Moving Forward with Our Justice Work

Please join us, Sunday, August 18th as we move forward with our justice work and into a new school year.  One Sunday each month after a shortened service, Prairie lives out its principles and vision to work for justice in our community. We will celebrate the transition to a new school year with a Blessing of the Backpacks. Everyone is encouraged to bring their Back Packs to church filled with donations to the Parker Task Force Back Pack Program that serves students experiencing homelessness in Parker. Students take backpacks filled with food home on Fridays after school for the weekends. Check out the list of their needs here. Please see all of the details below. We will also have special guest, Bobbie D’Addario and a guest accessing the support with our partners addressing homelessness at Aurora Warms the Night and Bridge House. We hope you will join us.

As mentioned above for Service Sunday on August 18th. We will be collecting needed items for the Weekend Back Pack Program through the Parker Task Force. Learn more here. The program is needing the following items:
  • Canned ravioli
  • Ramen noodles
  • Instant oatmeal
  • Fruit snacks
  • Goldfish crackers
  • Individual microwave meals
  • Granola bars
  • Pudding cups
  • Juice boxes
After the service we will go out into the neighborhood around Prairie to collect donations left on porches. Then we will organize items to deliver to the Task Force.
