Looking for something meaningful?
Come join in 3Ms Class at 9 am each Sunday. We are studying The Way: Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus by Adam Hamilton and then putting what we learn into practice right away:
This month we are following Jesus into the world by: 1) collecting soup for the food pantry; 2) delivering fudge and singing valentines to 22 shut-ins; 3) preparing gift bags for our local women’s shelter; and 4) providing micro loans through KIVA! <!–split–>
Next month we will reach out to New Kingdom Trail Riders, the Nest, and the Learning Center.
We also are being inspired by faith talks from: Tom Lagomarcino, Doris Lee, Sam Ade, Venture Crew members: Erica Delp and Devan Terry, Michael Callahan, Susan Serre, and representatives of the MHS Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Closet2Closet, and the Nest.
Dan and Deb Haughey will be leading us in a Love Feast in February and in March we will have a Passover Seder meal.
Come join the journey – everyone is welcome!

“Lessons and Carols”
Advent Fair – Journey to Bethlehem
You are invited to an Advent Fair – A Night in Bethlehem. The town’s merchants will delight you with fun, food, and fellowship. Those attending can choose to make hammers with the carpenters, soup for the homeless, sample food of the times, and much more.
Summer is gone, the days are flying by and now we are already in the fall season. The leaves will soon be changing colors to beautiful orange, brown and gold. And then they will fall and the time will change – “fall back and spring ahead!” It will become darker outside earlier. The children are getting acclimated to school and making new friendships as well as keeping up with existing ones. It is so nice to hear the laughter and yes, sometimes the cries, from the children whose parents are in the ESL or GED classrooms. <!–split–>
As I sit here at my desk and try to decide what I am going to write about for this month’s newsletter I find my mind meditating on “Followers of Jesus Christ.” Followers of Jesus today want their faith in Jesus Christ to make a difference… within themselves and within their community. There is an inward mission and an outward mission. The inward must precede the outward mission or the outward mission will have no spiritual power to make a difference. The outward mission must follow the inward mission or the inward mission is suspect.
We first must know Christ and then make Christ known. Each of us is called to be on mission daily, inward and outwardly. I leave you with this, “Are we doing what we have been called to do…”
Matthew 4:19 And he saideth unto them “follow me and I will make you fishers of people.”
