CALLING ALL TALENTED INDIVIDUALS! We are asking for all of the talented members of MLAC to send in your talent videos. Last year we had a wonderful time gathering for the first MLAC's Got Talent event. We want to see some more talents this year as we host the MLAC's Got Talent Video Edition. We are collecting videos through a Drop Box site at

https://www.dropbox.com/request/k68S4E9DybEZSfk2hfJZ.   The submissions will be released on our MLAC Family Facebook Group page. So grab your cameras and start filming! To see the call for submissions video click here.

Tailgate Prayer will kick off this Sunday at noon. We will have prayer teams in the church parking lot ready to pray with people from their cars. Stop by between noon and 4 p.m. 

The Kids Ministry Pop By Drive Thru was a great way to reach out to kids. We had a number of families drive through the parking lot and receive bubbles, a sucker and a scavenger hunt. The team hopes to host another Pop By event in the near future.

As we continue this social distancing adventure, we have two upcoming events to announce. On April 21, the KIDS Ministry staff will be hosting a "Thanks for Popping By" drive-thru family event. Families are invited to drive through the church parking lot between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. to receive a warm greeting and a special gift of fun activities for each child. 

We will also be hosting a Tailgate Prayer time from noon to 4 p.m. on April 26. Anyone needing prayer or interested in praying with us is invited to come to the church parking lot where a prayer team (practicing social distancing guidelines) will be praying with participants as they remain in their cars.

For more information on these events visit our Coming Events page.

Today we have a new resource available for Holy Week. Pastor Dave Dechape has provided a series of four messages with study questions and versers for families and individuals to use as they reflect on the last week of Christ's life and prepare their hearts to celebrate the resurrection. You can download and print the study guide HERE.

A new Facebook group called MLAC Family has been established to help build community with our congregation. We will continue to post on our regular public Facebook page but more personal "church family" discussions will take place in this private group. To request to join go to the MLAC Family group. We look forward to meeting with you there.

Thank you to all those who joined us for online church yesterday. We were so happy to see so many more viewers and the increased interaction. Keep joining us each Sunday at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Facebook or at MLAC TV. 


The service was also available through our website at MLAC TV, but it wasn't without glitches. We are continuing to refine this process for those who do not have access to Facebook. 


There is a step-by-step, giving how-to video now available on our Giving Page that will help walk people through all the possible ways of giving during this time.


Tyler and Mark updated the congregation on the fundraising for the Youth Chicago trip in a video. If you missed it, check it out here.

We are planning to stream our Sunday worship services at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. again this week. We hope you can join and interact with us on Facebook. We are hoping to have the service also streaming on our website for anyone who does not have a Facebook account. 


If you didn't see the Kid's Ministry video's and Youth Ministry message from the last couple of days, connect with them both at the Connection Center.

We want to thank all of those who were able to join us for our online streaming of our Sunday worship experience. Unfortunately, due to some technical difficulties we were only able to stream through Facebook. This week, we will be working with the resources available to us to try to overcome the obstacles we faced with streaming to our website. 


We have a team in place ready to help those who need assistance during this time. If you are in need of assistance please call us at 509-765-6656 or fill out this form.


We would also love to be praying for you. Just head to the Connection Center to fill out a prayer request.

The online Connection Center is ready to view. Just like our Connection Center in the foyer is our usual hub of communication, the Connection Center online is the go-to spot for the MLAC family. Submit prayer requests, give tithes and offerings, see what is happening in KIDS and Youth Ministries all from this one stop shop. 


The staff spent the day recording more videos and planning for Sunday's worship experience. We are excited to gather for the Sunday streaming events at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. We will be posting instructions on how you can participate tomorrow.

Moses Lake Alliance Church has chosen to conduct it's worship experience online only in response to the coronavirus outbreak and Washington state's efforts to control the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to gather for worship with the help of technology on Sunday mornings at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. To participate just click the MLAC Live button on our website. This streaming event will provide live interaction opportunities during the two broadcasts. If you miss the streaming events you are welcome to watch on our website anytime after they air.


Just like our Connection Center in the foyer is our usual hub of communication, we are planning a Connection Center Online as the go-to spot for the MLAC family.  The page will be up in the next day or so. You will find ways to submit prayer requests, contact us directly, give tithes and offerings, see what is happening in our KIDS and Youth ministries and more. 


We, as a staff, are continually exploring new ways in which we can use technology and the resources available to reach out to our congregation in this current situation. We will do our best to keep you updated and connected.
