God did not give us the spirit of fear; but of power, of love and of a sound mind.” 2Timothy 1:7 KJV
The Health Department has advised churches over 250 people to cease meeting at this time. (Being a
small church is a blessing in so many ways!) They are also advising smaller churches if they choose to meet to do so with a “sound mind.” (Be smart) We will use precautions but we will remain spiritually connected.
We will meet for worship at both 10am and 1pm. We will make some changes to the way we observe
communion and we will be creative with our Congregational Greeting which will involve love gestures
but not hugging.
If you don’t feel well or not comfortable meeting in a group JOIN US ONLINE!!!
Go to our Facebook Page (MCC San Antonio) and view our live stream.
Continue to support your church financially, whether or not you are able to attend.
Our Founder, Rev. Elder Troy Perry, told his pastor that he is choosing to stay home during this time, but
he is going to be watching his church’s service every Sunday morning and “Don’t you worry, I’m sending
my tithe check every week!” Spiritual and practical leadership from our founder.
During this time of anxiety and uncertainty let us reach out to those we don’t see. Call. Text. Stay
connected. Let us know what you need. Some will have more challenges than others but together we
will make it through this. You may need, more than ever, to be the hands and feet of God.
At the Board meeting we will discuss what the body wants to do as we move forward over the weeks
ahead. We may choose to continue to meet weekly. We may choose to meet virtually. No matter
what, WE WILL STILL MEET! We will NOT become disconnected out of fear. We do not choose a spirit
of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.
This is a time for us to live into our calling as God’s Loving People and to model what caring and
compassion looks like to our members, friends, allies, supporters, neighbors and, indeed, the world.

Looking forward to what God has in store.
