The beginning of Covenant Reformed is traced back to the late 1990s when several families in Pueblo and Pueblo West began to discover the doctrines of grace from a reformed and covenantal perspective. As there was no 'reformed' church in Pueblo or Pueblo West these families travelled to Colorado Springs to worship, but maintained a weekly Bible study in Pueblo West.
In 2002 some of these same families began to meet in Pueblo for worship each Sunday. The first Sunday meeting at the Holiday Inn on I-25 in Pueblo 5 families participated in a time of public worship with various men from the PCA travelling down from Colorado Springs each Sunday to lead that time of worship. The church moved from the Holiday Inn to Skyview Middle School in Pueblo West, then to Prairie Winds Elementary School and to the Pueblo West Plaza.
In 2002 Rev. Spellman was called to the church as stated supply to CRPC from Rocky Mountain Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). At the time he was living with his wife, Dawn, in Colorado Springs and serving as Chaplain and Bible Instructor of Evangelical Christian Academy. He travelled down each weekend for four years to lead worship each Lord's Day. In 2006 he was called to Covenant Reformed as a church planter/evangelist and at that time took up permanent residence here in Pueblo West to help organize and establish Covenant Reformed Mission as a particular Church.
The congregation of Covenant Reformed petitioned Rocky Mountain Presbytery in January of 2012 to be established as a particular church in the PCA. On April 29, 2012 a commission from Presbytery came to Pueblo to organize CRPC as a particular church. At that time men who had been called by the congregation to serve as Ruling Elder were ordained and installed. Our organizing pastor, Rev. Spellman, was also called to be our full-time pastor.
In 2014, Pastor Spellman announced that he was accepting a call to pastor a PCA congregation in Mississippi. While he had no desire to leave CRPC, the move would support better health for his wife. We were all saddened to say good-bye to the Spellmans.
A pulpit search committee was formed, which concluded its arduous task in January, 2015. Our present pastor, Rev. Matt Eide, accepted the call and moved to Pueblo West in April of that year. The church has since moved worship services to space provided by River of Grace Church, across the street from the Pueblo West Plaza, where the church office remains.
By God's abundant grace we continue to grow in the knowledge of Christ, praying that he would manifest his glory to us and through us, making CRPC a testament to his great goodness and a blessing to our neighbors, communities, and the world.
Soli Deo Gloria!
