While we are having repairs made at MCC Topeka, Pastor Paul will only be it the office as needed. Please call and make an appointment. This will be until mid-August.
Sunday, Aug 13 following Worship
“Meet the Gnostics”
Gnosticism was very popular at the time of the Early Church. Were they heretics? Were they progressive Christians?
Meet some of the personalities, find out what made them different. Maybe they’d be right at home in MCC Topeka!
A light lunch will be provided.
As part of our outreach to the community, we have installed a Blessing Box in our yard near the Community Garden.
This is a small wood box containing non-perishable food and hygiene products. These items are free for anyone to take who is in need, and at the same time people in the neighborhood and our church can donate items by placing them inside the box. This is a way for our church to partner with the Blessing Box movement in Topeka.
We need volunteers from MCC Topeka to prepare a main dish, salad or veggies and dessert for Tue, August 15. Please contact Deb for more details on this opportunity to put our faith into action.
CIRCLES; An Outreach Opportunity with First Christian Church:
The Mission: To inspire and equip families and communities to resolve poverty and thrive. Brochures are available in the parlor. MCC of Topeka is hosting the meal the 3rd Tuesday of every month. If you are Interested in helping, please contact Deb Bader at email@example.com.
Our LOVE BOX is in the parlor to help people. It is located on the shelf under the bulletin board in the parlor. If you have a concern about yourself or someone else, or if you want to leave a note of appreciation for someone, please write it on a 3 x 5 card and place it in the box. The Congregational Care Team will read the cards, and when possible, provide support in meeting those needs or communicating your “thanks”.
