A Fluffy Dog and A New Friendship
by Joni Dobran
"Winter is my favorite time of year but Autumn is a very close second... the summer heat is finally behind us, giving way to cooler days and chilly evenings. I'm always on the lookout for migrating birds flying overhead or feeding in a field. Fall colors are bursting through in all their glory, making Sunday drives even more enjoyable. The cooler weather also means..." Click here to read the rest of Joni's "A Fluffy Dog and A New Friendship." 
What's Happening at MCC
2019 Proposed Budget
The 2019 Proposed Budget request has been amended and is re-posted!  You can click on the blue button above to read the amended request, pick up a copy in the foyer or you can email Elizabeth  for an electronic version.  Please join us after each service October 28th to discuss, ask questions, and prayerfully consider what the Lord may be calling us to in 2019!

Please note - the Sponsorship Training for the Wood Ministry will be rescheduled for a later date. Please contact Don & Ann Moore with questions.

 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! Click here to register for the conference or contact Elizabeth for more information.

Please note that there will not be First Service Sunday School this weekend.  See you on October 28th!

Pull out your mixers and aprons! SHINE is looking for people who can donate cakes, or other desserts, for A. Montoya’s Fall Festival! Cakes can be dropped off at the church foyer Friday, October 26 between 9:00 am - 3:00 pm.  Questions?  Click here to sign up to bring a cake!

MCC is gearing up for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoebox drive! The mission of OCC is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Last year MCC collected 230 shoe boxes to be gifted to children around the world! Boxes will be available this Sunday, October 21st, in the foyer and the final drop-off date is November 11th! It is a great time to start gathering items to bless children around the world!

The MCC Safety Team is conducting its semi-annual assessment. If you have suggestions to improve the safety of our congregation, please address them to “Safety Team” and place in the sanctuary box.  Additionally, you’ll notice the new crash bar and safety lock on the downstairs Fellowship Hall door.  For the safety of our nursery, children, and staff, the Safety Team will begin locking the downstairs door during service hours and asking people to enter through the Sanctuary door at those times.  The door will be unlocked for Fellowship.

Fiesta MOPS Family Fire Safety
Last weekend's Family Fire Safety Fiesta, hosted by MOPS, couldn’t have been more fun! The weather was beautiful, the firefighters were wonderful, there were games, races, prizes, food, fun, and of course the epic box car races did not disappoint. Many thanks to the firefighters from Station 40 & 46, Canyon Young for education in fire ecology, and the Gray family for their contribution to the Highlighting Heroes display. Also, many thanks to those that donated their time, energy and resources to make this happen (especially Jeanette Cox!) and to Mountain Christian Church for supporting this MOPS event. It truly was a great time had by all and a blessed event!
