HistorySouthern Gables Evangelical Free Church started as a prayer meeting in October 1962 under the name of Lakewood Evangelical Free Church. By January 30, 1972, a 500-seat sanctuary was planned and a ground-breaking ceremony was held. On February 4, 1973, the parishioners celebrated their first Sunday in the new sanctuary. In 1978 Gerald Nelson became the senior pastor. Under his guidance and direction, the church is building its new facility at 4001 South Wadsworth Boulevard, Lakewood, Colorado, which encompasses one entire city block.
