About First Presbyterian Church

  • Organized in 1878, the First Presbyterian Church of Leadville has a long history of proclaiming in the high country God’s amazing grace and extravagant love for all people through Jesus Christ. Originally a downtown church (the old red brick church) we moved to our present location in 1968.

    We are located at West Third & McWethy Streets on the West side of town next to the Community Park and Mineral Belt Trail.

    During the summer months (weather permitting) we worship in our outdoor chapel. Our worship offers a blend of music including traditional hymns with pipe organ and contemporary songs with keyboard and guitar. We also enjoy the music of our choir. Communion is served every Sunday for all who trust in Jesus Christ as their Savior regardless of church membership. Nursery care is available during worship.

Community Activities

  • Food pantry – In 2020 we have partnered with the St. George Episcopal church’s food access program. Please visit St. George’s at 4th and Pine St. for a hot meal 4 days a week, and a very large “grocery store” where you can get fresh food, meat, and nonperishables. We do keep a few nonperishable foods available at our church for persons in our community who call or stop by. We also coordinate with the Matchless Treasures thrift shop in town for needed clothing and household goods.

    St. George Episcopal Church Community Meals Program – our church helps with the Thanksgiving Dinner, and occasionally provides meat for the hot meals program and non-perishables and personal hygiene items for the food access program.

    Presbyterian Church (USA) – We participate in the mission endeavors of the Presbytery of Denver the Synod of the Rocky Mountains and the General Assembly of our denomination through our monthly financial pledge and through the One Great Hour of Sharing special offering. Through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance we respond financially to natural disasters throughout the world, as well as large-scale traumatic incidents.

    Uganda, Africa – Called Christians is a ministry we support in partnership with Beverly Rich, our missionary from Leadville. Their outreaches include Sunday morning worship and weekly Bible studies, youth ministry, a pastor’s training school, the planting of churches in remote villages, and a prison ministry.

    Malawi, Africa – Our church is one of the original partners of the Malawi Mission Partnership of the Presbytery of Denver working with the pastors group in the village of Mtsiliza near the capital city of Lilongwe. Our work entails empowering the village pastors through Veritas Biblical training, continuation of their schooling, and a sustainable agricultural program.

    Visiting Mission Teams – First Presbyterian Church is host to many summer mission teams who stay in our youth cabin and serve in Leadville and the surrounding Lake County area. Projects have included assisting elderly residents with much-needed fix-up projects, yard cleanup, window washing, or painting around their homes. Sometimes groups have brought to Leadville VBS programs, youth retreats, and sports camps with a Bible-based theme.
