Helping Orphans by Providing Essentials
2023 Spring is a Time for HOPE Brunch
Rev. Grace Imathiu, senior pastor of First United Methodist Church, Evanston, Illinois, spoke eloquently on the "Prophetic Imagination." She is the author of the books Matthew’s Message: Good News for the New Millennium and Words of Fire, Spirit of Grace.
2023 Faith in Action Award was presented to Estes Park United Methodist Church for sponsoring five $3,000 homes for AIDS grandparents in Maua, Kenya. This also enrolls the child in school. Their campaign started before Christmas, with a Valentine's Day ending. Originally their goal was to build one home, but instead they ended up creating their own Estes Village!
Clietta Terry chaired this year’s event. Benefit helps support over 300 AIDS orphans in Kenya.
Music was performed by the Denver Children's Choir, Dr. Michael Williams & Daryl Walker. Rev. Ann Lantz, Pastor of Estes Park UMC, gave the invocation. Justin Levy, Assistant Director of Marketing & Communications, University of Denver Newman Center was again our Master of Ceremonies.
