During the month of February, gather with Madera Church for an “in-person” parking lot service at EFCGV! We will gather Sundays at 3 pm, with two options for seating. We invite you to either park in your car and tune in with your radio, or sit outdoors in provided seating that is physically distanced. Kids ministry available during service.
 
Madera Church is a church family made up of Home Groups. We meet at different times, days and locations to discuss Sunday’s message, have fellowship, pray for and support one another in our journey with Christ. Find a Group that is a fit for you by exploring the various options here!

    Nehemiah Part 6 – Don’t Listen to the Lies
    Nehemiah 6:1-16
    1) When distracted by "good opportunities," stand firm on Godly priorities (vs 1-4) 2) When distracted by gossip and slander, be determined to press forward (vs 5-9) 3) When distracted by fear of the future, obey the Lord in the present (vs 10-14)

  • Feb 5, 2021Nehemiah Part 5 – Trouble Inside the Walls
    Feb 5, 2021
    Nehemiah Part 5 – Trouble Inside the Walls
    References: Nehemiah 5, Ephesians 4:26, Psalm 4:4, and Galatians 1:10
     
    In Chapter 5 we see a problem revealed within the walls of the city (vs. 1-5), Nehemiah confronts this problem head on and finds a solution (vs 6-13), and concludes by showing how he chose to lead by example(vs. 14-19).
     
    This passage is a great reminder to not sin in our anger, but to take the time to calm down and find a solution that will give God the glory.

Pastor Bill and his wife, Megan, married in 2001. They served in CO (2002-2008) and IL (2008-2019) before being called by the Lord to plant a church here in AZ. Bill’s passion is sharing the hope of Jesus, partnering with parents, and equipping people to use their gifts for God’s glory. He received a BA in Bible & Theology in 2002 and completed a MA in Spiritual Formation in 2016. Bill loves being with people, but get’s recharged by being alone in God’s creation. He enjoys hiking in the mountains, hunting big game, nature photography, and going on drives with his family to look for wildlife. A favorite passage from the Bible, amongst many, is 2 Corinthians 5:11-21.

 Children Ministry Director:
Abby Brayer

She has used that knowledge to work in Christian and public schools as well as homeschool her own daughters.

Building friendships and discussing God’s Word and how it relates to real life are his passion, so Small Groups and Outreach are a good fit.
