Missions at CEH
Missions are an important part of our congregational life at CEH. Our Mission Team is looking for new members with new ideas for Missions. Please contact our church office for the next meeting date. All are welcome!
Missions are an important part of our congregational life and budget at CEH. One way we support mission is financially through our four annual PC(USA) Offerings:
One Great Hour of Sharing: This offering supports The Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Program, Food Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People.
Pentecost Offering: This offering helps children and youth. 40% is donated to a local agency to support at-risk children and 60% goes to the Presbytery of Denver to help child advocacy and the Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) program. Our local Grand Beginnings received the 40% the last two years
Peace and Global Witness Offering: This offering has 75% going to the Presbytery of Denver for peace making initiatives and 25% going to a local agency that supports peace. Mind Springs Mental Health Agency was the recipient in 2019.
Christmas Joy Offering: This offering supports the Presbyterian Board of Pensions and Presbyterian related schools and colleges.
Our Mission Team meets every other month to plan a “Mission of the Month” (MOM). This is a specific mission that promotes interest, hands-on help, and/or financial donations to a local or global non –profit group or agency. Here are just some of the MOMs we have sponsored recently:
Cranmer Chapel Community Dinner: In January, we provided a free Friday meal to our resort workers and community. A total of 185 meals were served with 40 CEH volunteers.
Food Bank: We provide non-perishable food and Safeway and City Market food cards to the community. In 2019, we served over 400 adults and children.
Shop Smart: By just shopping at Safeway or City Market, we earned monies to use directly for outreach/mission projects. Pine Ridge Reservation and Bethel Mission were just two of several recipients.
October Soup Supper: In conjunction with our preschool, we sponsored a soup supper with over 50 volunteers and raised $2300 for our preschool.
Mountain Family Center: We donated $480 to this local agency to support its many community programs.
School Kits: We assembled and sent 40 school kits to the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Program.
Adopt-a-Family for the Holiday: We provided gifts and food cards for five families and 20 children, sponsored through Mountain Family Center.
