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.

Jesus said, 'follow me and I will make you fishers of men."
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.
MOPS and Beyond 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 is relying 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 11 For more information, visit mopsandbeyond.com
A typical MOPS and Beyond meeting includes time for moms to learn and talk together. Presentations 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 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. (Enter Door #2.) Childcare available at no cost (through 5th grade). For more information on upcoming meetings, visit the Mops & Beyond website at mopsandbeyond.org.

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.

As we head toward Easter, we will read and study Max Lucado's Book, "He Chose The Nails: What God Did To Win Your Heart."
He Chose The Nails: What God Did To Win Your Heart: Every gift from God reveals his love, but no gift reveals his love more than the gifts of the cross. These gifts came not wrapped in paper but in passion. They were not placed around a tree but around a cross. They were not covered with ribbons but sprinkled with the blood that Christ shed on our behalf. In this five-session video Bible study, Max Lucado explores the many gifts that Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. These include not only the gift of the cross but also the gift of the thorns that pierced his brow. The nails that tore his flesh. The seamless robe that he removed for us. The empty tomb where he forever defeated sin and death.The hill of the cross is rich with the gifts of God's grace. These were gifts he didn't have to give. The only required act for our salvation was the shedding of blood, yet God did so much more. So, as we unwrap these gifts, we need to pause and listen for his voice. As we do, perhaps we will hear him whisper, "I did it just for you.”
