COME AND CELEBRATE OUR INAUGURAL EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE ON APRIL 17!

Remember when our community held Easter Sunrise Services at Garden of the Gods each year? It was such a wonderful time for thousands from the whole region to come together and celebrate the risen Savior on Resurrection Sunday.

Now the Gateway Prayer Garden is providing a place for us to gather again in a Garden at sunrise! Please join us Easter morning, April 17, at 6:00 AM for a special community worship service outdoors at the cross, or in the big white tent if inclement weather.

This will be a special time for friends and family to come together to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus! We are blessed to have Pastor Jeff Anderson lead our service, as he is well-known throughout the Springs region as the Senior Faith Advisor, Office of Congressman Doug Lamborn.

SPECIAL PASSOVER WORSHIP AND TEACHING TO FOLLOW EASTER CELEBRATION . . .

Easter at the Garden will be followed by two special evening worship and teaching gatherings on Passover, Monday and Tuesday, April 18 and 19 at 6:00 PM. You will be well informed on its biblical significance in history and today.  Nationally known Ed Watts and James Nesbit will be teaching, with special worship music from Matt and Rachel Lish.

LIFE ALERT!!


As a Colorado resident it is critical that you be aware of what is taking place today. There is an absolutely dreadful and evil piece of legislation being proposed today (March 9th) by the Health and Insurance Committee of your Colorado state legislature. It is HB 1279 or Reproductive Health Equity Act or RHEA. and would result in Colorado becoming the most pro-abortion state in the nation. 

If passed, here are few specifics:

  • It will legalize the killing of a human being in the womb at any stage of pregnancy, even until the moment of birth, and make it into a state law. 
  • It declares that a woman has a fundamental right to end the life of her baby.
  • The bill prohibits ALL "State or local laws, ordinances, policies, procedures, regulatory guidelines and rules, practices, executive orders, and governmental actions and their implementation, whether statutory or otherwise" from limiting or refraining any access to abortions in any way, regardless of the age of the mother. This effectively ends any parental notification laws as well.
  • It perpetuates the lie that killing a human being is "Reproductive Health Care." 

And many other egregious actions which violate the normal human conscience.  Ignore the supporters of this bill no matter who they are or what they say.

Here’s what you can do:  

This is the link to testify in person or remotely. Attached are the steps on how to do it. You can listen to the hearings here. 

CONTACT the sponsors of the bill as well your own representative.  State Sen. Julie Gonzales (Denver), Rep. Meg Froelich (Englewood), and Rep. Daneya Esgar (Pueblo).  If you’re not sure who your Representative is, you can go here. Just plug in your residence address.

CONTACT members of the Committee hearing the bill:

It's imperative that you combine action with your prayers !

Thank you.
