Your chance to join God’s work in Strasburg, Colorado…
Welcome to StrasburgCOC.org, the web home of, Lord willing, the Strasburg Church of Christ.
Because although we believe the Lord wants a Churches of Christ plant in Strasburg, Colorado to serve Strasburg and the surrounding communities, we aren’t presupposing anything. Instead, we are moving forward cautiously and prayerfully…this web site being one of the first steps.
Why yet another church?
We serve a Lord who accepts anyone who will follow Him. As such, His children have different preferences in worship styles along with varying theologic views. The Churches of Christ provide a unique take on both, and we are fairly convinced it would serve Christ’s body well to provide it as an option here on the high plains east of Denver. (From Strasburg it takes 30-45 minutes to travel to the closest Churches of Christ congregation. We believe local churches serve their communities best.)
Who are the Churches of Christ?
The Churches of Christ is not a denomination; we are a loose association of autonomous churches with similar beliefs. We turn to the Bible and the New Testament church to inform our liturgy and our doctrines. If you are looking for a Christ-centered traditional church that trusts Scripture, not man, to reveal God’s teachings…then you should check us out.
Want more information about who the Churches of Christ are and our beliefs? As mentioned, there is no denomination, so there is no central authority to define a set of “approved” doctrines. However, as long as you take them with a grain of salt, here are Internet Ministries’ description and the Wikipedia page for Churches of Christ.
Although the founding members of the church will decide on we use as our congregations’s statement of faith, a summary of our approach is:
The Strasburg Church of Christ wants all people to find truth, comfort, and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ without telling anyone what to believe. Instead, we point them to Jesus by way of Scripture, trusting each individual’s own ability, aided by the Holy Spirit, to discover what the Bible teaches.
Well, we are kind of hopin’ God is. 🙂
Having said that, Alan Fahrner, former minister of the Antrim Church of Christ in Antrim, New Hampshire (and recent transplant to Strasburg) is leading the local effort.
When will it start?
We will have our first service Sunday, August 21st.
When and where will you meet?
Bible study at 9:30 and service at 11:00 every Sunday at The Pizza Shop, 56551 East Colfax Avenue, Strasburg, CO 80136.
Until we outgrow it. 🙂

Please pray for us?
Whether you join us in our mission to Strasburg and the surrounding area or not, please pray for us. We want to do the Lord’s will…and it could be that He actually doesn’t want this church planted here on the high plains. Then, of course, He just might…and He might want you to be a part of it. We thank you for lifting us up before the Lord in your prayers.
