Sunday's BulletinDid you know that you can see this Sunday’s bulletin online?
If you can’t make it to Imani MCC to worship one Sunday, please download the Worship Bulletin from the website and pray for us during the service.

And let’s say you are one of our jubilant singers in the choir or the congregation, and you want to make sure you have brushed up on the words for this Sunday’s songs. They are in the bulletin, and you can download it every week.

It’s available at this link: www.imanimcc.org/resources/worship-bulletins.html.

Usually by Thursday afternoon of each week, we print the Worship Bulletins for Sunday. They are usually printed on both sides of a legal size sheet of paper and folded in thirds. They are printed in full color. Then, they are uploaded onto the website. Don’t miss a week of worship with Imani MCC.
Help Wanted!
We need a few good and Faithful Ones to help make our ministry more effective. Here are some of the openings:
  • Sound Team Volunteers
  • Cleaning Crew
  • Musicians: singers, piano, bass, guitar, sax, kazoo, etc.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities or know someone who might be good in them, please speak with Pastor Marilyn.
