5-Week Anniversary Worship Series Starts this Sunday!
This five-week worship series loosely follows the five decades of MCC history. We explore the ideas, movements, and topics that have created our identity: Open Table, Love, Justice, Hope, and Faith. In this resource kit, you will find more readings, prayers, and ideas than can possibly be used each week. Our hope is that you review these materials and create a worship service that fits your context.
The theme for this week is: Open Table! Click here for resources including prayers, songs, readings, communion liturgy and photos for your bulletin or projection during worship. This week’s resources also include two liturgies for a dinner church style worship service provided by Open Table Dinner Church. Don’t forget to check out the “Series Resource” folder for resources, like music and PowerPoint Slides, that can be used throughout the series.
Keep the Celebration Going!
Register for General Conference and encourage your congregation to do so too! This video is a perfect one to use in your weekly announcements as it features fun photos from throughout our history!
