March 29
WHAT: As we pray with Jesus along the way this Lent season, we’re finding ourselves in a strange land. So many of our prayers are related to coronavirus, and we find ourselves at a physical distance. But we’re still praying—together. We’re still worshiping—together. And this week we will also have communion—together. You are invited to set a sacred space in your home where you will be at your computer or on your phone. Light a candle or place a significant object that reminds you that you are on holy ground, wherever you find yourself. And have a piece of bread (a cracker a pancake or even a waffle!) and a cup of juice (or wine or even water, in honor of the wedding at Cana where Jesus turned water into wine!) ready to go for our virtual communion. You can find the bulletin here. Jesus promises to with us at our “table” that stretches wide. An echo of world communion Sunday, a day we remember that we are one Body of Christ that stretches the globe.

HOW: This Sunday we will be worshiping via Zoom. Click here to find the link to join on your computer or smartphone. If you’re joining the audio by phone, call 312-626-6799, and enter Meeting Code: 790 085 940. (See information about using Zoom elsewhere in this announcement.)

WHEN: Worship will begin on Zoom at 10:15 am. However, you can jump in as early as 10 am if you who wish to have extra time to make sure your technology is working properly or just to mix and mingle with those who arrive early. AND, be sure to join in the MCC Coffee & Fellowship Time after worship at 11:30 am. Look for the separate announcement about this.

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.

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.
