Jesus said, "I was hungry and you gave me something to eat

. . . . Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." (Matthew 25: 35, 40)

Missions are at the heart of Corona. 

Meeting The Needs of Afghan Refugees

Recently religious leaders in our area met with Governor Polis and learned that by the end of February 2000 displaced refugees will be here on the ground in Colorado. As you might have suspected this has been rather overwhelming for the organizations that do refugee resettlement work in our state. The faith community is being asked to help these families who have been through more than most of us can imagine. 


We have all heard about the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and the rapid change to Taliban rule and ripped away freedoms in that country.  Now we can bring some help to the Afghan refugees coming to Colorado.  There are two ways to help listed here:


            1. The state has created an amazon wish list that makes it easy for anyone to support Afghan refugees who have been assigned to Colorado. This is a simple way for all of us to make a difference. Would you consider using the link below to purchase something big or small that will help individuals and families as they start their new lives? Once an item is purchased it will be shipped to a refugee family. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/536K2SGRN647?ref_=wl_share


            2. Housing in the Denver metro area is at the top of the needs list right now. One thing you can do is to communicate any housing ideas you might know about to the appropriate people.  Perhaps you know of someone with an Airbnb, basement apartment, or rental property.  Perhaps they would be able to help some refugees who are looking for a 6-12 month rental. The state is not asking people to do this for free as each refugee family has a rent stipend. People who are interested in doing this or who want to learn more should email crsp@state.co.us

Serving our neighbors in a pandemic

Our vision at Corona Church is to become a community of deeply rooted followers of Jesus, loving our neighbors. Right now there are many different ways we can meet the needs of others to love and serve our community.


As our city is locked down due to the COVID-19 Virus, the needs of the most vulnerable people in Denver only increase. Families that had relied on schools feeding their kids are struggling. People in homeless situations are having an even harder time finding meals.

Two faith-based organizations on the front lines of these needs in our neighborhood are Open Door Ministries and Christ’s Body Ministries. Christ’s Body Ministries is providing sack lunches five days a week on Lincoln Street. Open Door Ministries is distributing food to vulnerable families in our neighborhood.

Both organizations have been long-standing mission partners of Corona Church. We encourage you to consider giving to one or both of these organizations. If you have enough food to eat, these ministries could use your financial support during this crisis.

(If you are younger than 60, and 100% healthy, Open Door Ministries will also accept food drop-offs at 660 S Decatur, Denver, CO 80219. Nonperishables are accepted 9 AM-5 PM, Monday-Saturday. Look for the sign on the front door indicating where to leave the item. Call or text David at 720-323-2530 with delivery questions.)


Stay connected with the people in your neighborhood to see how you can offer assistance to those that may be vulnerable or high-risk. We encourage your to join a neighborhood app like NextDoor or reach out to your immediate community by leaving a note on their door. Need more resources to learn how to help your neighbors?
