Unleashing youth to experience God, love one another, and serve others!

Here at MCC, we are committed to investing in our Middle School & High School students. Our Youth Ministry exists to provide a safe space for every student to experience Acceptance, Relationship, Intentionality, Spirituality, and Empowerment. We seek to foster discipleship through engaging programs and opportunities – Youth Small Groups, student worship, retreats, mission trips, serving and leadership opportunities, and much more. We strive to be a place where every student can come as they are and discover who God is for themselves to establish a relationship with God that impacts not only their own spiritual journey but every area of their lives. Our goal is to connect the passions of our youth with God’s passions to extend the radical love of God to our world.

Our last Gathering of the semester will be on May 28. Youth Group will return in August.

Just because we’re on a break, doesn’t mean we won’t see you this summer! Here’s how MCC Youth can stay connected this summer:

STUDENT SECTION – Join us every Sunday in the Student Section, a designated area in the sanctuary where we can all sit together during the 9:50 a.m. service, to continue to lean into community and the life of the church.

SECOND SUNDAYS – On the Second Sunday of each month, we’ll offer a summer version of The Gathering in the Youth Center during the 9:50 a.m. service. Make sure you join us on June 11 and July 9… and then August 13 is Promotion Sunday kickoff for the new school year!

FIRST WEDNESDAYS – We’ve got something fun planned for each first Wednesday of the summer months. More info to come, but mark your calendars for June 7, July 5, and August 2!

SUMMER POP-UPS – Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook for random opportunities to hang out throughout the summer.


Weekly Activities During the School Year
