Announcements

Potluck this Sunday, January 25th

Come one, come all, and join us in fellowship around the tables after our worship service! We're having a potluck this Sunday, and all are invited. We're asking those with surnames A-K to bring main dishes and those with surnames L-Z to bring salads or buns (they can be dropped off in the church kitchen with any instructions on Sunday morning). But even if you can only bring yourself, we'd still love to see you there.

Young Adult Retreat!

The MCBC Young Adult Retreat at Camp Squeah is Feb. 6-8th (Friday evening to Sunday Lunch), and this year's theme is on Sabbath. The cost is on a sliding scale from $115-$100, and all young adults are invited to get away and learn what real rest is. Contact Tim Larson at Camp Squeah to register (tim.larson@squeah.com). This is coming up quick, so register now!

Prayers in the New Year (Jan. 7th)

Happy New Year! As we dedicate ourselves to God in 2015, we will be holding two times of prayer on Wednesday January 7th.

German Prayer Meeting: 10am in the church basement.
Prayer and Communion: 7:30pm in the church basement. Held in English, although free prayers in German, Spanish, or any other language are welcome.

Please join us as we seek to be faithful to our God in this new year!
