Serve Denver

Many people at Fellowship Denver have expressed a desire to serve the city. They are looking for a way to invest their lives into someone or something that will contribute to real change and give others a taste of the Kingdom. But just as common are feelings of doubt: can one person ever really make a difference?

 

“Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.” – God (Jeremiah 29:7)

 

Serve Denver is our church’s partnership initiative with local non-profit organizations that encourages our members to serve the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of fellow Denverites. By partnering with effective, healthy organizations, we multiply our efforts. We will challenge you to find your focus rather than skimming the surface of social causes or fluttering from one event or fundraiser to another. Serve Denver is focused on helping cultivate sustained, intelligent and passionate investment by our members in local organizations who are doing gospel-centered work with a holistic focus on tangible and spiritual care. 

Learn

Good intentions are not enough. Everywhere you turn, our city is facing complicated needs that are the result of broken relationships. The Serve Denver curriculum is an eight-week study designed to equip Fellowship Groups to serve lovingly, intelligently and reliably by developing a theological foundation that motivates action to live on mission in Denver.

Serve

Serve Denver can help you identify where your own unique gifts and resources intersect with the real and deep needs of our local community. Then, we partner with vibrant ministries in Denver who meet spiritual and tangible needs and offer clear, practical ways for you to serve.  

Summer of Service

Each year, Summer of Service highlights the importance of using our time and resources to meet the tangible needs of our neighbors. From June-August, Serve Denver will partner with Fellowship Groups to host service projects across the city that are open to anyone who wants to sign-up to serve. If your group wants to host a project, please contact Jill Anschutz to schedule.
