The Christ Clinic is helping to fill a vast need in our community, and they provide physical care with a spiritual component. What an amazing combination! How can we as a congregation at Saint John’s help support this community resource?
Since the clinic is entirely free and run completely by volunteers, there is an ongoing list of needs of the clinic. In January, we will collect supplies the Christ Clinic needs in order to continue operation and service to the northern Colorado community. Please consider donating supplies to help continue the outstanding mission and service of the Christ Clinic! There will be a box by the Welcome Center for donations.

“Hesed” is a Hebrew word that means “kindness”, “mercy”, “loyalty”, “loving-kindness” or “steadfastness.” It’s the way God intends us to live together—a “love your neighbor as yourself”, active, selfless, sacrificial, caring-for-one-another brand of living contradictory to our fallen natures. The “Heseders” are continually looking to work together to share some small measure of God’s extraordinary love. Won’t you join us?
