Supporting Family Promise of Greater Denver

Family Promise: Preventing Homelessness One Family at a Time

We are sponsoring 4 families for Christmas through Family Promise's Giving Tree Program!
Each family receives the following from their sponsor:
1. One gift per adult (within the $20-$30 range)
2. Two gifts per child (each within the $20-$30 range)
3. A $25 grocery store gift card so they can shop for and prepare a nice holiday meal.
You are not required to sponsor the entire family. As you will see on the sign-up form, each family member is on a seperate line.
Unwrapped gifts are due back to USCD by December 2.

Family Promise has expanded their program by leasing an 11-bedroom home in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.
Take a virtual tour of the house HERE
This allows them to serve an additional 2-4 families (up to 16 individuals) in the newly leased space.
They will also still continue sheltering the usual 8 families in the hotel until at least the end of the year
This is an opportunity for us to step up and serve in a new way. This new site will not be supported by host congregations on a rotating basis, as we are accustomed to, but needs our support year round. 
Starting in October, there will be a weekly slot for grocery shopping and delivery and daily volunteer slots available for folks who are willing to prepare a meal and deliver it to the home at 6:00 pm, as well as an evening host to receive and serve the dinner, and an overnight host to spend the night.
Check out the opennings HERE

The Child Rescue Foundation & Denver Kids!
We are partnering with Child Rescue Foundation once again this year,
to share the Christmas spirit with young people who may otherwise not receive a Christmas gift.
To simplify things, they are asking for $35 gift cards to distribute to youth enrolled in the Denver Kids Program
Buy and wrap the gift card, put the counselor and the child’s name securely on the package.
Wrap gifts need to be returned back to USCD by December 6.

Feed the Homeless

Typically meets on the last Saturday of the month
"What you do to the least of them you do to me." - Jesus
The purpose of the Feed the Homeless project is to give those less fortunate food for the body and to help feed their souls by seeing in them what God already sees—a beautiful worthy human being.
We are currently not meeting in person, but trying to regulary collect food items to support a local food bank during this challenging time.
The group usually  meets the last Saturday of every month at 9 a.m. at the church to prepare sandwiches and put together
toiletry bags. Everyone is invited to help prepare food, donate items or money  and/or come downtown to help distribute the items. Any help given is always appreciated. 
For more information, contact Becky.

Welcoming Team

Our welcoming system is more than a program, it is a consciousness that is held within our entire spiritual community! Serving as a welcoming greeter on Sunday mornings is also an easy way to get to know others in our community. 
Questions, or to sign-up for our next Welcome Team Orientation, contact
Current welcome team volunteers can sign-up via sign-up genius, here.


Over 176,000 plush animals have been donated to date and Child Rescue Foundation has been awarded the Presidents Point of Light Award for these efforts.
