Worldwide missionaries love to share the message of Jesus Christ in Song. Pictured here are Mormon missionaries performing at St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh Scotland

On February 11th from  7 pm to 8:30 pm Mormon missionaries in the Denver area will present a special musical presentation called “Why I Believe.”

The presentation will feature musical performances from sister and elder missionaries serving in the local area as well as messages which will be shared by recent converts to the Mormon church in Colorado.

The Musical Performance or “fireside” is open to everyone in the community, both members of the faith and those who are not currently of the Mormon faith.

“It promises to be an experience that will build one’s faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior and only way back to the father,” says Jacob Paulsen of the Denver North Public Affairs Council. “Come worship the Redeemer through song and testimony!”

No registration or tickets are required to attend. The presentation will be held at a Mormon meetinghouse located in Denver at 2710 S Monaco Pkwy.

The Columbine Courier has highlighted a service project involving hundreds of volunteers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Columbine congregations along with the United Alliance and Lockheed Martin in support of Operation Santa Claus.

Operation Santa Claus is a nonprofit organization for which employees, their families and retirees volunteer to provide gifts and food to families in the Denver area. There were more than 400 volunteers who bought and wrapped presents, collected groceries and delivered them to 294 families that included 890 children.

Operation Santa Claus receives referrals of needy families from about a dozen nonprofits, including Jewish Family Services and the Salvation Army.

“They know the families that come to them for help,” Cowley said. “We ask for families who have kids.”

The Home Front Cares Inc., an organization that assists military families and those of veterans, also provided names of families for this year’s event. Volunteers meet at a local LDS meetinghouse to work like elves assembling and packaging the gifts.
