December 14, 2020
Please take a moment now to sign up if you plan to join us for IN-PERSON worship or in the PARKING LOT of our new worship hall, located at 2150 Paxton Dr., Lilburn, Georgia, 30047. We'll also be ONLINE at 10:30 a.m. for those who prefer to worship at home.

If you plan to attend INSIDE or in the PARKING LOT, please SIGN UP NOW. Nobody likes to sign up to attend church, but it's important during this pandemic to help us provide a safe environment.
And while we're at it . . .
A word about masks
We know, we know! It can be tough to wear face masks when you're indoors.

This is a friendly reminder to keep your face mask on at all times when worshipping inside the MC3 Church event hall.

Please refrain from pushing your mask down off your nose during the worship service. It needs to cover your mouth and nose at all times.

Remember, we want to do everything possible to protect the health of ourselves and each other during the worship hour.
A word from Art
Discover the hope found in God's amazing grace
Sermon Title: Hope of a New Life
Scripture: Luke 2:16-20

We all enjoy something New. I think this was the allure of receiving gifts at Christmas when I was a child. And if I'm honest, that excitement is still there. Jesus came that we might have New Life. Jesus said in John 10:10, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." This is the hope that Jesus brings us. New life for today and for all eternity. Join us Sunday as we look forward to the hope of new life.
Join us for tonight and Tuesday night's prayer services
Jesus’ birth announced to the shepherds
Luke 2:8-18

Shepherds. They were poor, humble, smelly creatures, yet central to the Christmas story. The message in this week’s children’s lesson is that God truly used the shepherds and he can truly use you, too.

God sent multitudes of angels to announce the birth of His Son to the shepherds and they in turn went to Bethlehem to see and worship the baby born in a stable. It’s amazing when we consider that the Little One, whom the shepherds went to see in Bethlehem, is now the sacrifice for our sins.

Our lesson for Sunday will focus on how the shepherds worshiped, how they told others, and when they went to the temple for sacrificing the sheep. Perhaps we should use their example and tell, tell, tell others who do not know Him!
Happy birthday, Josey
MC3 Kingdom Kid Josey Stills celebrated turning six this past weekend with a drive-through birthday party.
