Run with Mill City: Fort Collins St. Patty’s Day 5k 

Community is something we all long for, it is something we were made for; and, what a better way to become a part of a community than to run together! There is nothing like a 5k (or 3.1mi run) to bond a group of people, so join Team Mill City as we run, together, in the Sharin O’ the Green St. Patty’s day run in Old Town.

The thought of running can be intimidating to a lot of us who have not ran more than a mile since the required high school gym class; but, this run is not about winning, or losing, but about doing something with one another. If you have never dreamt of running more than that high school mile, or if you are an avid runner, we invite you to join us on March 17 as a way to not only support one another, but the community of Fort Collins.

We look forward to talking with you, running with you, and maybe crawling with you. Mill City is a great journey together, and we hope to run through this life with you!

To sign-up please click here and register under the Mill City team. Also, in order to get a free Mill City t-shirt for the race, please email Cherissa at: cherissa@millcitychurch.org no later than Monday, March 12.

Holy is Your Name

This last Sunday we talked about how great our God is! We unpacked the phrase in the Lord's Prayer "Hallowed be your name."  This means God is holy, mysterious and beyond us. I can think of no greater way to catch just a glimpse of what this means than to take a look at God's creation, specifically the universe. Here is just a couple pics and descriptions from this last week.

*There are approximately 250 billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy

*The Milky Way is 1 of an estimated 100 billion galaxies.

First Service!

February 26th, 2012 will always be special date on the Mill City Church calendar as it marks a beautiful step in our journey. After many, many months of praying, planning and preparing we experienced 'lift-off' with our first Sunday morning service! The leading and faithfulness of God has been so evident in these days of culmination and beginning. Thank you to all who participated and celebrated with us. We look forward to all that is ahead!

Current Series: Dear God

Everyone prays.  Before a meal, over our kids at night, for the business deal to come through or for safety on the road.  We even hear "our prayers are with you" on the evening news. So as a follower of Jesus is there anything different about our prayers? Or have the same requests now just been shifted to a new source? Should our prayers be unique?

Join us as we unpack Jesus' teaching on prayer - formally known as The Lord's Prayer.  Whether you have recited these words so many times they have no meaning or you have never seen the point, we will find that they are are more relevant than ever.

Mill City Church: the rest of the story

Over the course of the last two years God has been stirring and whispering into Jossie's and my heart about planting Mill City Church. I love to share what God has done and how the Mill City journey has developed, but don't always get the chance to share the details.  I recently gave a talk at New Life Church in Colorado Springs describing some of the ways God has been unfolding this story. You might enjoy hearing different parts that you may have missed. To hear the talk click here.
