Summer Connections – 2022

Monroe Community ChurchEvents, News

The Growth Team at MCC has planned a variety of events to bring us together as a community as well as nurture our faith.

Crucial Conversations

Crucial Conversations is a safe place to have healthy dialogue about challenging topics. On June 21 at 7PM we will meet at MCC to talk about human sexuality, gender, and faith. This is one of the most hotly debated topics in the church today. This summer the Synod of the Christian Reformed Church in North America (our highest ruling body) will address this issue. On July 26 at 7 PM we will meet at MCC to discuss racism and the church. Recently, the MCC Justice Team published a Statement on Racism. What are your thoughts? Join us for these Crucial Conversations!

Picnics in the Park

On the second Sunday of June, July, and August we plan to host a Picnic in the Park. This will be a fun and informal time to share a meal and get to know one another better following morning worship. Bring your own picnic style lunch and drinks. We will also have some extra food and drinks for any guests who may want to join. The first Picnic in the Park is June 12!

Golf

Golf lovers, this summer we are planning to hit the links! Keep your eye peeled for details. We are planning a two-person team scramble event. Golfers of all skill levels welcome. Our current plan is for Friday, June 10. Check back soon for a sign up.

Dinner Club

On June 18 Dinner Club returns! Dinner Club is a gathering of anyone older than 35 who wants to hang out, have a great meal, and great conversation. Be sure to be on the lookout for our sign up as the date gets closer.

Young Adults

Bible Bistro Bonding

Kids in third to eighth grade and their families are invited to meet together for a night of fun fellowship on May 21 from 5-7. The ping pong table will be out. Feel free to bring favorite board games and/or craft supplies. Pizza will be provided. Please RSVP to Carrie Steenwyk by May 18 with number attending and any dietary restrictions. Additional Bible Bistro Bonding times may be added during the summer months. Please watch the MCC newsletterSign up if you don’t receive the newsletter already.

Board Games

On the first Sunday of each month, Monroe Community Church hosts board gaming after morning worship until about 3:00 pm. Games range from easy kid-friendly family favorites to complicated strategy games. There is typically lunch available and we try hard to always have an available chair at each game table. This is a great low-pressure way to meet other MCCers!
