The works of God’s hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. They are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.” Psalm 111:7-8

You are invited to join our 10:00 a.m. Sunday morning worship service VIRTUALLY ONLY on our Facebook page. The title of Susan Goe’s message is “Name Recognition” (Deut. 18:15-20; Mark 1:21-28). Janet Hansen & Fran Chadwick will sing “O Lord, Our God, How Excellent.” Music will be provided so that our hymns may be sung and they include “All Creatures of Our God and King”, “Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise,” and “Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah.”

  • It’s Per Capita time, once again! Per Capita funding is how Presbyterians equally and mutually share the cost of coming together to discern the Spirit’s leading for the future. The councils of the three higher governing bodies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) determine the funds needed to run their own regional office for the given year. The amount per person is determined and then multiplied by the reported membership for each church.

The amount needed for each church member of Grand Canyon Presbytery to support the three governing bodies in 2021 is $38.51.

And just so you know, our Church pays the full amount for each member in January of each year. We invite you to help support the overall church budget by contributing $38.51 for each member in your household. Any money that you contribute will be returned to the General Fund. We thank so very much for all the support you provide to the church.

  • Previously scheduled events for January such as the January Session meeting, annual officer’s retreat, service of Installation & Ordination, and the Annual Meeting of the Congregation, have all been postponed until, hopefully, sometime in February. Watch for announcements in your e-mail.

Our Sunday worship service begins at 10:00 a.m. Following the guidelines of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Book of Order, our weekly worship is planned around five major actions:

  1. Gathering around the word – a joyous time of song and greeting one another in the name of Christ, as well as preparing our hearts to receive the Word by confessing our sins.
  2. Proclaiming the word – readings from the Old & New Testaments, special music from our choir or soloists, and a sermon based on the Scripture.
  3. Responding to the word – we respond to the Good News of God’s word to us through our prayers and offerings.
  4. The sealing of the word – a benediction and blessings send us out.
  5. Bearing and following the word into the world – it is now our responsibility to take what we heard and live our lives to God’s glory.

At Mingus View, we celebrate the Sacrament of Communion on the first Sunday of every month. All are welcome to the Lord’s table. Gluten-free bread and plain water are available for those unable to eat the traditional communion food.
