Update from Pastor Carl
(July 16, 2020)
Hi RLC/Anchor West Family! I hope you are all doing well. I wanted to take a few moments to give you some updates about our upcoming weeks at RLC/Anchor West. Hopefully, by now you all know that Real Life Church is transitioning into Anchor Church West. We are partnering with Anchor Church of Albuquerque so that we can have the greatest impact possible on our community, and we are excited for all that God is going to do through this partnership.
God is already doing some big things in our fellowship as we are moving forward in our change to Anchor West Church. New people are looking at joining the team, we are being strengthened already through our partnership with Anchor, and lives are still being impacted despite the big changes Covid, riots, and other world issues have brought our way.
Below you will find our upcoming meeting schedule and some updates. Please be mindful that these dates/activities are set, but COVID may force us to make some changes. I will update you immediately should any changes arise. Please also check back here regularly or our social media accounts for the most up to date info.
July 19 - Meet with North Anchor Campus in person or online (West Campus assists in leading worship)
July 26 - Meet with North Anchor Campus in person or online

(Online services are currently prerecorded and shown online Sunday. While they are the same sermons and worship as the live service, these are not livestreams of the service.)
Attendance: I want to encourage each of you to attend the service you are most comfortable with. If you would like to join us in person, great! If you’re more comfortable social distancing and watching online, great! What’s important is that we still all are intentional to be the church, worship the Lord, and continue to grow in faith and on mission.
We are in process of updating all our website address, media, graphics, and logos to reflect our new name, Anchor West. You will start seeing our social media change logos and name by the end of the month. We are also in process of getting new signage, church apparel, and other church branded items.
Please remember to continue your faithful giving to the church so we can continue working towards building up our community to the glory of God.
You can give securely online here CLICK TO GIVE (Click online giving, under "Fund" click "West Anchor") or you can mail your offering to 8100 Wyoming Blvd. NE, M4-166, Albuquerque, NM 87113. Please make checks payable to Anchor Church and write “West Campus” on the memo line.
We still have some funds designated to help those who need it during this time. If you know of anyone who needs food, clothing, or help of any kind; let me know and we’ll get that help to them.
We will have a few meetings across the next few weeks to plan, prep, and pray to start meeting in person again on the westside. If you'd like to be a part of those meetings, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be praying for me, our team, and the church as seek out how to fulfill God’s call on us in this ever changing world. I’ll have more updates about meetings, outreach, etc. as we keep moving forward, and will keep you updated regularly. Please feel free to reach out to me any time with questions, concerns, or anything else you may need.
I love and appreciate all of you. I am so excited for where God is leading us! Big things are coming! I hope to see you all soon, whether in person or online.
