New Adult Bible Study; Names for the Messiah,  Wednesday nights, beginning November 8: What’s in a name? During Advent, we often hear repeated the words of Isaiah 9:6: “For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” These names may be so familiar that we say them without really pausing to ask: What do these names mean? That is the question we will explore together at our new adult Bible study, beginning November 8. Each week we’ll look at the historical, cultural, and biblical meanings of one of these four names. Join us as we discover more about our Savior so that, in celebrating his coming and looking forward to his coming again, we might more fully understand his name – and, therefore, more eagerly proclaim, “O, come, o come, Emmanuel!”

Local Missions/ Connecting Henry:  Some families in Henry County struggle to find the resources to bring Christmas cheer to their young children.  The Community Cares Toy Shop (sponsored by Connecting Henry) will be open on December 7th and 8th.  This is an opportunity for qualified residents of Henry County to experience Christmas shopping as a family.  Parents will be able to select toys and other items for their children, ages birth to 12 years old.  They will also go home with books (purchased through Scholastic) and gloves/scarves/hats donated by another local charitable organization. Here at MPC, we will collect toys, stocking stuffers, and Christmas gift wrap throughout the month of November.  Please select an “ornament” from the tree outside the Anchor and return your unwrapped purchases to the collection box.  If you wish to make a monetary donation (which will be used for the purchase of books and other items), please indicate “Community Cares Toy Shop” on the subject line of your check.We are also invited to volunteer at the Toy Shop on either December 7th or 8th.  This will no doubt bless anyone who participates.  If you wish to volunteer, please email Doris Griffin before November 17.
