You know we hear all about the political agendas in the different denominations and all the pros and cons of a particular stance, but through all of this, not one mention is made of Jesus Christ. What are Churches for anyway, are they a social organization, a political array of stances, a means for pushing through a theological opinion, or are they a source for Jesus to bring people together in order to make them Disciples.
Our “community of faith”, in other words our church, bases its foundation, bases its gathering point, and bases it grounding on the Word of our Lord. We have been studying the “Good Samaritan” as of late, that wonderful Disciple who stopped to help someone no one else would help. If Jesus is at the Core of our Being, if Jesus is being trusted and we are Christ-like, if Jesus is at the top of our priorities, then we are truly Disciples.
So let all of this political nonsense, let all of this negativity and extreme publicity, no matter whether progressive or conservative, let it disappear, and allow our Jesus to be at the head of the Pulpit, at the head of the Courtroom, at the head of the Government, and let Jesus rise among the elements of despair as we see it everywhere.
With that comfort in place, we won’t hear the verbal attacks and movements we are experiencing today. Yes, Jesus Should Be The Main Focus!!!

May 12th is “Mother’s Day”, a time when we reflect on the wonderful support and love our Mothers always give us. It is a time when we reflect on the good, the gracious and the glory of God as he has given us the beautiful and wondrous gift of our Mothers. Join us on Sunday as we reflect the “Word” in the “Give, Good, and Grace” of our Mothers in today’s society.
I, as a Pastor, lost my Mom last year. We really never lose our Moms in our heart, she will always be there for me. They love us no matter what our circumstances and they love us in times of trouble, challenge and untruth.
Let this day of Mother’s Day be a time of true Grace for you. We have two services, one at 9:30 a.m. at Washington Street Community Center, 809 So Washington Street, in Central Denver and we have another at 1:00 p.m. at Brookdale Senior Living Center at 150 Quebec Street. We will see you there!!!
Blessings, Pastor Karen
Join us this Sunday, April 14th for the “Laying of the Palms” at 150 Quebec Street in Denver, Colorado, at 1:00 p.m. This is our SPECIAL PALM SUNDAY SERVICE and should be beautiful. Also join us at 809 Washington Street, at 9:30 a.m. for this Special Service at Washington Street Community Center, for those of you who are morning people.
In June we will have three services, one at 9:30 am. at WSCC, one at 1:00 pm at Washington Park UMC, 1955 E Arizona Avenue and one at 3:00 pm. at Brookdale Senior Living Center. So we are trying to accommodate you in your busy lives, let us have the chance to encourage you to live with Jesus on a continuous basis.
We look forward to your joining us at one of our services.
They say if people don’t come to your church, then you should go to them. That is exactly what we are doing, we are “going to them”. Even though we are still pivoted at 1955 East Arizona Avenue in Denver, we have expanded to 150 Quebec Street, a Nursing Home/Retirement Facility where we perform Worship Services at 1:00 p.m. on Sundays. We facilitate Worship Service on the second floor of the Nursing Home in the Event Center. All are welcome.
We also facilitate a “Spiritual Studies” Book Club on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. at the 150 Quebec Street address.
Even though we will continue at the Retirement Center/Nursing Home, starting the first of April, 2019, we will have Worship Services at 9:30 a.m. at 809 So Washington Street, Denver, CO 80209. We will have services every Sunday at the 9:30 a.m. time. With Easter, Resurrection Sunday, coming, the timing couldn’t be better. This location is a Community Center offering all types of activities and we feel we can pull in new members and participation by just being there. We are also going to assist them with their community garden and flowers.
For most of our Special Events, we will continue at 1955 East Arizona Avenue in Denver.
Please join us at a convenient time for you. You are always welcome and bring your friends.
Blessings, Pastor Karen
