"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9
It's Wednesday night, December 6th, in Beaumont, Texas where the temperature is uncharacteristically low. It's 41° and drizzling, and the members here at Westgate Church of Christ are talking about how cold it is. Twenty of us are here helping rebuild homes that were devastated by Hurricane Harvey.
One of the elders at Westgate said they had a flood here in the 90's and someone marked the flood line on the building where he works. People living above that didn't purchase flood insurance, so when the waters from Hurricane Harvey rose 9'3" above that line, thousands lost all or most of everything they owned.
What do I see after three days of cutting and hanging sheet rock for people we've never met, who are not very much like us? Hope and gratitude.
Most of these people have been out of their homes for over three months wondering how in the world they'll ever rebuild. Now they have hope. And they can't stop saying thank you and blessing us. They have tears in their eyes and they run out of words. Yet in some way we feel more blessed than them - warm on a cold day.
Lord, help us be a blessing to those around us.
This new online ministry takes you to another website, "to make, foster and grow disciples of Christ". The website presently has a series of ten podcasts created by Bob Chambers entitled, "The Message and Mission of Jesus Christ".
The hope and prayer is that this website will serve as a resource for three groups of people:
1) Those who might be interested in hearing the Gospel of Jesus and learning more about how to obtain salvation (including a podcast devoted to the subject of baptism).
2) Those who might like a refresher course in the foundations of our faith.
3) Those who might like to prepare themselves to teach the Gospel to others.
Click anywhere on the slide above to visit the website, view the podcast titles and listen to the messages of interest. If you have any questions upon completion, please feel free to contact Bob Chambers through his website contact page or calling the church office at 505-256-7389.
A volunteer is needed to help organize the Preschool-Elementary age Children’s Books in the Library. Please contact Ann Weimer.
Children’s Worship today for children 2 years old through Kindergarten is in need of volunteers. Please contact Stephanie Doyle.
On Saturday, February 24th we are sponsoring a “Tea” for the Carenet Pregnancy Center of Albuquerque. We need volunteers to help with some food preparations, table and chair set up and take down. If you can help in this “Outreach” please contact Lorraine Lewis.
Netherwood Park Church of Christ is hosting the Greater Albuquerque Bible Institute, a satellite school of Sunset International Bible Institute. The aim of biblical education is to train men and women in the gifts and skills of communication so that they can effectively share their faith and knowledge through preaching, teaching and example. If you wish to audit the classes, there is no cost, however you will be required to buy a book. If you wish to take the class for credit, for a certificate of Advanced Biblical Studies or for a Bachelor’s degree, there is a tuition fee. Please contact Britton Pruitt (via the office) for information regarding registration, fees and the schedule for classes.
Starting Sunday January 28th, we will begin a new six week Bible class series titled Base Camp: The Basics of the Faith. This exciting new series is a topical study using scripture to help students develop a strong foundation in faith that is persevering and lasting. Topics will include the following:
Connecting with Jesus
Following Jesus Faithfully
Living as God’s Child
Maintaining a Balanced Faith
Please make every effort to attend the entire six week lesson series!

Fifteen of our teens participated in the Fall Youth Retreat up at Ponderosa Christian Camp this year. There was a lot of food (and an awesome kitchen staff), great weather (though it was pretty chilly that first night), lots of game-playing (what's with those weird card games?), and some fun (and frustrating!) activities. They definitely built some good relationships. Even the discussion sessions were popular ("This is kind of like school work, only more fun!").
The theme was "Jesus Changes Everything". In one session they discussed how it can be difficult sometimes to talk to others about Jesus and that being a good example without judgement is a great start. During the “New Habits” session they focused not so much on how to avoid bad habits but the good habits they have and how to keep and cultivate good habits. When asked how Jesus changes us one said, "We are loved, worthy, beautiful and not alone." Why do they think we, as Christians, no longer view others from a worldly point of view? "He put His point of view into us." Our kids can be pretty wise.
We're already looking forward to doing it again next year (and bringing a few more blankets)! Thanks to everyone who made it happen!
