This Sunday is Homecoming!

Ellen shares a reminder that this weekend is our Homecoming celebration!

Homecoming is the start of Faith Formation for the year, a welcome back to our members who have been away this summer, and a time to celebrate all the things that we share together. 

Please look at the above flyer and make plans to join us this Sunday, September 10th. After a special service, we will take a commemorative photo on the front steps of the church, organize activities for the kids (don’t forget to bring some thing you would like to tie-dye), listen to our resident DJ spin some tunes and enjoy some special food!

Homecoming is always “coming home to the special places in your heart“. We look forward to welcoming you home. 💜

Our Outdoor Chapel is back!

I am happy to report that the renovation of our outdoor chapel has been completed by Eagle Scout candidate Scott Dean and his fellow Scouts from Troop 5, MCC’s chartered Boy Scout troop.  

The benches, lectern and cross were replaced with new, pressure-treated wood, solar–powered ground lights were installed to illuminate the cross at night, and planter boxes were added that will enable us to beautify the chapel area with flowers and other plantings. I have attached some photos.

The work was performed at no cost to MCC, which is typical for an Eagle Scout project. Scott has been fundraising to cover the cost of the building materials, which was around $750.

Please consider making a contribution of any amount to help the church contribute to the cost of materials.  Any excess funds will be used to maintain the outdoor chapel.

Thank you all in advance for your generosity.
