MCCC Weekly Events – Dec. 13-19, 2021
What a glorious day today! Sunshine always makes everything better . . . even if it’s on the chilly side! Hope you were able to make some time today to reflect on God’s beauty.
Below you will find our Weekly Calendar of Events from 12-13 to 12/19/21.
- Please note that it is not too late to turn in your answers to the Worship Team question for this month!

- AND the children’s annual Christmas Pageant will also be this Sunday, during worship. Please note the changes for the pageant in the calendar. If your children are interested in participating in the pageant, you will need to get in touch with Ally Bozeka ASAP!
Also keep in mind that our Blue Christmas Service is Monday, 12/20/21 at 7pm. This service gives a safe space for any grief or sadness many of us may be experiencing during the holidays. The service will also be live streamed so keep an eye out for the YouTube link in the near future.
The TV coverage today continues to highlight the massive destruction left behind by the recent tornado(s). To think that this path extended 128 miles through several states is mind boggling. In the midst of all this devastation, World News Tonight also focused on a man who was trapped on the lowest level of a building under steel and concrete. He thought he might not make it out. His co-workers kept talking to him to help keep him calm and determine his location, and eventually, by the grace of God, he was rescued. He currently remains in the hospital, and today with assistance, he was able to stand for the first time since the building collapsed. It is times like these when people we may not even know, reach out to make a difference in someone’s life – and in this case – to help save a life. It is heartwarming to hear of these “good samaritans”, reaching out, through word or deed, helping someone else in need. May weALL strive to be a “good samaritan” not just in the midst of crises, but in everyday life. Someone YOU know needs your help today. Whether you offer a kind word, a smile, a phone call, a listening ear, a card in the mail, a warm meal, or reassurance that you are thinking about them and that you care – these things are all equally important. May we all take a few moments out of each day to be a “good samaritan’ to someone in need!
Blessings to all, Sandi
