Sunday September 24 – Membership Class. Have you thought about
becoming a member? Church membership is an important
step in commitment to the work and ministry of our church. Membership
has ‘voice and vote’ – all congregants have a voice in church matters, members also have the ability to
vote on key matters at official church meetings, including our annual congregational meeting (scheduled for October 15). The class lasts no longer than an hour (12-1pm) and provides insight
into MCC and MCC Hartford, its history, values, and calling. So, join us for the class if you are curious and want to know more or ready to make a commitment to our church
and its ministry. For any questions or to schedule
a different date for this class, please contact the pastor.
