Christmas Party – Dec 17th
We are looking forward to a fun evening around the UTX celebrating Christmas!  We will be hosting a Christmas Party for all of our Middle School and High School students on December 17th, 6:00 pm!  
 
We would like to invite all of our students to bring a gift to be used for a gift passing game.  Gifts should be no more than $10-15 in value, gender-less in nature (good for either male or female), and gift cards are not permitted.  Be creative, think outside the box, and please do not bring gag gifts.
 
We will be eating a “Party Sub” for dinner.  We will be asking girls to bring chips or cookies and boys to bring a 2-liter drink.   Parents are welcome to also send desserts, and join the party with us!!
 
 
Progressive Night of Fun –

Wednesday, Dec 27th

We will be hosting a very fun night of food and activities!  We will be meeting at the UTX at 6:00 pm, then going multiple places around Madison for a lot of fun, activities, food, and group bonding!   
 
This activity is for all Middle School and High School Students, along with any adults who would like to attend!   
 
If you would like to host a leg of this night, please let Jeremy know…the plans are currently being organized! 
 
 
Winter Wonderland Family Activities!  
We have planned some great activities for January for the whole family…Children, Teens, Parents, etc
 
  • January 13th – we will be taking a group to tube down some snow covered hills at the Perfect North Slopes!  The cost per person to unlimited tube is $20.  
 
  • January 21st – we will be taking a group to ice skate at the Lexington Ice Arena!  The cost per person to skate will be $10 for 11 year and older.   
 
We hope you will be able to attend at least one of these great adventures!
 
 
Habitat for Humanity –
 There are 3 great ways you can help with Habitat for Humanity!
 

Financially…

We have begun a “Empty Envelope Drive” to help Habitat build the latest house in Richmond.  Here is how you can help…
  • Take an envelope off the bulletin board that is located in the basement. There is no limit to the amount of envelopes one person can pick up!
  • Fill the envelope with the designated dollar amount 
    • cash or check, payable to MHCC
    • donations can also be accepted electronically, please note: Habitat envelope drive
    • Return the envelope to the church by Nov 19th.  Envelopes can placed in the offering.  Please, DO NOT RETURN FILLED ENVELOPES TO THE BULLETIN BOARD.  
      If Every Envelope is Returned with the designated amounts…we will raise over $6,000 for Habitat!!  
Physically…
We are working on setting up dates in January to finish the house that we have started building in September.
 
Just a Reminder… 
All volunteers must be 13 years old and older.  Adults 18 years and older are allowed to use power tools, while students age 13-18 are not permitted to use power tools.  If you are physically unable to serve on this project, donations of food or drink will be much appreciated during times of construction.  The most important thing anyone can do throughout this project is to pray for the process, those working and especially the family whom the home is being constructed.
 
Prayerfully…
Please add this project to your daily prayer time! There are so many people working on this project, so many lives trying to be a blessing, and a family of 4 receiving the benefits of everyone’s hard work!  Ask God to guide those that are guiding the decisions on this home, those that are physically working on this home, and those that are raising funds for this project!  
 
We are encouraging everyone in our church family to participate in assisting Habitat in one of these fantastic ways!  There is a family of 4 (single mother, 3 children) that are needing assistance, will we be the ones to answer the call in our community?
 
 
 
 
2017-2018 Theme
 
 
In today’s world, there are so many ways that people are looking for help! People turn to the internet, their friends, adults, and other places for help in all kinds of situations.
 
 
In today’s world, being real, genuine, honest, transparent and “on the level” is extremely important. The Apostle Paul urges the members of the Thessalonian church to be pure and devoted to God, with a strong spirit, soul and body. There are no short cuts to follow God and faking it is not an option.
 
What if someone wrote a book that dealt with everything from loving others, dating, family matters, giving, humanity, self-control, and many other subjects?  The Bible was written as a “How-To Manual” to help everyone survive their earthly journey so as to enjoy a heavenly destination!
 

Teen Ministry Flyer (2017-2018)

 
 
Some Great Information about our Teen Ministry:
The Teenagers at the Madison Hills grow together, learn together, love God together, worship together, and live life together.  Regardless if a teen is in Middle School (6th-8th grade) or High School (9th-12th grade), he or she will find a comfortable environment to seek God.  Throughout this school year, we will be challenging all our Teens to evaluate their Direction in life and to point their lives towards God.
 
We meet weekly to discover God’s greatness – in the building across the parking lot from the church building (just look for the blue door and blue steps).  With an array of games tables, video screens (large and small), high tables/stools, kitchen, stage and more…our space(s) are very special!

UTX Party Deck

This is a great place to fellowship before or after an event, safely overlook the church parking lot, and enter or exit the UTX/Bridge facility. 
 
(Note:  We also have an handicap accessible door on the other side of the building)
 
 
 

#theWall

In Matthew 7:7, Jesus begins to wind down his sermon on the Mount with an encouragement for his followers… 

“Ask and it will be given to you; Seek and you will find; Knock and the door will be opened to you.”  

We have set aside a place where our Teens can  

  • “Ask” God to take care of a prayer request!
  • “Seek” encouragement from our group…something big is coming and fans would be great (sporting event, special occasion, etc)!
  • “Knock” a beat that the group just needs to hear!  This is opportunity to post a favorite scripture, blessing, answered prayer, etc. for the group to see!
