We Sold Our Van…
So there’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that our church website is getting a lot of hits! The bad news is that some of those hits are due to a disappointing picture that is circulating on the internet. When I first saw the picture my face looked like Macaulay Culkin’s character in home alone…
So here’s what happened: Early in 2021 we sold one of our church vans, however we did not remove our church’s name from the van before selling it (which is a mistake that we will not make again – “Oof” if you’re under 30 – “D’oh!” if you’re over 30). The current owner, who has no connection to our church, has placed a bumper sticker on the van that is distasteful to say the least. I have personally reached out to the buyer to see if they will kindly remove this sticker from the van with our name on it or allow us to remove our name from the van.
If you are a praying person, would you be so kind as to pray for us as we seek to resolve this situation? Regrettably, the picture is on the internet so there’s nothing we will be able to do about further circulation. Sadly, people have enough churches out there that present a poor picture of our God; at Miamitown Church of Christ we work hard to make sure that we do our best to present a good picture. It is extremely unfortunate that this has happened.
I have been the Preaching Minister for 16 years at this church and I can assure you that the message on this bumper sticker (or any message of the like) does not reflect what we teach and practice here at our church. Don’t just take my word on that, come and see for yourself! You are welcome to join us for a worship service on any given Sunday. Feel the friendliness of what church should feel like, be inspired and challenged by God’s Word, and connect with God through singing or listening to the worship songs. We also have a number of fun events through the year that we would love to have you share in with us! Feel free to dress however you feel most comfortable.
If you have children, we have an excellent children’s ministry, “MCC KiDS.” It is safe, secure, and fun. If you have teens we have something for them also! Visit our “MCC Students” page to see the growing opportunities we are building.
You can call the office, email a church staff member or the Elders with any questions you might have, or just stop by on a Sunday morning!
See you Sunday,
