Community Outreach Volunteers

ROP is seeking everyday Christians to reach out to meet the needs of the marginalized adults, families, and children in our community through a choice of several large community outreaches each year. Outreaches include Easter, Back to School BBQ, Thanksgiving Dinner, and Christmas Family Blessing Party. There is usually a 4 – 6-hour commitment for each outreach.

Motel BBQ Outreach

ROP is seeking everyday Christians to reach out with a small group of 6 to 12, to meet the needs of the marginalized adults, families, and children living in motels close to our building. Great opportunity to love on needy people simply by offering a hot meal, hanging out, and praying with them. A wonderful introduction to urban relational ministry in the city on one-time basis – usually on a Saturday afternoon in about 4 hrs. (eg. 4-8 p.m.) Email Vicki Bryant or call 303-898-0649.


Bring a group or family to completely clean one or more of our ROP ministry program rooms. Something more exciting? Combine an urban experience with a service project and help wash sleeping bags, pillows, etc. at our local laundromat along with a ROP staff member. Learn about urban missions as you get the chance to experience our community.

Homeless Gift Bag

Not only for the holidays but year-round, we seek to meet the emergency needs of the homeless men and women that are seeking help. Would your church or small group prayerfully consider gathering supplies or creating some gift bags to help us bless these brothers and sisters? Each bag contains a warm hat, gloves, scarf, warm socks, beef jerky, a bag of sweets or cookies, insulated mug, devotional or Bible, and one cold weather item such as a hoodie, jacket or sweatshirt.

Small Group Immersion

Come, visit for a night, a weekend or a whole week of ministering in an urban multi-cultural community, while learning about God's heart for the poor and His call to service. ROP offers accommodations and access to devotional studies or staff testimonials.
If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, email Vicki Bryant or call her at 303-898-0649.

SELAH Holidays and Family Outreaches

When finances are tight, holidays often go unnoticed or under-celebrated. We look for groups to come and be part of the outreaches a bash for our children with a Christian message. Consider joining another small group to provide an afternoon of fun, including cake or a small gift for each kid, and a meal (i.e. hot dogs, pizza, etc).
Email Ashley Leopold or call 720-859-2513 if you are interested in hosting a birthday party at ROP, or you would like more information in upcoming outreaches to kids and families in the community..

Meals for Kids

Mondays or Wednesday evenings – The children and youth we are serving not only come hungry for love, truth, and acceptance but also food. We provide a warm snack for our children every Monday evening and for youth every Wednesday night. Consider committing to provide all or part of a “meal” one night.
