Introduction

Our congregation is embarking on a three year process of redevelopment to discover and align ourselves around God's emerging vision for our congregation. To equip ourselves for this journey, our worship will help us explore the image of the church as a body, raised up in Christ to work together to serve the world around us.

Gracious Spirit, Heed Our Pleading

"Bodies"

FIG this Sunday will be about "Bodies" as we begin a worship focus on the image of the church as a body in 1 Corinthians and Ephesians.


Faith Integration Group (FIG) is an intergenerational conversation where we work to integrate our faith into our every day life. Our topics are drawn from the group and facilitated by Pastor Will.


We meet on Sunday's at 9:15 am in the Office building before church. There will be coffee and light refreshments and childcare is available for young children.

Care Ministry

Do you feel connected to God when you pray? Sometimes we find ourselves in ruts--always eating the same meals, doing the same activities. It's helpful to refresh all areas of our lives, including our prayer life.

Here are some ideas: try a different prayer posture, pray with a Gospel reading or one (or several) of the Psalms. Envision a conversation with Jesus. Say the Jesus prayer: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner." May we all find peace, comfort, hope and joy through our time spent in prayer.

 

Do you have ideas for enhancing our prayer life, connectedness, and care for others? Please email karenwhitefield@me.com or call (713) 446-8678.

Offering Counters Needed
MDLC is in need of several counters to count and total the offerings given each Sunday.  
This is done each Sunday following the service and should not require more than 30 minutes of your time. If you have interest in volunteering, click HERE to sign up.

Acolytes

Acolytes play an important role in worship. The word acolyte means "one who helps," and MDLC Acolytes do just that! These volunteers light and extinguish candles, collect the offering, and assist with communion and baptisms. Students in elementary school are encouraged to participate. Training is provided. To sign up for a specific worship service click HERE
