Public Spirit

We help those in need

We are a congregation that provides meals for those in need, shelter for women who are homeless, and a training center for newly arrived immigrants and refugees.

First Baptist has a history of public outreach to our Denver community. We were the one of the first sites to host a Safe Outdoor Space ("SOS") to house individuals from our community on a temporary basis in a private, heated tent. Our main initiative, especially following the pandemic, has been to provide lunches for our partner Capitol Hill United Ministries that are then distributed out to organizations around the community, such as the Warren Residences.

CASE STUDY: College Matondo, in Cap Haitian, Haiti.

In 2017 First Baptist Church of Denver, together with the Evergreen Association of Baptist Churches, raised money for an elementary school, College Matondo (picture to right), in Cap Haitian, Haiti. Evergreen has been part of the planning and development of this school since its beginning in 2012.

The school is sponsored by the Haitian Baptist Convention and is being supported by two of our American Baptist missionaries, Nzunga Mabudiga and Kihomi Ngwemi. In 2015 Rev. Henderson and Michael Holmes participated in a mission team to Haiti to see the ongoing work happening in Cap Haitian.
