Upcoming Opportunities to Serve in the World

Third Thursdays at Open Door, Thursday, November 15, 3:30-5:15 pm 

Be a part of the new and exciting vision for GGCC’s monthly mission at Open Door Youth Gang Alternatives. On the 3rd Thursday (excluding Dec.), we’ll be providing fun and creative activities for the kids.  Each month, the kids get to choose if they want to participate and so do you. This month the kids will be making Christmas ornaments and playing games. We’re looking for volunteers to help with ideas, supplies and in-person participation. 

Carpool leaves the Home Depot parking lot on Arapahoe Rd. east of I-25 , south end by Starbucks at 2:45. Back by 6:15.

Bingo at The Gathering Place, Monday, December 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. Contact Andrea at alheshmati@aol.com if you'd like to carpool.

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.

Paris Elementary Thanksgiving Baskets, Saturday, November 17

Many families at Paris Elementary do not have the resources to celebrate a Thanksgiving meal.  Out of gratitude for all God has given us we pray for generous hearts to share the holiday with them. You have the opportunity to shop for a traditional Thanksgiving meal, make a monetary donation, help deliver and distribute baskets and pray for the ministry. 

Be watching for the grocery list, times and other details soon. 

Contact Maureen at 2herboys@q.com.
