church service & Activity cancellationS

Dear Montwood family,

As all of you know, our world has been impacted by the COVID-19 or coronavirus. Schools have made the decision to extend Spring Break or go on-line, sporting events and other mass gatherings have been cancelled, and travel has been curtailed or even prohibited.

Although the risk for the average person from this virus remains low, especially if hygienic precautions are taken, nevertheless our senior saints and those with underlying health conditions remain at risk. Because of this and the fact that there is now a confirmed case in El Paso, we have decided to forego all of our activities. This includes Sunday School, worship, small groups, and youth activities until further notice.

The Sunday school (0930 am) and the Sunday Sermon will be live streamed on our Facebook page.  We will post any future updates about events on Facebook, our website, and through e-mails and phone calls. If you know of anyone who does not have access to these means of communication, please take a moment and contact them so that they are aware of what is going on.

The monthly Food Pantry Distribution has been cancelled for May 2020.  The church leadership will decide on a monthly basis when to resume the food distribution. 

As believers, we operate in faith, not in fear. We trust that God will provide for and protect us. We are spiritual beings who are not focused solely on our physical existence. At the same time, we must care for and protect the most vulnerable among us from coming to harm. Even though the likelihood of something tragic happening is still remote, we do not want for even one member of our flock to fall ill or worse as a result of coming to one of our meetings.

Thank you for your understanding. May God bless you and your families during this uncertain time.
Jim, Lonnie, Demetrius

The Montwood church of Christ

The Montwood church of Christ is a non-denominational bilingual church that looks to God’s word in the Bible as an authority and guide for all we do. We are a loving, accepting family with a common belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God. We believe that it is by the grace of God that we have been brought into an eternal relationship with Him.

The church family is a community of real people who have all types of hurts, pains, discouragements, and problems, just like anyone else. We come together because God has forgiven our sins and is changing us into something new. It is our aim to personally know the love of God, powerfully show that love through our daily lives, and prayerfully go with God’s love into our community.

As a group of people, we experience Jesus: his love, compassion, and grace. He fills us with His healing Spirit and calls us to follow him. The Montwood Family is a place where you too can experience love, acceptance, and forgiveness. If you are searching for a church home, we'd like you to know that there's a special place here just for you!

If you have not yet committed your life to Jesus, we would appreciate the opportunity to assist you in your faith journey through group or individual Bible study.
