A Story of Mercy
Littleton Christian Church began by God's sheer mercy after the closure of New Community Christian Church. We aim to be a Gospel-obsessed, simple, God-honoring, Bible-teaching, and unifying local church that exists for God's glory and Littleton's good. The first service of LCC was September 6, 2009, on historic Main Street in Littleton. If you'd like to know more of the story of these beginnings, particularly related to the transition from New Community to Littleton Christian, please contact Pastor Mike.
We are grateful members of the Presbytery of the West of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. God has graciously allowed connections with a local group of praying churches from several denominations who seek unity among the Church and the peace of our city. Highlights of our story include growing relationships with North Littleton Promise, Love In the Name of Christ, GraceFull Cafe, the Denver Institute for Faith and Work, and the fine city of Littleton. Each of these relationships is a gift.
In 2013, we were inited by one of those praying churches, Mission Hills, to join in an effort to develop a community center in North Littleton. We were humbled and thrilled to be invited to move our gatherings into this community center and join in the effort to serve our city evermore tangibly. Through the incredible generosity of individuals at that church and the untiring work of their staff, Mission Hills completed the Life Center on October 25, 2015. The first Sunday in this new space was November 1, 2015. Praise God for his good work.
Every year we become more captivated with the Gospel of Grace, the invitation of our Just and Merciful God to be reconciled to him through Christ and be filled with his Spirit for his glory. We find our greatest joy in the Feast every Sunday, where young and old, rich and poor, men and women, people of every ethnic background, are welcome to partake in the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. We seek to keep the whole story in mind, and celebrate humility, membership, and generosity: freely we've received, freely we give.
