Building Relationships, One Cord at a Time
By Dave Kenney & Elizabeth Allan
"She was smiling behind an oxygen mask and extending a cup of coffee to me.  “Here,” she shouted above the grumble of chainsaws, “you look a little cold.”  I was grateful for the warmth on that chilly fall morning, but more grateful that she was here. Her oxygen tank was propped against a stump..." Click here to read the rest of "Building Relationships, One Cord at a Time" and see why Wood Ministry sponsorship matters and how it transforms lives!
What's Happening at MCC

MCC's MOPS group is hosting a Fall Family Fire Safety Fiesta October 13th from 2:00pm-5:00pm at MCC! Participants can meet a fire fighter, identify common household fire hazards, listen to stories of inspirational fire fighters in our community, explore fire ecology and participate in fire safety simulations. There will be food, fun, free take home stuff, costumes, an EPIC box car race, obstacle course and possibly an appearance from Mr. Smokey the Bear himself!!! Donations and proceeds from this event will go toward the MOPS ministry.

The Food for the Hungry Bolivia Mission Trip is set for March 17-26, 2019. If you want to be part of the team, contact Jen Ward by October 7th to save your spot!
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. If you have questions, please talk with Dave Kenney.

Scott Walker invites you to pray with him every weekday morning at 6:00 a.m.  Please come and join him in the Fellowship Hall to hold up MCC and the ministries in constant, consistent prayer.

MCC's Wood Ministry is hosting a Wood Sponsorship Training October 20th from 9:00 a.m. -11:30 a.m.
We will highlight what it means to be a sponsor and how sponsorship changes lives. Please contact Don and Ann Moore to let them know 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 which we have posted on the Shine bulletin board downstairs in the Fellowship Hall. Take a tag if you want to purchase an item. Give your purchase to Ashley or Marcy who will deliver them to teachers! 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! Click here to register for the conference or contact Elizabeth for more information.

Pray for Our Outreach
Please pray for our Missions Program
  • Please pray that our Lord will guide our Missions Team as we are the stewards of the resources that He provides through our church.
  • Please pray that He will inspire and protect the missionary pastors that we support in Peru and Ethiopia. Pray that He will allow them to bring people to Christ as they live in the local communities.
  • Pray that He will fill the volunteers at ISI and Juntos with the Holy Spirit and help them to come alongside international students at UNM and young students in the International District so that the message of salvation through Jesus Christ is shared.
  • Please pray that our Lord will bless and strengthen our relationships in Bolivia as we plan for another mission trip, and for mutual transformation to occur before, during and after the trip.
  • Please pray that the Holy Spirit will be with Pastor Frank in Ethiopia, that he will be successful in training new pastors, and that Frank’s love for Christ will be contagious and will touch the hearts of all those that he meets.
