waystoprayHey MH,  It's Wednesday and we hope you are having a good middle of your week.  Here are a few prayer requests for the church that we ask that you would lift up.  

1.  Pray for Summer Outreach - Ask God to use this very unique season in our church year to connect with new people.  We are still having guests on Sundays and there are great opportunities to connect since our services are smaller.  Also pray that we'd connect with people at the Taste of Amherst who would want to go further in conversations about Jesus. 

2.  Pray for Summer Community Building - Ask God to use the summer months to help build a more tight knit community among the MH members and attendees.  Pray for friendship building and sharing of life.  Pray for conversations among us that would lead to growth in the grace of the gospel. 

3.  Pray for Pastor Robert's voice - Robert's voice is better but it's still not that great.  Pray it is restored so he can resume his ministry.  Pray that this time of relative silence would be used of God for refreshment and insight.  

4.  Pray for the Elders - This weekend the elders of MH (Tom, Dan, Robert, Steve, Chris) will be spending Friday night and Saturday together praying, assessing that past 12 months of our church ministry and considering where God may be leading us in the coming months.  Pray for intimacy with Jesus, friendship, unity, and wisdom. 

Thanks!

We'll spend time each week debriefing the book and certain biblical passages as well as considering solutions to our own crazy busy problems. Cost of book is $10 and are available for purchase on Sunday morning while supplies last.

Do your best to read the first three chapters (they are short!) before you come on June 1st. We'll meet 6/1; 6/8; 6/15; 6/22. Bring food at 6pm if you want to eat together before we start the discussion time.

What's Next? How do I apply yesterday's sermon? PDF Print E-mail

If you heard yesterday's sermon on 1 Peter 2 or listened to the recording you heard 3 basic truths about the nature of the church:

1.  The church is being built by God himself
2.  The church is being built out of Christians (living stones) on the foundation stone of Jesus
3.  Christians have a new identity (children of God and siblings of one another) and live that identity out as prophets, priests, and kings in their local church

Pretty amazing to think about but a sermon like this needs to find it's application in not only the mind but in action.  Here are a few ideas regarding how you can put this into practice this summer.  As you read this, be prayerful and ask God to show you ways to put these truths into practice.  

Prophet - ministry of words
  • Engage someone in the church about yesterday's sermon or something else that you've been reading or listening to.  Seek to have conversations with your fellow Christians that provide opportunities for growth.  
  • Look for ways that you could verbally encourage other people in the church.  This could be in the form of an email or note or a face to face conversation.  
  • Consider offering to help with a small group.  We are always looking for people who are willing to teach others on an ongoing basis.  Be ready to first be trained and work as an apprentice as you enter into this kind of ministry.  
  • Write something that is related to faith and post it online or post an article that someone else has written and comment on it.  Social media can be a way to disseminate the truth of the gospel to others. 
  • Be alert to opportunities to speak the truth of the gospel to those inside and outside of the church.  The gospel is "good news" and the only way people get to hear it is if we talk to them about it.  
Priest - ministry of action
  • Take action to meet a need of someone in the congregation that you are aware of.  Pray for them.  Help them move.  Make them a meal.  Offer to babysit.  Don't just ask what they need.  Try to anticipate it and tell them you are willing to do it or if appropriate just do it without telling them.  
  • Give generously of your money to meet the needs of the church and/or the needs of an individual.
  • Inivite someone inside the church or outside the church (or both!) to have dinner in your home.  
  • Volunteer to help with the kids ministry, usher/greeter team, AV team, hospitality team (for more info. contact Lois at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).
  • Volunteer to help with communion and reading scripture on Sundays.
  • Come early on Sundays to pray in the prayer room before a service.  
  • Volunteer to do some cleaning or painting around the church building.
King - ministry of oversight
  • Help Lois with coordination of the volunteers for the Taste of Amherst
  • Help one of our servant team leaders with communication/coordination of their volunteers
  • Help a small group leader with the logistics of their group.  (Crazy Busy class could use a king!)
  • Help with hosting a Mission Team from Houston, TX that will be coming to serve at MH in July
  • Help coordinate the cleaning schedule at MH

These are just a few ideas.  There are many more that you and the Holy Spirit may be able to think of.  If you have questions, contact our church office at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  

Have a great week!

bapsteveCome join us for one of the most inspiring experiences of our church year.  We'll be celebrating the baptism of six different people this Sunday, May 1st at 4pm.  We'll gather on the banks of Puffer's pond to hear the stories of each person and see them identify with Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection through the rite of baptism.  Park along State Street and meet us on the beach that is on the State Street Side of the pond.
