Community Outreach Opportunities at Saint Ambrose
There are many opportunities to serve in ministries at St. Ambrose. We support local, national and international outreach ministries. If you are interested in learning more about these ministries, please contact the church office at 303-499-3041.
The Golden Shopping Cart
The shopping cart is left in the entryway for donations of non perishable food and gently used clothing. After the first week of the month these items are delivered to Sr. Carmen or EFAA.
Second Sunday Outreach
This effort donates the loose pledge and plate from the second Sunday of the month to a ministry designated by the Outreach Committee. Anyone can suggest a service ministry for this collection, however, you are asked to make a personal presentation during worship about the ministry the week the organization is the designated recipient.
Boulder Shelter for the Homeless
A group from St. Ambrose cooks dinner at the Boulder Shelter on the first Sunday of each month. If you are interested in serving, please sign up in the entryway at St. Ambrose. www.bouldershelter.org/
Sister Carmen Center
The Sister Carmen center is located in Lafayette, and is a non denominational agency which provides emergency assistance for housing, and has a heavily used food bank. Sr. Carmen supports itself by selling gently used items in their thrift shop, which have been donated. We collect food for their food bank, and deliver the food and other donated items to them. In addition to donations of this sort, Sr. Carmen also encourages people to volunteer in the food bank and sorting donations. For more information about Sr. Carmen go to www.sistercarmen.org/
EFAA - Emergency Family Assistance Association
EFAA provides emergency assistance to families in need of housing and other services. They provide referrals to other agencies in addition to running a food bank. For more information about EFAA log on to http://efaa.org/
