"We need the work of sorrow in our lives, to complete us. 
In that place, dark though it may be,
there is a feast for the soul."

How Has God Used You to Serve in Unexpected Ways?

"When a fellow church member asked JoAnn several years ago to volunteer at Care Net Pregnancy Center as a counselor, her first response was “No … I can’t possibly counsel a pregnant teen … I have never even been pregnant … How can I possibly help?" She was in for a surprise! Click here to read about how God used JoAnn in the way she least expected it and how through it, God transformed her heart!

What's Happening at MCC
May 7th is MCC’s official VBS kickoff! Join us for service that morning to learn more about VBS and how you can get involved! Contact Paul Brouse or visit the website for more information. Registration begins June 1st!

Care Net is looking for new volunteers! Positions are open to both men and women. The training is Tuesday's and Thursday's from May 11- June 1 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Volunteers need to submit an application through Paulette at 505-281-5408. If you have questions contact JoAnn Tallant or Adele Kobs.

Parents, have you ever wondered what Thursday Night Live is all about? Do you want to be more involved with what your children are learning? MCC Youth Ministries invites youth parents to join them Thursday, May 11th at 6:15 to discuss their purpose; over pizza.  We plan to share our vision and purpose for the TNL ministry, hear from parents on how we can better partner with them to help their kids navigate adolescence and talk about our summer plans. Parents of middle school, high school and college students are invited, regardless of whether or not their student currently attends TNL. Contact Marv Procter with questions and to RSVP.

Farmer's Market Team Member’s needed! The Cedar Crest Farmer’s Market is a seasonal market supporting roughly 22 local farmers and small growers located here in the East Mountains. The market is held in the MCC parking lot and runs from June through October.  We are looking for four to five volunteers willing to show up from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. Wednesday afternoons during the season to serve as representatives of the church. Ideally, we need members who enjoy meeting people, can show a real interest in what the vendors are offering for sale, and who want to build personal relationships while sharing the gospel. Contact Tom O'Brien for more information about this opportunity.
Graduation is almost here and we want to help our graduating Senior’s celebrate this milestone! Youth Ministry is planning a Graduation Recognition Sunday for June 4th and we need parent’s help! Parents of graduating seniors, please send in up to four photos of your graduating senior and a favorite verse to Joy by May 31st. The pictures will be shared as part of a graduation video!

Prayer for Outreach Ministries
Please pray for VBS!
VBS doesn’t just happen; it requires enormous work and
resources. But most of all it requires enormous prayer.
The results are worth it!
  • Please pray that God will provide the workers and resources to meet the needs of the program.
  • Please pray that God will work through the leaders, to build up the workers, and to meet the needs of the kids and their families.
  • Pray that workers will understand that their greatest contribution to VBS will not be just how well they present a Bible story, sing a song, or make a snack, but how well they build relationships with the kids, teens and adults attending VBS.
  • Pray that VBS leaders will see that the true evangelistic potential of VBS is not just the week of VBS, but the weeks that follow, as relationships are built through continued connections.
  • Please ask that God will give VBS leaders a vision for an intentional follow-up that goes beyond a “thanks for attending” postcard.
  • Please thank God for giving the opportunity to Mountain Christian Church to reach unchurched individuals. Ask God to give us opportunity to develop relationships with those families.
All the women in MCC's Community Women's Bible Study want to thank Sharon Albonico, Kay Willadsen, Pam Cravens and Barb Proctor for their dedication to sharing God's Word with us this year! We are eager to see how the Lord leads you in the Fall!
