April 30th our Hispanic Mission Church Iglesia Bautista La Fe will conduct a special event entitled:
Day of the Children
Starting at 3:30PM
In Mexico this is a very celebrated holiday designed to recognize the blessing children are to our lives.
This event will include a Bounce House, games, and lots of food for the whole family.
In the middle of the event Pastor Marcos will gather all the children together and along with Pastor Chuck they will say a prayer of blessing over the families, asking God to make His Presence and Love known to every family in attendance.
This event will run from 3:30PM to 6:00PM and all the families of Coolidge and the surrounding area are invited to attend and participate in this great day.
Pray for us as we reach out to our community with the Love of Jesus for all the families with children.
Mesquite Tree Festival
is just around the corner. May 1-2. FBC Coolidge will, with Iglesia Bautista La Fe, be supplying tables and chairs under tents for shade to the people attending the festival to have a place to eat and meet. We will supply cold water, and will have a table set up for those in need of special prayer. This was well accepted last year and we hope this year to have a larger area than last year as we ran out of room.
Come help us set up tables, meet and greet festival attenders, and then clean up and return all tables and chairs to the church. Be the love of Jesus on display at this festival that someone might know that they are important to Father God and to the Lord Jesus Christ.

2015 Message Theme/Series
Each Sunday Pastor Chuck will focus our attention on how the Bible teaches us to more effectively follow the Lord Jesus Christ. We will look at how the clutter of the world can collect into our lives and begin to hinder our fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit.
Pastor Chuck will show us from the Bible how God teaches us to make His Pathway Straight Into Our Lives and what we must do to fully enjoy the uninterrupted fellowship of God in our lives today.
Each month we will take a different focus.
In April our focus is understanding how the Resurrected Jesus makes a difference in our lives today. As we encounter Jesus each day, we will ask the question and seek the answer of how such a daily encounter with Him will change us into His likeness, causing us to clean out the clutter of this world in our lives. We will seek to fill our lives with what God wants and let Him flow freely through us to others.
Come be with us when you can and learn with us how to make God's Pathway Straight Into Our Lives.
New Sunday Morning Series for 2015:
Making God's Pathway into Your Life Straight
This began February 1st. For 2015 we will be looking at key areas in our lives where we can work to give God greater access and control, helping us to live our lives more like Jesus.
Also pray as we have started a new Sunday Evening Study based on Thom Rainer's video modules entitled Four Steps to Church Revitalization. We are asking that all church members make the effort to attend and participate. All are invited to come. We will also continue our

10 There was a disciple in Damascus named Ananias. And the Lord said to him in a vision, “Ananias!” “Here I am, Lord!” he said. 11 “Get up and go to the street called Straight,” the Lord said to him, “to the house of Judas, and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, since he is praying there. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and placing his hands on him so he can regain his sight.” 13 “Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard from many people about this man, how much harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem. 14 And he has authority here from the chief priests to arrest all who call on Your name.” 15 But the Lord said to him, “Go! For this man is My chosen instrument to take My name to Gentiles, kings, and the Israelites. 16 I will show him how much he must suffer for My name!” 17 So Ananias left and entered the house. Then he placed his hands on him and said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road you were traveling, has sent me so that you can regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” 18 At once something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he got up and was baptized.
