Mineral Ridge Church of Christ December 4, 2020 Dear Friends of MRCC: We’ve seen some amazing things happen since then and God has blessed our church through our fb studies and congregational efforts to keep in touch with each other through many different forms of communication. The sanctuary is set for social distancing and we ask if you do come inside...please wear your mask at all times if you are medically able. For those who wish to drive in and tune into FM 99.9 you can still do that. You can also view us on FB on the pastors personal page at 10:30.
Tuesday - Wednesday. Just go to my facebook page and join us for our daily devotions/study. We start at 11:30 and are usually finished by Noon.
We are all set up and if you have an instruction sheet you can get started. If you need one I can either give it you personally or e-mail one. Get started today!
Now you can give your offering electronically. We pay our bills online and do most things online today. It's easy, flexible and secure. See Pastor for details
We will keep you posted on when Change Brigade will resume.
We have purchased a new system that will allow anyone with hearing loss to enjoy the service. If you have a smart phone all you need is to bring it in the church with you. We are pleased to make this available to you. We can also use this in the nursery and through out the building. Please ask us about this when we return to church.
Experts aren't always what they claim to be. A shepherd was herding his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of the dust cloud towards him. The driver, a young man in a Broni suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the shepherd... "If I tell you exactly how many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one?" The shepherd looked at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looked at his peacefully grazing flock and calmly answered "sure". The yuppie parked his car, whipped out his IBM ThinkPad and connected it to a cell phone, then he surfed to a NASA page on the internet where he called up a GPS satellite navigation system, scanned the area, and then opened up a database and an Excel spreadsheet with complex formulas. He sent an email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, received a response. Finally, he prints out a 130-page report on his miniaturized printer then turns to the shepherd and says, "You have
You know I was thinking today as I read several FB posts about people and their best friends about what we really think of our best friends. Would we let our best friends go into harms way? Would we let them do something that could very well cost them their lives? Would we run the risk of "offending" them if it meant greater good for them? It is more than amazing to me that we, as Christians do not invite our best friends to come to church and hear the gospel. after all. what is the alternative to Heaven? Hell! If we have a best friend that doesn't come to church has never heard the gospel and needs the Lord...by all means and by any method...get them here
We saw nearly 200 people for our 150th Anniversary on Jan 5th. The big celebration will take place on April 25-26. We will have the Circle of Friends Quartet here on Saturday along with a fantastic dinner that you have to make reservations for by the way. We and hear from former Pastors, Bowles, Mooney and Gleason on the 26th. We will, as always, have great music and fellowship. There will be no Sunday School that day and the Service will start at 10:00 rather than 10:30 for that Sunday only. You will see pictures of people and things over the last 150 years and a I am confident you will hear the Word of God preached...because that's what we do. Looking forward to seeing you here.
If you want to see what's happening on Facebook with MRCC it's simple...Just go to Facebook.com and type in Mineral Ridge Church of Christ. Tah Dah!
Psalm 92:12-15 12The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; 13planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. 14They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, 15proclaiming, "The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him." I saw a couple of examples of this devotion in action over the last week or so. The first was Jimmy Carter. He had just come out of the hospital and you’d think a man in his 90’s would take it easy in all things but there he was teaching a Sunday School class on Sunday Morning. He has never stopped teaching and has never stopped learning and has never stopped being a productive member of society who contributes both physically and spiritually to those around him. The second example happened yesterday at men’s breakfast. Don came over and started talking to Tristen they were kidding each other but really what they were doing was fe
Check the website each week. We will be adding new devotionals from our Tuesday and Wednesday sessions that you can read, even if you can't come in person.
