Opening Doors & Crossing the Threshold

Coming In to Go Out

2017 Leadership Retreat
November 10-11, 2017
Highlands Presbyterian Camp & Retreat Center

Presenter:  Ray Jones, Associate Director Evangelism, Presbyterian Mission Agency

“Many church leaders are asking the question, “How can we grow our churches?” But this is not the right question to be asking. A better question to be asking ourselves is the one that strikes at the heart of our identity; “What does it mean for us to live in the way of Jesus?” Church growth is not a bad thing, but it does not bring us to the heart of the problem we are facing, which is how we intentionally make disciples.”
“What spiritual practices/disciplines lead to the lifestyle of bearing fruit? We will examine the personal and communal practices that take us more deeply into the authentic habits that lead to sacrificial service and faith sharing.” - Ray Jones

Register at www.highlandscamp.org or by calling 303-747-2888.
Registration Deadline is Oct. 31, 2016

Cost: Full Event - $90.00 Full event price includes lodging in a quad-occupancy/single-gender room and meals from Friday dinner through Saturday lunch. Commuter - $48.00 Choose this if you are providing your own lodging and are commuting to Highlands. Commuter price includes all meals Friday and Saturday

Limited scholarships are available: Indicate your need when you register and Highlands will forward the request to the Leadership Work Group.

In an effort to stem the rising tide of suicidal desperation in our community, Denver Presbytery is bringing a Soul Shop seminar to Denver.  Soul Shop is a movement created to transform the way that faith-based communities address those impacted by suicidal desperation through equipping leaders to minister to those at risk for suicidal thinking.  It addresses those concerned for family members and friends who have suffered the trauma of losing a loved one to suicide, and those who have experienced suicidal thinking in the past. This day-long training equips leaders to create congregational cultures characterized by a readiness to engage in life-saving, life-healing conversations. 

This is the second part of Presbytery’s Mental Health initiative.  Future seminars will include identifying behavioral issues and de-escalation training.  

When: Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 8 a.m.
Where: The Presbytery of Denver (map)

"A Privileged Potluck" with Adrian Miller

The Presbytery of Denver “opens the doors” to  building reconciliation.    We’ve heard a lot about “white privilege” over the past year, but do we really know what that is? Do we know that there are many types of privilege—class, gender and race are just a few examples? To further reconciliation within the Body of Christ, the Presbytery of Denver, with the help of Adrian Miller (Executive Director of the Colorado Council of Churches), will create a sacred and safe space for food and fellowship as we explore the various forms of privilege we carry.  

On Thursday, March 30, at 6:00 p.m.  at True Light Community Church, 2620 S Parker Rd, Aurora, CO 80014, (map), please bring your favorite thing to eat, bring enough to share with others, and bring an open heart, mind and spirit to discuss this vitally important topic. All are welcome, but we ask you to RSVP by March 27.

Ministers' Communion - First Presbyterian Church in Lakewood

Next Ministers’ Communion  

We are experiencing many changes in congregational relationships, presbytery life, national actions and global interactions.   But we remain unchanged in our awareness that God is present in, with, through and among us all.  That presence, of course, is an active presence, bringing into being a new creation and connecting us in networks of grace, justice, hope and peace through Christ’s love.  Already we have a connection as ministers (and educators, commissioned ruling elders, candidates and inquirers, too!) in this Presbytery.  And on Thursday, March 9 at 11:30 a.m., I invite you all to celebrate that connection and claim Christ’s presence with us in a time of Worship and Sacrament at First Lakewood Church. Following the service we will go to a near-by restaurant, selected by host pastor Christine Beitzel, for lunch and fellowship together.  Please plan to join together.  We ask your RSVP by March 7.

Sexuality and the Pastorate


Let's be honest, we are told what not to do but no one supports clergy in what it means to have a healthy sex life.  Its not a switch that we can turn on and off and yet knowing the rules what to do? Join us for a panel and honest discussion about what does it mean to be a pastor and a sexual human being?  We know about no fly zones; but no one really explained about what to do with our feelings when they arise.  We will explore taking healthy responsibility for our feelings. This is going to be an authentic conversation among ministers.

Why Pre-Register?

Pre-Registration, on-line is not required, but helpful.  The Stated Clerk of the Presbytery of Denver keeps the rolls and records of attendance of the Assembly meetings.  This information is necessary to help calculate the balance of Teaching Elders and Ruling Elders participating in meetings of the presbytery, and is reported to you in the statistical report. Please be sure to check the minutes for your attendance at meetings and let us know if you have questions.

Pre-Registering also helps us get a head count for dinner. The hosting church prepares and makes arrangements for the meal we share together. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us with the planning process for Assembly meetings.

PLEASE COME EVEN IF YOU DON'T PRE-REGISTER. You will be asked to fill out a short form at the registration table with your name, email, church and status. Pre-Registering on-line helps to eliminate this step, allows us to create a name tag, aids in accurate information for our records and helps to have enough food for the meal. Pre-registration, on-line is appreciated.     ~ Thank you! ~
