On Saturday, October 6 the Monterey family will scatter across the city to offer our work, play, and presence to our neighbors. As part of our ReNEW series, this is one way we demonstrate God’s Love in the world: to LOVE FIRST.
Choose from 20+ Love First projects, from park clean-up and light home repair, to creating Care Packages for teen moms and “stocking the kitchen” with former foster youth. There are projects for ALL ages!
Thank you for considering investing and inspiring the children of Monterey. Please take a look at the available quarters for the next year and find a place to help inspire, teach and help Kids come to know Christ better.

Special Missions Contribution Goal:
Monterey’s 7th Annual Missions Sunday is planned for April 15, 2018. This church continues to grow in its commitment to be the presence of Christ in the world. From a financial perspective, our annual operating budget reflects growth in that commitment, but your participation in this special contribution also allows us to honor commitments beyond our weekly contributions, and to expand our involvement in ministries in the Lubbock community and around the globe.
The goal of our first Special Missions Contribution in 2012 was $65,000 with the specific purpose of assisting Jim and Phyllis Beck in their transition to Kenya (including the purchase of a vehicle). The Missions Committee was overwhelmed with your response! This church gave over $120,000 that year, giving us the incredible opportunity to expand our outreach around the globe! And your generosity has continued each year! The average for these annual contributions is $118,000. Expansion of our Missions Ministry now includes ongoing commitments in several countries:
- Daniel Chengo & Stephen Thethe (Kenya)
- Landon & Courtney Shuman (Tanzania)
- Caleb & Jenny Beck, and the African Transformation Network (Rwanda)
- Jamie Wheeler’s ministry with Open Door (Lubbock)
- Olive Branch Ministries (Nicaragua and Peru)
- Mission Para Christo (Nicaragua)
- Medical clinics (Kenya)
Three years ago, we also began utilizing a percentage of this annual contribution for expansion of our Community Ministries right here in Lubbock! What a blessing!
In many respects, this year’s contribution will bring us full circle! We want to honor these ongoing commitments, and to continue expansion of our community ministries. I encourage you to prayerfully consider what you are able to give over and beyond your regular giving to the work at Monterey. Pray that God will bless this contribution as we continue to partner with a variety of mission efforts around the globe!

MEN & WOMEN IN THE BODY OF CHRIST
One of the blessings at Monterey is the opportunity for spiritual growth. In coordination with the elders, ministry staff, and Adult Education Committee, in the spring of 2018, we offered a five-week class, taught by Barry Stephens, on the topic “Men and Women in the Body of Christ.” The class included segments on how to read the Bible, how God has gifted believers, and the roles of men and women in the body of Christ. Those presentations were video recorded, and are available At the links below. If you have a problem accessing the videos, please contact Joey Drumright at firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Creation & The Fall”
“An Overview Of Scripture”
“Key New Testament Texts”

CREATE YOUR OWN PSALM CHALLENGE
This Summer during the Sunday worship series, we are challenging our church to write, draw or sing their own Psalms. Psalms express the full range of emotions and experiences. Some are praise and celebration. Some are sad and express pain and suffering. Others express both, and how God has rescued people from the
hardships and sadness they felt. Ultimately ALL Psalms are written to express to God how we feel and what we are going through and how we want Him to act or intercede. We want you to express the same through writing, drawing, painting, singing your own Psalms. Once you create your own, we encourage you submit them to us. By submitting these you are giving us permission to use them in our services or to post them on our “Psalms Wall”. All submissions are anonymous unless you indicate other wise.
1. There is NO wrong way to do this.
2. Psalms are written/drawn/sung TO or ABOUT God.
3. Write, draw, paint, sing your own Psalm.
4. Submit them to us below.
