GMUMC supports a large variety of charitable groups through their time, talents and donations. The Action Center in Lakewood is one of our primary organizations we work with to impact our community in a number of ways....by organizing food drives, supporting backpack and school supply drives, and the Holiday Gift Shop. Our members provide dinners for The Ronald McDonald House several times a year. Each December, the Outreach Committee hosts a sale of products from the Women’s Bean Project with all sales going back directly to the Women’s Bean Project. We support Family Promise of Greater Denver by attending their annual fundraiser and by providing meals for the participants. Each year, GMUMC holds a cereal drive for Project Angel Heart, and we work with Bonfils Blood Center to host blood drives at the church. Clothing and donations are regularly collected for The Gathering Place, which serves women, transgender individuals, and their children who are experiencing poverty and homelessness. GMUMC is part of the West Metro Interfaith Coalition supporting Habitat for Humanity, building homes and hosting fundraising efforts at our annual Pumpkin Patch. Several fundraisers are supported through GMUMC’s participation in walk/run events such as Alzheimer’s Memory Walk, MS 100, Race for the Cure, and Second Wind Walk.
Our building serves as a meeting place for a number of community groups and organizations, including Alcoholics Anonymous, Rocky Mountain Ukulele Orchestra, Lakewood Symphony, Weight Watchers, Girl Scouts, Green Mountain Civic Association, and several homeowners associations.
