Denise Baker’s Retirement

Congratulations to Denise on retiring after 33 years with US Fish and Wildlife Div. She threw herself a cake after worship and even enlisted willing helpers to slice it.

Chocolate Fantasy Cake Contest

Pastry chef Laura Gonzales was the people’s choice first-place winner in the cake exhibition in the Da Vinci-themed Chocolate Fantasy, a benefit for the NM Museum of Natural History, on Mar 10. Entries had to be 80% chocolate. Laura used chocolate fondant, white and dark chocolate plastic, and white and dark chocolate for the detail work to create this Leonardo-worthy masterpiece. All in this photo is edible (except the frame). Congratulations, Laura!

Lutheran Family Services

After over a year’s hiatus, Lutheran Family Services is again placing refugee and asylee families into Albuquerque-area  communities. They are currently in need of new or gently used pillows, lamps, mixing bowls and serving utensils. The apartments are small so LFS does not need any large furniture or furnishings.  

There is a collection box inside our church front doors.  Please call Russ Dykehouse (505.891.9813) or email with questions.

Scholars’ Potluck

March 18 marked our annual combined Scholarship Potluck and Spring Hymn Fest.  The money raised ($2,717) will go to supporting Mexican Scholars in Ciudad Juarez, so they can get beyond a 6th-grade education; supporting a Seminary student from partner Caibarién Presbyterian-Reformed Church of Caibarién, Cuba to attend seminary; and $500 scholarships for our college-bound youth.  Additionally, $130 was raised for the Heifer Fund.

The food included some great Mexican and Cuban dishes.

AND THE BAND PLAYED ON: Tues. 10:00-noon

The New Horizons Band will be rehearsing in our sanctuary each Tuesday from 10:00 am til noon. This is a group of retired musicians who simply love to get together and play. Sometime in the course of their season, we hope to have them give a concert for us! Welcome to our new musical neighbors!
