Announcements

Mask Information

The City of Denver has issued a public health order requiring masks for everyone ages 2+ in indoor public spaces until January 3, 2022. For your safety and the safety of those around you, please wear a mask while in worship at Platt Park Church.

We want to remind everyone of a few things we are doing at PPC in light of this reality.

1. We continue to offer both online and in person worship services so that people can remain engaged in worship with the ebb and flow of their comfort level in group settings.
2. We encourage those who are seeking a greater degree of social distance to consider sitting in the balcony when they attend in-person worship since there tends to be ample space to spread out up there.
3. We continue to ask that kids ministry staff and kids wear masks while on site.

Marshall Fire Shoe Drive

Until January 30, 2022

Donation bins in the Social Hall & Pantry (outside)

Join us in helping those who are impacted by the Marshall Fire. We’ll be gathering new and very gently used shoes for families impacted by the fires. There will be bins in the Social Hall and one outside at the Pantry until January 30th
  • Shoes must be new or gently used (clean and ready to wear with no holes or serious damage). If you wouldn’t give them to a friend, please don’t donate them.
  • The most popular styles are athletic shoes (tennis, basketball, running, skate, etc.), slip-ons (i.e. Vans), canvas (i.e. Converse or Toms) flats, boots (all types), and black uniform shoes. No flip-flops, please!
  • Shoe sizes needed are kids size 8T to adult size 17. The most needed sizes are for elementary school-age children (kids size 10-size 5 youth), but all sizes are welcome.
Platt Park Church is only collecting shoes but if you would like to donate clothing or coats for the fire victims Clothes to Kids Denver in University Hills is a drop-off location for donations. For more information about drop off times and what is needed check out Clothes to Kids Denver.
Thank you for helping us spread love and serve Denver!

The pantry will be set up and stocked over the next few weeks. We would love for you to get involved! Here are a couple of easy ways to help out:
  1. Volunteer to help set up the pantry and/or restock the pantry
  2. Donate food items for the pantry (requested items include: nut butters, dry pasta and pasta sauces, canned tuna, salmon, chicken, or turkey, canned soups and chili, whole-wheat crackers, nuts and trail mixes, granola bars and power bars, dried fruits (such as apricots and raisins)

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.

Click HERE to listen on the web, or find us wherever podcasts are available by searching for “Platt Park Church” or “Daily Practice: Time with God”.

You can also listen from the Platt Park Church App!

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).

Blessing Team

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.
