St. Luke's UMC, CO Backyard Events

August 28, 2021

St. Luke’s UMC in Highlands Ranch, CO held a series of events in their backyard to re-engage and enlarge their community, bringing in new visitors and those who hadn’t been to St. Luke’s in years. Three concerts were held on their backyard stage: Gabe Mervine and Friends, the Kool Cats, and the Wesley Players presenting “Broadway Under the Stars.” Smiles and Smocks painting classes offered additional opportunities for connection. The audience enjoyed the music as the sun began to set and these backyard events raised around $4,000 for the Community Raisers program, supporting various ministries at St. Luke’s UMC.

How are you connecting with your community this summer? The Community Engagement team of the Mountain Sky Conference encourages you to pick a project, volunteer in mission, start a new group, work on leadership development – the possibilities are endless. Then, sometime between today and September 1, tell us about it! Selected stories will be celebrated via Mountain Sky communication vehicles such as Ministry Crossroads. As we continue to build our connection, we celebrate the ways that faith communities are engaged. By sharing how you are involved, you inspire others and share knowledge with those communities that have the same challenges and opportunities as you! Check out our link for more details and feel free to share across the Conference.
