Christian Charity for low-income families in Denver Colorado.

On Saturday, December 18th, 2010 volunteers from Northglenn United Church of Christ gathered to put together food baskets for low-income families in the community. The church has been assembling these baskets, which include a frozen turkey, eggs, milk, butter, potatoes, apples, oranges, rice, beans, and other assorted grocery staples, for over 30 years.

The program has grown from a dozen to 91 food baskets this year. This was due, in part, to the efforts of the event organizers, Mary K and Greg Birdwhistell, who scoured the sales at local groceries, to buy the baskets' contents at the most inexpensive prices. Donations from church members for the baskets also increased due to the elevated need in the community for food assistance.

Fifty nine of the baskets went to Access Housing which provides housing to low-income families and individuals. The remaining baskets went to families of Hospice patients and neighborhood families in need.

Reverend Cal Kemper said "We give because it's the natural thing to do. When we realize the gift we have been given in Jesus, it's a spontaneous response in us to give back." Mary K Birdwhistell, added that it "pretty much makes Christmas for me."

Northglenn United Church of Christ is an open and affirming congregation that welcomes everyone. It is located at 10500 Grant Street, Northglenn, Colorado.

We encourage everyone who shares our caring and loving nature to help us to help those that need it the most. Many families need our help all year long. Please give from your heart.

Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians Chapter 13

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

The desire to help and to share our abundance with others is part of our 2011 Christian Fellowship.
