The Adopt-a-Block program is an outreach that demonstrates Godʼs unconditional love to the Denver community through practical acts of service. These acts of service range from lawn care and home repair to delivering toys for Christmas and playing games in the neighborhood on an event Saturday. DDC partners with Denver Housing Authority and Denver Parks and Recreation in several locations to serve and love the community.
The vision of Adopt-a-Block is to build long-term relationships with the people we interact with on an outreach Saturday. As we serve each week, we believe that God is creating supernatural change and making a lasting impact in the lives of each person with whom we meet. Adopt-a-Block provides vision and structure to the body of Christ so that through relationship-building and joyful service, Christʼs love revolutionizes communities, one block at a time!
The beauty of Adopt-a-Block is that a person does not have to be a highly trained minister in order to take part. Anyone who loves God, loves people, and is willing to serve can play a vital role. If people can bake cookies, play basketball or just make someone feel special, they are more than qualified to show love to the hurting and the lost. The “blocks” are the perfect arena to discover and use the individual talents God has designed in each person!
