2020 VIBRANT VISION - This year The Message Center is focusing on clearly seeing the vision for our church. We desire to be a church that is alive, serving a living God, bringing a message of life to the world. Please continue to pray with us and for us as we make internal changes and receive the necessary corrections to our vision, so that we may continue loving, serving, and growing.


Season of Sacrifice - Every January marks the beginning of our Season of Sacrifice. We start each year in a time of dedicating ourselves to our God. The weekly (M-F) sacrifices are listed:

Week 1 (Jan 6-10) Media - No secular TV/movies/YouTube, video games

Week 2 (Jan 13-17) Ministry - Pay it forward & no gossip/evil talk
Week 3 (Jan 20-24) Music - No secular music, radio, Pandora
Week 4 (Jan 27-31) Meals - Fasting daily until (12pm, 3pm or 6pm)


Covenant Sunday - Each year we culminate our Season of Sacrifice with Covenant Sunday. We strip away all of the instruments and media, and engage in a more simplistic congregational worship. Our clergy will be in vestments. Each member is asked to give a sacrificial First Fruits Offering.


Annual Business Meeting - This year our meeting will take place on Tuesday, February 4. This will be a closed door meeting for members only; so Bible Study is canceled for that evening and will resume the following Tuesday, February 11.


Membership Update Forms - It’s that time of year, again. Each member is asked to fill out a membership form so that we can update our database with your current information.


5am Prayer - 5am Prayer for the year kicks off on Monday, January 6. We will continue with our virtual 5am Prayer format via Zoom. Please check the MC App or The Message Center Facebook Page Sunday night for the Meeting ID.


Prayer Line - Mother Jones leads our prayer line every 3rd Saturday at 9am. Call (605) 475-6150, access code 213689. This month ONLY, prayer will start at 8am to accommodate the MTI course.


Table Fellowship - This month Table Fellowship & Communion take place on Sunday, January 12 immediately after worship.


Ministry Training Institute (MTI) - MTI-102 resumes on Saturday, January 18. Class starts promptly at 10am, plan to arrive early. The cost is $12/course or $120 for the entire program.


Discipleship - New to the church? Want to begin (or renew) your journey of following Christ. Discipleship classes are held on 2nd and 4th Sundays immediately after worship. See Elder Roneshia Henry for more information.


Church App - Download the new MC church app today. Visit the App Store or Google Play, download the “Tithe.ly Church App” (blue). Install and open the app. Search for “The Message Center” and you’re all set. You can set up your mobile giving right in the app if you like.
