Weekly Words - 9/7/17

Dear FBCD Family & Friends:

Thank you to everyone who donated to our “One Great Hour of Sharing” (OGHS) special offering for Hurricane Harvey relief work in Texas and Louisiana. We will continue for the next couple of Sundays to receive over-and-above offerings for these efforts.

As you may know, the southeast region of our country is anticipating Hurricane Irma to make landfall in Florida this weekend. The effects of this storm are yet to be known but we can assume much relief effort and support will be needed there too.

During our services to come, you can give (or given again) to OGHS through FBCD’s weekly offering by noting on the pew envelope and/or your check “OGHS-Hurricane Relief."

UPDATE: Former member and musician of FBCD, Scot Pankey, has been able to return to his home to collect items but his house and neighborhood have sustained major damage. Scot’s spirits are good and he’s grateful for many blessings even in the face of many challenges. Please keep him in your prayers.

Thank you in advance again for your generosity. Let us keep the tens of thousands of people and communities impacted by these storms in our prayers for the days and months to come.


First Baptist Church of Denver is a welcoming and affirming, inclusive Christian community that embraces diversity, engages personal faith, and serves with compassion.
