In less than a week now, it will be…drum roll please….. Election Day! Who is excited?! Anyone hosting a watch party and inviting everyone they know?!? Ok, let’s be honest… that’s not happening. Most of us can’t even watch Viking/Packer games together let alone watching the most divisive election in recent history together.
The truth is, we live in a divided world. That’s why I am excited about the brand new, five week series we are beginning this Sunday in collaboration with two of our regional sister churches– Cedarbrook Church in Menomonie and Renew Church in Eau Claire. It’s a series called, ONE: Single Focus in Divided World.
For the next five weeks, pastors James Brown, Jamie Staples, and I will introduce five different topics that we believe can bring us together in the church–pointing us in the right direction for all that God desires of us.
I’m excited to kick it off this week talking about Jesus’ one prayer request to God right before he was betrayed and ultimately crucified.
If you can think all the way back to May, and our second month of church online, I actually introduced this one prayer that Jesus prayed. But at this specific point in time, we need to look again–with fresh eyes and open hearts.
I am excited to be together in-person and online. I sure do hope you are planning on one or the other!
Moms and dads, plan to arrive this Sunday with a little extra time to register your kids for MC KIDS! We will have limited space available for the soft launch of the first phase of MC KIDS’ re-opening. Check your kids in upstairs as you arrive, keep them with you for the first half of the worship experience, and then they will be dismissed to a clean, safe, socially-distanced, and age-appropriate learning environment created just for them!
