Opportunity to Serve

We've got a pretty big need just around the corner. Our trailer team will be losing 2 of the 3 pull and set up folks after December.

We need to have those folks replaced in order to continue to have equipment for Sunday morning service. 

Please see Terry Kim about this opportunity !

We will train on the how-tos of all of it.

Bits and Bytes
Community Focus!

It's time for the 3rd Annual Fall Festival at Casa Blanca Community School.

Our much-anticipated event will take place on October 31st at the school.

We are planning approximately 10 carnival-style games for the kids as well as a visit from First Tee who will be there with their interactive golfing fun. We'll wrap up the afternoon of fun with a nice cold snow cone. 

Casa Blanca Community School is a single-school district that serves about 250 students in grades K-4. 

The district is located in Bapchule, on the Gila River Indian Reservation. 

In the coming weeks, we'll be asking for volunteers and other support. Keep an eye out for those opportunities. These kids are a blast to be around and we have as much fun as they do! If you have any questions or would like to help, please see Carol Steinke or Deb Richmond.
Did You Know?

The United Methodist Church recognizes  two sacraments, baptism and communion.

These two acts have a special place in the church because Jesus commanded them and participated in them.

Through the years, Christians have used other sacramental acts to draw closer to God.  While we do not recognize these other acts as sacraments, we participate in many of them in some way.
