Apparently generosity runs in the family.

We talk a lot about how generous you are.

Like how in the entire state of Colorado we are the church who has taken on the most CarePortal requests.
Or how our in 2019 our Love Your Neighbor team built and delivered multiple dozens of bunkbeds to those in need.
Or how you heard about a specific need for girls rescued from human trafficking and you said “Of course. How much?”
Or how you consistently blow right past our Christmas Offering goal. Every. Single. Year.

Well guess what?

Apparently generosity runs in our [church] family.

We’d like to take a moment to recognize our amazing kids at Pulpit Rock Church.

They are beautifully generous in their own right. Their giving is a testimony to their tender and compassionate hearts.

This past December we invited our kids to be part of a special offering for Kids Ministry. We joined with Orange and Compassion International through The Barnyard Project, a partnership providing financial security to kids and families through the gift of chickens, goats, pigs, and cows! These gifts provide animals to families to create a stable source of income through the sale of eggs, milk, and meat.

Like we do with you, we set a goal for their giving. The goal was to bring in funds to purchase chickens ($40), goats ($100) and pigs ($200) for families in need.

Guess what?

Our kids brought in $185 over the course of the month and a generous family matched a portion of those donations to bring us to a total of $340, enabling the purchase of all three animal categories, thus meeting our goal!

We thought this was worthy of celebrating!

We’re so proud of you, kids.

We’ve just wrapped up another year of Sports Camp and it was packed full of sports, fun, singing, dancing, and most of all, Jesus. Spicy Mike and Sweet T even made a surprise comeback! It was a fantastic week. Here’s a quick photo recap.

My pre-pre-teens and the role models they have at church.

With the recent program changes, my impressionable kids are now seeing a world where everyone, of all ages, has an important role to play in church. And with the example being set by our students, my kids will not only know that service should be a part of their teenage years, but that they actually have a place at church each Sunday.
