Who are the people of Faith United Lutheran in Denver?
We’re neighbors trying to do neighborly things. We are helping the hungry and have two ministries in that area: a. Peter’s Porch (where we work and partner with our sister congregation, Zion Lutheran in Akron) and b. Acts of Love (a Cocalico Area Ministerium program) we help to oversee. We help the homeless. Visit the sick. Journey with families that have lost loved ones… and they aren’t necessarily “members.” In fact, we think of ourselves first as disciple… we happen to work with the people gathered in worship at Faith United. We are part of Cocalico Area Lutheran Ministries (called CALM 5 for the 5 partner Lutheran congregations of Faith United, Mellingers, Muddy Creed, St. Paul’s, and Swamp Lutheran Churches.) With them, we work to reach our neighbors. We collectively work with CrossRoads Ministries and Habitat for Humanity to build a home for people we will never meet. Neighbors aren’t always local. We do churchy things too… Bible school (working with our brothers and sisters at St. John UCC Church and trinity United Methodist Church of Denver), Sunday worship and special items like the “blessing of the animals,” Sunday school, worship at senior care facilities, and live as we are taught in Christ. Yeah, but we remember we are humans looking to work with other humans so going to church is not about being perfect, but trusting God’s work to bring good even out of are very human failures.
