What does God’s word have to say about forgiveness? Where can you find insights about Jesus in the Old Testament? Where’s the best place to hide if you’re afraid of the Midianites? What did God so want you to know about himself and his plans for you that he inspired godly men throughout history to write it down for your benefit?
Find the answers to these questions and many more this coming September by enrolling in our latest Disciple I Bible Study. Disciple is an intensive 34-week survey of the entire Bible. (Participants will actually read about 70% of God’s Word during the course of the study.) The program combines daily reading assignments with a weekly group session where participants will have a chance to dig deeper, ask questions, and learn from Bible experts via video presentations.
This is a challenging study calling for a commitment to spend time each day in the Bible, but those who are willing will emerge with a solid grasp of God’s direct revelation. Every Christ follower needs to know who we are, who God is, and how he wants us to relate to him. This is the study that provides all three!
The group will be jointly led by Bruce Heydt and Rich Hill. The weekly group sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings. The cost of materials is $40. (Some financial assistance is available for those who need it.) More details will be provided throughout the summer in your worship bulletins and on the church website at MCchurch.org, but if you already know you’d like to be a part of the group, contact Bruce at email@example.com.
Since 2006, MCC has partnered with Glad Tidings India to bring the Gospel to previously unreached portions of India. Our financial assistance has funded the launch of nine churches and the training of nine missionary pastors, and we’ve also donated upwards of 1,200 Bibles to the work of Glad Tidings.
2017 marks the 90th birthday of Glad Tidings’ founder, Bill Scott, and to celebrate, the ministry hopes to collect enough money to provide 25,000 Bibles to new Christians in India. As long-time friends of Glad Tidings, they’ve invited MCC to help in this effort. If you would like to make a contribution, please pick up one of the flyers you’ll find outside each of the worship venues, which contains all the necessary information, or see the link below. Thank you for your ongoing support of this fabulous ministry!
On February 11, 2017, MCC’s Director of Outreach Ministries, Bruce Heydt, joined Abigail Mercado, Director of Lancaster City Services with Susquehanna Valley Pregnancy Services, at WJTL’s Junction Center to record a spot for “Created for Him,” a weekly podcast celebrating God’s work in the community.
The podcast highlighted MCC’s partnership with SVPS and our mutual dream of providing tangible support to women in the Millersville community who face difficult choices as a result of unplanned pregnancies.

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. An enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny.
But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you want to build up your defenses, then The Armor of God study is for you.
The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

March 6-June 12
GriefShare Seminar and Support Group will run on Monday Evenings beginning on March 6, 6:30-8:30 PM in the Prayer Room at Hope Campus, 242 Bender Rd. It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. We know it hurts to lose someone close and we understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement. GriefShare is a weekly DVD seminar and support group for people who are grieving the loss of someone close to them. There is a $15 cost. If you have any questions, please contact Peggy Manning at 898-2027 or firstname.lastname@example.org or the church office at 717-872-4571.
