We who are members of the Mother of Christ Church have come to love and embrace MOC as more than a church; it is our church family. But this family is part of a bigger picture; it is part of the whole Body of Christ. As in any family, all the family members need to work together for the good of the family and to help advance the mission of the family. The mission of the Mother of Christ Church family states: "We foster the education of children, evangelization, and service to our neighbors, and ecumenism with surrounding faith Communities. We seek to share generously; our time, talents, and resources on behalf of God’s Kingdom.
So ask yourself what part can I play in this church family's mission? What part of the Body of Christ can I be? Everyone can be a part of the church family mission. Pray for God's guidance and direction. No matter how big or how small, do your part!
"For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit. For the body does not consist of one member but many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body". ...

Stewardship is one of Scripture’s key principles. It challenges us to recognize that everything was created by God and is ultimately owned by God. Humans exist as the managers of these resources.
Our finances are one of the key areas where Christians practice stewardship. Our ability to acquire wealth is a gift given to us by God, and we need to be mindful of how we use these resources to fulfill God’s work to further His kingdom and take care of others.

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
