        Streaming

        Changes are coming to our streaming. In July, we will begging a new format of streaming. What does that mean for you? Hopefully you find a more pleasant experience with multiple camera views and worship screen directly in the stream feed. As we progress, we will then also work with making the audio better as well. WE NEED YOUR HELP. Do you have an old Smart Phone? Contact Pastor Doug. We may be able to use this for our streaming. Are you getting a new Smart Phone, contact Pastor Doug to see if we can use the old one. We also still could use some direct additional giving to upgrade the streaming. We were able to secure a much lower cost system, but it still will cost for tripods, cables, microphones and iPads. Donate to the STREAMING FUND. You can do this onlinecash, checks or our faithlife app. Help us make this a great experience for you.


        Free Hot Lunch Mission

        The Eloy Hot Lunch program is up and running and needs our help.

        We need desserts for each Wednesday. Can you bake or buy treats for the hot lunch? Treats do not need to be individually wrapped, but they do need to be “finger food”.

        In Casa Grande or AZ City stick your treats with a “hot lunch” tag in the church fridge or freezer (plate, bags or boxed) for the ladies to

        deliver to the program site (just let them know they are there). We need enough for 18 each week.

        Ideally, we would like to stock our freezer with treats for the program! Questions? See Sandy Christopher or Judy Smith.
