July Updates

Hi y’all! Time sure flies and we’ve already reached mid 2012. God has been good and has truly been among this ministry throughout the first half of the year by providing us many opportunities to host events which introduce the gospel, and I trust that He’ll continue His good work for the rest of the year – so stay tuned for more events to come!

** 1. Trivia Night thankyous

Thank you to all those who came along to Trivia Night! A big congratulations to ‘The Punny Team’ who won the gold medals for the night, coming first in categories such as history, science and Bible trivia. Thank you also to those who organised the event and made it possible. If you would like to be challenged further and delve into God’s word and biblical issues, remember to come along to our Youth and Young Adults Bible Study on Friday nights.

** 2. Winter Freeze thankyous

A massive thank you to all those who got involved in our 2-day youth holiday program, Winter Freeze, which concluded last Friday. Throughout the two days, we explored the core Christian beliefs on becoming a Christian in an interactive way through the evangelism tract ‘Four Spiritual Laws’, and worked through fundamentals of Christian living such as prayer, reading the Bible, and being in the world but not of the world. Praise God for the great turnout of the youth who participated and the faithfulness of those who were so willing to help out!

** 3. Youth and Young Adults Bible Study

Youth and Young Adults Bible Study recommences on Friday July 20th, where we will be finishing off 1 Thessalonians and starting 2 Thessalonians in this new semester. This book of the Bible continues to clarify the events surrounding the second coming of Jesus, and also emphasises the power of prayer and the mightiness of God. Be sure to come along to read God’s word and fellowship together this semester!

** 4. Coffee Night

Each year, MCCC hosts Coffee Night where church members have the opportunity to present musical items to praise God and to share how God has impacted their lives. Love a relaxed night of fellowship and hot beverages, or have a creative bone and want to praise God by presenting an item? Stay tuned! Coffee Night 2012 – coming soon!

That’s all for now – keep on checking back for updates!

All glory be to God!

May updates.

Hi y’all! 😀 As the weather is getting cooler, put some warmth back into your life and drop by at MCCC 😉 Some announcements for May:

** 1. Easter Services & Picnic thankyous

To those who came to the Good Friday service and the Easter Sunday service & picnic, we hope you had a great time commemorating Jesus’ death and resurrection with our church. A huge thanks especially to those who helped organise the picnic, it wouldn’t have been possible without all your hard work. It was very encouraging being able to hear both old timers and new comers share about their faith – praise God!

** 2. Youth and Young Adults Bible Study back up and running!

Come join us for our Youth and Young Adults (YYA) Bible Study nights which happen every Friday from 8-10pm! Well, most Fridays, unless we’re on exam/holiday break (which you will be notified about on this space – keep on checking back for updates!)

Does this all sound a bit foreign and daunting? Here’s a bit of a run down on what you can expect on a typical night at YYA:

– Introducing: The typical YYA Bible Study Night –

8.00: /Singspiration/: The act of singing worship songs as a group to praise God

8.20: /Announcements/: General admin stuff, including a short summary of the Bible passage

8.30: /Bible Study/: we break off into small groups (by year level) which is an open often forum for questions and discussions on the Bible passage. At the moment we’re looking at a book called 1 Thessalonians from the New Testament, which has many practical lessons about what a model church looks like, how we can encourage one another, and the second coming of Jesus.

9.20: /Games/: Usually involves team-building activities such as Pictionary, action charades, and other unique games thought up by our creative team leaders.

9:50: /Supper & hang out/: Delish food, Chinese tea, and if you’re not in a rush to go home, stay back for some quality conversations or to simply unwind from the long week!

… so we hope that gives you a snapshot of what YYA looks like! Whether you’ve been a Christian for 10 years or just wondering whether there is a God, I invite you to join us for our Friday night program to learn more from the living word of God.

** 3. Prayer and Share Night

Once in every few months, we have something called Prayer and Share Night which is… exactly as the name suggests! So instead of Bible Study, we share with each other about what God has been doing in our lives, praise points, for upcoming exams, difficulties in life, and pretty much anything you’re happy to share about. Prayer is essentially talking to God, so this is a great reminder to thank God and communicate with Him in everything we do. Our upcoming Prayer & Share Night is on Friday May 18th at 8pm.

Hope to see you all there!
