Its Time To Donate To Hamilton Yard Sale

It's that time of year again to "Spring Clean" and start setting aside gently used items for this year's Hamilton School Yard Sale. Containers both here at MCC and Hamilton School have arrived and are now available to receive donations 9-3 M-F and Sunday at MCC 8-noon.  A good rule-of-thumb is "donations should be of the quality that you would give to your family or neighbors" - the kind of family and neighbors you LIKE.  :-) There is also a need for volunteers to help us set-up on Thursday, May 5 and run and clean up on the days of the sale (Fri. & Sat. May 6 and 7 ). Please visit the table in the lobby to sign up.

Explorer's Course - Sunday April 24th At 9am

The Explorer's course is a highly informative and fun way to get better acquainted with our church, its beliefs, history, denomination and ministries. It is the most comprehensive orientation experience we offer. This course is also one of the requirements for voting membership in our church. Please register online. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email Pastor Jeff.

"Hope Heals" - A Women's Outreach

Wed, May 4, noon to 1:30 pm at Hillside Church in Corte Madera.  Katherine Wolf shared her story at the IF Gathering this year, and now she and her husband Jay are coming to Marin to share about her miraculous recovery from a massive brain stroke, and how hope can heal us where we are most broken.  Save the date, bring a friend, and RSVP to Linda Mazzariello. (Check out this short video of Katherine's story.)

Monthly Financial Update

Continued thanks to all of you who so generously have a plan to give to the church you love. Fiscal year-to-date tithes and offerings for the period 7/1/15 – 03/31/16 of $1,397,596 is $112,517 or 8.8% ahead of budget.  This puts us in a strong financial position to fund our full ministry vision for this year!  And it helps us to envision and plan for next fiscal year's ministry plan.
