History of Capitol Heights Presbyterian Church
It started as the York Street Presbyterian Church. Organized in 1896 by 47 charter members. By 1911, the need for new facility became apparent, and three lots at the corner of 11th Avenue and Fillmore Streets were purchased for a new building.
Construction began in 1911 and cornerstone was laid later that year. The dedication was held in 1912. Shortly thereafter it was renamed to Capitol Heights Presbyterian Church.
In 1972 Capitol Heights approved the sharing of the church with the Ten-Thirty Catholic Community, a lay-led community founded in the spirit of Vatican II. The Ten-Thirty Community needed a permanent church home and Capitol Heights unanimously approved of the Ten-Thirty Catholic Community could share its space and expenses. We have enjoyed a joint team ministry, shared religious education and retreat experiences. Four times a year we worship together in ecumenical services . Dignity of Denver enriched our ecumenical life joining us in 1984 and sharing in ministry also.
In 1985 Capitol Heights sought to show love, respect, understanding, and sancturay to those fleeing from persecution in Central America.
In 1990 Capitol Heights made the decision to become a "More Light" church.
