Week Five: Faith

Christmastime is a time of gifts. More than just the boxes we open, scripture shows us the real gifts of Christmas: the ones that come through Jesus Christ. Join us, and unwrap gifts that can’t be contained in a box, gift bag, or envelope. Gifts that will change your life.

Scripture for the Week: John 1:18
Psalm for the Day: Psalm 96


O God, you have caused this holy night to shine with the brightness of the true Light: Grant that we, who have known the mystery of that Light on earth, may also enjoy him perfectly in heaven; where with you and the Holy Spirit he lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.


MWSU Food Drive
The MWSU Campus has a food pantry to help students in need be able to eat. Many times just paying tuition and rent uses up most of their income. There are times when the cafeteria is not open and a student cannot afford to eat out. Your donation of any of the following items will support students in their education and help the graduate with less debt: canned meats (tuna and salmon), crackers, peanut butter, canned ravioli, tuna helper, evaporated milk, canned fruit, pre-made jello/pudding/etc., cereal/oatmeal, pasta/sauce, shampoo/conditioner, bar soap, deodorant, body wash, razors, diapers, baby food. 

New Vine Campus Ministry
New Vine meets weekly at 7pm on the MWSU Campus, Murphy building, room 109. We are always looking for volunteers. Contact Tom Keller if interested.



January 2016

THEY said you can’t heal on the Sabbath.

THEY said you can’t be the Son of God.

THEY said you can’t forgive sins.

Who are they anyway?

Losing Religion. Finding Faith.
