This Sunday we will not be having church services as usual because of the flooding in our area, but we do ask you to join us in serving our community in the name of Jesus. God has put us here in this place at this time, so that we can be His hands and feet to our hurting community.
Our church building, the St. Vrain Memorial Building, is being used as an evacuation center for those displaced by the floods. I spent the day down there providing pastoral care and every corner of the building is occupied with evacuees. There are 130 families living there right now, around 200 people sleeping on cots, and this will be the case until Monday at least.
I have been in touch with the Boulder County Emergency Operations Center (EOC), who is currently running the evacuation centers at the Memorial Building and Niwot High School. I am working with them to find the best way that our congregation can serve our community, as surely there will be many great needs in the days and weeks to come.
For now, please continue to check back on The City for more details, as we receive them, on how we can best serve – perhaps even this weekend.
Please be in prayer for Longmont and our surrounding communities. If you have a need, please let us know on The City or by emailing us at
