Who We Are

ROOTS is an umbrella ministry that brings individuals over 55 together for fellowship, service, education, and spiritual nurturing. We are committed to enjoying the Lord and His people in the church, community, and worldwide missions. We welcome you to join us.

Are you interested in fulfilling activities and opportunities to join in with others?  ROOTS has many offerings to choose from - ranging from single events to ongoing groups.

Groups and Ministries

Brunch Bunch

Brunch Bunch shares a meal in any one of many local restaurants, meeting the first Tuesday of each month.  Contact Nancy at 303.443.2640.

Cookies on Call

We provide cookies for receptions after funerals and other special events. Members keep three dozen cookies in their freezers and bring them to the church when needed. If you like to bake, this is a great ministry, and greatly appreciated by all! Contact  at 303.442.8535.

Landscape & Garden Team

We play in the dirt! Each Spring we plant the pots and beds surrounding the church, and tend the gardens weekly throughout the season.  If you would like to join us, contact  at 303.443.9849.

Learning for Living

ROOTS hosts seminars, classes, and workshops on various topics that relate to aging. In the past, we've had panels about moving, retirement, and care-giving and an Intergenerational Workshop with Pete Merconi.  Watch the Sunday Bulletins and All-Church emails for announcements of these classes.


Mariners is a program that promotes Christian fellowship. We meet the 3rd Friday of every month at 6:00 pm. at the church for potluck suppers and programs during the school year and host fun activities during the summer months.  Couples and singles are welcome! Contact at 303.953-1402.

On The Road Again

We take day or evening trips in the church van to museums, historical sites, and events. Contact: Sandi Woodward at 303.887.0177.

Prayer at First Pres

There are many opportunities for prayer at First Pres. Please  to see how you can pray or how you can be prayed for.


Bring your spouse and share a pleasant dinner with other couples. Groups of five or six couples gather each month in a member's home.  New groups are formed each fall. Prospectors is a great way to get acquainted while sharing food, devotions, and games. Contact: Dick & Ellen Weekley

Sewing Circle

The Sewing Circle is a place to gather wisdom and experience – in life and in creativity – as you sew, quilt, and knit alongside other women. All skill levels welcome! Thursdays: 8:30-11:30 am, Westminster Hall. Contact Judy at 303.402.6543.

Short-term mission trips & retreats  

International communities, places of beauty, and soulful retreats are just the beginning. ROOTS has taken three trips in the last three years to Cuba to work with disabled children and to volunteer on a farm. We love to travel! We'd love for you to join us on our adventures!  Contact Libby Brown at 303.402.6433.

Silver Threads

Meeting the third Tuesday of each month (September through May), the Silver Threads group gathers for a home-made lunch and program presentation.  Reservations are appreciated.  Contact  at 303.828.9380.

Technology Team

Are you struggling to keep up with technology? ROOTS can help! We partner people who need assistance with their computers, cameras, and phones with people who are willing to stop by and help them out.  Just let us know how we can help you, and we'll find you a techy person to help!  Contact Judy at 303.402.6453 if you're interested.

Work Krew

We meet on Thursdays every week to refurbish, repair, and improve the church facilities. It is very satisfying to know that you’ve helped keep this old church in tip-top shape - but the real reward may be the great coffee and doughnuts!  ALL skill levels are appreciated and useful.
