Along with these ministries, Church in the City-Beth Abraham has continued to expand our efforts to reach our City with the love and hope that comes from our Lord. This past summer we had partnered with other ministries to reach 3 communities in the Denver Metro Area with the good news of the Gospel! These areas deal with poverty, crime, and oppression. Our ministry partners include World Challenge (ministry of the late David Wilkerson), Vertical Cry (who have a heart for the housing projects), City Kids USA, and Somebody Cares Denver.
