What’s Happening: December 30, 2016

THIS SUNDAY AT McKENDREE!
January 1, 2017
One Combined Service — 10am
Join us as we begin the New Year with worship!

Our January sermon series is entitled “Drawing Circles around God’s Promises!”  Every year we start with a set of goals we believe would make us better than the year before.  However midway through January, there are many distractions and missteps, and our lack of discipline prevents us from achieving our well-intended goals.

Beginning in January, let’s try a different method. It involves the spiritual discipline of prayer.  Before starting any goals, let’s seek God’s direction first.  After seeking God ask Him to lead us to draw a circle around it with prayer.  And finally, expect the pray to be answered through the form of a miracle.  In January, pray to God to give you big dreams that only God can help you accomplish!

ENCOUNTER@METROCENTER  Each Sunday at 12:30pm, McKendree Church has an alternative worship service for those who feel “church” isn’t for them.  This service meets at the United Methodist Publishing House, 2222 Rosa Parks Blvd.

ENCOUNTER@EDGEHILL The Encounter@Edgehill meets the first Sunday of each month at 4:30pm at Edgehill Café, 1201 Villa Place.  In risky, vulnerable small group conversations around tables we seek to confront issues of privilege, racism, and classism that divide us, and to hear the call to God’s beloved community.

Everyone is welcome to attend one or both of our Encounter services.  For more information on either of our Encounter Ministries, you may contact Rick Quinn at mckendreerick@gmail.com.

 

As always, remember God’s will for us is good, we must do the rest!
Pastor Stephen
