  • SNOW PANTS DRIVE ~ two more weeks!

    One way we can show the love of Jesus to our community is by SERVING OTHERS. Plus, kids feel more significant when you give them something significant to do. So, we are going to be adding more Community Service this year in UpStreet to help our kids see that they can do significant things to share the love of Christ. 


    During the months of September and October, the Cadets, GEMS, and UpStreet kids are doing a "Snow Pants Drive". 


    If you have any gently used snow pants that no longer fit anyone in your home, or if you would like to provide new snow pants, drop them off at the church during office hours (9:00am-2:30pm), bring them on a Wednesday night during Cadets and GEMS, or bring them on a Sunday morning to UpStreet. We'd like to deliver them to MCC and MCE before the snow flies for kids who may need them. 


    All offerings collected during September and October will also be used to purchase snow pants for the drive.

  • UPSTREET JR. - NURSERY & PRESCHOOL

    WEEK OF Oct. 24

    We don't have to teach a preschooler to show everyone how big they are. And, if we're all honest, there's something deep inside us the wants to do something big, too. We want to show the world that we can do things that matter -- things that really matter. Could it be that we were all made to do big things? We think so. God made us to do big things!

    Everything God created is unique and one of a kind, including people created in God's image. Every person is an original reflection of God in how they love, care for others, imagine, create and solve problems. To see how we can do this well, we should look to Jesus. Jesus showed us what it means to be created in God's image in the way He loved all people and helped people feel like they had value--no matter who they were or what they had done. We can reflect this as we discover who we're meant to be and live out the INDIVIDUALITY God gave us.
