Card Ministry

Donations of all occasion cards come in from the Littleton to Longmont, ranging from 2 to 5 to multiple thereof. These individual donations together become a gift of 45,000 cards distributed to the inmates of Denver Women’s Correctional Facility each year.  

Under the supervision of Pastor Terry, women of New Beginnings meet weekly to sort, stamp, and bundle cards to ready them for distribution. 3 times per year, the women are honored to distribute 15,000 cards to the general population of the prison. The women who receive cards then have the means to send them to friends and loved ones, including their children.

If you are interested in donating new cards for this ministry, please email

"There is a boy here who has 5 barley loaves and two fish. But what are they among so many people. Now there was a great deal of grass in the place; so they sat down, about 5,000 in all. Then Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated.  When they were satisfied, they gathered up the fragments left over. From the fragments from the 5 barley loaves left by those who had eaten, they filled 12 baskets."
