Christmas Outreach

On Saturday, December 8 we hosted 20 families at the UO DenverĀ building and threw a huge Christmas party for them. There were a total of 43 kids, and with the parents andĀ their kids, and volunteers, there was about 150 people crammed into our newly renovated sanctuary! We were grateful to partner with Grace Community Church in Centennial, CO, and Crossroads Victory in Montrose, CO. These churches provided teams to who came in and not only provided Christmas stockings for each child, but also a Christmas present for each child.

We were privileged to serve the Early Excellence program, a school located in our community. With their help, we identified what gifts each child would like, and through our partnerships with Grace Community and Crossroads Victory, we provided each child with their requested gift. We served lunch and dessert, and had yo-yo and magic trick shows that were truly the life of the party! Then, I had the privilege of reading the Nativity Story to everyone, and then they opened their gifts. It was truly a great time, and it was special to see the UO Denver building filled with people, especially kids.

We say this often, but we mean it: We thank each of our supporting churches, businesses and individuals. Everything that goes into making outreaches like this happen are because of your faithful support in prayer and resources!
