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.)
This Week in Worship
Sunday, December 21, 2014
God keeps the promise made to David, to give him an everlasting throne. The angel tells Mary that God will give David's throne to her son Jesus. She is perplexed by Gabriel's greeting and by the news of her coming pregnancy, but she is able still to say, "Count me in." We who know that Jesus is called king only as he is executed still find it a mystery hard to fathom, but with Mary today we hear the news of what God is up to and say, "Count us in."
Stir up your power, Lord Christ, and come.
2 Samuel 7:1–11, 16
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
The assembly sings stanzas 1,6,7,8.
Lo, how a rose e'er blooming
Hark! The herald angels sing
Donation and Community Garden
Memorial Drive Community Garden began as a Donation Garden in Spring 2014 with two raised beds contributing a small amount of produce to East Spring Food Pantry.
The Summer garden yielded an increased amount of produce consisting of Okra, Sweet Potato, Basil, Egg Plant, and peppers. The most successful plant is Eggplant with 20 going to the food pantry, 7 to Church members and another 6 or 7 plants to pick before the transitioned to the Winter Garden.
The winter garden has been expanded with a third bed with the following vegetables being planted:
Looking forward to January 2015 more beds will be added which will be made available to the community. Bed preparation for Spring is planned for the end of January with planting to begin Mid February to beginning of March. If you are interested in participating please contact the Church Office at (713) 468-9443. Come take a look and watch us grow!!
