Daily Prayer Guide
We are called to pray for each other daily, and MEFC provides opportunities to help you keep yourself organized and accountable! Pick up a physical Daily Prayer Guide from the pamphlet display in the foyer. Praying for one another is a priceless gift!
Let's celebrate one another! A monthly list of MEFC birthdays and anniversaries can also be found on the bulletin board in the foyer. Is your special day missing from our list? Contact Megan in the office so we can update your information!
Mothers are encouraged to join us on Sunday morning to receive a special treat. Thank you for all that you do, moms!
New Sermon Series
This Week's Message
Message Study Questions
The Children's Ministry Mission is to:
- Teach children to understand and accept the gospel message of God's love for them from His Word
- Disciple children to grow in and be changed by their relationship with God
- Work together with our children to serve God and others
- Help children learn to share their faith with others and work to influence their culture
The Children's Ministry Team oversees AWANA, Sunday School, Children's Church, and MOPS. Members include Michala Petersen (chair), Katie Bergen, Katie Craig, Paul Mosley, Corey Vahl, and Pastor Lige.
When asked what drives her to serve in Children's Ministry, Michala Petersen replied, "Getting to see children light up when hearing about the Word is one of God's biggest blessings! Building little disciples for Christ through our various children's ministries is such a valuable asset to our church."
Are you interested in helping to further the mission of MEFC by serving our youngest members? Please contact Michala or the church office to learn about volunteer opportunities!

Groups Meeting at the Church
Please remember to check in with the office when planning for groups to meet in the church building so we can put you on the calendar. We have had several instances recently where more than one group planned to use the same room. We want to accommodate everyone as best we may, but planning ahead is key!
