Calling on Everyone

"I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will carry it to completion until the day of Jesus Christ." (Phillippians 1:6) MCCLV's Board of Directors is calling on everyone of the MCCLV Community to be in prayer for the Spirit's guidance and an awareness of God's abundance. Since the beginning of the pandemic, MCCLV finds itself in a budget deficit during most months. In light of a reduced income, in the coming weeks the Board will be determining ways the church may remain financially solvent. We ask everyone to sincerely pray that the Lord will give the congregation discernment and energy as we seek to be good stewards of our finances so that MCCLV's vital ministry may continue in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. Of course, we ask that all members and friends of MCCLV prayerfully consider what they may financially contribute (donations may be made at this link:

Praise God for your willingness to pray and respond as God calls. 

Your Board of Directors,
Jamie Balliet (Stewardship Chair)
Bob Daley (not pictured, Property)
Lisa Engle (Fundraising Chair)
Rev. Goudy (Pastor/Moderator)
Jim Harbst (Vice Moderator)
Bonnie Keeler (Treasurer)
Brenda Kern (Clerk)
