What you need to know

about mcc


1. First of all, you never have to get dressed up (either physically or spiritually) to join us. We’re just a bunch of imperfect people doing the very best we can to be more like Jesus every day. 

2. Jesus loves young people and so do we! Through our weekend and mid-week programs, our amazing staff and volunteers help children and teens understand how much God loves them. 

3. Weekend services are very important! Hearing Bible teaching and listening to uplifting music draws us closer to God. And you’ll also find that fun and laughter are commonplace at MCC! 

4. Whether you’re new to church or been around a very long time, MCC is a place where you can connect with others and take your next step. We would love to help you get connected! 

5. Jesus didn’t come to be served but to serve, and we want to follow His lead. So we’re committed to providing a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, both inside and outside the church.

on the east side of the building.


"Websites can only show us so much. If you really want to know more about us, please plan a visit on a Sunday morning." 


"We believe Church is not a location, a building, or a time of the week. Church is people and MCC is a community of authentic and imperfect people who are discovering hope in Jesus."  


"I hope you’ll find MCC to be an exciting place that helps you connect with God. We continue to work hard to create an environment where adults and kids can explore the Christian faith together.


"Whether you’re looking for exciting music, inspiring teaching, authentic friendships, or practical help, MCC has something for you. It’s a safe place to find freedom, healing and the joy that comes from a personal relationship with Jesus. We hope to see you soon!"
