Get Connected

Big Church. Small Community. We were created to be in relationship with others, but in a big church, it can be difficult to know where to start. At Cherry Hills, we feel Section Communities are a great way for you to start connecting with others and begin experiencing life and fulfilling community together. Search the list below for a community designed for you.

SATURDAY AT 5P

Twentyish

Section A
This era of life contains some of the most unexpected twists, turns and key decisions that we will ever face. The best way to experience these years in and around our twenties is by being a part of a thriving community of friends. Regardless of where you are in your faith, you are welcome in our Section Community. Come as you are. Build new friendships. We’re all in this together. Contact: Abbie and Colton Johnson

Families Connected Through Serving

Section B
We are families who want to impact relationships in our community and long to build values that are more than just achievement.

Married & Family Life

Section D
Whether you are newly married and just starting a family, a single parent, or in the thick of trying to balance family life, we encourage you to join us on Saturday evenings.

Contact: Jon & Cathy Widmier

First Responders

Section E
The life of a police officer, firefighter or emergency medical services provider can be exciting and challenging. Just as Isaiah answered God’s call in Isaiah 6:8, we as First Responders answer our community’s call with a resounding, “Here am I. Send me!” We love our calling but, in reality, we know it can take a toll. Our First Responders need a safe haven where they and their families can come together with others who understand this lifestyle. No matter where you are in your faith, we create experiences where you can build authentic friendships, explore faith in a safe environment, and support the First Responder community. Contact: Tim and Amy Guthrie

Thirtyish

Here’s what to expect: a genuine welcome, real connections and empowering community - a place to be known and to have tons of fun together. You are invited to build this community where, in every walk of life, we are learning to live like Jesus and celebrate the goodness of God. We’d love for you to journey with us!

Come join us if you are serving, have served, have children who have served or if you just want to make a Christian impact on military members and their families. Contact: Wes Cockman

Empty Nesters

Section D
Kids and grandkids are a wonderful thing, but being empty nesters is our reward, a time of celebration and reflection and a chance to reconnect with our spouse and friends. Please join us as we unite with other vital, active adults as we grow in faith and pursue the next magical chapters in our lives. Contact: Carolynn Erickson

Set the Captives Free

We welcome any and all, understanding that while we have all been impacted by the brokenness of life, there is hope and wholeness for the future! Contact: Charles Frederick

Generations

Section E
We are your neighbors - a community of people in different stages of life: families, singles, younger, older and somewhere in-between, looking to share experiences, break down stereotypes, and walk through life together.

Contact: Ramona Spilman

Married Life

Section G

Families with Young Children

Section H
Do you have young children: infants, toddlers, early elementary? Are you new to parenthood? Is your life as chaotic as ours? Being a parent is such an incredible gift, but at the same time it can be challenging. We weren’t intended to go on this parenting journey alone.

Families

Section L
Raising children of all different ages is full of challenges and sheer joy all at the same time! You are invited to join this community of parents across the whole life spectrum; some of us are swaddling babies, others braving the cold of spring soccer games and others teaching teenagers how to drive. But we are all coming together to support one another, build friendships, help our children develop a life long faith, and to just have fun. Come join us and connect with others on this wonderful journey of parenting. Contact: Dave and Jenny Estabrook

Grandparents

Sometimes they come to visit and sometimes they come to live with us, but grandchildren always offer an opportunity for positive impact. Regardless of the circumstances, grandparents are uniquely qualified to be an important resource to our children's children as well as to the children of the community at large. Dubbed "Grand Central," this Section Community is a dynamic celebration of this time-honored role and is a place where we grow in faith and serve together as grandparents.
