Denver Inner City Parish
First Plymouth’s connection with Denver Inner City Parish goes back more than 50 years. Formed by a group of churches that included First Plymouth so that we would always have a hands-on avenue for ministry in the inner city, “DICP serves approximately 25,000 people annually through 14 programs that focus on four community needs: Hunger, Education, Health & Wellness, and Community Support.” In the past 50 years DICP has been the most widely supported ministry of our congregation. From teaching in the schools to mentoring and tutoring children, from feeding the hungry to building community, from making friends to equipping children to flourish in our society, our ministries there have made a difference. The graduation rate from their high school – La Academia – is 98%, more than that of the Denver Public Schools. We at First Plymouth support the work of DICP in many ways including sponsoring them as a Share The Plate recipient and preparing and hosting a brunch at their College View campus the 3rd Saturday of every month. To help, please contact Crystal Riggins, Anne Kleinkopf, or Noanie Geistert.
