Kingdom Prayer Focus

Lord, thank you for the chosen family that you have given to each one of us in this body of believers. Give us wisdom to know that this is the place where we practice our faith. Bring us out of isolation and into the loving arms of the church body. Show us that spiritual transformation only takes place when we are in community. Bless each one of us with a heart of mercy, full of grace as we try to blend our doctrine and our duty. Teach us to be loyal and honor one another us as You bring revival to our hearts. We want to love the way You love and to think the way You think. Give us the boldness to share that love and the confidence to know that You will speak through us to those you send our way. In Your precious name, amen.

All of our McConnell family is invited to join us tonight at 6:00 pm in the Worship Center to attend their commencement service. It is truly a delight to see these little ones, and have the opportunity to share this important milestone with our community, parents, and families.

McConnell Church members - It’s time to begin prayerfully considering your recommendations for the office of deacon for the coming year. Our deacons serve for terms of three years after having been nominated and elected by the church.

They, along with their Awana leaders & volunteers, will be recognized at the annual Awana Banquet on Thursday, May 19th at 5:30 pm in the Family Life Center. This is a fun time of celebration for the entire family with the kids sharing what they have learned this year, the presentation of book awards and a special meal for the families!

PARENT CHILD DEDICATION | 5/22 or 6/19
Parent Child Dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. The dedication service provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express publicly your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in partnership with the church, so your child will develop a desire to love and serve God. With the pandemic, we have missed having this dedication so we have scheduled two opportunities: Sunday, May 22nd or Sunday, June 19th. Please contact the church office to sign up or click here to register online.
