Outreach & Advocacy - Living Our Faith in the World
We are a diverse and inclusive Christian community committed to social justice and action. We welcome all people, no matter their orientations or identities. We are a whole earth church, exploring our connection and responsibilities to all creation. We are believers in restorative justice, practitioners of just peace and inclusive language. We strive to uphold these values through our work in the Denver community and actions in the world. We participate in and help support many local organizations and initiatives including: Eco-Justice Ministries, The Women's Homelessness Initiative, FISH of East Denver (Food Pantry), The Denver Inner City Parish, OMO House, Colorado Council of Churches, the Interfaith Coalition Against Gun Violence, El Centro Humanitario, and more.
