By the word affirming, we signify our support and celebration of all human relationships based on commitment, loyalty, love & mutual respect.
On February 1, 2008, the church hired Music Director Rosanna Rains. Rosanna came to us after an eleven-year stint as Choir Director at the Washington Park United Church of Christ. Rosanna holds a bachelor's degree in music and a graduate degree in psychology. In addition to her experience directing church choirs, Rosanna has taught music in the public schools. She plays the piano and the flute and is experienced in conducting handbells. We feel excited and privileged to have Rosanna as our Music Director.
Nancy Conner is doing a terrific job as organist!

Our Pipe Organ
The Wheat Ridge congregation, United Church of Christ, has a Wicks pipe organ with three manuals—Choir, Great, and Swell; and Pedal. There are twenty ranks (tonal colors: flute, string, diapason, and reeds).
The purpose of this organ is to promote worship. The main use is to support the congregation each Sunday in singing the hymns. Since the Lord gave you your voice, give it back in songs of praise!
Another purpose for the organ is special music: preludes and postludes, accompaniments for the choir, solos, etc.
— Thomas C. Nicholson, former Organist
