BIBLE SUNDAY 

On Sunday, May 1, all Fourth and Fifth Grade students will have the opportunity to participate in Bible Sunday. This is a new celebration implemented by Children’s Ministry as part of MPC’s efforts to welcome children into worship and encourage families to worship together. Every year at MPC we will honor our Fourth Grade students by presenting them with their own Bibles. This year, we wanted to include the Fifth Graders as well. MPC Children’s Ministry wants to make sure that every child who walks through our doors has the opportunity to learn and discover the wonderful messages from God found in the Bible. They will receive their Bibles as a gift from the congregation during the 11 a.m. worship service.
