Shine in the love of God's grace, every day.
Via de Cristo is a Christian movement to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people and bring them to a new awareness of living in God's grace, intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders.The Via de Cristo experience begins with a 72-hour short course in Christianity, comprised of fifteen talks by lay people and clergy on the themes of God's grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means to be the church. The course is wrapped in prayer and meditation, special times of worship, and daily celebration of Holy Communion. The "Via de Cristo Community," made up of those who have already attended a VdC weekend, support the 72-hour experience with a prayer vigil, by preparing and serving meals, and other acts of love and self-giving. Via de Cristo is non-denominational and welcomes any and all Baptized Christians to attend, and uses Lutheran theology as its faith cornerstone. The Colorado Chapter of Via de Cristo currently hosts and holds several weekends a year in Colorado. If you've been invited to a weekend, you will find more information about VdC at this site.To donate to Colorado VdC please click this link for Simply Giving
