“Marriage Made in God’s Image” is a 3-day marriage enrichment retreat designed to follow only one agenda, and that is the will and purpose of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Through this 3-day enrichment ministry, you and your spouse will discover and re-discover things about yourself and each other you never realized. Your spiritual growth during this time will be totally dependent on you. You may be asking yourself “What will I get out of this weekend?” or “What can I expect from this weekend?”, the answer in both cases is, “I don’t know!” What you take from this ministry is what you give to this ministry. What walls will you allow to be broken down? What obstacles are you willing to moved out of the way? How far are you willing to go?
(Thursday – Sunday)

As Christ-followers we believe prayer feeds, nourishes, and develops both our souls and our city. True prayer is not a burden, but a Feast. For 12 hours on Saturday, April 13th, our Worship Center will become a dedicated House of Prayer. The room will include a variety of stations and prayer practices (like Healing, Forgiveness, Journaling, and others) to help guide you into a self-paced encounter with God.
In preparation for our time spent in prayer, we encourage everyone to join us in fasting during this 12-hour period. Please schedule 30-60 minutes in your weekend to join The Feast!

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:
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!
For questions about the event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the church office at 806-795-5201.
