Regathering Guidelines
Here are links to the Regathering Guidelines for meeting Inside at the MCC and Outside at the MCC. Based on recent revised guidelines from the CDC, the Task Force has decided to amend the guidelines for outdoor gatherings to allow small groups to gather without masks if all participants have been vaccinated. The Regathering Task Force decided to postpone any decisions about indoor worship. Please contact the office if you'd like to get something on the calendar of if you have questions.

Confirmation: Save the Date
Families and mentors, please mark the evening of Wed, May 26, on your calendar for our next Confirmation gathering. As we did a couple of weeks ago, we'll meet at MCC after the 6:30 pm outdoor worship. We encourage you to come for the 1/2-hour worship as well as the Confirmation gathering. Check your email for a notice with additional details.

Kids in the Garden 2021
Kids in the Garden is back (we hope)! The plans now are to proceed with our Kids in the Garden program with children from the Lussier Community Education Center summer program. We will be making some changes including no indoor groups preparing food, no food sharing, safety protocols, etc. We plan to have 3 rotations for the participants: outdoor gardening at MCC, outdoor nature/art at MCC, and outdoor nature/art at Owen Park. It will be a 6 week program on Tue/Th mornings beginning June 29. The approximate time will be 9:30/9:45 - 11:15/11:30; exact details for transportation and schedules is still being worked out.

So what you can do now is go to the MSP volunteer site and choose the Kids in the Garden ministry you would like to be part of. Then in May, when the summer schedule is announced, you will be able to go in and actually schedule yourself for specific days.

It is important for us to know now how many volunteers we have, and we thank you in advance for your participation! If you have any questions, please contact Joyce Anderson 608 848-3867 or blajoy@tds.net

Awaken Dane
The Wis. Council of Churches and others have a new grant-funded project about connecting congregations with each other and with their neighborhoods. The first cohort of 20 congregations will begin soon. A main part of the program is relationships between clergy, but there is also a congregational small group component, helping see the place of ministry for Advent-Hope/MCC in the city. Let Nick or Sonja know if you're interested. You can read more https://awakendane.org/ or click here for a one page summary
