Imani MCC of Durham

a church where, through faith, all can experience and express God's irresistible love through worship, word, oneness, wonder and witness.

We are getting ready for ZOOM!

Pastor Marilyn leads our first Zoom test

We tried an experiment last Wednesday night during the regular Wednesday Night Bible Study time. Our Pastor and several others got on Zoom to see if it could help us engage more personally during our Sunday Worship time. You can see what we did on Facebook. It was streamed live at the time.

We will try at least one more test, and YOU might want to be involved. Charisse tells us that you'll need to download Zoom on your computer or mobile device. The FREE Zoom account will work just fine, but you don't need a Zoom account to use it.

Then, this Wednesday night, September 30th, just before 7pm, please join us on Zoom:
   1. The meeting ID is: 554 319 7268. Type or copy and paste that in.
   2. Type in your name and press Next.
   3. The password for this meeting is "bible".

But if you just want to watch what we're doing on Wednesday - and NOT participate virtually - you can go to our Facebook LIVE page around 7pm. With any luck, we will stream the Zoom feed there.

Charisse says "I can't wait until we can get on this!" The others were quite enthusiastic as well.

Join us if you can. And then watch for an announcement about when we will launch this new Worship format.

Above-the-Tithe Challenge Offering

Above-the-Tithe Challenge Offering
through the month of June

Imani MCC and Friends: We are pleased and grateful to announce that several generous benefactors have pledged to match a total of $1,500 for this year’s Above-the-Tithe Challenge, which is in effect from now through June 30th. This is a recurring fundraiser by which everyone can contribute to the support of this ministry.

FRIENDS WHO DO NOT USUALLY TITHE TO IMANI MCC: This is an ideal time to offer support because the entire amount that you give will count toward the goal to be matched. So this is an opportunity to bless us with double the amount that you actually give. Just put the words “Above the Tithe” in the note portion of your electronic gift or check.

REGULAR TITHERS AND SUPPORTERS OF IMANI MCC: Your challenge is to add a little something extra to your usual offerings. That extra counts toward the amount to be matched. It’s based on the honor system. You tell us how much to count toward our goal.

Please give as you normally do – whether by mailing a check or by using our Cash App $ImaniMCCofNC or smartphone apps (and reference “Above the Tithe portion = $__”).

Please, if you are able, take this opportunity to bless this ministry. Thank you in advance!

Special COVID-19 Precautions

Rev Marilyn Bowens 2020Thursday, March 20, 2020

Greetings, Beloved!

The leadership of Imani MCC has been closely monitoring the news regarding the coronavirus pandemic. We are a small church and our usual numbers at our worship services and other activities are significantly lower than the numbers initially mentioned regarding gatherings to be avoided. For as long as that was the case, we felt comfortable to continue meeting with several safety-conscious changes in our procedures in recent weeks.

However, as things continue to evolve, at this point we believe it to be in the best interests of all concerned to streamline our normal activities for the rest of March while we continue to closely monitor this situation.

We will continue to offer spiritual support on Sundays at 10 a.m. via Facebook LIVE. If you have a particular need for in-person ministry, the church will be open, for about an hour, at that time. However, we look forward to fellowship with the majority of you virtually.

During this period, to avoid unnecessary personal contact, we will not provide our regular hospitality services (i.e., refreshments). We recognize that, for many, the impacts of the current circumstances include the loss or reduction of income. Members and friends who are able are encouraged to submit your tithes and offerings electronically via PayPal: or Cash App: $ImaniMCCofNC.

Before the end of the month, we will update you with our plans for moving forward into April; based on the information available at that time. Please know that we are in fervent prayer, daily, for each and every one of you.

Grace and Peace Be with You!
Pastor Marilyn Bowens
