MCC Resources
Lord Jesus,

you are the vine and we are the branches.

Help us to understand what this means for our lives.

We are constantly striving to gain or fix something or to look and be a certain way.

Help us to make sure that we stay connected to you and that the works we do are actually the ones that we have been assigned to do. If we could just step into those works and lose some of those complexities of our lives that are best left with you anyway.

Lord Jesus have mercy.

Holy Spirit, fill us and guide us.

Grant us that peace that passes all our understanding.

In Jesus` beautiful and mighty name.

Amen.

Community Communion Breakfast

Join us in the Agape' parking lot for our 5th Sunday Communion Breakfast.
We will begin gathering at 10:00AM and ask that you observe the following guidelines:

1) Please leave one parking space in between the cars.
2) Please wear your mask if you leave your parking spot to go visiting.
3) Please practice 6' social distancing...no hugging!
4) Please bring your own chair(s) and please keep them in your parking space.
5) Bring your favorite breakfast food for our time of communion or we will provide you a personal communion kit upon request.

We will include a Time of Offering during our gathering for anyone who would like to give their gifts in person; Cassy will be asking you for your quarters.
Gifts through Zelle or Simple Give are welcome and appreciated!

We fully expect this to be a wonderful time of gathering. We hope, if WiFi cooperates, to visit all the cars and allow everyone an opportunity to say hi to our Facebook Community.

See you live and in person from the Agape' MCC Parking Lot Sunday!!!
