Valentine's for Veterans 2019
Middle Cross Baptist Church participated again in Valentine's for Veterans again this year.
Finished first week of Valentines for Veterans. This week (January 19) we will finish up making cards, insert letters from children, stuff and seal envelopes. There is no sign-up sheet for today. Anyone who wants to attend, just show up and help with this wonderful project.
Saturday, January 12:
We had lunch afterward the event at Logan's on Hwy. 153. We had a great time!
This is the 40th year for Valentine's for Veterans.
National Day of Prayer 2017
The rain interfered with the crowd size for MCBC's participation in the National Day of Prayer, but those who attended were blessed with prayers tapping into God’s wisdom, strength, protection, and peace.
As we prayed for America, whose pledge of allegiance recounts that we are “one nation under God,” and whose currency states that it is “in God we trust,” we prayed to the God who rules over our country.
We also took this time to pray for our country and its leaders, local officials, and first responders. We also gave thanks for all our many blessings.
In addition to our pastors and church members, we had a few people who do not attended our church dropping in to pray, some officials from the Chattanooga fire department, and City Commissioners Jerry Mitchell and Greg Martin (who represent the Hixson area).
Safe Parking at MCBC
This is not exactly a Special Event ... just showing how, when a call for help is given at the church ... this is how it is taken care of by many men at the church.
It was decided that parking on the side of the church by the big ditch might not be safe, so today, April 28, 2017, the problem was solved.
Three free Spring Events April 8, 2017
Saturday April 8 started with an egg decorating at 4 p.m. in the Family Life Center. Kids decorated eggs and had their faces painted.
Then at 6 p.m. the event moved into the sanctuary for a night of gospel bluegrass music. https://www.facebook.com/theresa.keenum/videos/10155244082261602/
Then back to the Family Life Center for soup and sandwiches.
Lookouts ballgame August 20, 2016
Chattanooga's weather has been so dry this past month that nearly everyone was praying for rain. We didn't really want it to rain as members of our church attended the Lookouts ballgame Saturday, August 20. But, rain we got! At least it was not 98 degrees. The wind and rain started just as we got into the ballpark, but no matter, we were under cover and were eating hot dogs and hamburgers. The rain stopped and we watch the Lookouts win.
Free Family Game Night April 15, March for Babies April 30, National Day of Prayer May 5, Armed Forces Day Parade May 6, and Yard Sale July 23
