LICS Thrift Store
MCC is committed to serve in the Thrift Store at Lexington Interfaith Community Services on the 1st Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.. There are numerous ways to serve. We clean the store, straighten the aisles, staff the cash register, and greet the customers. We’d love for you to join us in this ministry to the community. If you are interested in helping, please sign up in the foyer next to the water cooler or call the church office. THIS Saturday, however, the LICS Thrift Store is closed due to the 4th of July holiday.
Sunday, July 6th
At 9:30 AM, we have Bible Study and Sunday School for all ages. Our children from new-borns through 5th grade meet in the education wing of the Main Building (go in through the side door). Enthusiastic and prepared teachers look forward to teaching your children. Our youth in Grades 6-12 meet in their Sunday School class which is also off of the education hallway.
We have two adult Sunday School classes. One meets in the Main Building and is currently doing a verse by verse study of the book of Colossians. A second class meets in the Fellowship Hall and is doing a DVD and book study, “gods at War,” by Kyle Idleman.
At 10:30 AM, adults meet in the Worship Center to sing praises to God, share in the Lord’s Supper, and study God’s word together. Children from infants through 5 years old meet in the education wing for a time of crafts and games. Children in Grades 1-5 meet in the Worship Center for the first half of the worship service. During the Message time, they join the younger children in the education wing for an age-appropriate lesson time of their own.
Messages: Viral Faith
The word viral has taken on new meaning in recent years. When I was a kid, about the only time that you’d hear the word viral was when someone got a terrible disease. But, then, things changed. We now hear about “viral videos,” videos that spread rapidly over the Internet.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a “viral faith?” This would be a faith which would spread rapidly through a neighborhood, a community, even the world.
When you read the first two chapters of Philippians, you can’t help but notice words like joy and love that flow from Paul’s pen. This is the kind of faith that we need to have if our faith is going to “go viral.” Come join us in May and June as we focus on what it means to have a “Viral Faith.”
We invite all YOUTH in Grades 6-12 to meet at 4:00 p. m. in our youth group, Fusion! Sage Moody and Kim Pollard will lead the group in a time of fun, fellowship, and study.
