Churches all over the world celebrate Communion on the first Sunday in October to remind ourselves of our unity in Jesus Christ. The Cross Cultural Covenant Community takes this opportunity to worship together as well! We trade pastors across our churches to deepen our connections. Our pastors may preach in different languages, but they preach on the same topic from the same Bible verses on this Sunday.
On the Friday before Easter, we join together in a single, cross-cultural worship service. This worship service features Spanish, Vietnamese, and English as we prepare our hearts and souls for the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of our Lord.
The Student Opportunity Scholarship, administered by the Cross Cultural Covenant Community (CCCC) of the Presbytery of Denver, assists students by providing partial aid for books, tuition or other approved expenses for a post-secondary educational program. This scholarship is extended to students in the Cross Cultural Covenant Community’s member churches to help those who might otherwise not be able to pursue post-secondary education

Flu vaccination is important both for individuals and for society as a whole. The higher the percentage of the population vaccinated, the lower the risk for a flu epidemic in the community. And for the individual, being vaccinated may prevent flu altogether, or if flu is contracted, it tends to be milder and have fewer serious complications.
Every fall Metro Saints Covenant Community sponsors a Flu Shot Clinic on a Sunday afternoon at Iglesia Valverde. Up to 100 free flu shots are given to low-income or uninsured persons who otherwise would not be vaccinated.
Volunteer opportunities: Each year we need two or three nurses or medical assistants who have experience giving injections. Others may help with registration and logistics in the clinic. The time requirement is about two hours on a Sunday afternoon, once a year. If interested, contact Robert Williams at 303-947-5062.
This outreach ministry for the Hispanic community is held at Iglesia Presbiteriana de Valverde. We offer six levels of English instruction for adults, two civics classes for those planning to apply for U.S. citizenship, and an educational children’s program that includes help with school work. Classes are held on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon, from September through May each year. We generally have more than 100 adult students and around 30 children in the program each term.
Volunteer opportunities: Teachers and substitutes are needed for both adults and children. Teacher training is available for those without prior experience. Please contact Eunice Williams at 303-997-9978.
One of the best ways to create a strong connection between believers of different cultural backgrounds is to spend time together! Join us at our annual picnic to enjoy cross cultural cuisine and meet people from the other churches in our Covenant Community. We encourage you to say hi to those you know and then sit down for lunch with those you’ve never met. Come for the food, stay for the soccer, volleyball, or just spending time in God’s great outdoors.

What can I bring?
