Epiphany Ministry Orientation will be hosted by the Nueva Vida Baptist Church on Saturday, May 27th at 9:00 am. The church’s address is 1300 E. Stubbs St. in Edinburg, TX. Epiphany is a prison ministry patterned after the Kairos ministry, but this is for juvenile offenders at the Evins Unit east of Edinburg. Volunteers are needed to work both inside and outside teams. If you think you might be interested in assisting with this program, or just learning more about it, all you have to do is attend this orientation, and then decide what you might want to do. No pre-registration is required

Gathering begins at 4:30 pm, with proceedings starting at 5:00 pm. We have 3 tables reserved. You may pay your $13.00 any time up to when we leave for Harlingen.

Confirmation will be June 4th, on Pentecost Sunday, during the 11:00 service. Our confirmands are diligently working on their Affirmations of Faith. Please keep them in your prayers as they complete their studies.

In His Steps We are in need of BOYS socks for the shoe bank. We have lots of pretty girls’ socks in the basket, but really have to dig to find anything for the boys. All sizes are needed – including those for the guys that are big. You can leave them at the Welcome Center or the office.
