God’s Grace Community Church (GGCC) had the joy of once again helping to host the Annual Open Door Youth Gang Alternatives Christmas Party for inner city kids on December 19.
More than 200 families from Five Points in Denver attended the event. Festivities included cookie and card decorating, stuffing stockings, and of course a visit from Santa. More than 400 bags of toys were distributed, dona ted by Toys for Tots. It was an afternoon that touched the hearts of everyone who attended.
