Sunday, May 8th

There are certain people that I ask to pray for me. Some of it is because I know that they are willing -- even eager to do so. Some of it is that they are trustworthy. And some of it is that I sense they have a unique closeness to God and might perhaps have his ear better than others (although I'm certainly on thin theological ice in that assumption). Well, what if you could get Jesus himself to pray for you? What if Jesus made you the focal point of his praying?

Let's take this out of the realm of mere possibility and look at John 17:20-26, which talks about how Jesus has already been praying for us -- for you. What in the world is he asking for on our behalf.

This is Mother's Day, so the men are responsible for preparing the Second Sunday Lunch. It should be exceptionally good. Bring your appetite this Sunday.

Whoever you are -- wherever you're from -- whatever your situation --welcome! MasterPiece Church meets at 10 AM, Sundays, 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?
