Montrose Christian Church COVID-19 Update
and Plan for Sundays
Please visit the MCC YouTube Channel for video messages and worship song playlists.
MCC Church family, you certainly know by now that we don’t consider the Church to be a building or a slate of programs, but a gathering of people who have been “called out” to live for Christ. Fortunately, during these challenging times the Word of God reminds us to not forsake the gathering (Hebrews 10:25), but it doesn’t specify how large that gathering must be.
We are not a fearful group of people (Psalm 46). However, we ARE a loving group of people, and it is love that has prompted the leadership of MCC to make the difficult decision to be obedient to our state governor's "stay-at-home" order by putting a pause on our large group gatherings, including Sunday mornings, throughout the duration of the order.
Fortunately, we are “wired” for exactly this kind of scenario. As mentioned before, our identity is not tied to buildings and programs but to our common calling of following Jesus. Our values:
Directed by Scripture and the Holy Spirit
Devoted to Selfless Living
Dedicated to a Simple Focus on Relationships
Determined to Stand for the Family
…free us to live out our incredible calling until we can re-unite in a larger setting. Again, we’re doing this out of a love for our fellow mankind (John 13:34-35) and out of respect for our national and local leaders (Romans 13:1).
Let’s call this “staying relationally connected while being socially distant”. Please know that the MCC leadership (elders and staff) remain available to anyone who has any kind of need, be it prayer, food, supplies, or emotional support. So feel free to contact us by voicemail, text, or e-mail. We also encourage you to check in regularly on our website and Facebook page for updates.
In the yellow box on this page, we will be making the weekend worship study tools available for you to use in your homes. You can access these tools by clicking the links provided.
The most common command in Scripture is that we “fear not”, so in obedience and in a clear understanding that our mighty God is in absolute control and we need not fear, we will proceed in loving one another with no need to fear. No doubt God is doing a wonderful work through, and in, these interesting times. We love you all and look forward to being all together again soon!
May God bless you & keep you in His care!
