Sunday, March 8th

Paul preached what was perhaps the greatest sermon in his career. But he didn't get the response he as looking for -- not at all. How do we react when people choose to respond to our message with less than enthusiasm? Let's talk about it this Sunday as we look together at Acts 26:9-32.

We'll also be serving our free Second Sunday Special lunch after worship. Last month it was Chinese, and this month we're going Italian. Lasagna is on the menu. Bring your appetite.

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

New location for Conversational English Club

We're now meeting at 9 AM and 4 PM, Wednesdays, in a booth at the Carl's, Jr restaurant, 5040 W Baseline Rd in Laveen. Note the new quieter location -- and the new afternoon session.

It's a pretty informal gathering of immigrants who want to spend an hour each week developing their English skills by talking and reading. Some are using this opportunity to supplement instruction they're receiving in classroom settings but others are using this approach as their primary means of English instruction. Either way -- you are welcome to join us. It's free. We don't require any kind of commitment and people come and go over time. Some join us when they need help solving a problem or in figuring out a letter from the government. If you want to try it out -- just show up.

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.

And we like to laugh...

even if it is kinda' Corny.

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 introduction.
