Promises, Promises Sunday School online:



We are a family of God, living our faith and growing by: Joyfully surrendering to Jesus, freely sharing our lives and humbly embracing the hurting.

During the week, our members and friends can be found scattered throughout the Denver metro area. We come from all walks of life--we are young and old and middle aged: educators, chaplains, hard hats, business people and unemployed, married and single and divorced, full of faith and full of doubts and sometimes full of both. Whether we are together or apart, in our church building (built in 1908) or in our homes, schools, neighborhoods or workplaces, our prayer is that we be a family of God, living our faith and growing by joyfully surrendering to Jesus, freely sharing our lives and humbly embracing the hurting. We would love to have you join our family as we seek to live this life together!

  • Praying For Persecuted Believers

    Today, just like in New Testament times, Christians are persecuted all around the world for following Jesus. Currently, 1 in 12 believers experience hostility as a result…

Upcoming Events

God has called each of us to practice Hebrews 13:3, “Remember your fellow believers in prison as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.” We humbly come alongside persecuted believers and lift them up to God through fervent prayer. We also share our lives with them by writing letters of encouragement, supplying Bibles and Christian resources, and meeting some of their physical, medical and practical needs through ministries such as Open Doors USA and Voice of the Martyrs. An unexpected blessing of this Prayer Group has been the way God has worked to allow us to care for and support one another. We have welcomed many new members over the years and would love to have more people join us the second Monday of each month at 9:15am in room 12.

Bible Song: from Psalm 93

"The Lord reigns, He is robed in majesty; the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength; indeed the world is established, firm and secure.Your throne was established long ago; You are from all eternity...Your statutes, Lord, stand firm; holiness adorns Your house for endless days."

Bible Reading - II Samuel 5:1-5

Prayer: "Son of David, throned on a cross, crowned with thorns, and coronated among tears and taunts, You appeared nothing like a king. But, through Your obedient sacrifice, You are my eternal King, my selfless Sovereign, my loving Lord. Willingly, I bend the knee, asking you to govern me by Your Word and Spirit, to guard and keep me in the freedom You have won for me. Amen (HC 31)


"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."  Matthew 5:6
