  • Pastor Philip Reimers from Evergreen’s Church of the Cross is going to Africa for six weeks this summer with an ambitious goal: to help engineer a sustainable future for refugees of war.

    Three or four years ago, Reimers met Denver Pastor Mwenebitu Lupande, a refugee from the Democratic Republic of the Congo who fled from the country’s rampant violence to set up his own church in the U.S. His church, Come to Jesus Ministries, is for refugees of all African nations, and sermons are delivered in Swahili.

    The county is seeking a civil penalty between $500 and $1,000. The trial date is set for 8:30 a.m. Jan. 24.

    Rebecca Klymkowsky, assistant county attorney for Jeffco, said she couldn’t comment on the ongoing litigation, but that the lawsuit involved a zoning issue with the church’s property at 10101 Highway 73 in Conifer.

    A call to Journey Church was not returned at press time.

This year the Chorale has forged a collaboration with Rocky Mountain BrassWorks to present “A Holiday Fantasy,” which opens Dec. 13.

  • It all happened so fast.

    One second the young elk buck was sticking his nose through the half-closed safety netting surrounding Greg and Shauna Chase’s backyard trampoline, licking snow off the canvas. The next he was bouncing around inside it, looking equal parts surprised, confused and delighted.

    “It never happened before,” says Greg. “We have elk in the yard all the time, but they never showed any interest in the tramp.”
