Sixth Avenue United Church of Christ
Sixth Avenue United Church is a congregation of the United Church of Christ. We are an open and affirming congregation. That means that we welcome all people regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender preference, and ability. We have a strong tradition of openness towards a diversity of beliefs about God and the role of religion in our everyday lives. Sixth Avenue participates in a number of local and global mission projects, providing immediate assistance and working toward long-term solutions. Projects include collecting food donations for Denver Inner City Parish, which serves the homeless and under-served, participating in walks and marches, and hosting the Women’s Homeless Initiative.
Faith in Action at Sixth Avenue
Our seminary intern, Cheryl Swing, is leading a four week adult education course created by the Office of the General Minister and President of the UCC on White Privilege. This course has been offered on Sundays after church, and began Sunday February 5th. The final two courses will take place this Sunday February 19th, and next Sunday February 25th. Everyone is invited to attend one or more of these classes.
Denver Women’s Homelessness Initiative
WHI is a consortium of churches working with Capitol Hill United Ministries to give sanctuary and hospitality every night to women who would otherwise be on our streets. What WHI offers is a chance for these women to be known, heard, and cared for, with compassion, dignity, respect, and presence of heart.
WHI in February
We are hosting the Denver Women’s Homelessness Initiative each Saturday in February. There are many ways to help with this living example of extravagant welcome. If you would like to volunteer in February, you can sign up here.
