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
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.)
Wednesdays at 6:00 pm in
Vesper service to follow.

Second Sunday in Lent
The second covenant in this year's Lenten readings is the one made with Abraham and Sarah: God's promise to make them the ancestors of many, with whom God will remain in everlasting covenant. Paul says this promise comes to all who share Abraham's faith in the God who brings life into being where there was no life. We receive this baptismal promise of resurrection life in faith. Sarah and Abraham receive new names as a sign of the covenant, and we too get new identities in baptism, as we put on Christ.
O God, by the passion of your blessed Son
you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life.
Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ
that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son,
Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever. Amen.
Genesis 17:1–7, 15–16

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!
Come grow with us!
It’s lots of fun to watch plants grow and produce fruit!
Do you like to sing?
