Traveling in Truth & Grace Part IV
What if I am the Wayward Fool?
By Elizabeth Allan
At the Loving the Wayward Souls Conference, Zack Eswine shared his painfully powerful testimony intertwined with

What's Happening at MCC

The Fellowship Hall is complete!  We hope you will come and check it out. However, please by aware that there is a new carpet smell.

Sisters in Stitches will be meeting Wednesday, September 12th at 11:30 in the Fellowship Hall.  Both newcomers and experienced sewers are invited to share their talents, time and ideas! We are planning upcoming workshops for enthusiastic young sewers, discussing prayer quilt ideas and looking for ideas on how we can serve other church ministries and the community. This is an organizational gathering so no need to bring a sewing machine this week. Contact: Davra Clayton.

We are so grateful to Amanda Coffman for her years of faithful service as our lead tech person. However, she has respectfully asked to step down, and we are looking for someone who would be willing to undertake her position. The Lead Tech would be responsible for recruiting and training volunteers, maintaining equipment, and working with the musicians. In some seasons, this could take more time than others, and we are considering making this a paid part-time position. Contact Elizabeth for more information.

Ladies! Please join us for Sips & Salads on September 19th at 6:00 p.m.!  Lou Ann Hunt will teach us how to make thank you cards so we can express our gratitude to the people the Lord has placed in our lives!  RSVP to Elizabeth and let her know what salad or dessert you can bring.

Community Women’s Bible Study begins in September! We offer two times: Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm beginning on September 11th and Wednesday mornings at 9:15am beginning September 12th.  We will be studying Kelly Minter’s “All Things New” from 2 Corinthians and the cost is $18. Both groups meet at the MCC and childcare is provided for Wednesday mornings only.  Contact Pam Cravens for the morning session and Sharon Albonico for the evening session.

 Shine is setting up 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.  Please pray about whether you would like to donate items or money to help keep the pantry stocked year-round!  There is a list in the foyer of the items would bless the children or see Ashley Procter.
"Salvation is not just warming the old up --
it is God doing something new in us."

Meet Mike Oliver!
Mike Oliver has managed the Building & Grounds for the campus for years. He shovels snow, plants and cares for flowers, paints, and changes light bulbs, to name just a few things.  He is gracious, patient, and undertakes tasks that need to be done that most of us don't even think about.  You might know Mike from 1st Service Sunday School, worship in 2nd Service, or Men's BSF.  We are so grateful for Mike!  

God has blessed MCC with brothers and sisters who love Him, reflect Him, and serve Him.
