One of our early bishops taught that the church is the only institution in the world that exists primarily for the benefit of those who are not its members. We strive to be God's hands in the community, working alongside our neighbors to serve, and to improve the quality of life for all. We actively partner with local organizations to provide real material resources. We collaborate with civic and religious leaders to address systemic needs like affordable housing. We offer our campus as a community center, hosting support groups, music lessons and exercise classes. We welcome overnight guests, providing shelter to families transitioning from homelessness. See below what we're doing and how you can participate.
with our hands
The Women's Gathering meets on Thursdays from 1-3 pm in Maglaras Hall to knit and crochet hats, scarves, mittens, afghans and more for newborns, those who are ill, and those in need of warmth. All are welcome to join us! Please contact Dotti Moyer for more information.
Holy Comforter is a host site to help families in transition to home security. We host families four times per year, which includes housing them at the church, cooking meals for them, and spending time getting to know them. Please contact Leslie Wilmot for information about upcoming weeks.
St. Francis Center
Our St. Francis Team takes monthly service trips to the St. Francis Center, a day shelter in downtown Denver for men and women who are homeless on the 3rd Sunday of each month. They leave the church parking lot at 7:30 am and return about 12:30 pm.
