NEW! -- Family Zone -- an Alternative to Nursery
Calling all families who are missing Church Nursery! Until we are able to offer a nursery program for our littlest church family members, why not check out our Family Zone! We have created a comfortable place for parents and their young children in the cafe corner. Kids can play while parents watch and listen to the service through the windows in the lobby. Please bring your own books and toys. Drinking and snacking are strongly discouraged.
CHILDREN'S MINISTRY UPDATES
We are running a slightly shorter children's program for Jk-Gr 5 during the preaching portion of our service.
We are seeking to take necessary precautions during the program including doing it outside (weather permitting), keeping socially distanced, providing masks and hand sanitizer and making sure necessary surfaces are cleaned.
Since we will be outside, we ask if families could bring blankets or towels for the kids to sit on while they are outside if they so desire.
If you are unable to attend, we will continue to provide the lesson video and activity sheets on our website, as well as our Family Worship teaching through our live service. (See below).
At this time, we are still unable to supply regular nursery services but hope to safely do so in the future.

FAMILY WORSHIP — FROM THE NEW CITY CATECHISM
Question 4: How and why did God create us?
Answer: God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him. And it is right that we who were created by God should live to his glory.
Children's Answer: God created us male and female in his own image to glorify him.
So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.

Ken and Cathy Yinger -- Spain
Ken and Cathy write in their latest newsletter that there are days when it's been really, really hard. Covid 19 numbers are beginning to rise again with tourists coming into Spain, it has been intolerably hot, they are missing their children and grandchildren, and they are concerned about both their mothers. They write: "However, God is always so good, so creative in His ways to remind us that He is sovereign. He is in control. He is the one who called us, He is the one who will work in and through and around us in His good time. The only thing He asks of us is obedience."
"More than anything, we ask you to pray that we will rest in Him, expect Him to open doors that only He can, and have eyes to see and ears to hear. Pray for wisdom for government leaders as they make decisions about handling the pandemic. Pray for our Fellowship International colleagues, and for our World Horizons partners here in Extremadura. Pray for the pastors and leaders of the evangelical churches across Extremadura, that they will seek God’s plan for moving forward. He is doing new things!"
