Cross of Glory has many outreach opportunities for you to participate in with us. Our goal is to support initiatives that are meaningful to our community and congregation.

Outreach Focus for February 2018:

Project Angel Heart:

Founded in 1991, Project Angel Heart’s mission is to deliver nutritious meals to improve the quality of life, at no cost, to those coping with life threatening illness such as cancer, kidney/heart/lung disease, HIV/AIDS, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. This organization is  dedicated to getting nutritious meals to people too sick to go to the grocery store, too weak to make meals for themselves or their dependents or who have to choose between purchasing medications or food. Their delivery area now includes 640 square miles in metropolitan Denver and 164 square miles in the Colorado Springs area. All meals are delivered free of charge by caring volunteers.

Outreach Focus for January 2018:

Alzheimer’s Association “MEMORIES IN THE MAKING” (in memory of Shirlee Mueller)

MIM is a creative art expression program for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. Even after people with dementia have lost the ability to use words, they are often able to express thoughts and emotions and to share memories through painting with watercolors. Some benefits include: Improves self esteem; Serves as an outlet for emotions; Increases attention span and focus; Activates neurons; Reduces isolation and provides opportunity to socialize; Taps into pockets of memory that still exist; Reconnects families. The MIM art groups meet in assisted-living communities, nursing homes and adult day programs throughout the state.
