Dear All God’s Children MCC Family,
We write to offer an update on our in-person and virtual worship options in this season of record-setting COVID transmission in the Minneapolis area. At the time of this writing, the COVID levels in Minneapolis and surrounding communities continue to rise. Like all of you, we prayed–and are praying–for better news.
After lengthy discussion and reflection, we have made the determination to suspend in-person worship for the remainder of January. At the beginning of February, we will make a decision regarding whether to extend that further or return to in-person worship. Watch the weekly email blast and our website for updates.
Our services will continue to be livestreamed on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM on both our Facebook and YouTube pages. We will be continuing our Worship Series “God is Holding Your Life” which is even more relevant as we make these adjustments. The same guest preachers will be preaching each Sunday.
We continue to remind people to get vaccinated, wear masks, maintain social distancing, wash hands, and if for any reason display any symptoms or develop a fever, be tested immediately.
As always, we are doing our best to serve the needs of everyone in our church community. If you have any questions or feedback, we welcome you to reach out to us. All you need to do is email us directly at [email protected]
We thank you for your love and unwavering support of one another during these last two years. Hang in there. Our faith reminds us that God is holding us through each and every hardship we face in life. Be sure to reach out and check on your church friends as several members of our church have contracted this new, more contagious strain.
With Love and Hope for the Future,
Your All God’s Children MCC Board of Directors
Join us in-person every Sunday morning at 10 am.
The Sunday Morning Worship Experience (10 am) is dynamic, energetic, and kinetic. Because our diverse congregation comes from a wide range of backgrounds and religious traditions, our Sunday worship service reflects this diversity in style, music, and liturgy. The worship service is full of life, meaning, spirit, and community. Talented music ministry is as diverse as our congregation. We have a full band/orchestra, energetic Praise Team, and chancel choir creating a beautiful music ministry both contemporary and traditional. We believe our music ministry is a spiritual experience, encouraging everyone to participate.
At every worship service, we offer Holy Communion. All are welcome to receive at our table, regardless of what you believe, or if you believe anything at all. A true OPEN communion table. We integrate technology into all aspects of worship, including use of video and a state-of-the-art sound system. AGC has a historical sanctuary with contemporary infrastructure. The best of all possible worlds.
Join us online every Sunday morning at 10 am.
How to Prepare for Online Worship
Prepare your Bread and Juice
We will break the bread and drink the cup together to participate in communion (If you feel moved to substitute other items that can symbolize the bread and the cup for you, this is the time to make yourself feel comfortable).
Navigate to Facebook or YouTube
Find the All God’s Children Facebook or YouTube page and tune into the live feed. Early Bird Preparation: get notified when AGC is live, go to the All God’s Children Facebook page and tap “Like” and “Follow” and go to AGC’s YouTube channel and tap subscribe.
Participate in the Celebration
Use the chat feature to respond however the Spirit moves you. Interact with what you are seeing, hearing, and experiencing. Share your love with the AGC family! Most importantly, have some fun! You know the old saying “Dance like no one is watching?” Now is your chance! Get up, move, celebrate.
Request and Offer Your Prayers
We will be offering Prayers of the People following the sermon. Use the chat to share your prayers and prayer requests during this moment in real time and they will be recognized and honored.
Our Offertory and Tithing
All God’s Children Metropolitan Community Church relies solely on the contributions that we give to provide for the work of God in our community. AGCMCC does not receive any outside financial assistance to bring us this ministry. Please, do give generously as we continue to be a Beacon of Hope to all God’s children. Visit: agcmcc.org/donate or try out text to give. Text the amount you’d like to give to: 612-276-5040, register, and give.
Invite Friends and Family
It is now easier than ever to share the message of All God’s Children Metropolitan Community Church. Once the service has ended the service will become a video for everyone to watch who wasn’t able to attend live. Share that video with your loved ones. Pass on our incredible gift and use this as an opportunity to help someone who could be struggling.
Remember to Love
Our community is love, hold strong to that which is of God. You are of God, no one can take that from you. Accept God’s love and pass it on.
