Upcoming Opportunities to Serve in the World

Bingo at The Gathering Place, Monday, May 7, 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."

Meet at the Double Tree Hotel on Orchard Rd. west of I-25  at 1:15 to carpool.  Ice Cream at Bonnie Brae afterward.  Back by 4:15.

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.

Open Door Spring Fishing Event, Saturday, May 12, 10:00 am-2:00 pm

Spend a fun day at the park fishing with Rev and his kids, a day that the kids have earned as a special reward.

Lunch will follow fishing with a cookout in the park around noon. 

If you want to help the kids fish you will need a fishing license. You can purchase one at Walmart, Cabela’s or online at cpw.state.co.us.

Directions: South on Santa Fe to Titan Rd, about 2 miles south of Highlands Ranch Parkway. West on Titan Rd, through construction of new homes (Sterling Ranch) to Roxborough Park Rd. GO north on Roxborough Park Rd until you get to the Highline Canal trail, just before the park entrance.  Meet in the parking lot to carpool into the park.

You must enter the park from Titan Rd. You CANNOT get to the south end from the Wadsworth entrance! Once inside the park, drive around to the south end. The road is closed just past the bridge, turn left there. Drive forward as far as you can.  Both fishing and picnic will be at this location.
