PSC at Boulder PrideFest this Sunday

Boulder Pride Week is underway, and we will be part of the festivities this coming Sunday as we host a booth at Boulder PrideFest from 11:30am - 6:00pm. Stop by the PSC booth ( Booth 104 off of 13th Street and right beside o ur friends at First Congregational Church) at Boulder Central Park and say 'hello' and meet new friends.

 As a congregation that embraces everyone, this is a wonderful way for us to celebrate our beautiful and diverse community with LGBTQ friends and allies.

The day will be jam-packed with activities and amazing community partners sharing information, Pride merchandise galore from Out Boulder County and other wonderful vendors. Jewelry from talented artists, photo booths, give-aways all over the park, and multiple activities in the Health and Wellness Area and the Youth and Family Area.

Finally, permit me a "Throwback Thursday" moment by sharing an article I wrote two years ago about my experience at Denver PrideFest with my church at the time (Calvary Baptist Church of Denver) and my two children. Read the article HERE

I look forward to sharing Boulder PrideFest with them this coming Sunday and with you, my Pine Street Church friends.


Pine Street Church's love and sympathy is extended to the family of Rev. Karen HadleyDike (Jerome, Nathaniel and Christina). 
A beloved and longtime Pine Street Church member and leader, Karen became ill with acute pancreatitis while serving recently as a volunteer missionary in Bosnia alongside her husband Jerome. The illness rapidly developed into severe sepsis, and she was eventually medically evacuated to Paris, France for what would be two emergency surgeries.

After two weeks in Paris at the American Hospital fighting a hard physical battle, Karen went forever to be with God on September 5th at 12:15 a.m.

As her beloved Jerome wrote: "She has fought the good fight, run a great race and finished the course. Her Spirit has been set free..."

Daughter Christina also wrote: "Thank you to everyone that supported and prayed for us during this difficult time. My mother was a reverend, nurse, mentor, loving wife, best friend, world traveler, up for any adventure, and so much more."

A memorial service to celebrate Karen's life is set for Sunday, September 16, at 2:00 p.m. in the Pine Street Church sanctuary. Condolences may be sent to Jerome HadleyDike, 925 Lincoln St., #3C, Denver CO 80203.

With multiple emergency hospital stays and surgeries in foreign countries, out-of-pocket medical expenses are staggering. Friends at Pine Street Church have set up a GoFundMe page to help relieve some of the financial burden incurred. You are encouraged to donate and share as you are led. Every donation helps no matter the size. CLICK HERE to read more about how you can help.

Crop Walk 2018

Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, but it doesn't have to be this way. Ending hunger is possible, and it is possible in our lifetime. You can help make it happen.

For nearly half a century, CROP Hunger Walks have ensured that more people worldwide have access to nutritious, sustainable food sources. From combating droughts in Nicaragua to providing agricultural training in Indonesia to stocking shelves in hundreds of food pantries across the United States, CROP Hunger Walks help end hunger by raising funds to support local food programs and the international anti-hunger work of Church World Service.

Stand with neighbors in your community who rely on food assistance programs. Partner with parents worldwide as they ensure a bright future for their children. Support those struggling in the face of grinding poverty and open up new doors of opportunity for them.

This year's walk is on Sunday October 21st. If you're interested in sponsoring this years walk by participating as a walker please contact Debbie Setlock for a registration form. Be sure to use our Pine Street CHurch Team Page to join our team and help us meet our church wide goal of $5,000!
