When Serving Comes Full Circle

Jan 25 11:45 AM

When a fellow church member asked me several years ago to volunteer at Care Net Pregnancy Center as a counselor, my first response was “No … I can’t possibly counsel a pregnant teen … I have never even been pregnant … How can I possibly help?” My hesitance was reversed when...

MOPS and the Marathon of Motherhood

Mothers of Preschoolers, MOPS.  

For me, the name elicits many things. For one, it is the mental image of a frazzled mom with a young child clinging to her side and maybe another strapped to her belly.  It is a weary mother who cannot seem to brush her own hair, though she has brushed her children’s.

My Life, God's Tapestry

“Your life is a lot like a quilt,” Barb said, “a masterpiece tapestry made by the Master Craftsman Himself, God.”

I was sitting in my kitchen, still in my pajamas, late in the morning, with a coffee cup in one hand and a phone in the other.  My two year-old hanging on my knee.  I thought, “Disordered tapestry, yes. Masterpiece, no.”

Renee and I planned to have lunch together yesterday to catch up on our lives and just generally enjoy ourselves. 
However, God had far greater plans for us. A young man named Jordan sat down to talk with Renee as she waited for me outside the restaurant. He shared a bit about how he'd just gotten out of jail, how he'd been misunderstood, and how he was trying to get his life together.  When I arrived, Renee stood up and told him that she'd pray for him, and we both started walking away.  He stopped us, though, and asked if we had a couple dollars.  We said no, but Renee offered to...

Digging In: Studying the Bible in Context

Apr 28 11:39 AM
Apr 28 11:39 AM

I will never forget the spring I truly learned about the profound importance of biblical context. It started with a woman who came to see me for counsel. She was terribly depressed because her children were sick and she truly believed it was her fault. It turns out that she thought she didn’t have enough faith! When I tried to clarify, she impatiently said, “You know ‘By His stripes you are healed.’ 1 Peter 2:24.”

So, we looked at the passage, and yes, that was the exact wording. But 1 Peter is not about health at all, it is all about...

MCC Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month from 9:15 am – 11:30 am starting September 3rd! It’s a place of encouragement, community, fellowship and support during the struggles and the joys of being a mother from pregnancy to kindergarten.

MCC Elders are hosting a 4-week Foundations Class starting September 15. This class is designed to better help you get to know MCC - who we are, what we believe and why, and how to get connected. Please sign up with Sarah.

Men’s Bible Study Fellowship resumes September 10! Now is a good time to join with other men from a number of East Mountain churches for a look at how God established His Church. This year’s Bible Study Fellowship study is called Acts and Letters of the Apostles. In it, we will see how God brought His kingdom to earth as the Apostles and other early believers shared the Good News by word and action, trusting in the leading and power of the Holy Spirit. The MCC class meets Tuesdays at 6:30pm from September to May. Men who want to know God and His word better are welcome to attend whether they are familiar with the Bible or not. For information, talk with Tom Young.

Do you want to be more faithful to God’s call to love Him with all your heart, soul, strength and mind?  Are you interested in studying Biblical Theology in an interactive and loving small group community?   Consider joining us as we start a five-month study on “Trinitarianism” in September.  We meet from 6-8pm on the first and third Thursdays of each month at Luke and Melissa Feldner’s house in Cedar Crest.
