It is a central component of our hope in Christ that we can be aware - all the time and in many ways - that God is with us. By the presence of the Holy Spirit, “Christ dwells in our hearts through faith.” Growing in our ability to sense this presence is an exciting endeavor and results in us experiencing the abundant Life that Jesus offered. Join us as we explore how to be more aware!
Digging In- Our Prayer for MCC: An in-depth look at Ephesians 3:16-19
Everything in our lives has been thrown for a loop. Nothing is as used to be. Or so it seems. Even how we walk with God and live out our core faith has been affected. But as we live through - and then past - the Covid crisis (and the crises it creates), we will want to make sure we have not forgotten who and what we really are. Join us as we walk together through Paul’s prayer for the Ephesian church, which is our prayer for you.
We give gifts at Christmas in honor and in celebration of the greatest gift: That Jesus, God himself in human form, has come into the world to bring salvation. Join us for this Advent season (the four Sundays leading up to Christmas) as we reflect on his giving - and our receiving -The Gift.
The Ugly Within
So let’s be real. We do pretty well living as God’s people when life is smooth sailing. But in times of stress (um, global pandemics, economic difficulty, partisan political races) even we who are believers in Jesus can find our sin leaking out all over the place. It’s true that we are a forgiven people who have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit, but our flesh still puts up a pretty good fight. What do we do with all the junk that comes out from within us? How do we find insight, hope and healing from Jesus? Join us on Sundays as we look honestly at the ugly within.
REFRESH: Updating our rhythms for a thriving faith
The refresh button on our computers might be our favorite part of the online experience. We can’t wait to see what new information will impact the site we are exploring or the document in front of us. Similarly, our world, our connections, and our spiritual journey need to be refreshed as we experience new realities.
Summer in the Scriptures: 1 Peter
MCC spends the summer months diving into the scriptures. Join us as we unpack 1 Peter written to the scattered, persecuted church. This small book continues to encourage, challenge, and equip us for life in our world today.
Digging In: An in-depth look at Romans 5:1-5
As we come out of Lent, through Passion Week and Easter Sunday, we are comforted with the good news that the tomb has remained empty. Jesus, our risen savior, is alive and we walk in new kind of life because he lives. Conceptually this sounds wonderful, but does our everyday experience (especially these days) line up with such a victorious picture? What is the nature of our post-Easter life? Join us as we walk together through five meaty verses in the book of Romans which address some of our most honest questions about living as Christians.
Our ways of connecting are being altered. The structures of our lives are having to morph. And our rhythms are being totally disrupted. All the more reason why we cannot "give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing." (Heb. 10:24) So since God is still God, and the church is still the church, we are meeting virtually each Sunday to worship and hear from the word of God.
