Golden Community Commons
Golden Community Commons (GCC) at the Armory is a common place for the common good in Golden, CO. The goal of GCC is to create a compassionate and respectful place of welcome, conversation, service, connection and relationship for our community. Calvary Episcopal Church purchased the historic Armory Building in July 2014. Shortly after the purchase, the non-profit Golden Community Commons (GCC) was formed with the intent to facilitate partnerships that serve the well-being of the Golden community. There is currently a 2M capital fundraising campaign underway to retire the Armory’s mortgage, at which time Calvary Church will sell the Armory to Golden Community Commons for $1. Until that time, Calvary holds the real estate and its operations in trust for the community of Golden. Learn more at goldencommunitycommons.org.
