Partners in Ministry

The Partners in Ministry Designated Offering Program at Grace is one of the ways that we are Reaching Out in Christ's Love. Each month, we pass the plate for an organization that aligns with our Mission, and about whose mission our members and friends feel passionately. Our impact is doubled thanks to the Grace Foundation, who match every gift dollar for dollar, up to $2,000/month.

October 2022: Lutheran Family Services


Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains is a faith based, non-profit human services agency providing adoption, foster care, older adult, prevention, and refugee services since 1948.

 

They provide help and support to children and families during their most challenging times regardless of race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation or age. At LFSRM, they believe that all people, from the newborn to the most elderly, are valued members of our community.

 

They serve Albuquerque, Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley, Las Cruces, Salt Lake City, and Santa Fe, partnering with communities to meet the unmet needs affecting their most vulnerable populations.

 

LFSRM strives to recognize areas in need and to find ways to serve those who have seemingly become invisible. Every day, hundreds of people turn to LFSRM for refuge, help and hope.

November 2022: Harvest of Hope Pantry


Harvest of Hope Pantry opened its doors in 2012. Their sole mission is food assistance. They offer a client-choice shopping experience where individuals select preferred foods within our shopping allowances.

 

They are the only food pantry in Boulder that serves everyone who comes to the door. By offering separate shopping times for Clients with Kitchens and Clients without Kitchens, they address the individual needs of both populations.

For our Clients without Kitchens, the pantry ensures that their shopping experience allows them to leave with a daily amount of supplemental food to fill the gap that other services are unable to offer. Providing easy-to-eat foods, such as protein bars, pop-top canned items, yogurt, produce and fresh sandwiches, gives clients easy-to-transport foods.

 

Their Clients with Kitchens have the opportunity to select refrigerated and frozen foods, in addition to fresh produce and bread, with consideration to food safety. A variety of dairy foods, perishable prepared meal items and protein foods, are available to these clients with refrigeration. They have the opportunity to shop one day each week.

December 2022: Boulder Shelter for the Homeless
