City Engagement

God is at work in Colorado Springs.

Our deep desire as a church is to discover where He is already moving and join in His work! We ask: What do we know about God? What do we know about ourselves as a church? What do we know about our city? In answering these questions, we find the places where—as Frederick Buechner put it—our deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.

CityServe Weekend 2018

The same heart for service that beats in First Pres is shared by dozens of churches around Colorado Springs. Since 2015, these churches have been coming together for an annual CityServe weekend and a year-round passion for "bringing peace and prosperity to Colorado Springs through tangible acts of service." 

CityServe 2018 is October 5-6. View Details >>

First Pres City Engagement Priorities

Of the many important needs in Colorado Springs, we are primarily called to address these three with passion:

  • Homelessness and housing solutions.

  • Refugee care.

  • Renewal of the southeast region of our city.

Partnerships

We come alongside front-line service providers and offer our time, care, skills and finances to help them achieve long-term transformation in our city. Use the finder and map at the bottom of this page to view our Local Partners. 

Pathways 

We provide broad and deep engagement opportunities to all who want to bring God’s peace and wholeness—His Shalom—to our city.  

Volunteer Opportunities  

Winter IHN - November 25 - December 2 

Four times every year, First Pres hosts four families who would otherwise be homeless, providing food, shelter and community. Many volunteers are needed, including overnight hosts, set-up/tear-down, evening hosts and team members to buy groceries and make hot meals.
