Sunday School Classes have started. Children should go directly upstairs upon arrival for Sunday School each week. The only exception is the fourth Sunday of the month, when they stay in the sanctuary for part of the worship service and the Good News Mystery Box.


New Sermon Series based on the Apostles’ Creed, the oldest (150 AD) and the most widely accepted Christian statement of faith. 


Listen to Sermons on-line: Go to and click on “Pastoral Ministry” “Sermons”. If a sermon was a blessing to you, share it with a friend.


Volunteers needed for new MCC Tech Team:  Thanks to a generous gift from member Sonny Chavarie we will be installing a sound board in the balcony.  This will enable all microphones and instruments to be balanced for the most effective sound.  Adult and teen volunteers are needed to run the board.  Training will be provided.  Use the white pew card to sign-up.


Alpha Course Begins:  The Alpha Course and the Beta Bible Study begin this Thursday with supper downstairs at 6:30.  It’s not too late to sign on!  See Alec Rogers or Kathy Daniel if you are interested in Alpha, and see Pastor Jack if you have taken Alpha and are interested in Beta.


Applefest Parade, Public Supper & Concert - September 27; The public supper is from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. and the concert by “Heavenly Sound” will begin around 6:30 p.m. following the supper in the sanctuary. The free concert will be “Give Me That Old Time Religion”.  A “free will donation” plate will be available.
