Skalberg, Canyons Community Church offers children’s, youth, women’s, and men’s ministries, in addition to its weekly worship services. For more information, call 303-663-5751 or visit www.canyonscc.org.
