Tragically, on Friday night 12 people were killed and 58 injured by a gunman at a movie premiere in Aurora, Colorado, a Denver suburb.
I am so saddened and sickened by the shooting and tragedy here in Denver. All of our summer Interns went to the movie premiere last night, but at a different theater. All of our teens are at Summer Camp. I am so sad for the individuals and families who were not so fortunate. Please pray for them.
The disciples and their families are all well. We are very grateful for the many prayers and words of support we have received from disciples all over the world.
May God provide "a refuge for the needy in their distress,
a shelter from the storm
and a shade from the heat.
For the breath of the ruthless
is like a storm driving against a wall." Isaiah 25:4 (TNIV)
It was a bittersweet moment as the Heese family stood on stage to be prayed over by the elders in Denver, and Jim gave us the "one container" challenge. An amazing story of faith and courage...
The Pearson Bible Talk has been one of the most consistent married family groups in the Southeast Region of the Denver Church.
This group has been led by the Andre & Anita Pearson since January 2008.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35
The Bible talk lead by Leif and Jolene Langnes is truly an expression of this scripture.
If you feed them they will come. My husband Alan and I have a saying: “If our friends come to dinner, they will become Christians.” Now, it doesn’t always happen that way. Regardless, they do hear the Good News of Jesus.
The Denver Church of Christ is pleased to offer a FREE workshop for the under-employed / unemployed, June 17th -19th. Anyone can attend, including those interested in learning the keys to a career upgrade. This professional workshop has been generously funded by one of the brothers in our church.

The Denver Church of Christ is excited to announce our upcoming 25th Anniversary Celebration Weekend! We would like to invite anyone who has been a part of the Denver Church of Christ to join us the weekend of June 10th – 12th, 2011, for a great time of fun and fellowship as we reflect on God’s blessings over the past 25 years! Disciples from all of the Colorado and New Mexico churches will be joining us to help celebrate this milestone. Highlights include a golf tournament, a day at the Zoo, teen, campus and singles outings, an ice cream social, a vintage t-shirt contest and amazing times to worship God. We would be honored for our family throughout the world to join us.
We are so thankful for the great progress God has blessed the Denver church with. For six years in a row, the church in Denver declined in membership. However, God started turning things around in a great way. Last year we had our first year of positive growth, seeing each of our ministries and each of our regions all growing.
