Outreach & Missions
The Youth of the Church gleaned 1339 pounds of potatoes on September 15, 2018 for the Food Banks.
*Youth for Christ. We are rural and urban and we are always about the message of Jesus. Every day at thousands of community centers, high schools, middle schools, juvenile institutions, coffee shops, and local hangouts, YFC staff and volunteers meet with young people who need Jesus. Our focus as a movement is on multiplying fruitful and sustainable ministry sites across the nation and around the world.
*Missionaries . We also support various missionaries, whose names and locations are sensitive at this time.
*Rikatak Lunch Program - The Church at Woodmoor supports students on Kwajalein with monies for their lunch program in the wake of cuts. There are 40 children that come to school at the American school (elem. and high school) on Kwajalein from the neighboring island of Ebeye. Economically, it is a very poor population and in the past the contractor overseeing the schools has contributed the major donation to provide lunches for these students. The contracts have changed, and there is no longer a donation coming from that benefactor. Lunches are not subsidized here and therefore more expensive ($3.50) than typical school lunches.
*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.
*Intervarsity Christian Fellowship We support Tomy Wilkerson. Intervarsity strives to help students make decisions that correctly shape the rest of their lives and the future of church and society. Tomy's mission is to students on Grand Cayman and surrounding islands. Many of those students were raised in Christian homes, but were tempted to fall away when they became teenagers and older. Tomy’s mission is to prevent that by developing strong disciples, reaching out to students with the gospel, doing language and cultural training as well as helping students avoid the traps of drugs and “getting in with the wrong crowd”.
*Campus Crusade For Christ. Our missionaries with Campus Crusade 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. Their primary mission involves equipping latino leaders in latin american countries. Among other things Carey has lead a team of junior high students and parents on a mission trip to a small village in Belize helping with the local school and holding camps for the children. Doug is helping give leadership to a new partnership between the Central American Theological Seminary and the Denver Seminary.
*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
Outreach and Missions of the Church at Woodmoor
For more than 35 years, Pioneers' passion has been to see God glorified among those who are physically and spiritually isolated from the gospel of Jesus Christ—from Muslim bedouins in the deserts of North Africa and animist villagers in the jungles of South America to secular humanists in Eastern Europe and middle-class Buddhist urbanites in the sprawling cities of East Asia.
