Prayer Pods

Prayer Pods are small groups that meet routinely either virtually or in person to pray together.  Each Pod has a leader that helps to communicate prayer requests to the pod and also helps to organize times that the pod can pray together.  We invite you to join a pod or to form your own.  For help with finding a prayer pod to join or forming your own pod, contact Bobbi Stock at (719) 371-2624 or bobbistock@gmail.com.

Service Sabbath

Outreach programs are scheduled for the first Sabbath of each month (our Service Sabbath). Feel free to reach out to any of the program leaders if you are interested in volunteering for a specific program.

Peace Camp is a ministry to Muslim refugee families. We will be doing monthly hikes with the refugee families making friends and teaching about the Creator. During the summer we will be holding a camp for kids ages 5-12 with worships, games, and crafts. We welcome any ages to come help. We are seeking to make friends with these families and teach them more about God. Please contact Carrie Churchwell if you would like to help to receive training before coming and to learn the locations each month.
