District News Ministers In Training (MIT) Courses Available   In partnership with Nazarene Bible College, the district  is now offering face-to-face classroom-based, college-  level courses designed to produce effective ministers  and to fulfill the educational requirements for  ordination. These courses replace the previous Modular  Course of Study (MCOS) offered on the district which  were non-degree courses.   The new courses, being offered through the New Mexico  Alliance Education Program, will allow students to earn  college credits either immediately or in the future.   Other benefits to these courses is the opportunity to  gather together with MIT peers from across the district,  to experience collaboration opportunities, share real  ministry experiences, and build new relationships in a  learning environment.  For more information, to register for classes and to see  the class schedule, go to the Alliance Program page of  this website by clicking here.  NM Children Represent District At World Quiz In  Indianapolis  Fourteen kids went to Indianapolis to participate in the  World Quiz.

Church News  Angus - Sunday, September 3rd, was a “Day to Serve.” Instead of having services they went out into the community. Approximately 80 people were involved in different areas of service. A crew went to Capitan to cut weeds on the lot of a retired veteran who is unable to do the upkeep. Crews went to Alto Lake and Grindstone Lake to pick up trash. A crew went to the Ruidoso Police Department to clean up the front of their property and a crew went to the Ruidoso Community Center to complete a landscaping project. Several members of the church who can’t work physically, baked cookies that were delivered to the hospital, EMS station, Police and Fire Departments, and two local nursing facilities. The cookies were also given to community workers to thank them for their service. Another group from the church stood in front of a grocery store with a sign that said, “Free Cookies and Prayer.” More people stopped for prayer than for the cookies. The group was able to pray with a woman who had been contemplating suicide and they let her know there is hope through Christ.  Clovis Living Stones Community - Reverend Eric and Jessica Zottneck will assume staff positions at the church on October 1st. They will be serving in the youth and children’s ministries.  El Paso First - took in five new members on August 27th: Roy Garcia, Angel Garcia, Rocio Castro, Jorge Saucedo and Ana Rendon.  Gallup First - A group from Bethany, Oklahoma First Church of the Nazarene, arrived in June and put in new linoleum flooring in the foyer, hallway, bath and kitchen, and remodeled a small apartment in the church.
