Missions Sunday 2018

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!

Specialty Class: Men & Women in the Body of Christ


One of the blessings at Monterey is the opportunity for spiritual growth and relationships through our Adult Bible Classes.  We encourage your participation in Bible Classes on both Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.  In coordination with the elders, ministry staff, and Adult Education Committee, we hope to offer a special class that will focus on specific topics of interest at least once a year.  The first of these will be a five-week class, taught by Barry Stephens, on the topic “Men and Women in the Body of Christ” that will be offered three times in the spring.  The class will include segments on how to read the Bible, how God has gifted believers, and the roles of men and women in the body of Christ.  This five-week class will be offered twice on Sunday mornings – the first offering will begin on Sunday, March 4, and the second offering will begin on Sunday, April 22.  Those two classes will be limited to 100 people.  You may sign up below or by calling the church office.  The class will also be offered on a Wednesday night later in the spring.
