Sometimes I feel like I’ll be a student forever. If I have it my way, I’m signing up for as much school as any person can attend in their life. I’ve already been a student for 17 years, so although I don’t know everything, I have some experience in the crazy and sometimes erratic phase of “studenthood.”

I know the feeling of waiting for...

“Marvin, I’ve never had a boss who dressed as nice as you do or talked down to his employees like you do.” 

I looked across the table at Evelyn, not knowing what to think or say.  I wondered, “should I be angry, embarrassed, or offended?”

Evelyn worked for me in one of my early forays into business and pointed out something I was obviously missing. While I had made it a point to let everyone at the office know that I was a follower of Christ it was not...

Are You Bringing God to Work or Bringing Your Work to God?

When asked to write about how my faith had influenced my work life, my initial reaction was, "how did it not"?  My approach was not to try to bring God into the workplace, but rather to use my work to honor God and serve him.  Through 40 years of work, I found that...

We had a six-hour drive ahead of us.  If I’d known what would unfold a few months later, I’d have wished that drive was twice as long.  I was a young sales manager, and spent most of my time feeling in way over my head.  Dan and I were driving from Denver to Casper for a few days of sales calls.  Traveling with Dan was an experience; lots of coffee, not much food, and more meetings than any human should endure.  But that day was different, we just drove and watched the plains of Wyoming drift by. As we talked of past jobs, customers, and the latest in shelving technology the conversation switched from the unimportant to a place I never saw coming...

Announcements:

The deadline to sign-up for the March 17-26, 2019 Food for the Hungry Bolivia Mission Trip is October 7. Anyone interested in going needs to contact Jen Ward at mccbolivia1@gmail.com to reserve their spot!

Scott Walker will be starting a daily prayer meeting at 6:00 A.M. every weekday morning beginning Monday. The meeting will be held in the fellowship hall. Constant, consistent prayer will influence a ministry far beyond any other ministry in the Church. God is looking for faithful prayer warriors.

MCC's Wood Ministry is hosting a Wood Sponsorship Training October 20th from 9:00am-11:30pm at MCC. We will be highlighting what it means to be a sponsor, how sponsorship changes lives, what the process looks like for sponsors and beneficiaries, and more. Please let Don and Ann Moore know at coolmombody@yahoo.com you will be attending! Snacks will be provided.

Shine is changing the way we help our teachers with supplies at A. Montoya! Instead of doing a supply drive, we’ve created a wish list. Needed items will be posted on the Shine bulletin board downstairs in the Fellowship Hall for you to take and purchase. Those items can be returned to Ashley or Marcie who will deliver them to teachers! This way, we can help teachers get what they actually need! Please check the board periodically and give as you feel led!

The One to One Soul Care Conference will be held at MCC November 9-10. Are you interested in biblical counseling? Do you feel you want some training on how to walk with a brother or sister in their dark seasons? Please join us! You can register at http://centercitychurch.org/one-to-one or contact Elizabeth (mccn14@gmail.com) for more information.

Shine is forming a Cookie Posse!  This will be a group of people who would like to bless the staff at A. Montoya with fresh-baked cookies!  Each time a staff member reaches into our cookie jar, it'll be like getting a big hug from one of us.  Please let Ashley Procter or Marcy Bryant know if you are interested in becoming a part of the Cookie Posse!

Shine also has a unique food pantry at A. Montoya! Kids often go to bed without dinner, come to school too late for breakfast, and aren't sure if there will be dinner that night.  We have been asked to create a small food pantry at the school that would contain items like tuna packets, apples, macaroni and cheese, Ensure or Boost, peanut butter crackers, nuts, and the like.  The children could keep these items in their backpacks so that they would always have  something to keep them going.  We are working on putting together a list of items, including gluten-free ones, that we would like to stock the pantry with.  Please pray about whether you would like to donate items or money to help keep the pantry stocked year-round!
