To all who are weary and need rest; to all who are lonely and want friendship; to all who mourn and need comfort; to all who pray, and to all who do not, but ought; to all who sin and need a Savior; and to all whosoever will – this Church opens wide the door and says in the name of the Lord Jesus. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.  (I Chronicles 16:29)

St. Luke 14:21 Day

Mark your calendars!

"...Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind."

We will be serving up to 250 homeless clients.   Each homeless person that comes through on that day will receive a small ziploc bag of personal items.  In September will be collecting toiletries which will consist of toothbrushes, tooth paste, soap, lotion, shampoo, etc. We are always in need of shoes.  Please start collecting items.  Our goal is to collect 250 pairs of men's shoes.  Please help us to reach this goal by bringing your shoes and placing them in the box in the prayer room..

Thank you,

Rev. Thomas Curry and Sis. Cynthia Bronson Co-Chairpersons

Zion Baptist Church then

Zion Baptist Church Present Day

The oldest African American Church in Denver.

A Colorado Historical Landmark.

Zion’s members have played sterling roles in our city, state, and nation. They have been ex-slaves, laborers, politicians, preachers, teachers, writers, musicians, artists, lawyers, doctors, activists, and many other folk. In many cases they have been the first to act upon and reach for opportunities that traditionally had been denied our people.


Zion Baptist church was founded by a small group of people that came from other territories and towns. They came to Colorado with limited resources, little education, and wagons filled with determination. Historical records recognize November 15, 1865 as Zion’s official date of origin.
