THIS WEEK @ MC3
February 1, 2021
FOOTBALL Sunday coming this SUNDAY - Who have you invited?
We're super excited about Football Sunday, coming this Sunday!!

MC3's worship service will showcase the faith journeys of current NFL players who are using their prowess on the football field to glorify Jesus. Whether you join us online or in person, we hope you’ll use this opportunity to invite someone to share the experience.

At the heart of it all, we’re looking to lead people into a relationship with Christ.

Following the worship service, we’ll be providing boxed lunches (hamburgers, hot dogs and other goodies) in the parking lot behind our worship center at 2150 Paxton Dr. in Lilburn. Even if you join us online, we encourage you to drive by and pick up a boxed lunch.

We look forward to worshiping with you on Super Bowl Sunday!

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.

Jesus calls his disciples

Our emphasis this week will be about obedience of the disciples and their acceptance when Jesus called each of them to follow Him. There is no record that they postponed or analyzed their acceptance. They simply left all they had and followed Him.
 
Perhaps this lesson is also for us as adults. So often we ‘overthink’ things. We do have to use the mind our wonderful Creator gave us; and it is good to respond with our hearts as well. Sometimes, it is a tough call; but when we know for sure it is Jesus calling, we should be prepared to say “Yes!”
 
For most every lesson, I can find “You Tube” video of real actors professionally depicting the lessons. I prefer using these brief illustrations and scenes because real people act out these stories rather than an animated one. I want our darling children to know that Jesus was a real person and not a cartoon character or tomato. The scenes are usually from one to two or sometimes five minutes. The younger children do respond to the cartoons, but I save those for other situations. As they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words!”
New C-Groups to tackle Reopening Christianity
In this time of great uncertainty in our world, MC3’s Wednesday night C-Groups are launching “Reopening Christianity,” a small group study that will explore five questions every Christian must answer.

Both C-Groups begin at 7 p.m. on ZOOM. They are hosted by Art Stansberry and Jim Barber, respectively.
