As part of the rotation of local churches offering a worship service for the residents of The Homeplace, Midway Christian hosts one every other month - on the fourth Sunday in January, March, May, July, September, and November.
2017 Summer Series
June 13 - August 8, 2017
"Over the past fifteen years, Pixar has produced a remarkable
body of work - films that speak in fresh terms about the reality
of life and the complexities of the human heart - and made us
laugh while doing so. These films are more than children's
fare; they are the closest thing we have to modern-day
folktales. And like many great folktales, Pixar uses monsters, fish, toys and other fantastical characters
to touch winsomely on universal themes.
For Pixar, what makes a good story is character development. Rather than the dramatic events themselves,
the characters drive the plot, as they are changed by who and what they encounter. Their
adventures, while always entertaining, serve more as interruptions in the protagonists' lives. Every
Pixar movie features characters who are acted upon and transformed by some external force or event.
So, it should come as no surprise that what Pixar does best is tell great stories that offer instruction on
virtuous living, just like our very own Bible does for us as people of faith.
Think of some of the stories found within our Bible: Adam and Eve, Abraham, Jacob, the disciples!
Think of how Jesus engaged people through the parables. He didn't get all preachy on them. Instead,
he told them a story that had deeper meaning. The stories found within our Bible are stories that we
can still relate to in our own lives…"
Join us in Fellowship Hall on Tuesday evenings to watch these Pixar movies together:
June 13: Wall-E
June 10: The Incredibles
June 27: Up!
July 18: Monsters, Inc.
July 25: Cars
August 8: Toy Story
August 13, 2017
The Installation of Officers for our church year 2017-2019 will be on Sunday, August 13. This is an important day within the life of our congregation as we lift up
those who have embraced God's call to lead us as people of faith and affirm their gifts as leaders.
Thanks once again to all who have accepted positions of leadership within Midway Christian Church.
