Serving and Helping

Movement 5280


A Downtown Teen & Young Adult Center:

Movement 5280 Teen and Community Center is a ministry of Denver First Church. Our mission is: to develop a movement of faith, hope and love within Denver’s youth and underprivileged by engaging them with opportunities for worship, vocational training, recreation, and relational support.

Movement 5280 has moved from the current location, as the building we were renting was sold. We are in transition for the next two months. We will continue to meet in various locations. We will have Lost and Found Service at the recreation center at Dekker Park on Sundays.
