Household Swap
Are you tired the clutter in your home? Are you tired of seeing things around that you don't need? Are you ready to start sorting through stuff so your kids and grandkids don't have to deal with it later? 

Bring it to the swap! We accept anything: clothes, kitchen items, tools, and outdoor items. If it is at your house, we accept it!

My vision is to do this twice a year and try to get other churches and families involved. It's an outreach for the Christian community as well as the unchurched community. I would like to see other churches involved and for families to invite their friends and acquaintances. 

Drop off items is Friday, December 9th from 3:00pm-7:00pm at First EFC.

Come back Saturday morning from 9:00am-12:00pm and get anything that you need for free! 

We will open it up to the community or people that didn't have anything to donate at 1:00pm and it will go until 3:00pm.

The items that are left will be donated to a thrift store. 

Volunteers are needed! Please email or text Tattney Flores (575-751-1089, if you have time to come help volunteer! Volunteers get to "shop" first!

Administrative Assistant Update
Dear Church Family,

We wanted to let you know that Naomi Yee will be resigning from her position as Administrative Assistant at the end of December 2022. We so appreciate her dedication and service to our church since August 2019 in this way. She has always done tasks willingly and with a joyful spirit while serving. Naomi will continue to serve our church in the various ways she always has in Awana, digging deeper and such. We also appreciate that she will take on the Free and Clear as a volunteer in the new year. Please be sure to thank her for serving as an administrative assistant. 
As a note, we are not currently planning to replace the position of Administrative Assistant in 2023 and the staff and volunteers will pick up the work they do. 

Pastor Mike
On behalf of the Elders
