Located at 1070 Reese St. Silverton, Colorado.  Corner of Reese Street and 11th Street.

First Congregational Church is one of the oldest Congregational Churches in Colorado.  It was  established November 11, 1878 in Silverton, Colorado.  The sanctuary was dedicated on July 10, 1881.  It has served the valley ever since. 

Our church acted as the "host" sanctuary for most of the various religions as they settled in Silverton. The first Catholic Mass in Silverton on December 24, 1882 was held in our sanctuary. The Episcopal Society regularly met in the church. The Baptist church also held services in the sanctuary. The building has also been the site of many municipal and cultural groups. Historically, the Theater Group and the Great Western Rocky Mountain Brass Band have used our sanctuary for practices and rehearsals.

Worship services are every Sunday morning at 9 a.m. 

We are a church with open doors, open hearts, and open minds.  Wherever you are on your faith journey, you are always welcome here. 

Join us to worship God in this beautiful, historic church!
