New: Air Purification System!
An advanced air filtration and purification system has been introduced to our worship spaces, and additional filtration units are rriving soon! These "PureAir" systems "remove 99.99% of aerosols which contain viruses and other germs."

Thank you to the anonymous donor who gifted these filtration units to the Chapel!
Outreach Fair October
COVID will not derail Snowmass Chapel's 4th annual Outreach Fair! 

Did you know that thanks to our generous donors, Snowmass Chapel contributes over $100,000 annually to help those in need? 

We would like you to get to know some of these organizations that we think are just great! If you feel called to learn more about any of the organizations, to refer friends, or to make donations directly to these valuable community partners, please visit their websites and tell them Snowmass Chapel sent you! 
One measure of a society is how it cares for its most vulnerable members. At the Aspen Homeless Shelter, the mission is to keep people alive, safe and fed while they are homeless, help them access resources to meet their needs, and assist with a hand-up in transition to stability and self-reliance. Each person that is cared for saves our community important resources in unnecessary emergency room visits, law enforcement interventions, and other emergency measures. 

The 210 individuals who used the shelter last year are locals, and many are employed though lack access to affordable housing. The Shelter operates a day center and meal program out of the Pitkin County Human Services Building, and after previously utilizing space at St. Mary’s Catholic Church and the Brush Creek Lot summer tent camp, is looking for overnight space for the coming winter.

Aspen Skiing Company’s Caring for Community Fund donates two-for-one matching funds and supports locals with:

  • Health care, with specific emphasis on improving access to mental health and addiction counseling services
  • Crisis support – food aid, emergency relocation services, legal assistance
  • Safe and affordable housing
  • Educational and job training resources, with specific emphasis on programs serving children and young adults

The fund is directed by an employee board where they learn strategic philanthropy on the fly to better understand our community's needs and assets. Long after an employee serves on the board they continue to play active roles in the organizations and issues they learn about.

Last Sunday's Message: Bring it to LIFE
Robert moved us on Sunday with his sermon on compassion, “the root to intimacy with Jesus.”

Towards whom in your life can you be more compassionate? Ultimately this will move you closer to the heart of Jesus.
Compassion takes intention. Where can you show up with intention?

Compassion is replacing the “I” with “we” and the “them” with “us.”

Don’t forget that God, and ourselves, need our compassion also. Action is compassion and compassion is action - how can we live it towards God and ourselves.
Our entire playlist from last week is available on our YouTube page.

Children and Families
Kids and Teens!
You’ve been through a lot these past few months. We’ve been praying for you and thinking of you and we want you to know it. There are goodie bags, just for you, in the Creekside room at the Chapel. Grab a bag and choose a gratitude journal or sticker book on the table to go along with it. Enjoy your treats and know God loves you, and so do we. Here’s a sneak peek of the good stuff inside.
NEW! Let's Color
We invite all kids and kids at heart to participate in our COLORING wall. We will release new printables frequently, for you to color at home or during church and display in the Creekside windows.

Printed copies will be available to you on Sunday morning, or click here to print at home.

Did you know you can listen to sermons easy-peasy, after the fact, via podcast? Just open up your podcast app and search Snowmass Chapel. You can listen then and there, or download sermons in the blink of an eye to listen to later, when you won’t have wifi access.
