Virtual Candle Lighting Service
Emmanuel: Worship in Scripture and Song, our virtual candle lighting worship service was held on December 13th at 10:30 A.M. Various scriptures were read by Mt. Calvary's associate ministers and musical selections of Oh Come, All Ye Faithful, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem, Silent Night and Oh Holy Night were played by the Music Ministry. Pastor Stowers' lighting of The Christ Candle and his sermon "A Great Light", reminded us that the light of Jesus shines in our soul and it is a light that never grows dim.
MCBC Celebrates 120th Church Anniversary
Mt. Calvary Baptist Church celebrated its 120th Church Anniversary on Sunday, November 1st. Sister Gwen Mayfield walked us through the church history with a video presentation and then presented to Pastor Stowers a commemorative plaque with the names of the seven women who organized the church in 1900. Sister Lisa Stowers prepared slides showing MCBC members and events through the ages. Pastor Stowers' sermon, The Lord Is God", reminded us where our help comes from. MCBC members were invited to take photos of themselves and their family wearing our MCBC shirts and then email them to the church. Many members showed their MCBC pride celebrating our 120 Years history.
Drive Through Communion
During the Covid-19 health pandemic, Pastor Stowers with the assistance of MCBC Associate Ministers and Deacons, continued to meet the spiritual needs of our members by providing drive through communion each month. Immediately after our live stream video worship, members were invited to drive through the church parking lot. Pastor Stowers spoke the words of communion to each member as they remembered the Lord's Supper and then ate and drank as Jesus commanded us to do in remembrance of Him. With her mask on, Lady Stowers greeted members as they exited the parking lot.
