2024 Proposed Budget

Below are some ministry and mission highlights from the past year, as well as a summary of next year’s proposed budget. We are very grateful for your support. God has been moving and impacting lives both locally and globally through North Metro Church.

Local Ministry and Partnerships

City of Thornton // North Metro Church is a major sponsor and partner with City of Thornton events. This year we supported the city’s Eggcessible Eggstravaganza event and invited over 500 families to our Easter services. We also sponsored the Summer Movies in the Park series, and are a sponsor for the upcoming Winterfest event.

Stellar Elementary // Our joint FunFest Trunk-or-Treat event reached more than 2,000 families and children in the north area. We served 550 hot dog meals and collected $273 in donations for Thornton families in need. There were 38 AMAZINGLY decorated trunks, trailers, and soccer goals, and we handed out more than 41,000 pieces of candy, with over 145 volunteers serving in this community event.

Community Programs // This Christmas season, we are partnering with Food for Hope. There are thousands of children in Adams County who receive little to nothing to eat when they are not at school. Food for Hope provides these children with nutritious food so that they can grow, learn, and thrive among their peers.

Facility Sharing // We continue to have our facility open to other local churches in our community as we desire to reach all nations here locally in the Thornton/Denver area. We currently host Iglesia Orchard, Hmong Church, and Grace Fellowship. We also open our facility to various other groups. More than 100 local women participate with Community Bible Study to study God’s Word together. Special Olympics groups, karate groups, community game nights, and soccer teams have all made use of our facility as we continue to be a hub for our community.

North Metro Community Groups // Our small groups connect and serve the community and find creative ways to continue discipleship. This summer, activity groups continued as people were able to find fun ways to spend time together doing varioius activities.

Online // We are continuing our online experience where we have seen people connect to North Metro Church. People attend online all over the country and even around the world.

Life Change // We had 26 people follow Christ in believer’s baptism and we are continuing to plan new avenues for connection, discipleship, and leadership development for 2024.

North Metro Students // We had 90 students and leaders at our fall discipleship retreat (EPIC), and 95 students and leaders at summer camp in Estes Park. Our vision for North Metro Students Ministry is to equip and empower students to passionately pursue a deep, authentic relationship with Jesus Christ while fostering a community of disciples who impact the world around them. We continue weekly discipleship for grades 6–12 on Sunday and Wednesday nights.

North Metro Kids // The goal of our kids ministry is to create a nurturing and engaging environment where children can grow in their faith, develop a personal relationship with Jesus, and become passionate disciples who impact their families, communities, and the world around them. We aim to equip and empower children to live out their faith through age-appropriate teaching on Sunday mornings. We also have camps, retreats, and special events throughout the year geared toward building discipleship and community.

International Mission Partners

Tanzania // The medical center we support had another very productive year with thousands of patients receiving the absolute best in compassionate, professional care. The staff counselor also prays and witnesses to patients every day, resulting in hundreds of people professing faith in Christ. The highlight of 2023 was an enhanced program of mobile medical clinics that were hosted in areas with no medical facilities or where a large percentage of the population cannot afford care.

Kenya // The ministry continues to be impactful on every level in one of the most challenging slums in the world. This year we saw a true miracle in Kibera as the government in January bulldozed down part of the school to supposedly build a new road. This apparent tragedy turned into an incredible victory as donors (including NMC) opened their hearts and pocketbooks to build a new facility that far exceeded anything we could have ever imagined.

La Paz, Mexico // In 2023 the student ministry sent a team of 11 students and adults to run a community outreach and do some service projects. If the Lord is willing, we plan to send students again in 2024. Rancho El Camino works alongside local churches and the local government in providing recreational therapy programs and community development initiatives for children, teens, and families through.

Operation Christmas Child // This was our first year of being a Central Drop-Off location. Thanks to all our volunteers, we were able to be the first of many steps for more than 10,000 shoeboxes from the north metro area that will go around the world with the gospel.

Thank You!

Thank you for your generous support in 2023. God has done a great work during this past year and we are excited to see all that God has for 2024.
