At First Church

Card Making

This group of women meets at church to make greeting cards on the 3rd Saturday of each month. Some of these cards are given to the church staff to use in their ministries.Those interested in joining this group and/or inviting friends who might enjoy this afternoon of fellowship and crafting should contact: Marj DeBoer or Carol Kats.

Global Bazaar

First Church has hosted a global, fair trade market place for the past 8 years on the first Saturday of December. This one-day event takes the skills and time of at least 50 volunteers. Contact: shirley@firstcrcdenver.org for more information.


Helping Hands

The Helping Hands ministry supplies meals to members and those they know who need a little help with food while recuperating from an illness or surgery, who have experienced a loss, who have just moved, who have difficulty making their own meals, or for other reasons not listed here. These meals are frozen and placed in the small Helping Hands freezer in the church kitchen. If you would like a meal or would like to contribute food, contact: Joey Vander Ark.

Mentor a new member

Whenever you find yourself in a new environment, it is comforting to have someone familiar with the "layout of the land" to come alongside and offer their experience, wisdom, encouragement and friendship. Contact the office #303.733.4936 if you have the availability to mentor a new member.

Missionary Support Team

This team communicates with each of our missionaries and their families, faithfully remembering birthdays, anniversaries and other special events. They also offer hospitality services to visiting missionaries and are an invaluable link between First Church and her missionaries. If you have an interest in communicating with our missionaries or supporting them in other ways,

contact: Ken Englesman or Al & Kay Bierling

Purchase Fair Trade Coffee

We proudly serves Fair Trade coffee at all church events. Fair Trade coffee ensures a fair wage for the small coffee farmers in developing countries. One-pound bags are available for sale in the church foyer. Contact: Shirley Van Heukelem

Sew and Sews

The Sews & Sews ministry is a group of women who meet twice monthly to sew infant and children's clothing and accessories for special needs groups, such as Denver Health Medical Center, a Haitian orphanage, and Bethany Christian Services. New sewers are always welcome.

Teaching & Leading

If you want to share the life of Christ with others through teaching or leading adults or children, we have opportunities for you to use your gifts. Our Gems, Cadets youth group and Sunday School classes are led by people with a vision for ministry and heart for Christ. Contact Shirley Van Heukelem (shirley@firstcrcdenver.org) if you have questions or would like to serve in this way.

Worship Arts

At First Church we encourage our members to use their artistic expressions during our worship services so that God is praised and his church is strengthened. Examples include presenting scripture, visuals in the worship space, drama, dance, singing, instrumentalists and tech support.

Contact: Kyle Cooper, Worship Coordinator at kylecooper@firstcrcdenver.org if you have gifts or resources that you would like to share in this way.
