Outreach Ministry

Outreach Ministry

The Outreach Ministry encourages First Plymouth members to view themselves as the hands and feet of Jesus through education about the needs of people in our community, active participation and giving to others. The Outreach Ministry meets once a month.


The Ministry designates a Share-the-Plate recipient for three of the four Sundays per month, selected from a broad base of community or international needs. These recipients receive the funds collected during worship.

Angel Tree

In November each year, we sponsor the Angel Tree. Congregants select a recipient from the tree and donate toys and clothes needed by families identified by various community organizations

Can Do Sunday

On the second Sunday of the month, congregants bring food and money to store in the Can Do Cupboard. We donate this food and money to Metro Caring, a food bank serving Denver for over 50 years.

Loaves and Fishes/Habitat for Humanity

The Loaves and Fishes Committee is First Plymouth’s outreach link to Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver. Habitat for Humanity builds affordable homes in our community and all over the world. Habitat homeowners help build their new homes alongside volunteers. 

With Habitat’s help, these homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families. Together we have built a house each year since the coalition was organized in 1998.

There is a tragic shortage of affordable housing in the Denver area and volunteers are an important part of the solution. There is always something for everyone to do, no matter your skill level.

Denver Inner City Parish

First Plymouth’s connection with Denver Inner City Parish goes back more than 50 years, in order to maintain a hands-on location for inner city ministry. DICP serves approximately 25,000 people annually, focusing on hunger, education, health and wellness, and community support. Church volunteers have been involved in teaching in the schools, providing community resources, and staffing the food bank. We also host more than 500 guests at the annual Thanksgiving Dinner.

Kentucky Circle Village

Kentucky Circle Village has been part of the outreach mission of First Plymouth for more than 60 years. It was established in 1959 to meet the growing housing needs of seniors with limited incomes and remains an important part of the affordable housing movement in the Denver metropolitan area.
