Most responsibilities are similar in nature and execution across both churches. The pastors have an established relationship and communication with each other; they recognize the shared need for this position and are aligned on the position. Both churches are in the same church body -- ELCA Evangelical Lutheran Church in America -- and are Reconciling in Christ congregations who celebrate the diversity of all people.

The Office Coordinator will provide a friendly and welcoming interface with members, visitors, neighbors, building partners, and the general public. They will perform general office administrative duties to support the pastors, staff, and congregations. They will coordinate all communication (congregational and outer community). They will oversee building use, which includes coordinating contract employees and serving as the main point of contact for volunteers and building partners.

Welcoming You, Wherever You Are on the Journey of Faith

Maybe you've driven by our building on Colorado Blvd many times. It's a wonderful space, but as we've all learned, the church is not a building - not really. It is community of people loved by God, called and sent to care for one another and for the world around them. Multi-generational, we worship as newborns and nonagenarians. We sing together, pray together, explore the Word of God together, serve together, and live in the mystery of a God who is in, with and under all that is.

We believe that scripture is true and to be taken seriously, but not always to be understood literally. We participate in an ancient form of worship that is not dull and distant but speaks to the deepest places of our hearts and connects us with Christians throughout time and space.

We believe that God does not discriminate and neither do we. All are welcome in this place we call our church home. We would be privileged to have you join us for worship on Sunday.

We are a Reconciling in Christ congregation of the Rocky Mountain Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Come and worship - and discover more about Jesus and about yourself as beloved of God and disciple of Christ.
