  • The Japanese American religious institutions, Tri-State Buddhist Church and Simpson United Methodist Church, have since their establishment always met the needs of their congregations. Along with the transition and transformation of the ethnic community, the churches adjusted their roles to meet the changing needs of their congregations. Both churches began to perform the role of ethnic community centers when territorial ethnic community was dispersed. The churches became rare organizations of single ethnic orientation, providing Japanese Coloradans opportunities to maintain their ethnic ties.
