MCBC Cares: Donates Eyeglasses to Lions Club
Before the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Social Action Ministry began to accept used prescription eyeglasses and readers to donate to the Lions Club. The project was put on hold for 2 years due to Pandemic guidelines. When Pastor Stowers began worship in the sanctuary each Sunday beginning May 2022, The Social Action Ministry received permission to complete the project. The Lions Recycle For Sight Program donates glasses to many living in low and middle income countries who lack basic access to eye care services. These useable glasses will correct refractive errors and give new life to those with vision difficulties requiring eyeglasses. Thank you MCBC Family for donating the following: Eyeglasses/Readers - 135, Prescription Shades - 10, Shades - 15, Eye Glass Cases/Covers - 101. Your love and generosity is outstanding!!! MCBC CARES
MCBC Cares: Purses of Love and Tote Bags
The Social Action Ministry, Women of Mt. Calvary and Support Ministries teamed up to provide tote bags of love to women in metro Atlanta shelters. Beautiful red tote bags (provided by the church) were fitted with a heart tag carrying the caption “Mercy, Peace and Love be yours in abundance”.
A total of 34 tote bags were filled with travel and regular size toiletries, masks, personal care items, pieces of jewelry and a purse. The pandemic has increased the need for shelters, and we were happy to provide these tokens of love as follows:
Beloved Atlanta 12
Serenity House 12
Janie and Ida’s House of Hope 10
City of Refuge 35 (only MCBC tote bags and masks)
Thanks to all who provided purses, money, other items, and the help assembling our bags.
MCBC Celebrates 121st Church Anniversary
Mount Calvary celebrated its 121st Church Anniversary on Sunday, November 21st. The 10:30 AM worship service was broadcasted live via our church Facebook page. It was also the occasion when members were able to worship in person in the church sanctuary. Pastor Stowers opened up the sanctuary to a limited amount of seating after following all Covid 19 safety precautions established by the Reentry Committee. The Church History Ministry invited members to share their fondest memories of why they worship at Mt. Calvary via video. Different members got a chance to speak via video each Sunday in November during worship. We also learned about the history of Mt. Calvary and learned about the many ministries that have served or are now serving the Adamsville community. Pastor Stowers' sermon "Assurance For The Journey" Psalm 121:1-3, reminded us that God has been and will continue to be with us.
Members who have achieved 50 years of church membership were also recognized. We are happy that our very own Lady Wanda Stowers has achieved this honor along with Emma Bolton, Geraldine McKnight, Mae Echols, Mildred Taylor, and Deacon Willie Russell.
