Welcome Pastor Laurie Lewis!
Our new Senior Pastor has arrived! Pastor Laurie is a graduate of Texas Christian University where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in radio, television, and film. She says that although always knowing she was called to ministry, she tried to deny the call when choosing a lifelong vocation, however eventually discovered that God never gives up. She entered Brite Divinity School where she received her Master of Divinity and entered full-time ministry. She says, “I have since accepted my call with great joy. I absolutely love what I do and I think that is reflected in the energy I bring to worship and congregational life.” Laurie has moved here from Denver, Colorado, where she was minister of South Broadway Christian Church. Prior to that call, she served as Senior Pastor of Monte Vista Christian Church, Albuquerque, NM for almost 11 years. Please welcome Pastor Laurie to our church and community! Read the bulletin here.
”STUFF THE BUS”
Summer is on the move and so are we. We’re getting ready to board the bus – the big, yellow school bus, that is. We have to plan ahead to be ready when the school doors open. We’re going to stuff the bus with school supplies for children of struggling families.
Times are stressful with the new national administration – lost jobs or low pay make it hard to put food on the table, pay medical bills, provide clothes for growing children, keep up with high utilities – need we say more?
We are a mighty congregation – you’ve proven that. We love children!
A box will be placed in the Narthex for supplies – or donations can be given on Sundays and we’ll buy them for you. Deal? Let’s put some fun in returning to school days.
Items needed: Backpacks; binders; pocket folders; wide-rule and college-rule spiral notebooks and loose leaf paper; blue, black and red ink pens; #2 pencils; washable markers; highlighters; pink erasers; expo markers; safety scissors and pointed scissors; 3” x 5” index cards; rulers; calculators; crayons and colored pencils; glue sticks and bottle glue; Kleenex and hand sanitizers.
