Frequently Asked Questions

What phase are we in currently?

We are in Phase 2, and soon we’ll be in Phase 3. In Phase 2 we have doubled worship sizes in homes across our city to share with others what we’ve learned about worshiping well during this season.

Can my Life Group, Sunday Community or group meet on the First Pres campus?

Yes! Room reservations may now be requested for small groups to meet on campus. Please read guidelines below:
  • Rooms can accommodate small groups of up to 10 people.
  • Reservations must be made for all meetings (a seven-day notice is most helpful to coordinate the reservation and cleaning process).
  • A 60-minute room reservation request may be made between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
  • State laws and guidelines must be followed (masks, social distancing, etc).
  • Currently, we are striving to help your small group meet at the frequency that is best for your group, but we ask that you remain highly flexible as guidelines and room availability changes. Please confirm your repeating reservations with Ina each month.
  • Upon arrival, participants enter and check-in through the front desk.
  • Thank you for not sharing group meals at this time (potluck, for example). Catering, however, may be possible. Please confirm that your group's meal plans, if any, meet state laws and guidelines.

If your group does not meet the guidelines above, but you would like to make a special request, please do so knowing we want to serve you as best as we are able.

How to make a Room Reservation

Please contact Ina Meyer, Program Manager for Discipleship at   or 719-884-6117 with the following information:

  • Group leader name (first, last), contact phone and email.
  • First and last names of attendees, indicating couples, if any.
  • Group size.
  • Date, time and frequency preference.
  • A brief group bio (Life Group, Bible study group, etc.)

How can I participate in Phase 2?

During Phase 2 of the First Pres Lives Here plan, learn how to use online tools to worship well where you are, with whomever you're with!

Staff is working hard to get ready to open our building for in-person worship, but until then we’ll use the online instruments of praise in our homes, living room, with friends--and it’s up to you.

What if I don't have a group of people to worship with? 

We would love to get you connected with a First Pres Worship Host Site or Life Group meeting in homes around the city. Let us know you’re interested by completing this form.

Other churches are gathering. Why isn't First Pres opening for worship right now? 

Our role as the church from the inception is to be a partner with our city. Christ has called us to be a pillar that our city can lean on. City leaders have asked organizations, including churches, to please telecommute as much as possible. We’re cooperating.

Every Sunday that we set aside our personal preferences to serve the well-being of our fellow citizens, our credibility to share the Gospel with them grows.

Will Children's and Student online resources still be available?

Yes! Our Family Ministries team has gone online with Sunday videos, Online Small Groups, daily devotionals and socially distanced events so that you can bring church home for your kids and students.

I'm at risk. How do I gather with others?

We understand that some may have health concerns about gathering with other people right now and recommend that you discern who you feel comfortable gathering with. Our Caring Ministry team will continue calling and checking in.

Worship Host Sites

First Pres Lives Here gives those who are ready the chance to worship with other households in a Worship Host Site. Whatever season of life that you're in, there's a place for you to connect with a community of people to walk through this season.

This summer God is on the move and so are we! Throughout the summer we are focusing on where God is moving by growing in our faith individually, in community, and as a family! While this summer will look different than most, we can't wait to see what God will do.
