Join us for a presentation at Lakewood UCC following the worship service to learn more about the obstacles Colorado Dreamers face in gaining access to postsecondary education and how you can help. This presentation will be given by members of the Metropolitan State University of Denver’s (MSU Denver’s) Dreamer Network. This organization is comprised of dedicated professionals within the university whose goal is to advocate for equitable policies, educate the community, plan events and raise funds to support Dreamers students. MSU Denver serves a larger number of undocumented students who qualify for in-state tuition than any other 2- or 4-year institution in Colorado.

Participation on a board or committee is both an opportunity to share your gifts of grace and to develop a deeper understanding of those gifts.

If you feel called to serve, in any capacity, please contact the Vice Moderator, Paul Michalec, about the various opportunities that exist. Paul can be reached at paul.michalec@du.edu or 303-988-1359.

As part of our work with the Lakewood Faith Coalition, your Mission, Outreach, and Evangelism board is starting to develop a relationship with Deane Elementary School, a Title 1 school in Lakewood. Of the many things Deane Elementary provides to its students and families is access to a food pantry. As our first effort to help Deane Elementary, its students, and their families, we will be collecting donations for their food pantry on November 19 and 26. Items they are requesting include:

  • Whole grain cereal, like Raisin Bran, Honey Nut Cheerios, Granola, etc.
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • One-minute rice
  • Ranch dressing
  • Buttermilk or similar pancake mix boxes

If you would like to donate to this cause, please bring your donation to the church on one of those Sundays. There will be a collection box in the fellowship hall. Please consider donating to this school in need. Remember, no donation is too small!
