Uganda Mission Trip Postponed

Due to governmentally imposed travel restrictions and the government of Uganda intending to quarantine travelers from the USA, our planned mission trip to Uganda has been postponed. Hope 4 Kids has a trip scheduled for November. We are welcome to fold into that trip. So unless something else unforeseen happens our MLC team will be going to Uganda in November. Thank you for all of your prayers and donations. The generosity of the congregation has been incredible and all of your gifts will reach Uganda. With the new date of travel it is not too late for more to join us.

2020 Puerto Rico Trip Canceled / Postponed

Updated: March 13, 2020:

Our 2020 Puerto Rico Mission Trip has been cancelled/postponed due to the needed widespread response of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

We know that God’s mission and our mission together will continue! This is not the first challenge we have faced in this journey. It will not be the last challenge, and we know God will be with us during our wilderness wanderings.

Our spring break next year is March 26 – April 5, 2021 (this is also Holy Week). We are looking ahead! It is our hope that all 28 members on our current team could participate in this potential rescheduled time. We look to build upon what we started together. When we get through this together, and we will refocus on how we can responsibly respond and grow as the body of Christ.

From the music, the movies, the games, the speakers, and club – all with laughter to tears – Summer Festival Camp really has something for everybody.

Jesus Can't Be Stopped

March 15, 2020 | Pastor Kelli Schmit

God hears their fears and complaining, and grants them the gift of life – water that inexplicably comes gushing forth from a rock.  Through this act God not only quenches their thirst and sustains their life, God reveals that God is always with them no matter where they go.  God’s presence and care for them does not evaporate, God’s compassion does not run dry, and God will be with them and hold them when they are scared and don’t know what will happen one moment to the next.

Advent Time

December 1, 2019, Pastor Tim Dean

This is Advent time: living a caught-up life, caught up in God’s story, rather than putting off life into a future we can’t predict. Advent gives us the breathing room, the space, the opportunity, to live each day in God’s present.
