Midweek Update: 3rd Sunday after Pentecost

Dear friends in Christ,

I hope you’re all staying dry this rainy day. Here are a few updates about things going on with MCC:

Sundaes on Sunday: 6/26 from 5:30-7

Sundaes on Sunday return this Sunday from 5:30-7pm. We appreciated seeing a number of you last Sunday for ice cream, and this coming Sunday is your last chance this summer to get ice cream Sundaes with homemade caramel sauce and hot fudge. Sundaes are $3. I’ve also attached the flyer.

Vacation Bible School Begins Monday!

Next week we’re looking forward to the return of Vacation bible School here at MCC! Valerie and our team of volunteers are going to be hard at work this weekend decorating and getting everything ready, so we’ll get a chance on Sunday to enjoy the decorations! Thank you in advance to all our volunteers and everyone who is signed up to come!

Worship on 6/19

This past Sunday, Dave and Donna, our music staff, had a much deserved Sunday off, and we had music from Austin, Kalman, and Dave Z. Austin did a very professional job leading our hymns and service music, and Dave and Kalman took care of the offertory music. Thank you to Austin, Dave, and Kalman!

General Comments

On Monday evening there was a lovely sunset here on the green, and I’ve attached a few pictures.

This Sunday we’re continuing in a sermon series on Joseph from the book of Genesis. Last week we heard about how Joseph was his father’s favorite son, so he was given a special coat, which made his older brothers incredibly jealous. This Sunday, we’ll be looking at where Joseph’s brothers get so jealous of him that they actually sell Joseph into slavery in Egypt. If you want to continue fallowing along with the story told via the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, this song covers the lesson we’ll be reading on Sunday: https://youtu.be/tzfjcPciDao

Midweek Update: 2nd Sunday After Pentecost

Dear friends in Christ,

I hope you’re all doing well this week. I wanted to make sure you’re all aware the worship on Sundays is going to remain at 10am. Additionally, Sunday School is on recess for the summer months. There is still nursery care available for children 6 and under. In addition to that, there are a few upcoming things:

Sundaes on Sunday is Back: June 19th and June 26th

Sundaes on Sunday returns this summer for a limited time only on June 19th and 26th from 5:30-7 at the church. Sundaes are $3. I’ve attached the flyer for more details. Sundaes on Sunday is a wonderful time for fellowship and some great homemade salted caramel sauce and hot fudge! I’m looking forward to getting my ice cream this Sunday.

Celebration Sunday: Thank You!

I want to thank Greg and Kelly E. and our other volunteers who did the legwork and setup/cleanup for our (indoor) picnic last Sunday. Everything went really well, and it was wonderful to have a meal all together.

And, as I said on Sunday, thank you again to all our volunteers who make this community of faith what it is through all the time, talent, and treasure you put in.

Additionally, the music was particularly lovely on Sunday.

Strawberry Festival Update

The initial calculations have been done, and Strawberry Festival has raised at least $1319.45. I know we sold some more biscuits and strawberries this past Sunday, so the final total is a bit more than that. Thank you again for everyone who volunteered and who bought shortcake. It was wonderful evening.

On Friday evening, there was a lovely sunset, and I’ve attached a picture of that.

This Summer for worship, I’m doing a sermon series on Joseph from the book of Genesis. The Joseph story is one of my favorite parts of scripture because I played in the pit orchestra when my high school did a production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” So, the story always brings up a lot of fond memories of that show. Plus, I’m fairly certain I’ve still got nearly all the lyrics to the show memorized after listening to the CD so much to help learn my part. This Sunday we’re going to be looking at the sibling rivalry between Joseph and his brothers. And if you’re in a musical mood, this is the song from the musical that covers the lesson we’ll be reading: https://youtu.be/KqhPG9MdL4c (I’m pretty sure this is the cast/orchestration that was on the bootleg CD the pit and cast were given in high school to learn our parts.)

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
