Hi Everyone!
It’s Girl Scout cookie time! Lydia usually loves selling cookies at church but sadly we cannot this year. The good news is she setup an online page that you can buy cookies from! We’ll deliver to you free of charge! Just place your order through her page. Hope we can see everyone soon! Stay safe and healthy!
We just got very troubling news. We have had the first COVID-19 related death of a member of our congregatoin. Kevin Horn died yesterday morning. He was a young man - father of 3 high school and younger children. He had been in our prayers for the last couple of years as he underwent treatment for cancer.
Please hold his children and wife in your prayers as they go through this time of grief.
Shalom?!

Glad to see my hubby assisting in worship this morning! #weareMidwayHills
Our wedding at MHCC.
Doing a little troubleshooting before the outdoor service on Sunday. 
What a wonderful time together today -- except for the bittersweet news about Greg -- and how interesting to attend a congregational meeting by Zoom! #wearemidwayhills
Couldn't manage to get my ipad in the photo with me, but here I am getting ready to join in Bible study today. So nice to see the faces & hear the voices of those participating!
Something for all of us to consider.
Too cute not to share!

Be Inclusive. Do Justice. Embrace Diversity. Midway Hills Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a progressive, open and affirming congregation living in to its mission to be inclusive, do justice, and honor diversity in North Dallas and to the ends of the earth.

Join us for Sunday morning worship at 11:00 a.m., with education classes prior at 9:30 a.m., and a coffee fellowship following worship.

Operating as usual

04/23/2021

It is official. This Sunday, April 25, we will be a hybrid congregation, offering both in person worship and still offering Facebook Live and Zoom online worship.

PLEASE RSVP your attendance for in person worship to the church office so we can be prepared to have social distancing protocols observed. Our goal is to have space for everyone who wants to attend.

It is going to be wonderful to be back in the Sanctuary together for worship. And, we have a few reminders as we desire to observe social distancing protocols for our time together in order to be as safe as possible.

Bring your own communion elements…and if you forget we will have pre-filled individual cup/bread.

Bring flowers from your yard/garden for the flowering cross that will be placed at the outside entrance.

We encourage you to still make your offering online or mailed to the office…offering baskets will be available at the exits.

Before you arrive make sure to have a face mask and to gather your own communion elements to bring with you.
Enter through the front doors by the office. An usher will greet you and guide you to your seat in the Sanctuary. Face masks must be worn at all times.
The seating will be by units who are currently together and there will be social distancing requirements between rows of seats.
At this time children will sit with their family. Sunday School and Nursery care will start at a later date.
A reminder: the church restrooms will have limited access, only one person at a time.
The remainder of the church has restricted access, so you will see the partition wall/dividers set up to prevent access to fellowship hall and the education wing.
Printed bulletins will be set on your chair.
We will have some choir members singing, but at this time there is no congregational singing. You are encouraged to sing in your heart or “breath sing” in your mask. You will notice the bulletin will not have the lyrics printed.
Our offering will be online as usual; we will not be passing the offering plate. An offering basket will be set at the exit.
At a later date coffee fellowship will resume.
There will be a designated exit. The south side of the Sanctuary will exit through the original doors and will be excused by row with the usher. The north side of the Sanctuary will exit through the doors to the hallway and then outside, again the usher will dismiss by row.
EVERYONE is encouraged to leave the building after the service and go outside.
If you choose to visit (it has been so long since we have seen each other) after the service - please do so in the parking lot; this will allow those to leave the area with the least amount of congestion.

This Week's Sermon: "How Long?" -- Rev. Laurie Anderson
Scripture: Psalm 13 & 1 John 3:16-22

Over half of the liturgical songs of the Israelites were Psalms of Lament. Penned in a time of exile and persecution, these were poets trying to give voice to the pain of the people. We lament the injustice of our time and yet, like the Psalms of Lament, we end in praise. We remember that God’s abiding love empowers us to truth and action.

Pre-service Music starts at 10:50 AM
Worship starts at 11 AM

This week's sermon: "Let Justice Roll"

We will turn from our apathy, turn from simply “going through the motions” of our life and worship. Instead we will pray to be active instruments of peace, agents of change in the world. Our identity is in the turning of our minds and hearts toward the world and its peoples.

Scriptures: Amos 5:21-24, Psalm 4

Please join us at 10:50am for music and then Worship at 11:00am.

Join Ms. Kathy for this week's children's church

I can think of nothing better, when emerging out of a pandemic, than total creative innovative freedom. Heck, even without a pandemic this is the most life-giving approach. One of my mentors is the master of “Yes, And” approach with leadership. This does not mean that every suggested strategy is given the “green light go” as soon as an idea/suggestion is given breath; it means that we vision, dream, and question one another to reach a better solution or conclusion.

Too often when we are tasked with “vision and dream” work some tend to assume to know what the conversation is and where the conversation is going. Some think about how to respond or react, more than listening to understand. Yes, And philosophy is a teamwork approach that embraces flexibility and empowers strategic and creative thinkers.

Toward the end of last year, it became known in conversations (in a variety of congregational settings), the reality of how church life was going to thrive was through innovation. We have all heard it said, “there is no return to normal.” In meeting with the Board Chair and Vice Chair we created a Vision Taskforce for Building Use. We have strong foundations of our existing vision and mission statements at MHCC; starting with Be Inclusive, Do Justice and Embrace Diversity. Our other statements are on our website. There is no need to alter our foundation, just to build on it. This taskforce is identifying our passions, gifts and resources as a congregation through the lens of building use. At the core of all ministry we do is relationships.

The taskforce has been meeting regularly this year. After our meeting this week we decided to share some of our guiding principles in our work, through graphics. If you have ideas to share with the team you are encouraged to reach out to anyone on the taskforce; if you have questions reach out to a team member. We will be communicating with the Board and congregation regularly. The team members are: Emily Adams, DC Ciccone, Dan Ga***rd, Mark Holmgren (Board Chair), Sara Leslie, Stephen Studnicka, and Rev. Laurie.
