Grace Fellowship is a Biblically based, non-denominational Christian church in Lake City, Colorado. Our mission statement is a simple one: Love Jesus, Love who Jesus loves, and Love the mission of Jesus. Whether you live in Lake City year-round, or are just passing through, we invite you to come share in what God is doing here.
What To Expect
Casual, Come As You Are Environment. Come as you are… no need to dress up. Our services last about two hours.
Home-based Meetings. As a missional church, we aspire to be well integrated into our community through a structure of smaller groups that meet in homes throughout Lake City. These groups are typically from 10 to 15 persons, and create a friendly, family atmosphere in all of our meetings, in which all are welcome.
Summer Outreach. Since Lake City receives a huge influx of visitors in the summer, from June through September we meet on Sundays in an outdoor worship service venue at the Sportsman’s BBQ Station (Texaco) Backyard, 173 S. Gunnison Avenue, with a full worship team and traditional preaching.
Intergenerational. We believe that God intends all of us to worship together and learn of Him together as much as possible. Thus, we work hard to find creative ways to incorporate entire families into our meetings. This can be challenging, but is refreshingly enriching as well.
Good Music: We invite God to move in our hearts as we worship Him through singing. When we sing, we sing TO God, not just about Him. We believe that God meets us in a special way when we come together in worship.
Biblical Teaching: We teach the Bible in a way that relates to everyday life. We believe that the teaching of God’s Word should always lead us into deeper relationship with God and greater faith in Him, and equip us for His mission for us as His people. We desire to grow you closer towards Jesus and into all that God has created you to be as a person “on mission” in Christ’s church.

I was born in Alaska but spent most of my growing up in Phoenix, AZ. Having a great love of travel, and adventure I bounced around a lot, both living and working in numerous places but also traveling extensively in the US and internationally. I have lived in Lake City full time since 1999 and started a construction company a few years after I moved here. God richly blessed me in that endeavor and even more so with a wonderful wife Emily who I met in Lake City, we were married in 2007 and together we continue to lay down roots in our little mountain town. I was raised in a Christian home and became a believer at a young age; however, I did not fall deeply in love with Jesus until later in life. I was invited to be an elder at Grace Fellowship in 2017 and have been serving here ever since. God has given me many opportunities to grow, the most recent one is shutting down Lake Fork Home Builders at the height of my career, to spend more time in the word and focusing on God’s plans for our little church and its body.
I was born and raised in Junction City, Kansas. I left home at 18. In 1976 I was married to Annie. I was 19, and she was 18. We both became Christians shortly before we were married. We had our first child (Karen) in 1977 and our second (Kristen, a boy) in 1978. We were in a Christian band for several years – we were horrible. My career caused us to move around the country following opportunities that arose. Annie was a stay-at-home mom who homeschooled our kids. We now have two grandchildren, and we are retired. We live in Lake City, Colorado, full-time. After 45 years as a Christian and many of these years spent in church leadership, I’ve come to one basic conclusion: Jesus loves me this I know, for the bible tells me so, little ones to him belong, for I am weak, but He is strong.
