It is hard to believe we are just three weeks away from Thanksgiving.  MCM has had a very busy fall with a lot happening. Our Night of Hope was a major success and we give God praise for that! Sue Duffield (www.sueduffield.come) and her husband Jeff (www.jeffduffield.com) were AMAZING! The food was delicious and the testimonies shared were powerful. We thank God for a wonderful evening. Our director of fundraising, Bert Prentice is hard at work and we appreciate all of his efforts on behalf of MCM.

Our Fall Fest provided a fun and safe environment for over 100 children and adults. MCM had inflatables, games, food and a host of crafts for the kids and everyone loved it!

We are now gearing up for our benefit concert this coming Friday night, November 12th at Grace Church of the Nazarene, (2620 Pennington Bend Road. Nashville, TN 37214.) The concert begins at 7:00 PM and doors open at 6:00 PM. This year’s line up of artists is outstanding! Mike Allen,who you have seen featured on the Gaither Homecoming Videos and concerts, McMillan and Life, (www.mcmillanandlife.com) a fresh, energetic trio comprised of husband and wife Jimmy and Liz McMillan and new comer Devin Brumfield, and award winning family group, The Freemans, (www.the-freemans.com). You will be blessed, encouraged and uplifted during this wonderful night of gospel music. Admission is $5 and a can of food. A generous love offering will also be received. PLEASE come support MCM and bring a friend, too!

Our annual Thanksgiving Meal is just around the corner. Thursday, November 25 MCM will fill with hundreds of families who will enjoy a special meal and time of thanksgiving together. Contact Jack Myers, jackmcmd@aol.com or 310-8463  if you would like to donate or volunteer for this event.

Our annual Christmas Party for Kids is also around the corner- Saturday, December 18th MCM will host a few hundred children for a very special day. The children will sing songs, hear the Christmas Story, receive special treats, get their picture with Santa and, receive presents! Our special guests this year is the Hampel Family Circus, (www.hampelsmagic.com) an extremely talented, funny and entertaining family from Illinois. They will no doubt entertain and minister to the children and their families. If you would like to volunteer or donate toys, please contact us as soon as possible. We’d love to have you take part in this awesome day!

We received some good news this week: MCM has been approved as a Donor Choice agency for the United Way! SO, if your employer has a giving campaign, you may choose to donate any portion you so desire from your paycheck, pre-tax to MCM! YAY! Our code is 4057. That is all you need when you fill out your Giving Matters Campaign info. We do hope you will consider MCM as your donor choice agency.

We once again thank all of our friends for your support and love shown to MCM. This is our busiest time of year and we are loving it and thankful God has allowed us to serve Him through “Healing the City, One Life at a Time.”

Blessings,

Jennifer Wilkerson

Director of Community Relations
