The Baha'i Community in Denver

The Denver Baha'i Community is learning how to bring the oneness of humankind into reality. We gather in homes and at the Baha'i Center of Metro Denver (221 S Bayuad) to hold devotional gatherings, classes for the spiritual education and empowerment of youth and children and to study The Creative Word. Everyone is encouraged to join us anytime.

Devotional Gatherings

Responding to the inmost longing of every heart to commune with its Maker, they carry out acts of collective worship in diverse settings, uniting with others in prayer, awakening spiritual susceptibilities, and shaping a pattern of life distinguished for its devotional character.

Spiritual Education

Aware of the aspirations of the children of the world and their need for spiritual education, they extend their efforts widely to involve ever-growing contingents of participants in classes that become centres of attraction for the young and strengthen the roots of the Faith in society. They assist junior youth to navigate through a crucial stage of their lives and to become empowered to direct their energies toward the advancement of civilization.

Study of the Creative Word

By embracing the diversity of the entire human family, they are engaged in systematic study of the Creative Word in an environment that is at once serious and uplifting.
