THE SACRED GRACE
THE SACRED GRACE
A parish church takes spiritual and social responsibility over a specific geography.
Our parish is 2 square miles west of the Anschutz Medical Campus and south of Stapleton.
As the world converges on East Colfax, we desire to be a church that disciples people in the way of Jesus.
We are a part of a family of churches that share vision, values, rhythms, and resources. Our prayer is to see God's Kingdom come to every neighborhood in Denver as it is in heaven.

We provide lunch for the students and teachers at Denver Street School. We purchase the food for their cooking class and join them in preparing and making the food for the rest of the school. We support the DSS staff, develop relationships with students at the school, and create a meal that is shared by all.
This is one way we can develop a partnership with neighborhood schools, local businesses, non-profit organizations, and community ministries to work together towards the ongoing spiritual and social renewal of our neighborhood.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details about DSS Lunch Program.
We want to be known for a generous hospitality and believe in the value of regularly hosting those who live or work in the neighborhood in our homes. This is where we are connecting with those who want to join in and create the ministry of The Sacred Grace East Colfax.

To join God in the work He is doing on East Colfax we depend on the consistent and generous contributions of individuals and organizations. The Sacred Grace is a 501(c)3 organization.
This prayer of generosity we say each week reflects why we choose to give.
All that we have we have received from God. We bring nothing into this world and we take nothing out of it. We choose to follow the way of Jesus and increase in generosity until it can be said, ”there is no one in need among us.” We choose to be faithful stewards of all our resources: relationships, time, possessions, and money. We choose to be generous because our Father is generous, and as his daughters and sons we want to show the world what He is like.
