Lilies for Lunches
The Make-A-Difference Ministry heads up this wonderful annual Easter event. You can honor a loved one and at the same time, help decorate our beautiful sanctuary for Easter by purchasing an Easter plant in memory of a loved one who has moved into the greater beyond, or simply honor someone who holds a special place in your heart.
This year, we are feeding hungry kids through a summer lunch program sponsored by Denver Kids.*
9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., April 2 and 9, Community Center lobby counter, $18
Sponsored by the Make-a-Difference and Women’s Ministries
*Denver Kids helps Denver Public School students, grades K-12, who are in a higher risk environment, by providing caring adults whom they can turn to for guidance and support. We believe in providing positive role models and a source of consistency in our students’ lives thus making life-changing differences and transformations for them.
In fact, when children of higher risk environments have the support of an adult mentor:
- 52% are less likely than their peers to skip a day of school
- 55% are more likely to be enrolled in college
- 46% are less likely than their peers to start using drugs
- 81% are more likely to report participating regularly in sports or extracurricular activities
- 78% are more likely to volunteer regularly in their communities
