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 disability. 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
After church on August 28th, everyone is invited to a potluck celebrating the kickoff of the fall programs and the “Colorado Peach.” All types of “peach” dishes are welcome and encouraged. In addition, we will have activities for children and adults. We hope you will join us!
Denver Women’s Homelessness Initiative
Saturdays in August
We will be hosting the Denver Women’s Homelessness Initiative on each Saturday in August. There are many ways to help with this living example of extravagant welcome. Please contact Elizabeth Pinsonneault or Rev. Chris Gilmore if you would like to volunteer, or with any questions about the program.
Giving From the Heart
Join us on September 20, from 5:30-7:00pm, at History Colorado, for a celebration of the Women’s Homelessness Initiative and the release of our new book, Exposure, Homelessness Through the Lens of Art and Poetry. This provocative book brings us on a journey of transformation as we stand with those who are homeless. Help us celebrate our WHI Volunteers, Congregations, and Organizations, and all who support those on the margins in our community. RSVP by Sep. 12th to Diana at (303)832 4188, or by email -firstname.lastname@example.org
The next Women’s Homelessness Initiative Volunteer Training will be held Saturday, October 8th, at 8:30am until noon at Corona Presbyterian Church. Parking is available in the church parking lot. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. It is important for those who have been with us to participate in another training, even if they have been to one in the past. All volunteers who are working overnight must attend a training.
