SmallGroups


Because God exists in community, He has created us to live in community and do life together. While no one will get to know everyone, everyone needs to experience community by getting to know at least someone. Finding a small group to study scripture, find accountability and support, and pray together is an essential step in every follower of Jesus' life. We know our best shot at continued spiritual growth happens in the context of community. Jesus set up this model when he took a group of ordinary men and asked them to follow him. He promised that he would make them something. Those men went on to change the course of human history.

 

Small groups of people dedicated to living out God’s word and loving others will change the world. This is nothing new, but it is vital. There are a wide variety of groups available at MCC—groups that meet in homes and on various days and times. We would love to get you connected to the group that is right for you.

Group Studies

From time to time we find connection and community around a topic from Scripture, or a Biblical perspective on a life topic. That's why we offer group Bible studies. Group  Bible studies are short term or topic based Bible studies to help inform how you see the world and understand scripture. Everything we do is based on scripture, these Bible studies are no different. In fact a group Bible study can help build a biblical foundation in your life and help you as you seek to build the habit of reflecting on scripture. We have ongoing men's, and women's bible studies that you can join any time as well as classes that run for sessions. For more information on our studies and classes visit our "Events/Classes" page. 

Ongoing Open Groups

  • MOps and Beyond

    MOPS and Beyond helps women begin and build a relationship with Jesus while enjoying community with other moms.  It is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. MOPS & Beyond believes that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS and Beyond helps women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find identity by journeying alongside one another. MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers, we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. But we recognize that all moms need support. And so we include BEYOND so moms with kiddos of all ages (through college) can come together to love and encourage each other. Join MOPS and Beyond for the fall kickoff on September 10th.


    A typical MOPS and Beyond meeting includes time for moms to learn and talk together.  Devotionals on subjects like relationships, organization techniques, health, wellness and teaching our children to serve are given.  We often include a creative activity too.  We provide other opportunities for moms to connect throughout the month with a mom’s night out, play dates, service days, and field trips for the kids. Meetings are the second Monday of every month (Sept. to May) at MCC from 6:30-8:30 pm in Room 220. Childcare available at no cost (through 5th grade). For more information on upcoming meetings, email Meghan Fritsch at meghan@exploremcc.org

  • REFIT

    Experience fitness.
    Build community.
    Make an impact.


    This is what we’re all about. And why we’re shifting to REFIT®. What’s REFIT®? We’re so glad you asked! REFIT® is a fitness revolution that believes that the heart is more than a muscle, that a person is more than a body and  that relationships are as important as results. We believe that fitness isn’t just for the fit. It’s for the willing.


    Like ZUMBA? Then you’ll love REFIT®!  REFIT® is a dance-oriented program (much like Zumba) that utilizes modern music and choreography to provide a high-energy cardio workout. Great for all fitness levels (modifications always offered). REFIT® includes purposeful and safe movements that are not only easy to follow, but incredibly fun! You’re invited to participate individually, but we strongly encourage you to form a team. REFIT® is best enjoyed with some friends or family at your side!


    Weekly classes taught by certified REFIT® & ZIN Zumba Instructors, Melissa Hall and Weena Denlinger. No registration necessary. Monetary donations (of $3) are suggested and used to support MCC local and global mission outreach.
