In the News Bible Study

Each week there are many events in the news, and we read it or watch it and then go on with the rest of our day. Do you ever ask, “What does the Bible teach about this event?” or, “As a follower of Jesus, how do I respond to this?” I want to invite you to join me in an on-going study of the Bible and current events around the world. We’ll be meeting on Thursdays at 10:30 am each…

Back to School 2020

Back to School Supplies ARE Needed for EARLY August Schools in some form or another will start in early August and we support the El Mirage School System.  Your Mission and Outreach Committee watched for bargains… so last year AFTER the kids went back to school and the “Backpacks” were on sale, we purchased nearly 70 of them to be filled.

Habitat for Humanity

Like every other organization, Habitat for Humanity has been impacted by the Corona virus.  Virtually all of Habitat’s central Arizona building projects have been suspended since March.  The only exception was the completion of one home, as it was in its final stages when the recommendations to quarantine were just beginning.  But the organization stands ready to return to providing housing options for struggling families once the critical period of infections has passed.  In the interim, Habitat is doing whatever…

Sunday, Sundae, Serve

March 15 Some of our friends who are not into church think that what we do is sing a droning song or two and hear a boring sermon. Hopefully our singing and sermons are neither! Who do you know who doesn’t have a church home? Perhaps it’s that new fellow who just moved here from Iowa or maybe the nice couple from Michigan who just bought the condo down the way. It might be that friendly clerk at the store…

Heidi Hernandez Concert 8-8-19

Lakeview Concert Series Heidi Hernandez Those of you who came to the second TNT during the month of August were treated to a superb concert with Heidi Hernandez, after an excellent dinner.  Dinner was delicious, of course, thanks to Chef Linda and her wonderful kitchen staff.  The concert opened with the familiar ‘Tea for Two’ as a tribute to Heidi’s loving grandfather, then continued with a chronology of her favorite compositions; each more special than the last.  The highlight of…
