November 1: All Saints Shared MCC Worship

We look forward to trying our first shared on-line Sunday morning worship service for this day of remembrance. We’ll make space to hold the variety of griefs we and the world are experiencing at this time, light candles and name the saints of our lives who have died this past year, share communion, and remember our hope in Christ. This might be a great Sunday to invite a friend or family member to church.

Additional Chances!
Remember that, even though we most encourage you to gather in worship at 10:15, the videos remain available at our YouTube channels afterward, so you can go back and catch Holy Week services you missed, or join in with our partner congregation’s worship for an MCC experience! Here is the YouTube channel link: Community of Hope UCC.

Midweek Evening Prayer: Wednesdays
At 8:45pm on Wednesdays, join your pastoral staff for a brief, reflective wind-down to your evening, with focus on scripture, quiet time, and song. Find it in videos on www.facebook.com/madisonchristiancommunity. You don’t need a Facebook account to watch, but do if you’d like to comment with greetings or prayer requests. You can also find it to watch later, if live doesn’t work for you. Click here for the  9-23-20 edition.


Weekly Bible Readings
Within the Worship-to-Go booklet are some general Bible reading options, but if you’d specifically like to connect with what is read in worship and reflect on those.

Worhsip in the Round    Worship in the Round

Community of Hope, UCCOur Roots
In 1957, four denominations rooted in the Protestant Reformation joined together to form the United Church of Christ. Its member churches live in a loving covenant with one another and with God as revealed in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit. This covenant preserves the autonomy of the local congregation. The unity that we seek requires neither an uncritical acceptance of any point of view nor a rigid formulation of doctrine. We believe in responsible freedom—we embrace individual expressions of faith, and the individual questioning and seeking of God’s presence in our lives. We believe that we are called to minister to others and seek to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, God with us.

    Worships in the Covenant Room

 
MCC Worship includes
    Prairie Roots
        led by our own Prairie Reckoning Group
    Taizé Service
    Hymn Sing Service


*Prairie Roots: Formerly known as "Prairie Reckoning," we have chosen a new name that reflects who we currently are and what we currently do: we play "roots" music (country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues) that is rooted in our Christian faith. In addition, we like the symbolism - knowing the amazingly deep and complex root systems of prairies.
