Upcoming Events at MLUPC

Know what Christians Believe!
Starting January 21st
Our Preaching theme will be "Know What You Believe" from the Heidelberg Catechism.  This series will cover the Apostles' Creed, Salvation and the Sacraments, the Ten Commandments and the Lord's Prayer.  Week by week we will walk through the 129 Questions/Answers for the next 52 Sundays.

The Heidelberg Catechism was written in Germany's Palatine along the Rhine in 1562, by the young Zacharias Ursinus and Capar Olevianus for the Elector Frederick III.  Its writing was occasioned by a scuffle at the communion table of the Holy Ghost Church of Heidelberg between its two pastors over Reformed/Luthren views of the Sacrement.  It is said to offer "the intimacy of Martin Luther with the Charity of Philip Melanchthon and the fire of John Calvin."

Do anticipate each week's Heidelberg Questions/Answers in the Worship Folder.  Bring your own copy of the Book of Confessions or purchase a special Heidelberg Catechism booklet with Scripture references (at the Narthex Tape desk on Sunday or in the Church Office during the week) for $5.00.  You can also download the Book of Confessions from the PCUSA website (www.pcusa.org).  God bless you in this great endeavor.

Inquirers Classes
January 14th and 21st
Inquirers classes for those who are interested in pursuing church membership will be held on two consecutive Sundays, January 14 and January 21, from 9 a.m. - 10 a.m. in Pastor John's office.  Attendance at both classes and a personal follow-up interview are required for membership.  New members will be presented to the congregation at the eleven o'clock worship service on Sunday, February 11, 2001.  To register, or for more information, call Marilyn Beckstrom (531-3387 x208)

Family Club
The Next semester will begin January, 31 2001, and run for 10 weeks.  Join us each Wednesday for a great time of study, music and fellowship  For kids from age 4 through grade 5 and their families.
Our desire is to introduce kids to the love of God through Jesus Christ and to provide a place an relationships where they can come to know Jesus personally, learn the word of God, and get excited about being a follower of Jesus.  We do this through Bible study, music and creative arts.  And we have a great time doing it!!

The Program...
All kids meet from 3:45 until 6:00pm.  Group times include bible study, Presbykids Choir (grades 1-5), or Kids Praise (preschool - K), crafts and recreation.  Kids are placed in groups by age/grade.
Dinner...
An exciting part of Family Club.  If you've attended family club in the past and have not stayed for dinner, this might be the year.  (Your kids are probably already asking to stay!)  Parents and siblings, along with many other friends from the church family join for dinner at 6:00 PM.  It's a room full of wonderful food, lots of energy, and abounding in love.
There will be at least one change in our dinner hour this semester.  There will be no standing reservations.  Dinner reservations will be available to the first 100 people who call or stop by each Wednesday..
