Library Grand Opening: May 17!

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

It’s been a long time coming — but it’s finally here!  The hopes and dreams of many people are being realized with the grand opening of the Jesus MCC Church Library!

Much of the initial collection was donated by Dennis and Sammy Wellman, and many others have donated books, hard work, and many hours to make this worthy project happen.

We’ll be open for the first time on Sunday, May 17, between the morning services and after the 11:00 am service, and at 5:00 pm, before the evening service.  Join us in celebration!

Watch your bulletin for opportunities for service in the library, and a list of needed books and resources.

Great news! Our sermon webcast is now up and running! Each Sunday’s sermon is now posted by Wednesday of that week.

Many thanks go to everyone who has contributed to make this happen, including our Media Team, which does incredible work each week! Please lift this endeavor in prayer — may it reach out to those who are seeking a message of God’s love.

Still to come:

  • Television-style intro and exit segments.
  • a software upgrade that will improve several functions.
  • same-day access: soon, we’ll have a team in place that will make the video and audio sermons available on Sunday afternoon. If you’d like to be part of this technical, behind-the-scenes team, please email the web manager.

We welcome your comments, questions, and suggestions — please email or call the office.

A Milestone in Affirming Christian Resources

Thursday, July 5th, 2007

If you are a GLBT Christian, where do you turn to find spiritual books and resources to support your life journey? The truth is, you have very few options. At Jesus MCC, we’re determined to change that. We’re committed to a long-term goal of generating resources that can support GLBT Christians across the globe.

Found Pearl Press logoTo that end, several years ago, we formed a publishing house known as Found Pearl Press that is staffed by volunteers from our congregation The first big project was publication of The Children Are Free: Reexamining the Biblical Evidence on Same-sex Relationships, which has become one of the best-selling books on homosexuality and the Bible. In fact, demand is so high, we’re now in our fourth printing, and within a couple months the book will also be available in Spanish!


Be Still and Know… goes live!

Sunday, May 21st, 2006

We’re excited to announce that Jesus MCC now offers a new tool to help with your spiritual walk — Be Still and Know…, a daily “quiet time” resource on the church web site.

Be Still… provides a scripture selection and thoughtful, lively commentary written by members of Jesus MCC. We’ve assembled a team of 15 writers, who have some terrific things in store — this won’t be just another boring ol’ devotional.  Check it out and consider making it part of your daily routine.
