~ MCCC Return to Building Survey
As many of you know our MCCC Gathering Team has announced the return to the building on July 4th, 2021 and we would like to gather some information from the congregation. We’re inviting you to fill out a survey as you have done at other points in the pandemic. Like those, this survey is ANONYMOUS and the info will be used to help make decisions and transition the congregation into the building as comfortably and safely as possible. Many folks are working very hard to make this happen and we value your input greatly. Please continue to extend to one another, volunteers, and staff all the generosity, grace, and understanding you can muster as we start to make this transition.

~ Kids Weekend Meals Help Needed
Kids Weekend Meals is in need of another delivery driver! One of our routes has gotten so big that we need to split it.
Our procedure is to deliver on Thursday (every other week) at anytime that works for you. Since we can now get into the church (you will need to have or get a key) and load any frozen or refrigerated products into the bags. Specific instructions are given to you each and every bi weekly delivery.
We are seeking someone who can consistently handle this job, obviously allowing for appointments and vacations. If you are interested in this rewarding volunteer position; please call Liz Meeker at 330-283-4630 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
~ Coming Soon!
Please keep Sunday, July 4th at the top of your calendar! We are excited to announce that July 4th will be a great day of celebration not only for “Independence Day”, but also because MCCC will be opening back up for worship inside the church!
New guidelines say that vaccinated people will no longer need masks inside. Masks are of course optional for those who are already vaccinated. If you have any questions, please contact Jon Secaur, Gathering Team Chair, at: email@example.com .
~ Volunteers Needed for Children’s Moment
Ally (Hurd) Bozeka is in need of a handful of volunteers to do the Children’s Moment during church on the following dates: June 20, July 4, July 11, and August 1. If you are interested, please reach out to Ally at 330-802-0099 or firstname.lastname@example.org
~ Note from the Secretary
I am excited that after 15 months of not having events going on at our church, we are finally beginning to open things up and start focusing on returning to “normal”. That means having events to include not only at MCCC, but also within our community. If any of you know of MCCC or community events that should be publicized in our weekly newsletter, please send the information to me by Saturday evening at email@example.com. Thanks to all for your help! Sandi Kossick
