Outreach/Missions supports the homeless in Colorado Springs. Members and friends of The Church at Woodmoor fill lunch bags for the working homeless each month after Worship on Communion Sundays. These are then delivered to Springs Rescue Mission where they are gratefully accepted and appreciated.
*CASA of the Pikes Peak Region is a nonprofit organization that trains and supervises volunteers to represent the best interests of victims of child abuse, neglect, and severe domestic conflict. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court and in the community.
*The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through sharing bibles.
The Church at Woodmoor contributes to *Turkeys for Veterans through the Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center.
*The Home Front Cares. The Home Front Cares was established in Colorado Springs in 2004. It primarily provides emergency & responsive support and grants for Colorado’s service members, veterans and family members who have been impacted by deployment in harm’s way. From identification of need to delivery of support often is less than 24 hours.
*Cru Our missionaries with Cru are Doug and Carey Holm. They believe that pouring into the lives of others is a key part of why we are here on this earth. In October Carey traveled to Ecuador where she was
the keynote speaker at a retreat for missionaries and women who serve in this country and who pour their lives into others. The retreat was held at a beautiful hotel in Quito, yet it was not without much worry and stress the week before because of a national strike that resulted in rioting, closing of he airport and widespread fear. Prayer Requests: Pray for these courageous missionaries in Ecuador. Pray for Doug’s trip to Cuba in December to serve
local churches in water filter distribution and evangelism. Others Cru staff on the trip will be exploring partnership opportunities for future mission trips.
*One Nation Walking Together One Nation is an organization based in Colorado Springs which transports clothing and household items to some of the poorest Native American reservations in the United States. We also accept in-kind donations for One Nation as well as some other organizations serving our Native American brothers and sisters in some very remote locations.
*Compassion International - Currently, we sponsor one child through Compassion, Laucenta Michel. Compassion International is a Christian child sponsorship program dedicated to the long term development of children living in poverty around the world.
*Tri-Lakes Cares Tri-Lakes Cares is a local community based, volunteer supported resource center whose purpose is to improve people’s lives through emergency assistance, self-sufficiency and relief programs, education and other social services. One of our annual projects is known as the Harvey Bryan Castle of cans when we collect food throughout Lent for Tri-Lakes Cares, building a tower of cans in front of the sanctuary. We also collect food year round in an ongoing drive. Non perishable food may be brought to the church anytime the office is open or on Sunday.
* La Puente, Inc La Puente is a homeless shelter in Alamosa, but it is much more than a simple shelter. La Puente serves the poorest area in Colorado providing shelter, food assistance, homeless prevention programs, job training, transitional housing and many other programs. Each year they put on a Christmas program for hundreds of low income children and adults in the San Luis Valley. The Church At Woodmoor’s involvement with La Puente goes back to La Puente’s founding in which we played a large part. This includes the Christmas Program, Adelante, PALS & the San Luis Valley Food Banks.
THE FOLLOWING ORGANIZATIONS ARE CURRENTLY SUPPORTED FINANCIALLY BY OUR OUTREACH/MISSIONS BUDGET.
The outreach /missions projects of TCAW are funded by 10% of your pledges and offerings. We also accept in-kind donations of food, clothing and household items needed by the charities we support. We do ask that only requested items Be brought to us as our storage capacity is somewhat limited. If you have very specific or large items to donate please call the office or Sue Fenton and we will try to help you find a home for them.
Periodically we consider new missionaries and organizations to support. Each organization being considered must be thoroughly vetted by the committee for fiscal responsibility. We endeavor to feed the souls as well as the bodies of those in need.
Our mission can be summed up in these words of Jesus:
“I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
“ Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Mark 16:15
