Young Adult (20’s/30’s) Group Retreat
October 25-27, 2019
Join us for a 20’s and 30s getaway in the mountains just outside of Breckenridge. We’ll have a balance of time to connect (and/or do your own thing: hiking/having time in nature) and programming.
The only cost for the entire weekend is to cover group meals & cleaning fees ($15/person).
Space is a bit limited (there is room for 13 people in beds and then we can add a few more on air mattresses) so if you plan on attending, be sure to register before it fills up! Email Anne with questions!

Invitation to Retreat
January 17-19, 2020
Abbey of St. Walburga, Virginia Dale, Colorado
This will be a retreat based on a class taught by Charlie Dodrill at Denver Seminary a couple of years ago. We will trace the steps of some of the early monastic people as we open our own hearts and lives to what–and Who–gripped theirs. We will learn together, eat together, practice silence together, sing together (along with the nuns during their daily offices), and process all of it as we do so. It will be a time of exterior silence and (hopefully) interior awakening of a longing we may or may not know is there to know Him more intimately and be known by Him.
Simple meals will be provided by the sisters at the Abbey. Rooms will all be single rooms. Cost will be $135 per person for the weekend (which includes food and lodging).
Space is limited to 12 participants, so please sign up quickly.
Class: November 17, Noon, Social Hall
Dedication Services: December 1, 9AM & 10:30 AM
The next Child Dedication will be Thanksgiving weekend, December 1. There will be a one-time Child Dedication information session after the 2nd service November 17th (childcare can be provided if necessary).
For more information or to sign up, contact Anne Coughlin

What would it be like to walk on the same cobblestones Jesus walked on two thousand years ago? In March 2020 a group from Platt Park Church will be traveling to Israel. The 12-day tour will feature many historic sites from Jesus’ ministry in addition to important historical sites of the Jewish and Christian faiths. This is the trip of a lifetime and we want you to join. Whether you’ve been thinking about traveling to Israel for a while now or whether this is the first time you’ve ever considered it check out the video and email Sandy Laws with any questions.

Connect, Grow, Join a Group, Flourish

Susan Stein (Pastor of Community Integration & Soul Care) would love to chat with you and share opportunities to connect, grow and flourish at Platt Park Church!
The Daily Practice
The Daily Practice is a devotional tool from Platt Park Church for developing the habit of daily time with God.
Learning to love God takes practice. Just like exercising a muscle, our hearts are trained to love from the bottom up, through the formation of our habits and practices. Discipleship is about curating our hearts to love God and the things that God loves. Forces of our culture train us to love things other than God all the time, but spiritual practices help us to be attentive and intentional about what my heart really loves and desires. Following Jesus is more a matter of hungering and thirsting than of knowing and believing and it is our habit forming practices that form our desires over time. May this daily practice tune your heart to sing His praise.

Apple Tree Clothes Closet
The APPLE TREE CLOSET is open for shopping! Beautiful, upscale women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories are regularly donated to us by Common Threads on South Pearl and you can purchase them for a fraction of their original price.
Students and those with low income can even shop for free! The proceeds from this ministry benefit our Benevolence/Blessing Fund. Come check it out on the lower level!
(Due to space limitations we are no longer accepting donated items from the congregation).
Did you know that our church has a “Blessing Team?’” This is a group of dedicated individuals who are available to help meet the needs of people in our faith community. Our role is to support and encourage through a variety of means such as providing meals, financial assistance, visitation, and prayer.
Do you know of someone in need? Please let us know.
