What to DO in CO?

What to DO in CO? Colorado Springs is at the heart of some of the best things to do in Colorado. Centrally located, you can reach the area SDB churches fairly easily and quickly. For those coming in early, All Three Churches are anxious to meet you at our Sabbath morning services: Boulder – 6710 Arapahoe Boulder, CO 80303 (303) 541-9097 www.bouldersdb.org Thornton – 12156 Grant Circle Thornton, CO 80241 (303) 920-8782 www.nextstepchurch.org Colorado Springs – 1218 Prairie Road Colorado Springs, CO  80909 (719) 548-1098 www.springslife.org   Area Attractions include things like driving to the 14,114-foot Pikes Peak (www.pikes-peak.com), Cheyenne Mountain Zoo (www.cmzoo.org), Seven Falls (www.sevenfalls.com), Cave of the Winds (caveofthewinds.com) and Garden of the Gods (www.gardenofgods.com). For those who enjoy seeing nature from the back of a horse, I really recommend the Academy Stables: academyridingstables.com. This is an excellent way to see the south end of the Garden of the Gods! Some of these attractions require reservations so make sure you call and schedule early. Of course you might want to just wander and visit Manitou Springs and the craft shops there. The Broadmoor (www.broadmoor.com) is another excellent choice to visit, especially if golfing is on your mind.   The following Campgrounds are also recommended, but be aware that we need to fill our bed commitment to the University of CO-Colorado Springs, so seek that first. www.go-colorado.com/Colorado-Springs/Camping has a comprehensive listing of all area campgrounds. You can choose your site, but remember the campus is on the northwest side of the city of Colorado Springs. For computer-aided directions, the address of the campus is: 1424 Austin Bluffs Pkwy. Northwest campgrounds include Goldfield Campground, which is on the west side of Colorado Springs. It has weekly rates range from $175 to $220/week. The website is: www.goldfieldrvcampground.com. This campground is 8 miles from campus and would take between 15-30 minutes to drive back and forth from the campus, depending on traffic during the week. www.coloradocampground.com: Garden of the Gods Campground. Weekly rates range from $275 to $375 per week. This site is a little over 8 miles from the campus. Keep in mind that these campgrounds will fill up quickly. According to their websites, space...

Conference in Colorful Colorado

Conference in Colorful Colorado

Feb 22, 2013

Hello fellow SDBs and friends, We are SO excited to officially invite you to join us for the 2013 General Conference sessions in Colorful Colorado on July 28 – August 3. Colorado is an amazing place to enjoy God’s beautiful creation via a myriad of family-friendly vacation opportunities before and after Conference. The Conference location in Colorado Springs offers scenic views of Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountains, perfect low-humidity weather, close proximity to many appealing day-trip options, and access to the modern facilities at our host institution—the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. President Ralph Mackintosh has been hard at work putting together an unforgettable program to go along with his theme, “Forward in His Footsteps.” Our Host Committee, featuring the three Colorado churches—Boulder, Next Step (in Thornton) and Springs Life (in Colorado Springs)—as well as other individuals from around the country, has been unleashed to make sure your Conference experience goes as smoothly as possible. And we know that many have been preparing their hearts by Experiencing God. So we are thrilled to anticipate the powerful impact that God will have on Seventh Day Baptists through our Conference. We would love for you to be a part of it. More details will show up here in the Recorder, so check back each month. A Facebook page will feature helpful information and links to prepare for your visit. For specific questions, contact me at pastorsteve@sdbboulder.org or 303-541-9097. As our Conference Executive Director, Rob Appel, mentioned in a recent 7DB Blog post, we are encouraging everyone to stay on campus, if possible. The suite-style rooms are comfortable, up to date, and all in close proximity to each other and the dining hall. Please consider this as you make your plans. I believe it was at Conference back in 2009 that Rob first mentioned to me his dream of having us host Conference in Colorado again. It has been a long journey, but we are thrilled that God has been in control and helped us to work out all the details to make this dream a reality. Won’t you please pray about being a part of the exciting things that God is going to do...
