Welcome

McKendree is a family of people coming together. People of all races sing in harmony. The homeless hold hands with the affluent. We celebrate that we are all God’s children, worshiping and serving together.

******************************

SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES  are regularly at 9am and 11am.  In our new Sermon Series “Made For More!” Paul, the Apostle of Jesus Christ, reminds the people of the Ephesus community to unite under the sovereignty of Jesus Christ!  Christ has reconciled the whole of creation to himself and to God.  Paul is writing from prison to the church in Ephesus that they have a responsibility because humanity was Made For More in this world.  God has invited humanity to participate in this transforming act of salvation through Jesus Christ.

People of all nations are united to Christ and to one another in the church, through the working of the Trinity.  Paul uses several word pictures to describe the church: body, temple, mystery, new creature, bride, and soldier.

Christians should lead holy lives that give honor to God.  Paul issues specific guidelines for right living because humanity was Made For More!

CLARIFICATION ON PARKING IN THE McKENDREE GARAGE

Our parking garage is leased to and run by Premier Parking.  The corporation is changing to a fully automated system, which means there will no longer be attendants in the booth or on the first floor of the garage as you come in.

Sundays mornings – Take a ticket when entering the garage.  This will open the entrance gate so you may come in.  The exit gate will be open (up) from 10am-1pm on Sundays.  Parking will be free for attending worship on Sunday mornings.

Wednesday evenings – Take a ticket when entering the garage.  You will need to pick up a voucher, they will be in the green treasure chest in the back hallway.  As you leave, put your parking ticket in the machine.  The machine will tell you how much you owe.  Scan the parking voucher to override the charge and raise the gate.

Other times coming to the church – Take a ticket when entering the garage.  You will need to pick up a voucher from the church office.  As you leave, put your parking ticket in the machine.  The machine will tell you how much you owe.  Scan the parking voucher to override the charge and raise the gate.

Please contact Ruth Baggett in the church office at 615-271-2600 or mckendreeinfo@gmail.com if you have any questions.

CHRISTMAS EVE MEAL FOR THE DISPLACED – IT WAS GREAT!  On Christmas Eve we had a meal for our neighbors – around 300 people were here to enjoy ham, turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, sweet potato casserole, along with chess pie and brownies.  This would not have been possible without you!  One hundred volunteers were here to cook, serve, decorate, set up tables, greet our guests, help in the gift room, clean up and help in so many ways.  Thank you for your donations of food, money, time and presence!  Thanks to you, Christmas was not just another day for our neighbors.  God’s blessings on you all!
