How do you get 30,000 diapers for families at no cost to them? How do you furnish a home for a struggling family? How do men and women from different churches come together each week to maintain a resale store which repurposes preowned material goods to bless our community? It takes people and organization. Just in the past few months, volunteers from over 30 churches in the South Denver Metro area have come together under Love in the Name of Christ’s leadership. Most recently, Love INC along with pastors from Littleton United Methodist Church and Little Christian Church met with Littleton city leaders about the housing crisis. At the same time, Love INC’s new Furnishing Hope ministry was in action with men from St. Luke’s United Methodist, Our Father Lutheran and South Suburban Christian delivering furniture to a family hard hit by the Covid crisis.
It’s incredible to see what God can do through His local believers.
Did you know that we get 85% of the diapers for the year between February and May? Love INC’s faithful Church Partners typically hold a donation drive each Spring and their generosity is such a blessing to the diaper ministries. These Diaper Ministries are a first step for many of our current clients to reach out to Love INC so thank you to St. Luke’s UMC, Heritage UMC, West Bowles Community, Pax Christi Catholic, Littleton UMC and St. Mark Catholic. An additional 16,000 of the diapers were collected along with back-to-school clothing for children at an event sponsored by South Suburban Christian, Mission Hills and Columbine United. Now people from St. Frances Cabrini Catholic, Authentic Life, Valley View Christian and Heritage United Methodist are busy processing the clothes for the July back-to-school event for families.
People have been connected to resources by the Love INC Connection Center phone volunteers who come from St. Mark Catholic, Jubilee Fellowship, South Fellowship, along with many more churches that make up our local “Big C” Church! It is incredible to see what God can do through His local believers. How can we raise our attention, time, talents and resources to share the love of Christ? Only through God’s provision, redemption and love.
