Section 1 - Testimony & Praise Report


"What a year it has been! During a season where we thought things are put to a pause - this is not the case! Looking back on this last season we can reminisce on some pretty cool testimonies starting with the new families that have begun coming out to our church! Since March 2020, our church family has grown by ATLEAST 40 individuals... that is no exaggeration! But most importantly, we have had multiple salvations and baptisms within this new church growth… God is doing BIG THINGS... be encouraged, church family!

  Along with this, our 11-week Alpha program has come to a close, and I want to share with you how it went! We had people of all ages, coming from Scarborough, Ajax, Peterborough, Lindsay, Stirling, and as far as Michigan join this Alpha! There were new friendships made, new perspectives grown, and church involvement happen. Our prayer was that new people learn about God and grow in the faith and this certainly happened! More people outside the church have expressed interest in joining the next one and so I ask you as the body of Christ to continue keeping this in your prayers! I anticipate more good things to come out of this program as we continue it!" - Cara Tetroe

Section 2 - All About Prayer

"Hi church family, we might be apart physically but we can be together in prayer! I was just thinking of a few things we could join in prayer for:       
- the people in our congregation that is working from home while simultaneously trying to home-school their children
- the ones living in fear both of covid and of being alone
- the safety of the children and parents that come out to enjoy our park

 
          These are just a few suggestions and I know you can think of more so  let's have some wonderful praise reports when we meet again!" - Dawna Hawkshaw

Section 3 - Word of Encouragement


"To My Church Family,
      A little note to thank you and to remind you how important you are to God’s purpose.  You are an intricate part of His amazing plan with a key role that no one else can do.  Only you.  
It is tough to imagine what the next few weeks will be like without being able to gather together.  We’ve done it before, but this time, it seems like it will be more difficult.  After all, we have had Holy Spirit-filled services for weeks now!  We just got used to something that resembled what church is supposed to look like.  How do I get that into my living room?
     From your living room to mine...we are the church.  You are the piece MCA needs to complete God’s plan.  You are an MCA satellite office.  Your prayers, the time you spend checking in on others, the resources you provide to people in need, your tithes, and your offerings make you the church.
       Malachi 3:10 says this about your giving: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.  ‘Test me in this' says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.’” The Bible really says to test God in this to see for yourself the blessing that you will not have room enough for! Thank you for continuing to ‘be the church.’  Until we meet again …"  - Kim Jewell

Section 4 - What is Next for MCA 

This week is our last bible study with Donna Hawkshaw?
   or IS IT?
 

SURPRISE!
We are starting another Bible Study! 

It is called, “I Am” by Rose Visual Bible Studies which talks about the 7 Powerful Claims of Christ! This will be a multi-location Bible Study which means, 10 people will be able to register and confirm their spots for gathering in the church for the next 6 weeks (due to restrictions) & the rest are welcome to register to our online Bible Study through zoom - the church wants to make sure everyone has an opportunity to partake in this!

The description of the study is taken from the book and shared below:

“This informative 6-session study gives an introduction to the “I Am” statements Jesus adopts in the Gospel of John. Helpful charts, pictures, and practical applications summarize the overview of everything you need to know about Jesus’ attributes. In the clear and easy-to-read style of Rose's visual elements, Rose Visual Bible Studies are packed with charts, graphs, images, and fascinating facts. These Bible studies are easy enough that the new believer understands but in-depth enough that the longtime churchgoer still comes away learning something new.”

We will be aiming for Sunday, May 2nd at 6:30 pm for the in-person Bible study at the church and Wednesday, May 5th at 6:30 pm for the mid-week Bible study via zoom! You can purchase a physical copy online, or the kindle version, or even follow along with us as we read on the screen via zoom. 
Registrations are below:
