Food for the Hungry works with families to leverage their assets, no matter how small, to better their lives. We saw an example of this at the home of Christian, Jennifer Ward's sponsored child. Their home is typical for the neighborhood, with one exception, the yard is a little larger than most. So, an FH agronomist worked with the family to convert the space into a vegetable garden! The vegetables they grow, and sell in the market, pay the family's rent each month. This is a great example of helping without hurting; using our God given talents and assets to improve. The team worked with the family in their garden Saturday.
We are excited to announce that we will have an in-person worship service outside this Sunday, May 31 at 9:00am in the MCC parking lot! We can’t wait to see you! In addition, our Sunday live-stream (on Facebook and Instagram) will move to 10:30am for the foreseeable future for those who are not be able to join us.
We’ve chosen for our service to happen outdoors as there are still a number of requirements and protocol for indoor gatherings. So, we are not inviting you to join us indoors at this time. Instead, come for our outdoor gathering, or continue to join us online later from home.
Please read the Guidelines for Gathering to Worship Together at MCC in its entirety so that you know what to expect when you come to our outdoor service. This will help you and those around you navigate a very new situation, hopefully in a way that is as seamless as possible. We believe that our unity will be expressed and strengthened as we serve one another in Christ this week so join us in extending grace to each other, amid our differing perspectives, and different views about how to live in this time.
“... submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”
“Outdo one another in showing honor.”
“By this all men will know that you are My disciples,
if you have love for one another.”
Please know that we are making every effort for this gathering to be in full compliance with the protocols given by authorities. No single plan for our meeting will ever be the perfect solution in any one person’s eyes. We will all be making compromises. But as we defer to these guidelines set up by our elders and leadership, we will be serving our fellow believers, honoring Christ as best we can, and providing for a beautiful expression of worship to happen together.
