Loaves and Fishes
Our congregation serves at Loaves and Fishes on Justice Center Road every other Monday. We cook and eat with the residents there. We aim to build relationships and serve the needy of our community. Cooking is not a good work we can feel good about, but sharing the love of Jesus is and cooking meals and simply eating with the residents provides a means for building friendships and sharing the love of God. You are welcome to join us. Call our office at 719-275-2456 for information on our next Monday.
We gather weekly at New Creations Inn for a time of directed prayer. If you are uncomfortable praying out loud, or have little practice in how to pray this is for you. God works through praying people and their prayers are powerful as they are put into action. Please call our office for more information, 275-2456.
We provide childcare support for a local transitional program that operates under Loaves and Fishes. If you are interested in helping provide for this great need for a wonderful local ministry, please contact our office for more information at 275-2456. a clean background check is required.
Meals on Wheels
UPC has the privilege of housing the offices for Meals on Wheels. UPC was instrumental in its beginnings in Cañon City back in the 1970's, and we have actively contributed volunteers ever since. If you have a heart for meeting the needs of those who are food insecure in our community, feel free to give us a call. Meals on Wheels is always in need of drivers. And, if you know of anyone in need of a hot meal delivered daily by caring drivers who will also check in on their safety, contact Meals on Wheels at 719-275-8458
