This month, Pastor Neal is preaching a sermon series about camels in the Bible (which were a valued resource in the ancient world) and how we can manage our own resources for the benefit of our communities and those we love.  Join us on Sundays at 9am (outdoors) and 11am (sanctuary & online). 

Outdoor childcare (on the playground) is now available at the church for both worship services.  If you are participating online, our 11am service will be broadcast on our church website, or you can click the green button below on Sunday morning to join via Facebook live:

Due to safety concerns, our annual "Hanging of the Greens" -- where we decorate our church for the Advent and Christmas season -- will take place throughout November.  We are encouraging people to come by the church one person (or family) at a time during church office hours to volunteer and help us put out decorations.  Office hours are Monday through Thursday 8am - 5pm.  If you are unable to come during office hours, please call Patty in the church office at 915-533-7551 to schedule a time that works for you.
Last Sunday's worship service and Pastor Neal's remembrance of our "departed saints" are available to watch by clicking on the image above.  You can also find recent sermons and worship videos on our church YouTube Channel as well as our Facebook page
A special THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered or decorated "tree trunks," for our recent Enchanted Forest event.  Along with our sister church, New Wine Fellowship, we were able to distribute 400 bags of individually wrapped candy to children in our community as they paraded through our "forest" in their costumes and cars.  More importantly, we were able to provide a fun, well-organized alternative to trick-or-treating, and share a lot of joy, hope, and love.  
Gratitude is expressed for the life of May Fiske (10/31/20) and sympathy to her daughter, Judy Stephens and family. May was our most senior church member at 103 years old, and will be greatly missed.  The sanctuary flowers this Sunday are in honor and memory of her.  Information on a memorial service will be announced at a later date.
The Apostle Paul at prayer:  "For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name.  I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love."  Ephesians 3:14-17.  Prayer requests for October —Two and continuing prayers. Our pastor, staff and members stand ready to pray for your joys and concerns. If you would like pastoral prayer, please call the church office and leave a message. To be added to our member-led prayer chain, contact the church office at 915-533-7551.
Wishing You A
