10 a.m. Worship
A welcoming and loving community
bound together by a common faith
in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
Rev. Les Avery, Guest in the Pulpit

Life from beginning to end requires us to let go. The challenge of doing so in a positive rather than a negative way may well determine the amount of joy we will experience.
Les came to Denver in 1953 to attend Seminary. After graduation his ministerial career was spent at three different parishes in the Denver area. For twenty two years he ministered at St. James Presbyterian Church in Littleton retiring as Senior Minister and Head of Staff in 1993. Since retirement he has served as Interim Pastor at several Denver churches and has been the designated preacher at other churches while pastors have been on sabbaticals. Les is a retired Supervisor of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) as well as Diplomat in the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy (CPSP). Les is an avid bicyclist, having peddled across the United States and other parts of the world, clocking more than 100,000 miles on his bike since retiring. After selling their mountain home in Evergreen, Les and Jackie moved to Quincy Park in southeast Denver in 2002. They have six children, fourteen grandchildren, and eight grandchildren.
