Many from The Together Church of Golden and the community will be showing up this Saturday September 10th from 9am-4pm to begin the rehabilitation of one square block in Golden. There will be 75+ volunteers on site to start landscaping, clean-up, painting, light construction and much more along side home owners who desire to do together what would be quite a task alone. The finances that will be used to purchase the materials, has come from the special offering received at our Buffalo Bill Days Worship Service, thank you to all those who have participated in giving!

Later this month a team of men from Westcliff, Colorado will be arriving as well to take on one or two other projects in this same neighborhood. These men are from a local church in Westcliff and desire to move their faith into action within the State of Colorado and not only their own city. They are very excited to come and partner with our city for the well being of individuals in need!

On October 9th Faith Lutheran Church of Golden will be fininshing up the project with several volunteers they will be placing in that neighborhood as well! Not to mention many others spread through neighborhoods all over serving. They have set Sunday October 9th aside as a day of service to the community. I really commend Faith Lutheran for thinking outside the box and setting into action opportunities to serve and cast a vision for the community!

How can you help? We are still in need of donations to cover materials and disposal costs for the three projects discussed above. You can click the “donate” tab above and use PayPal or mail a gift to Community Faith in Action 1224 Washington Ave. Unit #105 Golden, Co. 80401, please just attach a note to your giving that says “Neighborhood Rehab”. Thank You.

My desire is to see people of all types get involved and do their part in seeing Golden become a place where people know they are cared for and a community of individuals who truly work for the well being of our city. A Scripture that comes to mind from the twenty ninth chapter of Jeremiah verse seven says, “…seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”

Have an awesome week!
