Volunteers Needed
The Awana team greatly appreciates the volunteers who set up chairs last semester!  We need small groups of volunteers to fill eleven weeks for the spring semester now.  If you would like to volunteer a group or family to set up chairs one week, please contact Courtney Klima at 575-556-4393. We recommend groups of 3-4 people who can lift chairs with at least one person who is comfortable pushing the dolly with the stacks of chairs.
Dear Church Family,

If you receive a solicitation for money during or after service please politely refuse and direct solicitors to the members of the response team who will then work to understand the needs and minister to individuals who need help. We are happy to provide compassionate care and we have a plan in place that will help meet needs and provide care in a safe and orderly manner.

Thank you,

Pastor Jeremiah
