Bible Studies at MDLC
Sunday Bible Study
From the beginning of Christian worship, sermons were primarily preached on the Gospel readings. The Gospels were written to be foundations and vehicles for preaching. But the Old Testament and Second (New Testament) Lessons of the Liturgy often contain material at least as interesting and important as the Gospel.

All singers are welcome to be part of MDLC's Parish Choir! This group meets on Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM in the choir loft.
Worship and Music Ministry is soliciting for volunteers to help write script, take pictures of the Chrismons, and voices to produce the script! This is a very challenging project and W&M needs help. If you have talent that you would like to share with MDLC and the MDLC website audience, it would be greatly appreciated if you volunteered! We would like to post it on the website prior to Advent beginning. There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex.
