Love Ft. Collins: Sharing Hope

As followers of Jesus we are called to bring and participate in the Kingdom of God.  This looks like blessing the world around us and sharing hope and restoration.  We are doing this as a community of faith in a tangible way by joining in Sharing Hope on August 25th.

Sharing Hope” is the overarching term used to describe the collaborative effort between the faith community, businesses, non-profit organizations, city government, medical community and schools to meet the needs of and empower those caught in the trap of poverty within Fort Collins and the surrounding region. For more specific information about what will happen on August 25th visit their website here.

Mill City Church has the opportunity to participate in this city-wide event in a significant way.  We will be distributing fliers and a small bag of fruit door to door to invite our honored guests to the event.  We will do this in three to four areas of the city where the need has been identified to be the greatest. 

Flier distribution will happen on three Saturday mornings: July 21, August 4, and August 18.  We will be walking these areas between 9am and noon. Lunch will be provided afterward.

You can sign up for any or all Saturdays azt the Welcome Counter on Sunday mornings or by emailing Grant and Carly Barron at: grantbarron@me.com

Let's join together and serve the least and the last of our city in the name of Jesus!

Current Series: STORY

Aproach makes all the difference!  If we approach something from the wrong premise then everything that follows is going to be off.  For example, if we approach playing football like it is a basketball game then it will not matter how well we play basketball; we are going to miss all that comes with playing football.

The same is true of the Bible.  How we appraoch this book is key.  If it is a good book in line with many other "good" books then we will treat it a certain way.  If it is a book of rules we will deal with it another way.  So, what if the Bible is the story of God? What if it is not just a collection of Sunday school stories but a cohesive and timeless story. What does that mean to us today?

Join the conversation. Join the story!

WHEN: Thursday, July 12th at 7:30PM

WHERE: Lyric Cinema Cafe (300 E. Mountain Avenue)

Help get the film Blue Like Jazz, based on the best selling book by Donald Miller, a showing in Ft. Collins.  This film has been 4+ years in the making.  In 2010 production was put on hold indefinitely due to lack of funding.

Middle and High School Students: Desperation 2012

Attention all middle and high school students! At Mill City Church we believe it is vital that young people grow in their understanding of God and cultivate a passion to follow Jesus all of their lives.

As an investment to this end, Mill City is taking a group of students to the Desperation Conference in Colorado Springs, July 11-13. Desperation is a youth movement for local churches empowering the next generation to willingly spend their lives in desperate pursuit of God.  These two and a half days are packed full of times of worship, teaching, and prayer. Check out the Desperation website and the video below for an idea of what to expect.

The cost is only $65 for transportation, lodging, registration and meals. For more details email Grant and Carly Barron at: grantbarron@me.com  To register click here. You don't want to miss it!

baby Dedication: Livingston Barron

Congratulations Grant and Carly! What beutiful daughter and what a privilege to be a part of her dedication!  We stand with you as you point her toward Jesus!

We dedicate babies out a heart of gratefulness to God, recognizing that children are a gift from Him, much like Hannah dedicated her son Samuel in I Samuel 1:26-28. Baby dedications happen at Mill City on the second Sunday of every month. To schedule a dedication email: tompkins@millcitychurch.org.
