Sending Hope
As believers, we are called to boldly send the hope of the gospel. No matter where we are, God is calling us to be on a mission through praying, giving and going.  Your prayers and 100% of your financial support make it possible for the North American Mission Board to train, resource and send missionaries who share the good news of Christ.  You can give online (no online fees) at at anytime.

National Day of Prayer Is Thursday, May 2
Pray for America!
Love one another. 
John 13:34

 Missions Offering

Keep God First 

Please call to make arrangements to visit with Dan. Dan can be reached at church at 535-2977, home at 535-4777, or on his NEW cell phone at 575-654-2134.  For current church information
Like any organization, a church needs a way to get in touch with its congregation quickly in the event of an emergency or just for quicker, easier form of communication.  Not everyone makes it to Sunday services to hear our announcements or read our bulletin.  DialMyCalls can be used for numerous announcements and to specific groups within the church. Within just a few minutes our entire church family receives a message and becomes immediately informed. As announcements need to be made, will be used.  If you have any questions, visit with Brenda.

VBS will be held at the Trinity Presbyterian Church this year, Monday-Friday, July 8-12.  The Theme will be “In The Wild”.   
Get ready to gas up the all-terrain vehicle and head out on a wilderness adventure like no other. Get up close and personal with the animals, and so much more!   This summer kids will focus in on some amazing, real-life encounters with Jesus. Each encounter is like a snapshot—a special moment in time captured on the pages of Scripture. The kids will discover that each snapshot of Jesus is an opportunity to respond to the gospel. And when put together, these isolated encounters clearly reveal the most amazing truth of all—Jesus Christ is the Messiah, and by believing we can have life in His name.
Are you ready?  Watch for details!
