Something Exciting is happening

We are currently working on a brand new website, in the meantime you can still connect with us here for important news, contact information and your latest issue of the Metro Word.

In Jesus' name: proclaim the gospel, make disciples, do justice.

State of the Synod Video Event

The 2020 Synod Assembly has been postponed. Nonetheless, the bishop and synod staff are planning to offer some virtual time for MCS members and congregations to reflect and celebrate.

On October 3 at 10:30 AM, we will be premiering a video event on the MCS Facebook and YouTube pages. You may watch the video, commenting and participating with others as it is premiered, or you may watch it after the event at a time that is convenient for you.

The video itself will highlight stories from MCS congregations, songs submitted from various ends of the synod, and brief reports from the bishop and synod staff. Think of it as an audio and visual online celebration of God’s Spirit at work in and through our communities and at the synodical level. The video will be accompanied by a full written report from the bishop.

Though at first a Zoom event seemed like a good option, we learned that in the current moment, one more commitment seemed for many of our leaders like one-too-many commitments on top of an already busy schedule.

We hope to see you on October 3.
