Deacon(s) On Call:

Our deacon team is beginning a new service to the congregation.
While we have ongoing deacon assignments for our senior citizens and those
with special needs, this “on call” service is available to the whole congregation.

Consider this as a supplement and support to the pastoral care that our Pastor provides.
If you have a crisis, or compelling need, know that one of the deacons will be on call.

  • November 4th -- "Prophetic Generosity"     Worship Theme: The story of the widow who gives all she has is a profound testimony of giving.  But is there more that Jesus would have us see beyond her remarkable commitment?  Is she the evidence of her community’s real spirit of generosity, or its lack?  As we explore this text, let us consider what one such as she reveals about the faith of those around her!      Scripture Texts: Psalm 119:1-8, Mark 12:38-44, Deuteronomy 6:1-9

  • November 11th -- "Abundant Life in Jesus" [Fall Youth] (Combined Service) Worship Theme: The theme for National Junior High Sunday is “Abundant Life in Jesus” based on John 10:10.  Our full youth group will be leading us in our combined worship in the Fellowship Hall for this service.      Scripture Texts: John 10:10, et al.

  • November 18th -- "Provoked for Good" Worship Theme:  Ever been provoked?  While we usually think of that word in terms of things that irritate us, at the heart of this word is the power to get us to “DO something”.  Can you imagine that we can be provoked for good?  For love?  For Jesus’ sake?      Scripture Texts: Hebrews 10:19-25; I Samuel 1:4-20

  • November 25th -- "A Different Kind of King" Worship Theme: Just before Advent, it may seem strange to consider a text near the end of the gospel story, with Jesus before Pilate.  In some ways, it’s easier for us to be caught up in the birth stories that prophetically describe Jesus as king of his people.  But this morning’s text reminds us that this is no ordinary king or kingdom we serve.  He is a king worth waiting for! Scripture Texts:  John 18:33-37; Revelation 1:4b-8

  • UPCOMING MCOB HOLIDAY OPPORTUNITIES SCARF SALE TABLE   It's that time of year again!  We will have the Scarf Sale Table in the back gathering area beginning November 8th.  With this fundraiser, you will be "double donating" since the proceeds of the items sold will be used to purchase Giant Gift Cards from the MCOB Youth and then given to "Operation Wildcat" for their card giveaway to needy families this Christmas.  Please help by purchasing scarves for gifts so we in turn can help others.  Let's help our neighbors have a wonderful Christmas again this year.      SOCK & MITTEN TREE   We will again have the Sock & Mitten Tree in the back gathering area.  The tree will be set up on Wednesday, November 14th ...

  • Youth Sunday On November 25th, our youth will be the Sunday Greeters. They will also be selling Giant Cards and some interesting items as part of their fundraising. The Youth will have more visible presence in the various activities. During NYC, the staff asked the youth how they can they serve in the church. Some of the ideas were to be Greeters, Sign-up as Worship leader, and babysitting during services. If you have any ideas, please feel free to contact Colin S. or Phyllis P.
