THIS WEEK @ MC3
December 16, 2019
Sermon Title: This Changes Me
Scripture:   Luke 2:8-14

This Sunday, we will focus on the message that the angel gave to the shepherds on the night Jesus was born. In Luke 2:10-11, the angel says, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you." Did you catch what the angel said? The birth of Jesus is good news for "all people" because a Savior has been born to me . Jesus came into the world so that He might change me (and you) . . . so that He might save me (and you). Join us as we look at the impact Jesus has made on all of us.

Student Ministry embarking on journey to read the Bible in one year
From Will Tyler, Student Minister

How incredible would it be if every one of our students read through entire Bible? Lofty goal, I know!

Starting in January, we will be begin that journey with the help of The Bible Study: Youth Edition . This is a 90-day study of the Bible and how it relates to them. We will read through each New Testament book and go through an overview of each Old Testament book. Each Sunday morning at 9:30, we will go over together what we read the previous week! (About 20 minutes of reading a day)

On Jan. 5th, we will kick things off by going through the first reading together (Need the book by this date).

The greatest Christmas gift you could get me this year is to buy this book for your student LOL! Buy the book here:  The Bible Study
Change of time for Dec. 29 worship service
MC3 Church's last worship service of 2019 will be held at 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 29, in the Parkview High School theater.
