Ways to get involved with Friendship Fellowship


Friendship Family Chapels

A special church for people with special needs

Dear Friends,

            

I am pleased to announce that Friendship Fellowship at Washington Park Chapel is celebrating our first anniversary. God has accomplished more than I know I ever could in reaching a core congregation of 40 friends, 4 counselors, mobilizing 7 missionaries  and becoming a small community in Denver.

Word and Spirit

One of the best things that happened from June last year to June 2011 is  studying God’s Word together, forming close knit relationships, and a constant outreach to people with intellectual disabilities. This year we were able to complete the first unit of Friendship Ministries’ curriculum, a full study on the Old Testament and the nature of God the Father and his plan for us. Communicating these truths through worship, stories and prayer in a chapel setting and in Friendship Hall enabled everyone who participated to experience Word and Spirit with a “renewing of hearts and minds” and clarity in purpose. (Romans 12:1)

More than a Program

From Friends to Mentors to Pastors and Leaders, Friendship is more than a program for people with intellectual disabilities.  Our main source of friends comes from an adult day program called Roundup Fellowship. Each one of our friends has a choice on Wednesdays to where they will spend their time. Staff members tell me that the moist requested choice is Friendship!  Our mission is “to be advocates to the least of these building up leaders to be advocates to the least of these”—because that is what Jesus is. As we begin a new year of Friendship we will be planting Friendship Family Chapel in the Northgate area of Colorado Springs in Sunday nights. This is part of the Word and Spirit Network from Mountain Springs Church. Would you prayerfully consider being part of our team?  Enclosed you will find a brochure and a stamped envelope for your response. Our ministry is by “invitation only.” We invite you to be part of God’s mission in sharing His love for people with intellectual disabilities, we invite agencies, schools, and families to become involved in our mission in Denver and Colorado Springs. I will call you in the coming days to set up a time where we can talk.

 

Friendship!
