Sixth Avenue United Church of Christ Denver
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.
Coming up at Sixth Avenue
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 October and December
We are hosting the Denver Women’s Homelessness Initiative each Saturday in October and December. There are many ways to help with this living example of extravagant welcome. If you would like to volunteer for this Saturday (Oct 29th) or in December, you can sign up here.
November 4th – 6th, UCC Fall Youth Retreat
From Friday, Nov. 4 to Sunday, Nov. 6, campers in grades 6-12 will explore faith, love, global/local issues, and so much more at La Foret Retreat Center in the Heart of Black Forest. This fall’s theme is re:Claim the Name. During the retreat, we will be naming, discussing, unpacking, and playing with words and phrases that are thrown about in Christianity. We will be encouraging the youth to define and develop personal understandings of these theological words and themes for themselves. Please ask Rev. Chris Gilmore for more information, or link through RMCUCC
