We are blessed to live in such a beautiful valley. We have several individual areas surrounding Steamboat Springs that we live in such as North Routt, Catamount, the Sanctuary and even Strawberry Park. Strawberry Park is a unique neighborhood that is the entrance to Buffalo Pass and Strawberry Park Hot Springs. There are numerous homes on several acres that are beautiful. In addition, it is the same area where Euzoa Bible Church also owns acres and worship services are held every Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
It should be a sad time in our lives when a new church is not accepted in its community. It has been stated that the church should consider a downtown area to build the new church. Meaning it is a business. Shouldn’t church be considered a way of life?
I know how threatened some homeowners must feel. In today’s society don’t we want our kids to appreciate all aspects of life and behave appropriately. It won’t happen without the prayers and people that surround us. Everyone has their own beliefs and ways to worship. All our lives change every time a tragedy affects those around us. Columbine school, Sept. 11, etc. Worship is important.
I challenge those residents who live in Strawberry Park to attend a service at Euzoa Bible Church. You will be amazed at the Saturday evening attendees. This service is growing more and more and continues to reach out to young people. Or attend the Sunday service for a more traditional service and see what the church is really all about. Did you know that baptisms take place in the pond located on the premises? How cool is that!
I also challenge those of you who attend Euzoa Bible Church to look around you when you drive to church and respect and share in the beauty that residents have built.
I ask you, residents of Strawberry Park, to be part of Euzoa Bible Church’s quest to build a new church, one in which you would be proud to have in your neighborhood. Be part of the solution and I guarantee you will be truly blessed.
