What would happen if Pulpit Rock was the most unexpectedly welcoming place in Colorado Springs? Where everyone – regardless of who they are or where they’ve come from – is welcomed in their humanity, their dignity, and their worth?
One of the things we’ve learned through the Christmas Offering is to focus on God’s Kingdom not on the “kingdom of Pulpit Rock.” We have been blown away at what God can accomplish when we stop caring who gets the credit and we just step in and help.
Rachel Bennett shares about how their Halloween Potato Party created space to connect with people in their neighborhood: “We moved into our home almost 2 years ago. Over this time, we have met a few neighbors but haven’t necessarily felt like a community. We wanted to provide an opportunity to bring people together.
The noise of the week and the noise within is deafening, but sitting in those desks, facing each other, we close our eyes, and Jesus calms the “storms”. The room and our hearts are quiet, and it’s in that place, in a public-school classroom, that God has taught me to pray.
We have some super exciting news … we have reached a benchmark with CarePortal. Please stop and take a moment to celebrate with us!
At Pulpit Rock, we believe that one of the most effective ways to change the world is to partner with organizations that are uniquely equipped to help in ways or places we cannot. So we look for organizations we can support in bringing hope, healing and restoration to our broken and hurting world.
13-year-old Megan Wood shares how a recent trip to Haiti changed her understanding of one of Jesus’ miracles and encouraged her in her belief that God will always deliver.
A couple Saturdays ago many of us spent the morning serving and loving our city. More than 3,000 volunteers from all across our city, including 200 from our very own church, joined together on 100 projects to beautify, rebuild and restore Colorado Springs. All because we love our city. Here are some of the stories.
Ten hours, eight leaders, four vans, forty 5th and 6th graders. Even with the oscillating attitudes of the puberty stricken children and the smell of pungent youngsters, it had been SO worth it. Because these 11-12 year olds are going through some of the most difficult years of their life. And I want to be a part of that.
“At that time, we thought we are helpless & we have no one beside us so we felt desperate & forgotten but when we heard your prayer for us & received the money you sent, we were happy & encouraged to live again. Thank you & God bless you.” Keep doing your thing, church.
