CURRENT INITIATIVE //
FOOD DISTRIBUTION EVENT
We had so much fun with the No Empty Tables initiative leading up to Thanksgiving that we've decided to do it for Easter, too!
We're using the same simple process to provide an Easter meal for a family whose table may otherwise be empty. This time, we're also incorporating a teacher tie-in to make sure that teachers from certain surrounding schools are blessed with a box that'll contain extra goodies just to let them know we support them!
Why? It's simple. We're #ForOurCity and #ForOurTeachers.
\\ Pick up a box/instruction sheet in the Atrium when you come to service on Sun., March 14 or Sun., March 21.
If you're not yet attending in-person services, pick up a box at the church offices (beginning Mon., March 15), 12189 W. 64th Ave., Arvada, with enough time to return the completed box by Thurs., March 25. Offices are open M-Th between 8:30AM-5PM.
\\ Head to your grocery store to purchase specific items for an Easter meal from the provided shopping list, then place each item in the box.
\\ Bring the filled box back on Sun., March 21, or Sun., March 28, and bring it to the specified location in the Atrium. Faith will add a separate ham voucher to complete the Easter meal.
\\ Boxes will be distributed at a Drive-Thru Distribution Event on Sun., March 28, from 2-4PM in the East Campus parking lot, 6210 Ward Road, Arvada.
\\ Sign up to make an impact! There are several times/jobs to choose from to make a difference leading up to and on distribution day.
This drive-thru food distribution event provides an Easter meal in a free, conveniently-packed box AND an entire truck-load of food from the Farmers to Families program. If you need food or know someone who does, you can pick up free food at this distribution event.
We're distributing boxes as long as they last!
Easter meal voucher for a ham (or your main dish of choice) and the accompanying non-perishable food.
Mixed fresh produce, chicken and milk
Pick up a box yourself, or pick up a box to take to someone who needs it. And spread the word for others to come pick up a box themselves or take to someone who needs it.

CURRENT INITIATIVE //
FOOD DISTRIBUTION EVENT
On Sun., April 18, from 2-4PM, we will distribute food (while supplies last; first come-first served) in our East Campus parking lot, 6210 Ward Road, Arvada.
1. Get food yourself, or get food for someone who needs it.
2. Spread the word for others to come and get it.
3. Sign up to volunteer at the event. We need Impact Team members to unload and move boxes, as well as friendly faces to smile, wave and direct traffic. Even better, you can load up your car/truck with boxes to distribute yourself. Not sure where to go? We can help guide you.
This particular truckload is mixed/fresh produce, chicken and milk.
At past distribution events, churches, ministries and food pantries have chosen to pick up a large number of boxes to meet known needs in their realm of influence. If you'd like to pick up more than 10 boxes, please RSVP to Pastor Mark with your name, phone number and desired number of boxes. We'll do our best to ensure the amount requested is available for you.
Filled 800-ish boxes with food for Thanksgiving meals and distributed them to anyone needing a Thanksgiving dinner. We had so much fun that we recently duplicated the effort to distribute an Easter meal-in-a-box, too!
Hosted a community soccer clinic for more than 60 kids to:
learn and grow in the game
move and have fun
connect with each other and our incredible coaches
come away knowing we are for them
Plans have been finalized to host another community soccer clinic this spring.
In the fall, we distributed about 120,000 pounds of produce, meat and cheese for 600+ cars coming through our food lines in partnership with Farmers to Families. Delivered 800+ boxes of food door-to-door.
In the spring, we distributed 2,900 boxes of fresh produce, chicken and milk to 350+ cars and also directly delivered many boxes throughout the surrounding area.
From encouraging our own church family to care about he prosperity of local restaurants and businesses to expressing appreciation to our police officers through personal notes, dinner on us at Chipotle, and Christmas cookies, we want our city and the people who live here to know we are for them.
