Dear Friends, 

You and your loved ones are invited to attend and participate during the Sunday morning gathering at MDC. Please read the following note:

"Advent, the four weeks before Christmas, is a time in the calendar that the church has traditionally set aside to practice an intentional waiting on God. This waiting helps us remember the (very long!) time in which Israel also waited for God’s Messiah to appear to them, and also reminds us that, even as we know Jesus as Messiah and are living in the confidence and assurance of his victory over sin and death in the resurrection, we too are still waiting on God to bring his promised full redemption and restoration to our world. We can't bring that full redemption about ourselves, and so we call on God to do so, and until then, we wait. In the spirit of this, we will be studying the book of Malachi, the final prophet in the Old Testament, who called the Israelites to look to the future coming Messiah, who we know as Jesus. I invite us all to engage this Advent as a time of "faithful waiting" on God together." Pastor Joel Wentz
