EQUAL EXCHANGE COFFEE AVAILABLE IN THE NARTHEX
Equal Exchange is a worker-owned co-operative. The organic, specialty Arabica coffees come from co-ops in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Because their farmer partners are paid Fair Trade prices above the market value for their crops, they are able to make investments in community projects, educational programs and technical trainings. These strong co-operative organizations also help keep rural communities healthy and strong, and keep local cultures vibrant. We currently have many different varieties of coffee available in the Narthex for $10 per bag. Read the bulletin here.

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.
