2020 CHALLENGE FUND
Here’s a glimpse into a few of the ways your gifts to the 2020 Challenge are being used to spark life-change and meet tangible needs in the Pikes Peak region.
- The 2020 Challenge has supported 23 local, small businesses, 19 ministries, and dozens of families and individuals with vital funds and timely provision. One young mother, fleeing an abusive situation, needed support to get herself and her child to family out of state. Your generosity helped them reach safety.
- Donations to our ACTS food pantry have provided over 40,000 meals in the last year, serving families in poverty, exhausted hospital workers and more. Our partner schools receive backpacks full of food to share with kids experiencing food insecurity. You equipped our ACTS ministry to come alongside long-term care facilities and a Colorado prison that had been hit hard by COVID. And you’re paying it forward: ACTS has been able to support additional local food pantries that were experiencing increased demand and empty shelves.
- 2020 Challenge funds allowed us to further our partnership with the Pikes Peak Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the local chapter of a civil rights organization founded by Martin Luther King, Jr. and to support two small, Spanish-speaking churches in our city facing financial hardships.
- You made it possible for Woodmen Kids to offer a free digital Summer Day Camp for 1,500 boys and girls, many of whom don’t have a home church. What a special opportunity to share the love of Jesus! Will you join in praying for these kids?
Thanks for being part of the 2020 Challenge. We hope you'll join us in continuing to pray for our city and for those who are hurting. We look forward to seeing how God will move in the Pikes Peak region, as we place our hope in Him and seek to share His love in tangible ways with our neighbors and our community.
