Our next Financial Peace University class will convene on Monday evenings 7:00-9:00 pm, from Oct 9 through Dec 11 (with a break for Thanksgiving on Nov 27). Ed Sykes will lead this group, which will meet at Hope Campus.
Read below to see the kind of results you can expect by following Dave Ramsey’s financial strategy…
This course, aimed at teaching sound and godly financial management skills, has gained nationwide acclaim in recent years, and for good reason. Our initial group of just nine participants, consisting mostly of non-members, collectively paid off more than $10,000 of debt during just the nine weeks we met together, while accumulating $4,600 in savings! You could achieve similar results if you have the discipline to follow Dave Ramsey’s proven strategy.
In Financial Peace University, Dave Ramsey and his teaching team walk you through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more. Local classes are made up of small groups of people who live in your area and are a great way to share ideas, be encouraged, and stay motivated. Classes meet for nine weeks and are led by a volunteer coordinator. One Financial Peace University membership per family is all you need to get started in a class. Registration costs $100, so this is no small commitment, but it will pay for itself many times over. We are also able to offer a limited number of “scholarships” to those who are unable to pay the registration fee.
This program is especially valuable for newlyweds and recent grads, but it’s never too late to start managing money more wisely.
Ask Pastor John Sunday
A few of our leaders have been kicking around ideas about how to share information and answer a few questions you may have about the church. There is talk of the United Methodist Church splitting, we are on a new district, and our church is making changes that we hope will improve our mission and ministry.
In addition to sharing, we want to hear your ideas and concerns. We invite you to submit your questions or concerns in advance or in person. We will do our best to address each and every one of them. You can send your questions, concerns or suggestions to askPastorJohn@MCchurch.net. We will also have slips of paper available at church and a collection basket.

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.
