A COMMUNITY GARDEN IS A BLESSED PLACE!!

It is a wonderful sight to see the vegetables and fruits grow in a Community Garden.  Not only are the vegetables and fruits a great joy but the people who planted them are an even greater joy.  Become part of our group and plant each year, assist in nurturing the garden, and help harvest.  Remember, you are helping others and offering a way to express your love for Jesus Christ and your fellow man.

During the winter months, we will be helping serve meals, assisting people find shelter, and helping those in need to become more self-sufficient.  This will be done through counseling, education, and career building.  Join our group “huddle” in offering these services to those who are in need.  Contact pastor_karen_schneider@yahoo.com or call her at 720-308-8418 to discuss what we do.  We will have worship services every Sunday at 5:00 p.m. at First Baptist of Denver starting September 8, 2013.

Reverend Karen W. Schneider, Senior Pastor

As we studied the Bible this Sunday, it reminded us all of the purpose of soul revival and restoration.  The soul needs continual restoration through prayer, worship, religious study, community involvement, service to Jesus, and replenishing.  And as we take Communion, it serves as a rebirth, rejuvenation, cleansing and restructuring of our souls.  The soul takes it all in, the heart, the mind, the physical body and the holy spirit.  Let them all work together for your soul to be restored.

Let us hear “Your Story” as you live in a society of change and challenge.  We LISTEN and want you to come to our Table.

Join us for our Worship, Meet and greet and “Craving Biblical Conversation”.

Love and Peace, Pastor Karen

A COMMUNITY GARDEN IS A SPECIAL PLACE

I was working at our Community Garden yesterday and was watching the various people unloading dirt, nurturing and spreading soil for more planting.  What a delightful sight to see, those people giving their time and their heart to an effort to help others.  Those people giving their time for “food for justice”, a concept where a garden grows and the harvest goes to those who are hungry.  Can it get any better than that?

Stop by and see our Community Garden where Gardens of Divine Hope is located, right in the middle. We are at the Community Garden of Metro CareRing downtown Denver at 18th and Downing.   Our Garden is starting to grow.  Give us a visit!!

God Bless,

Pastor Karen W. Schneider

SHARING YOUR THOUGHTS WITH GOD WILL HELP YOU

Have you ever had an idea or thought and everyone thought you were crazy?  Or have you thought of something different and no one seems to understand?  God is the answer.  Our God is open to all ideas and understands everything.  No one is judged, no one is categorized, and no one is “crazy”.  Ideas are what make our future and if you have a good one, then you will be a leader of our future.

Share your idea with God and see what happens.  You will be amazed at the outcome of your efforts.  If it weren’t for good ideas, we would not be where we are today.

Love and Peace,

Pastor Karen

THE GARDEN IS STARTING TO GROW

Our garden is starting to grow and flourish.  We now have corn, squash and peas  starting to show their faces in our Garden located downtown Denver at Metro CareRing at 18th and Downing.  What a delightful sight to see, a large Garden that is growing to “help others”.

Stop by and see our Garden, and join us for worship in the Fall at First Baptist of Denver at 5:00 p.m. every Sunday evening.  September 8th, is our first worship service First Baptist.    Gardens of Divine Hope Church (First Baptist)  is located at 14th and Grant, across the street from the Capitol Building.  We have an hour of worship and music to set your heart on “fire”.  Let this be your church.  We are open to everyone whether you are of a denomination or not, it doesn’t matter.  Join us!!

Our Garden is not only a Garden in the literal sense, but it is Garden of people as well.  People are what make a church and getting together as a “Huddle” to worship is a way to find the path to God.

Blessings,

Pastor Karen W. Schneider
