Hi <<First Name>>,

You're invited to gather and stand with all those who have lost loved ones to violence in our city on Friday June 10th, 6pm. 

We will be standing with Ana Hernandez-Thallas to remember loved ones lost and to celebrate the life of her daughter Isabella Joy Thallas, a ballpark murder victim, whose life was tragically taken by gun violence on June 10th, 2020. 

We will gather in peace and unity at Bella Joy Gardens, a park generously granted and renovated by the City of Denver for those affected by gun violence.

I believe we’re in a unique moment to be salt and light in spaces and places of pain in our city; and if we show up as the Church in these places to be a presence of peace, then we could reveal the Lord’s grace, salvation, and healing to the world.

At this small park in the heart of Denver, we will celebrate LIFE with food, fun, and friendship. Then move into a time of remembrance, prayer, and a candlelight vigil to raise our light toward all who have suffered and mourned, spreading healing and hope of Jesus with our lives in the city. 


6:00 - 7:30
- Food Trucks & Friendship
- Live Music with the Confluence Band

7:30 - 8:30
- Memorial Service

8:30 - 9:00
- Candlelight Vigil under the stars in remembrance of Isabella and all victims of violence

In partnership with Colorado Community Church, CITC-BA, & Confluence Ministries 

Sponsored by: Denver Parks & Rec, AFC Wings & Fish
