what to expect

If you are new, here’s what you can expect on a Sunday morning at MAC.

You are WELCOME – As you walk in, you may notice the wall with this message: It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, what you’ve done, what you’re like, or what your circumstances are right now, in Jesus’ name, you are welcome here! (It may sound similar to a cheesy pop song from the 90’s but it’s also true!)

What should I wear? – If you are a suit and tie person, go for it.  If you prefer jeans and a t-shirt, that’s great too.  God cares a lot more about our hearts than the clothes we wear, so come as you!

Coffee – During this Covid season we are not serving coffee at the cafe, but you are more than welcome to bring your own coffee into the worship service if you like.

Kids – As we phase in-person ministries back in, stay tuned for more info on Kids ministries.

Music – We usually start off the service with a handful of worship songs where you can participate.  We have a rotation of worship teams including everyone from teens to seniors.  Usually we have a full band with drums, bass, piano, keys, acoustic guitars, electric guitars and vocals – and include worship songs by artists like Crowder, Chris Tomlin, Elevation Worship, Bethel, Hillsong, Phil Wickham and Jesus Culture to name a few.  Want to get familiar with the songs?  Check out the Music page under Resources.

Prayer – We love taking time in our service to pray. This often looks like a time of guided prayer during the service where we pray for other churches/ministries in our community as well as our International Workers around the world.

Giving – We view giving as part of our worship.  We give because God has called us to be generous with each other out of a thankful heart because He has been ultimately generous to us.  Our giving helps fund ministries here in Morden and our workers around the world.

Message – Our aim is to teach the truth of the Bible, challenging us to live more like Jesus in our world today: loving God, loving others, taking care of those in need,  and bringing the good news of God’s love and forgiveness to the places it is needed most.

Prayer Team – After each service the auditorium is available to be a space for prayer. That could look like you praying with a person near you, or praying with on of our Prayer Team volunteers.

Hang Out – Don’t rush off! Stick around in the lobby and connect with each other. Get to know someone new or find out how you can get plugged into things like Life Groups or Student Ministries.
