Colorado congregation featured in Chronicle’s Churches That Work series
The Northwest Church of Christ in Westminster, Colo., is featured in the latest print edition of The Christian Chronicle.
The Colorado congregation is the 23rd church profiled in the Chronicle’s ongoing Churches That Work series:
WESTMINSTER, Colo. — On the first and third Sunday nights of each month, the Northwest Church of Christ assembles at the church building to sing, pray and hear a sermon.
On the second and fourth Sunday nights, members gather in each other’s homes for small-group Bible studies and devotionals.
Fifth Sunday nights are reserved for service projects.
The hybrid approach reflects the suburban Denver church’s effort to serve an intergenerational membership that runs the gamut from 20-something professionals to World War II veterans.
“It’s always been a very high priority for this eldership to not sacrifice one generation for the preferences of another,” said Ron Hanegan, one of the church’s five elders.
While one generation might favor a traditional service every Sunday night, a different generation might prefer home Bible studies each week, Northwest’s elders said.
The elders told The Christian Chronicle they strive to care for the needs of the entire congregation — and to make any change in an incremental way.
