Special needs parenting is hard. We want to help.

Many families in our own church body are raising special needs children.

Special needs parenting is too big to do alone!

Did you know that 75% of Jesus’ miracles in the New Testament were for the disabled community?

Jesus had great compassion for these precious people. As a mom, I have great compassion for their parents and want to find ways that we as a church can better support their divine parenthood.

Did you know that Colorado ranks 48th in the nation for providing assistance in the form of respite for parents/caregivers of children with disabilities?

Goodness, that statistic hurts.

I believe that Night Lights is a way we can step in to help fill this painful gap.

Night Lights is a respite care organization that provides a break for parents of children with special needs, ages 1 month – 12 years.

We would love to make Pulpit Rock a host site for a monthly Night Lights program that would serve our church and our community.

Night Lights’ founder and a Denver area Night Lights program director will be set up with a table in The Gathering Place this Sunday, April 7.

If you are interested in learning more about how our church can make this happen, would you please stop by and say hello? We would love to see you!

Brady’s eyes and mischievous look pulled in this “old Grandpa” as the door opened at their home for my first visit with the foster family. They decided that they would call me Mr. Bob and I confess, my heart melted a bit with each visit, hug, wave and hearing them call out “Mr. Bob!”

A Refuge for the Weary

While the political issues are complex, at Pulpit Rock our call to love is simple. The issue is not whether or not we should welcome refugees. Here is how Pulpit Rock is planning to love and serve the refugees already in – and coming to – our city.

DHS Kinship Family Celebration

Imagine an event where government, church, individuals, organizations, and local businesses all collaborated to love and spoil people needing some recognition. Seems a bit far-fetched, doesn’t it? That dream was reality at Pulpit Rock Church a few weeks ago. In December, Pulpit Rock was honored to host the DHS Kinship Family Celebration.
