AGM 2023

Saturday, 25 February 2023 the MCF will be hosting the Annual General Meeting (AGM).  Time TBD.  We will meet using the teleconferencing application called “ZOOM”. All members are invited to join us and if you are not a member yet support the MCF and receive this newsletter, you are most welcomed to join us as well. 

It is crucial that members attend the AGM and to help us ensure that the AGM proceeds smoothly,  pre-registration for attending is required no later than 24 Feb at 4:00 pm EST.  We will send everyone the zoom connection information Friday evening. Please reply to the MCF office. We do need your correct email address to be sure you can log in on Saturday 25 February, 2023. 

For the best experience please download the application to whichever device you will use to connect to the AGM. You should likely use a device that will permit you a viewing screen larger than a smart phone. There may be documents and power point viewing necessary during this meeting.  You can access the application either through your device’s application functionality or at this web-site – https://zoom.us/signup.

We know that He can do infinitely more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, so to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus in this generation and all those that are to come.  Blessings on you, chat with you soon. 

Sharing Life, Hope and Jesus on Alpha

It’s time to consider whom to invite to our next Alpha course. Registration is underway and we would love for you to join us on the online Alpha course the MCF is offering this winter.

The Alpha course is an excellent tool we use in accomplishing the core mission of the MCF, “to bring the gospel to the Military Community”.

If you haven’t been on an Alpha course, please consider joining us this February.  If you have been on the course, then talk to your military community friend or family member about joining us, we are using the online platform and there is plenty of room for everyone.

Watch the ‘trailer‘ then get out there and invite (virtually) your colleagues, your friends and your family, and register soon for the  MCF Alpha course. The experience will change them and you…forever

Are you ready to join us, is someone you know ready for an extraordinary life change? Here are the coordinates for the group:

“Sharing life, hope and Jesus on Alpha in 2022 ” 

Sessions have started and we are excited to explore with friends, family and many the experience of seeing first-hand the work of the Holy Spirit in salvation. This encouragement helps the entire military community recapture the joy of evangelism. The MCF is offering an online Alpha where people bring their friends for a conversation about life, faith and Jesus.

Are your friends warm and hospitable… but resistant to gospel conversations?
In this D Lab our speaker will address this dilemma with answers she has been learning from God and from her neighbors:How do I deal with repeated disappointment with my friends’ response to the gospel – and still remain “joyfully expectant”? How do I learn to discern what God is doing and not take offence at what He’s (apparently) not doing?How can I learn to “above all, trust in the slow work of God”?
Yes, I want to ignite my ministry! Register Now!

ALPHA 2022 New Year’s SESSION

I am looking forward to what the Lord has determined that the MCF will be involved in the New Year.

2022 we will offer our sixth online Alpha Course.
Sunday, 16 January online 7:00 pm EST

I love this course as it presents the fundamentals of the Christian faith in an easy to understand yet sufficiently profound way that participants have all that they need to become followers of Jesus.  And for those who already know Him, their faith will be steeled.

The MCF’s core mission, the reason that we exist, is to bring the gospel to the Military community at home and abroad. The Alpha course is an excellent tool to use in accomplishing that mission.

If you haven’t been on an Alpha course, please consider joining us or some other Alpha course in your local setting.  If you have been on the course, then talk to your military community friend or family member about joining us on Alpha this fall.

Meet Christina, she accepted a friend’s invitation to our Alpha online course in early 2021.  There was plenty of time for great discussions on different topics and questions.  

Christina continues to participate because of the wonderful relationships that developed during Alpha and now has joined our team as a volunteer.  

Get out there and invite (virtually) your bud, your bro, your sis, your mom, your… and register for the MCF Alpha course. The experience will change them and you…forever.

Are you ready to join us, here are the coordinates for the group:
