The Forever Home
By Jodi Kenney
We’ve moved six times in the 13 years we’ve been married, and have another move on the horizon. This aspect of our military life is not for the faint of heart, but it draws us near to God again and again. Throughout the years and moves, one of the things I’ve held fast to is our ‘forever home.’ Click here to read Jodi's, "The Forever Home."    
What's Happening at MCC

Shine Opportunity! Churches across Albuquerque are being invited to participate in a new initiative. APS is cooking and delivering Thanksgiving meals to families recognized as “food insecure” at schools across the city.  A meal for a family of four costs $40.  Schools with Shine volunteers will be given priority, as we will have volunteers to help distribute the meals However, we have to let APS know how many meals we would like to donate by Monday, September 17!  If you would like to donate a meal or give toward a meal for a family, please let Ashley Procter know TODAY!

MCC has a long-standing relationship with Food for the Hungry in Sucre, Bolivia. We are in the planning stages of our 2019 FH Mission Trip and would love to invite you to join us if you have a heart to serve and build relationships. The first informational meeting is this Sunday, September 16th after 2nd service in Youth Room. Food will be provided. Contact Jennifer Ward to learn more!
