Join Us For In-Person Worship on Sundays!

Providence has returned to in-person worship in the sanctuary on Sundays at 9:30am with precautions in place. Our protocols have been updated and can be found HERE. The service will also continue to be shared live over Zoom and posted to the website by Monday morning as well for those uncomfortable with or unable to join in-person.

Please Note: Pastor Dave will be on study leave from 5/17 to 5/23. Rev. Parker Smith will lead worship and preach this Sunday 5/23.

Memorial Service for Bill Baucum

We have learned that former Providence church member Bill Baucum passed away on May 13th, 2021. For those who may wish to remember him, a memorial service will be held on May 21st, 2021 at 10:30am at Grace Presbyterian Church in Highlands Ranch (9720 US Hwy 85 N Highlands Ranch, CO 80125).

Food Drive for the Parker Task Force

Thank you to everyone who has supported our food collections for the PTF! It is so important that we continue to support families in need during these challenging times. Our next food drive for the Task Force will be Sunday, June 6th. If you are participating in the service via ZOOM, donations can be brought in after the service between 10:30 and 11:30am. A list of their current needs can be found HERE. If you have any questions, please contact the church office. Thank you for your continued support of this important ministry.

Coffee and Conversation

Coffee and Conversation will resume on 5/25/21 at Providence Presbyterian Church at 9am. Coffee and Conversation gives us a chance to fellowship with one another and have a conversation with Pastor Dave about the sermon that was preached on Sunday. It is a time to share what impacted you most and ask questions. We hope you’ll join us!

Celebrating Graduating Seniors

Providence would like to celebrate and recognize all our graduating seniors from high school and college. If you are a graduating senior or a family member of one please contact Heather Krause at 303-766-5887 or Thanks and congratulations!

Gift Card Scams

It has been brought to our attention that another version of the gift card scam is going around again. A few church members have received scam emails or text messages purportedly from other members or Pastor Dave asking for “a favor” which then turns into a request to purchasing gift cards. THIS IS A SCAM! Providence staff members and volunteers will never ask anyone for urgent help buying any type of gift cards via email or text message. If you receive such an e-mail or text, do not reply or purchase anything they request. Call or email the church office to report the issue and block the offending number or email.

Also, please know that our accounts have not been “hacked”. Scammers simply copy contact information from public websites and then create new accounts that are designed to look very similar to the legitimate email address or phone number for other people you know. They then send emails or texts hoping that the urgency created in the email or text message will cause the recipients to overlook the fake phone number or email address.

If you have any questions or concerns about this please contact the church office at 720-851-6881 or Thank you.

Providence Financial Update

2021 Per Capita Assessment

Per Capita is one way we support the larger Presbyterian church as well as the local Presbytery, and it is a way we express our connectedness as the larger Church. This supports administrative expenses as well as a portion for the General Assembly. This assessment is based on the number of members at $32 per member, and paid by the church. If you would be willing to help with the cost of our assessment by contributing this for each member of your family, we would be most appreciative. Please make your check payable to the church, and put in the memo: Per Capita.

MidWeek Scripture Reflection

Psalm 98:1-3

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.
The Lord has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

Matthew 28:16-20

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
