Platt Park Church Announcements in Denver, CO
“We must find our real self, in all its elemental poverty, but also in its great and very simple dignity: created to be the child of God, and capable of loving with something of God’s own sincerity and his unselfishness.”
— Ian Cron, The Road Back to You
Join us for The Road Back to You, a weekend of personal discovery exploring the Enneagram together! The Enneagram is an ancient body of wisdom that identifies nine core personality types, and how each sees and interacts with the world. Kelley Gray, an Enneagram guru, an LPC, and a dear friend will be helping us navigate “The Road Back to You.”
Cost: $85/ person, includes lodging & food!
Other Highlights (from Young Adults Pastor Gary):
I LOVE COOKING BREAKFAST! I’ll be throwing down biscuits and gravy, french toast, pancakes (banana & sweet potato), eggs, bacon, sausage…it’ll be awesome!
- Space & Time!
I’ve experienced retreats where the schedule is so packed you need to take a day off when you return. That is NOT how I plan a retreat! There will be plenty of space and free time for you to reflect personally and connect with others.
- Activity Options
Fishing, hiking, climbing, shopping, napping, reading, board games
Not much more to say here…
- And YOU!
Your presence is what will make this experience great!
Space is limited. Register now for The Road Back to You!

A 2-day gathering for the wanderers, wonderers, status quo upenders, and spiritual refugees to discover you are not alone. Featuring Sarah Bessey, Rachel Held Evans, Jen Hatmaker, Austin Channing Brown and many more.
From the Evolving Faith website (https://www.evolvingfaithconference.com/):
Your faith is changing and everything else seems to be changing with it — your relationships, your views on justice and social issues, your experience with the church, your very identity. Evolving Faith is a gathering of kindred spirits, an opportunity to learn, wrestle, worship, laugh, and commiserate as we navigate this journey through the wilderness together.
So come as you are! Doubters and dreamers are welcome. Parents and singles are welcome, Pastors and church drop-outs, LGBTQ friends and bible nerds, post-evangelicals and “happy-clappy” Pentecostals — all are welcome to the table. We hope you will leave feeling a little more inspired and a little less alone.
Contact: Gwen Vogelzang for information (If you can’t make both days, you’re welcome to attend as much as your schedule allows.)
Join us the first Wednesday of each month, from 6:30pm – 7:30pm, for an evening of worshipping God with song, as Charlie leads us in an hour of music. Come as you are and enter into the presence of God in whatever ways are meaningful for you. (Stand or sit, sing or be silent, rejoice or lament, dance or rest!) Please join us, and experience how ‘God inhabits the praises of His people!’ (Psalm 22:3).
(Childcare provided for infants and children 0-5 years old.)

The Daily Practice: 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.
