God Pursues

Every year Vacation Bible School offers us, as volunteers and church members, the opportunity to change lives! VBS is so much more than just fun music, creative crafts, Bible stories and snack time. While all of this is good stuff, God reaches through all these things and PURSUES the hearts of these children! A few of us have been lucky enough to see that happen. Click here to see how Ashley Proctor had the chance to see God pursue the heart of one girl during VBS last year!

Graduation is almost here, and we want to help our graduating Senior’s celebrate this milestone. Youth Ministry is planning a Graduation Recognition Sunday for June 4th and we need parent’s help! We are asking parents to send in up to four photos of their graduating senior and a favorite verse by June 2nd for a graduation video! Please send your pictures and verses to Joy or message her at 505-503-9489 with any questions!

Do you have a couple over-stuffed book shelves at home? If so, please consider sending some kids at A. Montoya home for the summer with a few of your once-loved books!  There is a cart marked "Free Books" that sits just inside the doors of the school.  Let's fill it up between now and May 25! Stop by A. Montoya, anytime between 7:45am and 2:30pm,  Monday through Friday. Contact Ashley Procter with questions or if you need directions to the school!

Farmer's Market Team Members needed! The Cedar Crest Farmer’s Market is a seasonal market supporting roughly 22 local farmers and small growers in the East Mountains. The market is held in the MCC parking lot and runs from June 7th through October.  We are looking for four to five volunteers willing to show up from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. Wednesday afternoons during the season to serve as representatives of the church. Ideally, we need members who enjoy meeting people, can show a real interest in what the vendors are offering for sale, and who want to build personal relationships while sharing the gospel. Contact Tom O'Brien for more information about this opportunity.

Did you miss out on having your picture taken for the Church Photo Directory?  Jasmine will be set up to take pictures between services on Sunday, May 28th and Sunday, June 4th

Women’s Inductive Bible Study begins the book of Jude on Monday, June 4th at 10 a.m. Jude was going to write about salvation, but found that there was something more urgent that had to be addressed---doctrinal error. Why does it matter so much?  Please join us and dive into the rich truth of Scripture and see!  Please sign-up so we can know how many books to make. $9 for hole-punch copy, $10 for bound. Questions? Please contact Elizabeth.

Prayer for Outreach Ministries

Please pray for India National Inland Ministries.
Of India's 1.3 billion people, 740 million have never heard the name of Jesus.
India National Inland Mission's purpose is to make His
name known as Savior and Lord.
 


Please pray that God would raise up a new generation of native gospel proclaimer's to be trained and sent out.
  • Please pray for Bethesda Children's Home as they try to fill the void left by non-national Christian organizations that have been forced out of India.
  • Please pray for INIM's outreach to the governments of India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Myanmar.
  • Please pray for strength and wisdom for Paul and Annie Pillai, as they continue to lead in the cause of Christ in India and southeast Asia.
