Hey Church Family,  We have a lot to communicate regarding where we landed with our finances in 2020, and we want to give a snapshot of our financial picture moving forward.

Sunday Morning In-Person Expectations.

Please help us by continuing to be cautious and considerate during the pandemic.  We are still meeting in person this Sunday! Except this time, there is no need for adults to register before you come! Just show up on Sunday at 9 or 11 am, and we’ll have a spot ready for you.  We have spread out 250 chairs in the north auditorium which is under 25% capacity.  We will have overflow capacity in the south auditorium if the chairs…

Sunday Services Update

I feel like Captain Obvious here in mentioning that it has been another hard couple of weeks in the midst of a pretty terrible year. But I want to start off by saying that we are praying for you, we love you, and most importantly, Jesus loves you. I find great comfort in Jesus’ words in Matthew 11:28-30 . . . Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take My yoke…

We are limiting each service the next two weeks to 100 people in each service so please RSVP if you would like to attend! We will likely have to turn people away at the door if the service is full. Just in the past week, things have changed…

Regathering Update 7.14.2020

Hey there, Morning Star Family!  RSVP FOR IN-PERSON SERVICE HERE. We are excited to begin regathering in person for both our 9 am and 11 am services! We are all aware by now that things can change rapidly, so we are holding these plans loosely as everything could be revised. We continue to pray and seek the Lord regarding all of these matters, and we ask you to continue praying with us! Thank you for your patience and support as…

Church Statement

Morning Star Community Church wants to be absolutely clear that we condemn all acts of racial injustice as we firmly hold the biblical truth that racism is sin and breaks the heart of God. Racial injustice in any form is not acceptable behavior. We believe that race issues are gospel issues and that the Church has an opportunity to lead a watching world in reconciliation through the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ.  It is evident that long-standing and deep hurt…

Reopening Update 5-21-20

Dear Morning Star family, It has been said many times, but we can’t say it often enough: We miss you and love you very much. Our prayers for you continue to be fervent and consistent as we seek to lead you to pursue a Jesus-first life. As you can imagine, we’re getting lots of inquiries about our future plans. Pastor Scott shared about the framework for regathering in a recent service, and if you’d like to hear what he said,…
