Dear Mountain View,
    This weekend, January 11 & 12, we are going to introduce you to our MVCC Ballenger Creek Campus Pastor Candidate and his wife, Jermaine and Tammy Keller.
     Jermaine is a graduate of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and has been leading churches since 2005. The search team and elders are excited to present Pastor Jermaine as he preaches in all three services. Then, later on Sunday the 12th from 5-6:30pm, join us for an informal "Meet and Greet" here at the church. Childcare available and light refreshments will be served.

Two weeks after Pastor Jermaine preaches, there will be a vote on his hiring and also for returning elders Albert Chin and Mike Barrett during our Winter State of the Church, January 26, from 6-8:00pm. Everyone is invited, but only members of the church are allowed to vote. If you'd like to become a member of MVCC, email the church at office@mvccfrederick.com. We will also hear an update on our 10-year Vision, Frederick for Christ. Please plan to bring a dish to share during a potluck dinner. Last names starting A-L main dish, M-S a side, and T-Z bring desserts. Childcare is available through age 5.
