December 3rd - Grace Miller School Christmas Bazaar in Bealeton. We will be providing free gift wrapping as a community service. Many children buy presents for parents and other family members at this event and our gift wrapping helps keep their selections secret. It is a good time to share the Good News about our Church and MCA! Kanoa Ratliff is the coordinator for this event.
 
Apple Fest 2017 was September 30th! Another great success for MCA & MCoB working together.
 
Hurricane Disaster Relief:
What Our Church is doing to help -
Children's Disaster Services - a Church of the Brethren program with assistance from the Church of God has been on the scene in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. Children's Disaster Service also was involved in the interagency response to the Las Vegas Shooting incident and the California Wildfires events. CDS provides families with Child Care while they are applying for FEMA assistance, are at shelters, and they help with the emotional trauma of the disaster on children. Our inter-denominational partner, Church World Service, and Brethren Disaster Ministries will continue to ship many Clean-up Bucket kits, School Supply kits, and Hygiene kits to help with all affected areas. Our congregation is assembled about 75 of these kits as part of our Homecoming Celebration on September 16th. To find out how you can help with any of our disaster ministry, please contact the Church Office at (540) 439-3016 or call Pastor Tim Monn at (540) 905-2182. Oh, and please pray for everyone touched by the effects of these disasters, they need your compassion and God's help. Rebuilding teams are just beginning to be involved at the Hurricane sites. Pray and help by supporting our disaster ministries.
