Aug 11, 2013 – Denver First Church of the Nazarene
Denver First Church of the Nazarene is located at 3800 E. Hampden Ave in Englewood Colorado, 80113 one block west of Colorado Blvd. The church’s mission is to LOVE God with our whole heart and life, to GROW in personal faith and understanding of God’s Word, then GO to serve in Christ’s name at home, work and our community.
There are two opportunities for worship on Sunday mornings:
- 9 am – Music is contemporary & led by a guitar driven band. The atmosphere for this service is casual. The Lead Pastor delivers a relevant Bible-based message.
- 10:30 am – This service blends music preferences with a variety of praise choruses, hymns, and special music from the Celebration Choir and Orchestra. The Lead Pastor delivers the same Bible-based message that he shared during the earlier service. The atmosphere for this service is casual or semi-formal (with the emphasis on the comfort of the person attending.)
There is Youth & Children’s programming provided at the same times as the services. A nursery is available for babies through toddlers.

Aug 9, 2013 – Coors Field
Coors Field (the home of the Colorado Rockies Ball Club) is located at 20th & Blake Streets in Denver’s “lower downtown” (or “LoDo”). The first official game held at Coors Field was played on April 26, 1995 (Colorado 11, New York Mets 9). Coors Field covers 76 acres of prime downtown real estate.
Getting to Coors Field is pretty easy…You can drive & park in one of the nearby lots paying anywhere from $7 on game day (Arapahoe Lot) to $13 on game day (Lot B). If you plan ahead you can purchase a ticket for Lot B for $12 at the Coors Field Ticket Office, Colorado Rockies Dugout Store, by phone at 303-ROCKIES (762-5437) or online at http://www.Rockies.com when purchasing tickets. There are also some offsite parking lots available along the 16th Street Mall or the Broadway/Lincoln Center. If you park in one of these you can take a shuttle to the ball park.
Public Transportation (RTD) is another option for getting to Coors Field. Use RockiesRide, Light Rail, the Broadway Shuttle or other regional or local routes. Call (303) 299-6000, or visit http://www.rtd-denver.com. Coors Field is located two blocks from Union Station.
Coors Field has 63 luxury suites and 4,526 club seats. The center field bleacher section is called “The Rockpile”. Rockpile seating area consists of 2300 bleacher seats added after the construction of the stadium as a way to increase capacity for popular games. Because these seats are the furthest in the stadium from home plate, they are the least expensive tickets available. Originally seats in the Rockpile cost $1 each….the current price is $4 each.
