Kid's Instructional Soccer LeagueFrom September 8th-September 29th, MCC will again be having it's instructional soccer league for kids 4 years old through 3rd grade. Registration cost for the first child in your family is $25 and then only $10 for each additional child. All games are played on Saturday mornings on our big open field on the east side of our building.
You can register your child online by clicking here and submitting the registration form. You can also go ahead and pay for all the registration fees immediately through the Paypal link at the bottom of that page.

Chick-fil-A Appreciation DayMake sure you show appreciation to our local Chick-fil-A at Jefferson Point in Fort Wayne on Wednesday. August 1st has been declared "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" across the nation due to the criticism they have recently faced for their stand and support of the biblical definition of marriage.
The company's president, Dan Cathy, said: "We are very much supportive of the family - the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that."
Mike Huckabee, former Republican presidential candidate, initiated this nationwide campaign saying: "Let's affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick-fil-A on Wednesday, August 1."

Important NewsFirst Impressions Ministry Help
For many, one of the first things you do when you walk through our doors on Sunday morning is go to one of our coffee stations and get your morning coffee. For several years Cheryl White, with help from some other volunteers, have made sure you are greeted with a hot cup of coffee. But after several years of service, Cheryl is stepping away from this ministry at the end of August. Cheryl, we want to thank you for your servants heart. You have done an awesome job! We are looking for someone to take over this ministry, so if you would be interested, please contact Mike Duggan by clicking here or by contacting the church office.
