Today I was humbled to accept the traveling "Stuff the Bus" Trophy on behalf of the whole church. For the 2nd year in a row the Members of First Christian will bring home the top honors for providing needed school supplies to children in Carlsbad and South Eddy County. Thanks also to the United Way for being such an amazing community service agency with whom we may partner for the benefit of God's children.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Municipal Judge Richard Martinez. He served this community faithfully for many years as a police officer and commander with the APD and as a judge. Please keep the Martinez family in your thoughts and prayers as they process their loss and in the days ahead.

On Sunday, August 9 at 2:00 PM The First Christian Church will be screening a sermon preached last month by the Rev. Dr. William Barber. Powerfully preaching in the legacy of Martin Luther King, this courageous sermon is a prophetic call to action for matters of racism and economic inequality in our modern world that can inspire individuals and Christians to answer our call to seek justice in our world. Discussion will follow. There is no cost for this event. http://www.fcccarlsbad.org/events-wedge-details/430511/1439146800

Sunday, August 9th, 2:00 PM at First Christian Church, come and watch a resounding and powerful Video of The Rev. Barber preaching at the 2015 General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The video of his sermon will be followed by discussion and prayer with the theme of answering God's call to do more than sit in our churches and pray for God to act or hope that we don't have to get involved. Now is the time for action. We welcome leaders and members from all Christian traditions in Carlsbad to this vital time of Holy Spirit transformation for our Christian Witness that we may all hear God's prophetic call and take the vision back to our individual congregations with power and confidence!
