Godliness with Contentment is Great Gain– Do you view your contentment as conditional to your health, goals, finances, spouse, kids or other things completely outside of your control? The Bible teaches that contentment isn’t conditional to anything outside of knowing God, and being fed and clothed. If you have those three things, consider yourself blessed! How we view our contentment shapes everything. Please listen if possible…
for we brought nothing into the world, and
we cannot take anything out of the world.
But if we have food and clothing,
with these we will be content.
1 Timothy 6:6-8 ESV
Our weekly time together includes worship and Bible Study. We lovingly provide infant and childcare for kindergarten and under during our Bible Study time as well as a dedicated class for elementary ages. Older children and youth join us as we aim to make our Bible Study time engaging and exciting for youth and adults!
Ten Peaks Church held our first service in June 2016. We meet every Sunday at 10 am at the Silverthorne Library. Please come at 9:30 am for coffee, breakfast snacks, and great fellowship!
Ten Peaks Church is non-denominational and welcomes believers and skeptics to learn more about Jesus. We are also blessed to have the support of two like-minded churches who are fully-behind our vision:
Great Divide Calvary Chapel, a Calvary Chapel-affiliated church in Breckenridge, has made a commitment to help Ten Peaks Church as the Lord guides and provides. We are ever-so-thankful to have a local church supporting us. Chuck and Kirsten Straughn were blessed to call Great Divide Calvary Chapel their home church for many years. Ten Peaks Church is a Great Divide Calvary-associated fellowship. To learn more about Great Divide Calvary Chapel, please click here.
New Heights Church, a non-denominational church in Fayetteville, Arkansas, has a heart to plant churches around the world and share the love of Jesus. For many years they have had a heart for Silverthorne and sent two of their own members to help prepare the way. We were blessed to have church planters Curtis and Becky Wray help Ten Peaks Church through our initial journey. They have since moved on to other ministry opportunities but we remain grateful for their efforts in helping to start our church. Ten Peaks Church is a New Heights-associated fellowship.

Welcome to Ten Peaks Church! We’re the Straughn Family (Chuck, Kirsten, Dillon, August, Lincoln and Victoria). Chuck is the pastor-teacher of Ten Peaks Church. Our family would like to invite you to be part of Ten Peaks Church in Silverthorne.
We’ve been full-time residents of Summit County for the past nine years. In 2009, God told us to give everything away and to follow His call on our lives for ministry and move to Summit County. By the grace of God alone, we listened and obeyed. Little did we know then that God would have us wait these past eight years while our hearts and minds were further prepared for this ministry.
We offer ourselves to Jesus, to be used as He sees fit, and to the community, to help teach and equip His church. We are looking for families and individuals to join with us in this effort as Jesus builds His church!
Our family is self-funded in this ministry and we do not take a salary from the church.
We would like to get to know you personally. Email Chuck at firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to call or text (970) 333-1911.
We believe loving Jesus and loving others are our highest goals in life.
We believe the Bible, in its original manuscripts, is the infallible Word of God and the basis for our faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe there is one God, eternally existing as God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe sin separates us from God, and Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross.
We believe Jesus’ death on the cross, bodily resurrection, and our subsequent faith in Him as our Lord and Savior is our only hope for salvation.
We believe that salvation is given to us by God’s Grace alone and not by our works.
We believe salvation means we spend eternity with Jesus vs eternal separation in Hell.
We believe in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, that they are good, and that they should be exercised according to the Bible’s instructions.
We believe we can lovingly fellowship with other Christians who have different beliefs so long as their beliefs wouldn’t prevent someone from being saved, or stumble a weaker believer, or cause division within the church.
