What do your pets, Steve Davidowski, and ROAR have in common?

Rats, bats, bears, boars, cats, dogs, bugs—you bring it (or a photo of it) and Pastor Melissa will bless it! It’s a simple and meaningful service that you will enjoy.

11 a.m.: World Communion Sunday: Come share in worship with Christians from around the world and hear jazz artist Steve Davidowski play his never-before-heard interpretation of “For the Beauty of the Earth”.

High Noon (or there about)—ROAR Lunch: enjoy lunch with friends and neighbors, prepared by members of Rural Organizing and Resiliance (ROAR). Meet new friends at this popular event where there is always good eatin’! You can bring something to share or enjoy what others have brought.

Will they or won’t they??

After yesterday's weather mayhem we are evaluating what to do regarding services tomorrow. As of now we're ON for the Easter Sunrise service and the 11 a.m. service.
Please note that the Sunrise service will be at Marshall Presbyterian Church instead of the island.
More rain is expected today, so check back here this evening for definitive answers.

Fishing to serve the world

One Great Hour of Sharing

During Lent, Presbyterians in Marshall and all over the country are stuffing cardboard fish with coins for the One Great Hour of Sharing offering.  Again this year MPC will have a "fishing contest" with another Presbyterian Church in Texas - sharing the fun in a conference call the Sunday after Easter.  
Your organization may want to apply for help from the One Great Hour of Sharing.  Madison County's Neighbors in Need has been granted funds from OGHS in the past. 

The combined offerings are shared through grants:

Worship is cancelled for January 20...

Dicey, icy conditions around the county means the worship service for Sunday, January 20, is canceled.
We know you would figuratively break a leg to get here, but we don't want it to literally happen!
Stay home, stay warm, and we'll see you next week!
