Live Streaming!

We are now video broadcasting via Facebook Live for Sunday Worship Services and other special events!

Christ commands us to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation” (Mark 16:15). Live streaming allows us to fulfill the great commission and reach people we’ve never reached before. During the month of September, we reached over 400 people via streaming.

Today most people start their search for a church on Google instead of walking through the church doors. Broadcasting our services online shows seekers a glimpse of the community they can join.   It also allows our members who are home sick, their caregivers, vacationers, or those gone for the winter, to stay connected and be a part of what’s happening despite their distance.

Showcasing our sermons and services online makes new families more comfortable with who we are, what we’re about, and what they should expect from our ministry. We record each service so they are now available online (24×7) at &

We need help to provide this ministry weekly, To help with this important ministry, please contact us

Prayers for October

Household Prayer: Morning

Help us, God, as we rise this day, to seek out your will as we enjoy the good and suffer through the bad.

Prove us, O God, and try us so that we can learn the steps we need to take to follow your ways.


Household Prayer: Evening

When I felt like a dejected child, rejected and lost, your comfort surrounded me, and I felt as if I was home.

Thank you for your embracing heart, for making me feel special and loved, for helping me up, and for saying that you are my brother, my Savior, my friend.

Thank you, Jesus.

Godspell Performance is Coming to Cloudcroft by Elation!

Elation! is coming soon to Cloudcroft NM on Friday, June 22nd at 7pm! Everyone is invited to share in this musical presentation – admission is free!

Elation! Defined as a feeling of immense joy, it is also the name of the youth group based at St. Stephen United Methodist Church in Mesquite, Texas by the kids who founded the group. The idea of Elation originated in the 1970’s when the predecessor to Elation, Celebration Singers, started touring the United States performing Godspell, a musical based on the gospel according to St. Matthew. In 1999, during a mission trip to Jackson, Mississippi, a group of adults and youth decided to revive what Celebration Singers had begun.

Starting that fall, Elation began meeting once a week for a time of fellowship and dedicated practice to prepare for an annual summer tour. The group consists of an average 25 to 30 youth ranging from 6th grade to seniors in high school, ages 11 to 18, all of which come from different faiths and belief structures. Besides rehearsing Godspell, the group works all year on community service projects and fundraisers to fund their tour. Elation has traveled all over the United States, from California to Florida, from Washington to New York. Elation has touched many lives, from audiences to the kids who grow under the care of the group.

The current group consists of 26 kids from Junior and Senior High from Mesquite Texas. Sharing the word of God though their presentations for the past 18 years while traveling over 60,000 miles, and worshiping with over 200 congregations. A spectacular and spiritual high for all! Watch for the Time of production to be posted! Will be an evening performance.
