Extreme Community Makeover, West Colfax Clean Up Day, Saturday, June 1, 9:00 am

Join with GGCC, Confluence Ministries and Extreme Community Makeover in a clean-up day in the West Colfax neighborhood. Meet at Confluence Ministries, 1400 Quitman St, Denver at 9:00 am.

This is a great way to help neighbors in need by:

  • completing exterior home repair or improvement projects
  • cleaning up trash on the streets and alleys
  • removing graffiti
  • building new relationships and making connections 

Lunch will be provided. Projects are generally completed by 4:00 pm, but you can come for a half day. Children of all ages are welcome to come with an adult willing to work with and supervise them.

 Please contact Diana Dietvorst at 303-550-9853 or dietvorst1@comcast.net if you'd like to serve.

 Extreme Community Makeover is a local nonprofit that began in 2008. Since then, over 21,000 volunteers have partnered with over 1,750 residents in Denver to complete day-long projects to improve homes and neighborhoods. To learn more, go to www.extremecommunitymakeover.org.

Bingo at The Gathering Place, Monday, June 3,  2-3 pm, 1535 High St. Denver

Spend an hour, the first Monday of each month, (the second Monday in September) with members at The Gathering Place as God's Grace leads Bingo, 1535 High St. Denver. It's an hour of laughter, relaxation and a time for building relationships for the ladies. The center is a blessing to many. It's family for those that don't have family, it's friends to make the journey easier.

"The Gathering Place exists to support women and their children experiencing homelessness and poverty by providing a safe daytime refuge and resources for self-sufficiency."

 Ice Cream at Bonnie Brae afterward. Back by 4:15. 

Carpool leaves the Home Depot parking lot on Arapahoe Rd. east of I-25.  South end of parking lot, north of Starbucks.  Contact Claudia, claudia.larson@godsgracecc.com.

GGCC also collects unexpired non perishable food items, new unopened toiletries (especially larger containers), and new socks and underwear, new unexpired baby food and formula, new unopened packages of diapers and wipes and new unopened bottles of baby lotion, wash, powder and diaper rash ointment for Betsy's Cupboard. Please bring to church Sunday’s and place in The Gathering Place Bin.
