Project Backpack

Since we talk about providing backpacks of food for kids at Clay Elementary so often, it is easy to let our needs around it go in one ear and out the other.  Still, every week, there are kids who literally depend on us to supply the food they have to eat over the weekend.  What seems routine to us is vital to them.  Please help us focus during the month of April on stocking up with plenty of food OR giving money to allow us to buy food.  Go by the Outreach Table in the Engage Room and find out more details as to how you can help in this vital ministry.

This series invites us all to join Christ in prayer: “Pray With Me.”

As we learn and experience more about The Lord's Prayer in worship, this program will be an additional way to engage in the practice of prayer and reflection each day. This will be done online so all you have to do is commit to it and have a phone or computer handy. Try daily prayer for these 7 weeks and see what a difference it makes in your life.

Seeing Clearly
Feb

Seeing Clearly

Join us as we do a book study on  Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes: Removing Cultural Blinders to Better Understand the Bible to help us see the Bible more clearly.

What was clear to the original readers of Scripture is not always clear to us. Because of the cultural distance between the biblical world and our contemporary setting, we often bring modern Western biases to the text. For example:

  • When Western readers hear Paul exhorting women to "dress modestly," we automatically think in terms of sexual modesty. But most women in that culture would never wear racy clothing. The context suggests that Paul is likely more concerned about economic modesty--that Christian women not flaunt their wealth through expensive clothes, braided hair and gold jewelry.
  • Some readers might assume that Moses married "below himself" because his wife was a dark-skinned Cushite. Actually, Hebrews were the slave race, not the Cushites, who were highly respected. Aaron and Miriam probably thought Moses was being presumptuous by marrying "above himself."
  • Western individualism leads us to assume that Mary and Joseph traveled alone to Bethlehem. What went without saying was that they were likely accompanied by a large entourage of extended family.

Biblical scholars Brandon O'Brien and Randy Richards shed light on the ways that Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible. They identify nine key areas where modern Westerners have significantly different assumptions about what might be going on in a text. Learn to read Scripture as a member of the global body of Christ.

The cost is $20, which includes the book.

Spiritual Location Gatherings in February

Every single day we are bombarded with bad news. Natural disasters, mass killings, racial violence, public hatred, and much more crowd our senses and challenge our soul. It is little wonder that people speak of “checking out,” “numbing out,” or just simply “shutting down.”  Still, as people of faith, we are called to stay awake through it all. We are challenged to trust God even when we are overwhelmed by complicated emotions. We are invited to notice carefully how we feel, how we act and how we react so that we can be a force for good and not for evil.

In order to be awake—to know ourselves, our world and our God deeply—we must take a moment to pause, settle, breathe, and consider where the Spirit lives in the midst of all these complex experiences.

This February, we will come together in homes and coffee shops to strengthen our spiritual lives and our bonds to each other.  Follow the link below for the schedule of Spiritual Location Gatherings coming in February!

Be Still and know that I am God.”  Psalm 46:10

January Sermon Series: Embracing the Heart of Jesus

Join us for the January Sermon Series , Embracing the Heart of Jesus, beginning on Sunday, January 8 at 10:30am at MCCGSL.

This January we will explore the emotional side of Jesus. Many of us were taught negative lessons about emotions and feelings. We were told not to cry; we were told that it didn’t matter how we felt. Or, we just got the message subtly that feelings were the same as weakness. In this series, we want to acknowledge that Jesus was fully human and experienced every kind of feeling which shows us that emotions are not bad. Come and explore what you can learn about living your best life by following Jesus’s example around living authentically and emotionally open.

Join us on Wednesdays from January 17 to January 31 at 6:30pm for a book study on The Passionate Jesus.

A fresh and moving portrait of Jesus as a model for how to live more authentic, honest and meaningful lives by fully experiencing our emotions in the love of God. While we are often introduced to a Jesus who didn't have emotions, a closer look at scripture reveals a very different portrait. You will love getting to know Jesus this way!

Join us on Thursday, December 21 at 7pm at MCCGSL for the Blue Christmas Service.

This year we will hold our annual Blue Christmas Service on the longest night of the year, Winter Solstice. This non-traditional holiday service is especially for those who are stressed, hurting, lonely, or grieving during the holiday season. This unique service, like all our services, is open to the public.
