Thank you neighbors!

June 2018:  The church is surrounded by road construction and dust, but despite all that it looks radiant with yellow and purple flowers alongside new little plants and a transplanted tree and bush. Our little church is a joy to behold! 

This did not come without effort and love. Volunteers prepared the yard last spring and planted. Over the past year, people have mulched, weeded, watered (toting it onsite in jugs!), installed path lights, swept the dirt off the steps, hung Christmas lights, shoveled snow, and made financial donations.  Vernon found a large crop of thistle up behind the outhouses and pulled all he could find. 

Please join us in thanking our neighbors: 
Anne, Antoinette, Darian, Doug, Jeff, Karen, 
Kay, Larry, Marti, Michelle G., Mike E., Peter, 
Sherry, Steve, and Vernon
We are truly enjoying the beauty of their labor.  

Whenever you hike up the "Church Road" 
please look for and destroy all invasive weeds!

August 2018:  The Boulder County Commissioners approved our Historic Landmark Rehabilitation Grant request for painting the exterior. We are waiting for the drainage work to be finished so that we can begin soon.

Our Church

The Little Church in the Pines is a community spiritual center and Colorado non-profit corporation located in Salina, Colorado, an historic mining camp. The church building is maintained by a small diverse membership and can be reserved for worship services, weddings, lectures, etc. - any typical activity found in traditional churches. The primary difference is that this church is not limited to use by a single religion. All religions are welcome. There are fourteen pews which can seat around seventy people.

The Estey Organ was built in 1884-1885 for a family in Greenville, Illinois. In 1905, it was sent to the Loveland Presbyterian Church, and in 1949 that church donated it to The Little Church in the Pines. There is also a ca. 1897 piano (last tuned in March 2010).

The church is approximately 18 minutes from Canyon and Broadway. Head west on Canyon to Four Mile Canyon Drive. Go 4.8 miles, take the right fork, and drive 4/10 mile up Gold Run Road. The church is on the right at 414 Gold Run Road. Parking is very limited. For additional parking, drive 1/10 mile further and park at the Salina Schoolhouse.

If you are interested in reserving our chapel, please contact Rev. Kay Cook at kaycook74@gmail.com We would love to show you our beautifully restored chapel!
