Celebration of Rev. Joe Mares - First Presbyterian Church in Aurora

  • First Presbyterian Church 1585 Kingston Street Aurora, CO, 80010 United States (map)

Dear Friends and Colleagues of the Presbytery of Denver,

After ten years as pastor of Word and Sacrament, it is with joy and some trepidation that I announce my upcoming retirement from full-time ministry as Minister of Word and Sacrament at First Presbyterian Church of Aurora effective August 2nd. Working and learning together with you has resulted in my making lifelong friends as a member of Denver Presbytery. I give thanks to God for this experience!  

To celebrate my 10 years of life and ministry with this beloved community, the session, congregation and I invite you to join us at a retirement pot-luck dinner on Saturday, July 29th starting at 5:00 pm. in the church fellowship hall (map).  For further information you may contact Stacey in the church office at 303-364-2609 or at
