The StorySign Up Button
Begins Winter (TBD) @ 10AM in the Upper Room
Have you ever wished that you could read the Bible from cover to cover, but didn't think you had the time?  If so, Max Lucado and associates have written The Story, an easy to read chronological translation of the Bible that begins with Genesis and continues through Revelation.  The book reads like a novel, filled with intrigue, romance, promises and drama.  The study will deepen your understanding of the Old and New Testaments and leave you with a sense of your place in the universe.  Starting in the new year, when masks will hopefully not be necessary.  

Mother’s of Preschoolers (MOPS) (Virtual)
MOPS will look a little different this year as we will not be meeting in person during the Fall Semester.  However, we are offering online “meetings which can be accessed through acquiring a MOPS membership at mops.org. Membership is $31.95 for the entire year and our group code is RTA2.  The “Decide to Rise” theme is based upon Psalm 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”   Hope to see you!  Please contact Maddie Soales for more information.

Bible Study with David Cotton
The weekly Bible study, posted on Monday afternoon on David's Facebook page, will continue as we begin the fall program at MPC. If you have participated throughout the COVID-19 period and during the summer, nothing changes. The study will be in two segments that can be viewed back to back or separately.

If you have wanted to attend and learn more about the Bible but have been unable to come to the church on an evening during the week, this is the opportunity to experience in-depth study into the Word of God and its impact and application for today's life issues. The study is posted Monday's on David Cotton's Facebook page and can be viewed at your convenience any time after that. Make the Bible come alive with Bible study that comes to you!

Also, David Cotton is offering, on his Facebook page, a short, weekly segment that brings  encouragement and positivity with a message of hope and faith to help us through these uncertain times. Check out the segment each week and be strengthened and uplifted!
