Dear Church family,

This contains lots of information about what TRC will be doing in the upcoming weeks as we adjust to our new “normal”. Things may look a lot different but we do not want to lose our ability to be in community. While our building may be closed, our pastors and staff are continuing to work and if you need prayer, assistance, or have questions, please contact us and we will do our best to help. Phones and emails will continue to be answered (970-247-7777 and

We also encourage you to check in with friends and neighbors to see if they need anything. This is an incredible opportunity for The Church to be a light in our communities.

Don’t forget Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever”. He is the same good God and we can trust Him.

– TRC Pastors
Based on government recommendations about large gatherings and in the best interest of you and our Durango community as a whole, WE WILL MOVE TO ONLINE SERVICES ONLY ON SUNDAY, MARCH 22.



We will live-stream both worship and a teaching message at 9:30am. You will be able to find it on our Facebook Page (PLEASE interact!) and also on our website and app.

How we connect will look different, for sure, but we can still worship together if even virtually.

If you cannot tune in live please note that we also make a video and audio version of our Sunday message available by 1:00pm each Sunday on our website and on our App.


We ask that you access our Sunday service at your convenience.



We are planning and assessing what student ministry and kids ministry will look like as online, “distance” ministries. This week (Spring Break week) was scheduled to be an “off” week anyway for next gen ministries, so we are using this week to get a solid plan in place. Stay tuned.

Great Way to Stay Updated…
