Dear God's Grace Community Church,

Thank you so much for the recent donation of $100.00 to Open Door Youth Gang Alternatives that was given in memory of Gloria Mitchell.  Please pass on to her family our great appreciation for this gift.

Thanks to donors like you, Open Door continues to provide support to at-risk youth and their families, and adult ex-gang members and their families.

Be sure to find us on Facebook and "Like" us so that you can keep updated on our happenings.  Please visit our website for more information:  www.opendooryouth.org.

Frankly, we could not do what we do without donors such as you. We, and those we serve, deeply appreciate your generosity.

God Bless,

Rev. Leon Kelly, Executive Director

Thank You from Extreme Community Makeover

July 2018

God’s Grace Community Church,

Thank you so much for the financial donation to Extreme Community Makeover. As we celebrate our tenth anniversary this year, it’s amazing to reflect on the generosity of people, such as yourself, who give their time and resources to make the following stats possible - 31,380 volunteers have participated, 2,438 projects completed, 160,200 volunteer hours, $161,849.62 donated in food and project supplies and $3,890,537.40 in volunteer labor invested into Denver communities.

What doesn't show up in these numbers though, is how people are showing care and concern for others.  Through answering a knock at the door with the offer of a helping hand, people come together as they work side by side on these projects.  They find out they have more in common with one another than they realize.  And along the way, we all learn how to become better neighbors as we talk and work and share stories. The smiles at the end of each volunteer day are priceless, since together we are building stronger relationships, stronger neighborhoods, and a stronger city. 

Thank you for playing a role in making this work possible.

Angela Bomgaars, Executive Director

May 2018

God’s Grace Community Church,

Thank you for joining the recent Work Day in the West Colfax neighborhood and for sticking with things in spite of the chilly temperature and rain to make everything soggy! I always appreciate working with you and the commitment you make to Extreme Community Makeover!

Thank You from Confluence Ministries

January 2018

Dear God's Grace Community Church,

Words cannot express how thankful we are for you and your partnership with Confluence Ministries!  The volunteering of your time and prayers, your financial support and in-kind gifts, have a significant impact.

2017 was a year overflowing with testimonies for lives touched by God.  As we reflect on those stories, we are filled with deep appreciation.  We clearly see how the providential weaving together of our friendships and connections has made a difference.  Throughout these past 14 years we have witnessed God's faithfulness and creative power in our communities and lives.  Thank you for being a part of that miracle.

Confluence Ministries has taken a proactive approach on the issues surrounding us today; being intentional toward bringing wholeness to the West Colfax neighborhood, Metro Denver, and other nations.  We are confident in the call to collaborate and work for the wellbeing of our "city" to which we have been sent. (Jeremiah 29:7)

Because for your support in 2017, the mission of Confluence was lived out in several ways:

  • Backpacks were given to over 700 school children at the Annual Neighborhood Festival, ensuring the students at Colfax and Cheltenham Elementary were prepared for the new school year. (Both schools are in our West Colfax Neighborhood)
  • A team of 11 musicians traveled to Cuba, responding to an invitation from a national worship director training a new generation of musicians.  18 instruments were donated to the new school of music! (a young man who had been praying for 8 years to receive a saxophone of his own, received his answer.  His flood of emotion for this gift brought new meaning to the word "gratitude" as he explained his tears of joy to our team)
  • Confluence Ministries celebrated 10 years of ESL/GED programs, Whiz Kids and MOPS!
  • 300 + musical outreaches, collaborative events and meetings.

Through your faithful support of Confluence Ministries, we can celebrate together the strengthening of families, and the influence we have through the power of presence at city events, local outreaches and world missions.

We look forward to 2018 with great anticipation as we continue bringing leaders together from diverse social sectors for strategic, meaningful outcomes in our city.  We are eager to see what God will do through friends like you collaborating together!

Love to God's Grace and so thankful for your beautiful church!

Sincerely, Jude & Cindy Del Hierro and the Confluence Team
