Established in 1997, Risen Lord Lutheran Church has always been about community more than a building. Over the years we created worship space in two different community center buildings, a theater, and a storefront. In 2017, the people of St Laurence Episcopal Church invited Risen Lord Lutheran Church to share building space with them. Since then both congregations have been energized by building relationships, sharing ministries, and occasionally worshiping together, all while maintaining our unique Lutheran and Episcopal identities.

From the beginning, Risen Lord Lutheran Church has provided a spiritual home and welcoming community for people all along the Hwy 285 corridor, from Bailey to Morrison and even ‘down the hill’. We are connected to the community through Interfaith Food Pantry, Susannah’s Hope (a coat ministry), Mountain Resource Center, and PeaceWorks.

We gather for worship at 9:00 am on Sundays.

Holy Communion is always a part of our worship.

You will find us on Barkley Road, just off Hwy 285, in Conifer.

What we mean when we say
Togetherness + All Generations + Serving Community + Being Church

Togetherness: We value community. Being together strengthens us and stretches us. It is part of why we love sharing space with the people of St Laurence Episcopal. Together we laugh, pray, enjoy food and fellowship, draw closer to God and each other.

All Generations: We value the gifts of every generation and celebrate that our community includes people of all ages. This means that our primary faith formation activities are designed around having all generations together, especially in worship and for an annual Camp for All experience.

Serving Community: We value the communities in which we live, therefore we seek to be connected with people and organizations in those communities, adding our skills and resources to their efforts to serve others.

Being Church: We value gathering for worship, sharing the sacraments, holding others in prayer, knowing God more deeply, exploring mystery and wonder, seeking over certainty, faith over fear.

Risen Lord Lutheran Church is a congregation in the Rocky Mountain Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
