Bible Studies at MDLC
Sunday Bible Study
9:15 am Youth Room of Fellowship Hall
What does it mean to be in fellowship around Word-and-Sacrament? Holy Communion defined a congregation in the first century. How do we live as members of God’s Family....around the Family Meal in in the community? How does that family grow? What is the difference between a Country Club, a Corporation, and a Congregation? How might all this shape you as you live in Christ?
Wednesday Morning Bible Study - resumes January 14
What was it like to live in a first century Christian congregation? How did people become Christians and members in a congregation before most of the New Testament was written? Dr. Howard Jones opens a window to the life and times of the earliest Christians through the pages and paragraphs of The Didaché, a document about the size of Mark’s Gospel) written before the New Testament Gospels and all the writings of John. And how did The Didaché manage to quote Matthew before there was a Matthew? (There is an easy answer to that Question.)
This Week in Worship
Sunday, February 1, 2015
In Deuteronomy God promises to raise up a prophet like Moses, who will speak for God; in Psalm 111 God shows the people the power of God's works. For the church these are ways of pointing to the unique authority people sensed in Jesus' actions and words. We encounter that authority in God's word, around which we gather, the word that trumps any lesser spirit that would claim power over us, freeing us to follow Jesus.
“Astounding Authority” (Mark 1:22)

An Invitation to join MDLC’s Donation Garden Project!
Memorial Drive Donation and Community Garden
Memorial Drive Donation and Community Garden began in 2014 to provide organic produce for local food banks. After two successful harvests a third bed was added to increase the varieties of plants grown for the Winter Season. As we transition to 2015 we are inviting the Memorial Community to grow their own organic produce in the garden starting with the Spring planting. You only need to provide soil, (seeds or plants) and the love of gardening. You sow, You reap, everything else is Free!
In February Beds will be added for interested parties on a first come basis and space is limited. If any MDLC members are interested, please let the church office know.
Come grow with us!
It’s lots of fun to watch plants grow and produce fruit!
Do you like to sing?
