Sunday, August 3rd


From everything I've read in the Bible God isn't all that interested in getting people to be more Christian -- at least as we have come to define it. But he does seem pretty passionate about developing disciples of Jesus.
“Christianity without the living Christ is inevitably Christianity without discipleship, and Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ” ~ Deitrich Bonhoeffer
Are you a disciple? Are you engaged in disciplemaking?
Paul and Barnabas proclaimed the good news to the people in Derbe and made many disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch, where they strengthened the disciples and urged them to remain firm in the faith. ~ Acts 14:21-22 (CEB)
This Sunday we're going to be looking at the tenacity of Paul and Barnabas in Acts 20:21-28 as they jumped into disciplemaking with both feet. We'll also be celebrating the Lord's Supper.

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!

3623 W Dobbins Rd


We've purchased the house and 2 acres at 3623 W Dobbins Rd, Laveen. We moved our Sunday morning gatherings to 3623 on March 9th. Eventually, after we get the appropriate permits, we will remodel the building to house the new Laveen branch of our child care ministry. We're also launching a ministry for at-risk special needs children.

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 word of introduction from our president Gary Walter.

Did he really say that?

Transcriptions and videos of many of Pastor Brad Boydston's recent sermons and talks can be found on his Fresh Fish Food blog.
