ODM eMinute: A Summer of Urban Immersion
June 30th, 2017
As June comes to a close, we have already hosted over 200 youth and adults in our Urban Immersion program! We love welcoming groups to the ODM block, offering up their summer vacation time to learn and serve in urban Denver. Our groups have spent their time engaging in our community, attending church at Open Door Fellowship, cleaning, gardening, and reaching out to the homeless population.
This past week we had 38 people from Maurice Reformed Church in Iowa join us. We packed everyone into Antioch House (pictured above) and enjoyed getting to know this huge group of middle school students and leaders. In the middle of the week, our interns took the group down to Civic Center Park and did something unique called "Pop Up Church". The group found an open area in the park and each student briefly shared their testimony and they sang songs of praise. They finished their time by hanging out with the homeless folks that had gathered around them.
If you are interested in bringing a group to ODM for an Urban Immersion experience, you can learn more at this link. We are excited for what God has in store with the groups joining us this July and August!
