As summer officially kicks off, please begin praying about the relationships the Lord may give you the opportunity to build. Not sure where to start? Look across your driveway, at the parents who drop their kids off for VBS, your children’s sports coaches, your hiking buddy, the person across your cubicle, your friends and neighbors -- how can you be a bridge for the Gospel?
As God brings people into our lives, consider how you can go beyond conventional niceties to actual relationships.
You might wonder how, though. You make a friend … and then what?
We want you to challenge you this summer to engage with the non-believers that the Lord has placed in your circle.
One idea is to invite them to a baseball game! MCC has access to discounted tickets to an Isotope Game on July 22nd. Sign up your family and non-believing friends or family and attend together! What a great way to witness to a new family……through generosity, sportsmanship and fun! The deadline to sign-up for those tickets is July 16th! Invite someone today!
If a ballgame isn’t a good fit, you might consider a movie. Plan a time to meet with the family for a matinee and pizza afterward!
A little more bookish? Consider starting a book club!
Or, or, or, there are so many ways to initiate opportunities!
You are fearfully and wonderfully made and your hobbies and interests are specifically designed to open avenues of intentional relationships where you can share the Good News of a Great Savior!
But it starts with prayer, so please be in prayer now! Who knows how the Lord may use your personality to impact eternity? Let us know, too, how we might pray with you. And may God transform you and be glorified!
We are excited to announce that we will have an in-person worship service outside at 8:30am 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 10:00am 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.
Please stay home if any of the following apply to you:
- You are immunocompromised.
- You are feeling ill (running a fever, coughing, or showing other signs of sickness)
Please don’t put yourself or others at risk. Thank you for staying home and staying safe, because we love you!
All MCC Ministry in person meetings are suspended at this time BUT many ministries are reaching out through phone calls, emails and digital platforms such as Skype, Zoom, and Googlemeetings. Contact your ministry leader to see if this is an option for you!
