MAMA – Monte Vista Area Ministerial Association

Aug. 12 we gathered at the F.A.R.M. property for a picnic, games, and time at the river.  Pastor introduced people to the vision of F.A.R.M. and four congregations came:  Calvary Baptist, St. Peter’s Lutheran, the Nazarene church, and the Presbyterian Church.  It was a beautiful day outside at the river.  The water was perfect, and a lot of kids had fun swimming, catching frogs, and trying out the zip line.  And…”The Lutherans won the Tug of War-!”  (…but, actually there’s a fuller picture, there…  🙂



Grace Stults was commissioned as a LCMS Teacher on July 15, 2018, by her father, Rev. Don Stults.  What a joy to have some former and current school teachers present for the day!  Great blessings also came through special service music and family who attended.


“But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”  Isaiah 40:31

Blessings, Will!



We had a beautiful setting for Fellowship, as well as a beautiful wall hanging in our sanctuary for the celebration of the Lord’s Resurrection-!

He is risen…  He is risen, indeed! … Alleluia!
