"Life is unfair, people are terribly broken, and the world is deeply confusing.  Yes, struggle is certain; but every piece is a movement in the symphony.  And Christ is the great Conductor."

Ministry at the Market

"Do I have to sing? Do I have to dance? What should I do? I’m not sure if I’m ready to be a witness for Christ yet!" On her first day serving at the Cedar Crest Farmer's Market for MCC, Ellen was nervous. Click here to see how she overcame that and how God used her time volunteering at the market to transform her heart and prayer-life.

What's Happening at MCC
The mobile food pantry at A. Montoya Elementary is this Thursday, May 25th from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Join Shine volunteers as they reach out to our community and share God's love with people who may otherwise feel forgotten! Contact Ashley Procter if you can volunteer!

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.
