Dear <<First Name>>,

Come to me all you who are weary and are carrying heavy burdens,
I will give you rest.” — Matthew 11:28

For 2019, our Lenten Sermon Series is entitled, “Reconnecting with an Unhurried God.” In our busy world, God invites us to slow down. As part of that invitation, everyone is invited to sign up to receive a daily mediation/reflection email to help you focus your spiritual life during Lent.

MCC of Greater Saint Louis, MCC Omaha, and Pikes Peak MCC (Colorado Springs) are partnering to do this series and these reflections, so it is also a wonderful opportunity to connect with other MCC folks! 

Simply click to sign up.

Peace, 
Spring Ahead!

You Should Meet My Son! 2
I Do... ?

An Independent Film by Keith Hartman, Writer/Director/Producer
 
A Sequel to the award winning 2010 Film, You Should Meet My Son!, You Should Meet My Son 2!: I Do, introduces a new character, a fundamentalist mother who is determined to stop her gay son’s wedding. However, her plans go awry when she accidentally befriends his fiancé and comes to accept her gay son and his soon-to-be husband. The movie uses humor to help convey its positive message. Of note, the wedding scene was filmed at an MCC church in Los Angeles.  Watch the trailer.
Easter Lilies

If you would like to honor or remember someone with an Easter lily, please sign up on the back table in the sanctuary.  Each person of honor or remembrance will have their name printed in our Easter Sunday bulletin and lilies can be taken home after service.  The flowers are $15 each; all payments must be made in advance
by April 7th.
