Sunday, October 26th


Have you ever fallen asleep during a sermon?
In Acts 20:1-20 Eutychus falls asleep during the apostle Paul's on-and-on sermon, falls out of a third floor window, and dies. Fortunately, that's not the end of the story. What's this story really all about? And how does it relate to us? Let's talk about it.

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

Blessings!

Conversational English Club


Ronald McDonald dropped in to our meeting on Wednesday, September 24 -- much to our surprise and delight. Our "club" meets at 9 AM, each Wednesday, at a couple of tables in the Laveen McDonald's (51st Ave and Baseline). While most of the participants are Chinese, we welcome immigrants from anywhere -- anyone who wants directed English practice. We usually work on reading, vocabulary, and pronunciation skills. Often we'll cover topics which club members bring to the table.

3623 W Dobbins Rd


We've purchased the house and two acres at 3623 W Dobbins Rd, Laveen. We are applying for the permits to remodel house and use it as the new Laveen branch of our child care ministry. We're also launching a ministry for at-risk special needs children as a part of that. 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.

Sometimes we're crawling with kids -- and at other times there are just a few. Almost always Pastor Brad has a "Kids' Word" -- after which the children can choose to sit with their parents as the sermon continues or they can choose to continue on with the learning fun in Sunday School. We love kids!

"The Covenant"

We're excited about being a part of the Evangelical Covenant Church. Here is a brief word of introduction from our president Gary Walter.

Did he really say that?
