Sunday, August 20th

Religious people tend to worry about rituals and rules. Jesus, on the other hand, stresses the importance of what's in the heart. And he says that the words we use are a clear indicator of what's in the heart. WORDS REVEAL! This Sunday we'll be looking at Matthew 15:10-28 -- which is so relevant in this era of volatile rhetoric.

"What comes out of the mouth gets its start in the heart.
It’s from the heart that we vomit up evil arguments,
murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts,
lies, and cussing. That’s what pollutes.
Eating or not eating certain foods,
washing or not washing your hands
—that’s neither here nor there."

~ Matthew 15:17-20 (MSG)

Whoever you are -- wherever you're from -- whatever your situation -- welcome! MasterPiece Church meets at 10 AM in the ranch house at 3623 W Dobbins Rd, Laveen.

3623 W Dobbins Rd

In February of 2014 we purchased the house and two acres at 3623 W Dobbins Rd, Laveen. In April of 2016 we received a Special Use Permit from Maricopa County to use the site as a church and child care center. We are currently applying for the permits to remodel the house. And eventually it will become the Laveen branch of our child care ministry -- Covenant Child Care Center. We're also launching a ministry for at-risk special needs children as a part of our work in Laveen.

On weekends and during the evenings, when the child care center isn't using the building, several of the MasterPiece Church congregations will meet there. Currently the Laveen gathering of MasterPiece Church is at 10 AM, Sundays, in the house.

There are two reasons why 3623 grabbed our attention. First, it is on an arterial road in Laveen. We want to be easy to find. And secondly, it is an agricultural area. We anticipate using gardening and the care of small farm animals as important child development tools.

These are exciting days for us and we're grateful to God for the opportunities to serve him and our neighbors -- especially those whose living on the margins.

"The Covenant"

We're excited about being a part of the Evangelical Covenant Church. Here is a brief introduction.

Did he really say that?
