Table Mountain Church was a new church startup out of the Evangelical Free Church, and is connected to the Rocky Mountain District of Free Churches. The story of TMC begins in the summer of ’06, when a few families from Littleton partnered with a group in the Greenhorn Valley to “establish a biblically healthy reproducing church.”
Rob and Beth Chadwick, who had been involved in full-time church ministry for 16 years, felt God tugging on their hearts to help start a new church. After a week of “Church Plant Boot Camp” January 2006, and through much prayer and consultation, the decision was made to move forward in this adventure.
Weekly Sunday morning gatherings began in the fall of 2006 at the Colorado City Rec Center, along with community service projects, surveys, and a series of mailings inviting others in the community to join in. Over time TMC outgrew the Rec Center, moved to the Quonset Hut behind Los Cuervos, and when this space was no longer sufficient, TMC began meeting at the Rye HS.
In 2011, TMC had the opportunity to purchase the old Rye school building which formerly housed TR’s Country Store. A financial campaign was begun in the Fall of 2011 and the the purchase of the property was finalized in January 2012. The goal of TMC is to not only hold services in the new facility but to convert a portion of the property into a much-needed community center that would include a fully-functioning coffee shop and spaces available to the community for various events and activities.
In November of 2011, TMC moved out of “church plant” status to be recognized as a fully-functional church within the Rocky Mountain District of the Evangelical Free Church.
