  • Lloyd Seagraves Appears on Local TV

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)- A Korean War Veteran paid a special visit to an Albuquerque elementary school to thank a second grader for a letter the boy wrote to him.

    “The ocean was angry and turbulent,” said Lloyd Seagraves with a chuckle as he spoke to students at Apache Elementary School on Friday.

    Each line in his face tells a story, a story of where he’s been and what he’s seen.

    “I tell people that ship somersaulted all the way to Japan,” said Seagraves as he spoke to the kids about his journey to Korea.

    Lloyd Seagraves served in the Army during the war and this year, he embarked on the Honor Flight to Washington D.C.

    “We were treated like we were the only people in the world,” he said.

    As Seagraves remembers all the moments of the Honor Flight, he said the most special part of the trip was when he received an envelope full of letters from people across the country.

    On of those letters was a hand-written on ‘Cat in the Hat’ paper by Xavier Nieto, a second grader at Apache Elementary School. The letter read, “Dear soldier, thank you for saving lives, and my life. I hope you are safe. Thank you for saving the U.S.”

    “It’s the first one Xavier ever tried to write to somebody, and I got it,” said Seagraves.

    The veteran was touched by the words of the young American.

    “He was asked to write this letter, he didn’t know who it was… but he said all the right things,” he said.

    Seagraves said he had to meet Xavier. And on Friday they met for the first time, embracing in a hug.

    “It touched both of them in a special way, for the elderly and the young to get together,” said Xavier’s mom, Margaret Nieto.

    As a token of his appreciation, Seagraves gave Xavier his American flag, given to him during the honor flight.

    “Thank you for sending me this letter,” said the veteran.

  • Veteran’s Day Fundraiser – Hope for Our Heroes

    “God’s Word brings my soldiers comfort, security and peace. Thank you for the Military BibleSticks.” — Army  Chaplain

    Saturday, November 11th is Veterans Day and we once again have an opportunity to express our appreciation to our service members and veterans by providing them with a Military BibleStick. This small digital audio player includes the complete Audio New Testament along with 65 minutes of selected Psalms. The BibleSticks are distributed to military chaplains who then share them with our troops and veterans from all branches of service. So far, Faith Comes by Hearing has distributed over 845,000 BibleSticks and they get 3,000 requests a week for additional units.

    Each BibleStick costs $25 to sponsor and our goal is to provide at least 100 BibleSticks. If you would like to help with any amount, please write “BibleStick” on the memo line of your check, made payable to Netherwood Park, and drop it in the collection plate or give it to any of the office staff. You can also easily donate a Biblestick to a veteran by clicking on this secure link: Military BibleStick donation. You'll either choose "Create An Account" or, below that, "Give Without an Account". If you create an account your information will be stored for future use. (We'll say more about that in a couple of weeks.) It's pretty straightforward. If you have problems or questions, please contact Zane at zane@netherwoodpark.com .

    Thanks for helping share God’s Word with our troops!

  • The Truth Transforms Website

    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.

Youth News

  • Fall Youth Retreat Report

    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!
