Avenue Church, Aurora, Colo., the newest Mennonite Brethren church plant in the U.S., began holding Sunday worship services in late 2016 and is scheduled to officially launch February 12, 2017.
Being planted as a daughter church of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church of Denver (EECD) in Aurora, this new multi-ethnic church targets the next generation. Music is contemporary and worship services are in English. Other partners in the plant are the Southern District Conference (SDC) and Mission USA.
Church planter David Yirdaw says, “Our heart is to be an authentic community of Christ-followers living out the Spirit-filled life together. As we experience God’s presence, grow in the knowledge of the Bible and faithfully serve one another, we grow in community and challenge one another, in relationship, to live lives that point to Christ and His love for us.”
