Homeless Ministry honored with Community Partner Award

Friday, August 31st, 2007

On Sunday evening, August 26, members of Jesus MCC’s Homeless Ministry and their guests attended Horizon House’s annual fundraiser, “Tackling Homelessness,” sponsored in part by Colts player Hunter Smith. The event was held at the Colt’s training facility, and featured a performance by the Christian rock group, Connersvine, Hunter Smith’s band. Several other Colts players, including Jeff Saturday and Dallas Clark were on hand to take pictures with people and to sign autographs.

But one of the highlights of the evening came when Joe Slaughter of Herff Jones got up to speak and present the Community Partner Award, which was given to Jesus MCC’s Homeless Ministry. (Herff Jones received the award in 2006.)

Celebrating Our Children!

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

On August 26, at the 9:30 am and 11:00 am services, we will be celebrating our amazing children and youth! The celebration will include:

  • Offering a prayer of blessing for our children, for our Children’s Church team, and for all the people in our church who are a part of the public and private educational system,
  • Children and youth will participate in the worship service, and
  • Third-graders will receive Bibles.

If you have a third-grader, please fill out the form in Sunday’s bulletin or email us with your child’s name and your name. We want to identify all of our third-graders so we can be sure they all receive a Bible.
