History of a Pioneer Church. Monument, Colorado Community Presbyterian Church. Celebrating 125 years (1874-1999)

Established in 1874 by famed Presbyterian circuit rider Reverend Sheldon Jackson, the Monument Community Presbyterian Church has been welcoming people for worship and fellowship for 125 years. Learn how God has sustained this church through the pioneer times, the roaring '20's, the depression, wars, and the urban movement.

The importance of our history is the witness and service of the previous generations for the generations to come.
