MWMC This Week – April 21, 2024

April 21, 2024Let’s Revitalize, Milliken!

13 This is how we know that we live in Him and He in us: He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. -1 John 4:13-16

Kitchen Grand Reopening!  

We are excited to announce our church kitchen project is now complete!  We are so thankful for this answer to our prayers!  In thanksgiving, we will officially bless the new kitchen TODAY, immediately following the worship service.  As is our custom, we will have a special fellowship to celebrate.

Thank you to all who worked hard in seeing this project through to completion, and a special thanks goes to our Social Committee who donated a brand new stove to this project.  To God be all the glory!

New students are welcomed, and Dr. Joan Chung will be our Chinese Language teacher teaching us Mandarin.  If you are interested and would like to join, please reach out to Pastor Aza or Bro.

GenNow Outreach Event – Saturday, July 13, 2024

Save The Date! Milliken will be hosting an Outreach event to our community on Saturday, July 13, 2024.  The purpose is to connect with the people in our community that will be spearheaded by Generation Now (our children, youth and young adults).  We will need several volunteers to help plan and prepare for this event.  Please see Pastor Aza or Pastor Eddie if you would like to sign up to help.

Lead “Family” Open Invitation

As the past year has unbelievably come to a close, we need a new round of “Leading Families” for our Family Sundays. As you might have noticed, we are looking for family units, meaning you may not have to be related by blood, but by association, also. Even if you have participated before, we welcome your participation. Please contact Pastor Stephen to let him know your availability so that we can plan for 2024.

First Series for 2024: Revitalization

We encourage our families to go further for 2024 in revitalizing our faith, our families, and our church. Visit our Revitalization Resource Page at

Worship Arts Team – We Want Your Help!

Have you been looking for a way to serve?  Our Worship Arts team needs you!  We are looking for servant leaders who are willing to serve on our Sunday Morning Worship  and Audio Visual Teams.  If you have the ability to sing, play an instrument (any instrument), or would like to learn how to serve in the Sound booth to learn various skills including sound board training, video/camera operation and working with Worship Tools to present words and scripture on the screen for worship service, please see Pastor Aza or Brother Chris.

Here are 3 reasons why you should join:

  1. A place to develop your gifts and be equipped to serve.
  2. Wonderful team of believers who support each other and pray for each other.
  3. Youth Alert! If you are looking to gain credits toward your volunteer service, this is a great way for you to earn those credits!

Weekday Podcast: 4:19 Fisher of People

Prayer Requests

Our Prayer group is asking everyone who has prayer needs to put their requests in the prayer request box so that they will be remembered in our weekly prayer meeting. We are here to pray with you and for you. May the Lord encourage you to bring your requests to his alter in Jesus name.
