Adventurer Youth Ministry
CURRENTLY SUSPENDED, See LAKEWOOD FELLOWSHIP's Adventurer Program

The Adventurer Club is a Seventh-day Adventist Church-sponsored ministry open to all families of children in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and grades 1-4 who agree to keep the Adventurer Pledge and Law.

The Adventurer program is designed to support parents in assisting children with the challenging task of developing fully as followers of Christ in today’s world.

The Adventurer curriculum is designed to accomplish the following:
  • Children will, at their own level, commit their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ.
  • Children will gain a positive attitude toward the benefits, joys, and responsibilities of living a Christian life.
  • Children will acquire the habits, skills and knowledge needed to live for Jesus today.
  • Parents and other primary care-givers will become more confident and effective as co-laborers with Christ for their children.

The objectives of the Adventurer Club are to provide fun and creative ways for children to:

  • Develop a Christ-like character.
  • Experience the joy and satisfaction of doing things well.
  • Express their love for Jesus in a natural way.
  • Learn good sportsmanship and strengthen their ability to get along with others.
  • Discover their God-given abilities and to know how to use them to benefit self and serve others.
  • Improve their understanding of what makes families strong.

Golden's Adventurer Club is currently suspended.

The Adventist CHIP Association is a fellowship of Seventh-day Adventist Churches around North America who, along with other local sponsors, are conducting this unique video-based program in their communities.

The association's Mission is to provide scientifically sound community health education programs in the local community that will bring healing to the whole person—body, mind, and soul while creating lasting friendships and stimulating an interest in God's original design for maximum health and well-being.

A blood test will be administered at the beginning and the end of the program to verify actual changes in your health.

Fellowship Meal
Every week, after the church service, we have a Fellowship Meal in our gymnasium (or upstairs in the church during IHN).  The meal is open to all attending visitors and members.  Come join our fellowship so we can get to know each other a little better!

Family Promise (Formerly known as Interfaith Hospitality Network or IHN)
The Family Promise of Denver is a shelter and self-sufficiency program for homeless families.  It's mission is to enable an interfaith and community response to families who become homeless by providing shelter, meals, comprehensive assistance and encouragement toward self-reliance in an atmosphere of warmth and hospitality.

In partnership with Family Promise of Greater Denver, congregations provide home-like accommodations, meals and hospitality for up to five families for a one-week period up to four times a year.  Families may spend the day at Family Promise’s day site, and each evening they are transported to the host congregation.  Each congregation hosts the families from 5:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. during their host week.

The Golden Seventh-day Adventist church first became involved in the IHN/Family Promise program in 2002 in conjunction with the startup of the Jefferson County rotation.  Kristi Floyd was instrumental in generating interest among the church membership.  Families were housed in the church gymnasium for one week.

Later, the Faith Lutheran church joined the program using the Golden gymnasium for their week also.  Both weeks (Golden Seventh-day Adventist's and Faith Lutheran's) are managed by volunteers from the respective churches and others who are interested in helping.  Betty Pelley is the coordinator for the Golden SDA church.

Many improvements to the gym have been made in order to make the families more comfortable, including booths for semi-private rooms, the addition of a shower for the guests, an apartment for the overnight hosts and improvements to the kitchen facilities.  These improvements have been possible through contributions by both congregations and the Golden Family of Churches.

The well-designed program, including careful screening of each family, ensures that volunteers and financial contributors know that they are helping people, who are truly in need, get back on their feet.

Health Study
Every Tuesday, before our Prayer Meeting, we have a half-hour Health Study.  If you desire to improve your health, please join us at 6:30 pm on Tuesday.  While your at it, plan on staying for our Prayer Meeting at 7:00 pm.

Social Activities
At various times the church has social activities designed to bring members and visitors together, outside of regular spiritual meetings, to help us get to know each other better.  Some of our regular socials that have become annual events include our summer picnic, fall talent show and winter gym nights.
