Two Easter Sunday services planned
Please sign up now to help us ensure the health and wellbeing of congregation


Based on the results of our congregational survey, MC3 Church will offer two in-person Easter Sunday services on April 4—an early service beginning at 9 a.m. and the regular 10:30 a.m. service.

The online service will begin at 10:30 a.m., as usual.

To ensure we follow all safety and health protocols during the pandemic, please sign up for the service you plan to attend. Click on the link below to sign up now:


Please take a moment to sign up if you plan to join us for IN-PERSON worship or in the PARKING LOT at 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.

A word from Art
Pray on all occasions

When should we pray? Or how often? Should we pray three times a day? It was the custom of a pious Jewish person to pray three times a day. It sounds Biblical.

But wait! Psalm 119:164 says, “Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.”  So is it three? Is it seven? But real prayer . . . real conversation with God . . . is more than just checking boxes and making sure we’ve hit our quota for the day. This Sunday, we will drill down on how we can "Pray Continually."
Kingdom Kids
The Fourth Commandment
“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy."

In our competitive, achievement-oriented society, children, as well as adults, dash at breakneck speed from one task to the next. Before we know what has happened, we’re burned out. We snap at each other, become physically exhausted, and feel alienated from God. If this describes you, you’ve probably been ignoring God’s fourth commandment: Set aside a special day for God.

Our busy world bombards us with responsibilities. Our spheres of work and school accost us with draining duties and, sometimes, ungodly values and profane speech. Our darling children can have exhausting schedules full of sports, lessons, parties, church activities and homework. How we need a special day to re-energize our bodies and rekindle our spirits. God, in His kindness, commands us to jump off our dizzying merry-go-rounds into His arms. He recognizes our needs even when we refuse to. He’s waiting to renew our strength. Remember the Sabbath (our Sunday), and teach our children to do the same. 

In this week’s lesson—which will be emailed Friday and posted on the church website—we will talk about God giving us a day to refuel and remember Him.

Meanwhile, here are two fun songs for your children to learn:
