Welcome to Milliken Church!
The word “Advent” comes from the Latin word that means coming or arrival. For centuries the Church has celebrated the four-week Advent season by lighting candles in a wreath and reflecting on the coming of Jesus as told in Scripture. The circle of the wreath represents God’s never-ending love for us, the evergreens represent Christ’s gift of eternal life and the candles announce Jesus as the Light of the World.
“He Has Come for Us (God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen)”
“It Came Upon A Midnight Clear”
“Here I am To Worship”

Poinsettias As is our custom, we hope to place an order for Poinsettias in loving memory or our MWMC family members who have gone on to be with the Lord. If you would like to have one ordered, please leave a message on the church phone for us to take an account of how many orders need to be placed.
Pastoral Survey The LBA plans to resume the Pastoral Search and are looking to you for feedback on what you, the members of Milliken Church are looking for in a Senior Pastor. A survey has gone out by email and is also available on our website. Please have this survey completed and submitted by Tuesday, Dec. 15.
Offering Envelopes Offering envelopes #1-130 for 2021 are now available and ready for pick up. If you would like to make arrangements, please call the church to schedule a time during office hours to collect your set.
Communion Service Sunday, December 20, we will have our last communion service of the year. We invite you to partake in the holy sacraments, immediately following the morning message of our Worship Service. Just as we did during our Thanksgiving service, we ask you to prepare your own elements of bread and juice at home, and reserve a consecrated space where you plan to partake of the elements. We look forward to having you join us then.
