We are so glad you are planning a visit with us!
As most of you are likely aware, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services issued new restrictions that went into effect this week. With the significant rise in covid cases in Kent country, in an effort to support our overwhelmed health care workers in the area, and to protect our selfless volunteers at MCC, we will be worshipping this week via Zoom.
We will continually reevaluate how best to do worship.
The Service begins at 10:30 am Sunday

Parking can be found in the lot adjacent to the warehouse, on the street (Monroe, Newberry, Bond – meters are not active after 6 PM and on weekends), or in the lots across from 800 Monroe.
What Children will Experience
At MCC, we celebrate the unique image of God in each child! We treasure the opportunity to grow alongside them, embracing their curiosity and honoring their contributions to our community.
When you arrive, please ask a member of our welcoming team to show you around our Children’s Ministry area and introduce you to our awesome volunteers! Children’s Ministry volunteers can be identified by having a name tag on an orange lanyard.
Newborn - 3 yr
Drop off the littles for playtime with our skilled caregivers while you get the chance for some God-and-me-time. You will be asked to fill out a registration form (first time only) and your child will be assigned a number tag that you will need to return when you pick up your child at the end of the service.
Side note: Please help us keep germs from spreading by letting your child rest at home if there is any indication that he or she may be unwell. Thanks for your help in keeping our nursery a safe and healthy environment!
3 yr - Grade 2
After our morning songs, the kids are invited forward to join the pastor for a blessing and a prayer. Then they head downstairs to their classroom (just past the nursery) for games, crafts (no glitter, we promise!) and a lesson from the Jesus Storybook Bible which helps them learn how every story points to Jesus and his “never-giving-up, always-and-forever love” for them!
People of all ages who love Jesus as their Savior and Lord are welcome to participate in Communion at MCC so you may pick up your children from the classroom if you choose to have them join you; otherwise please pick them up at the end of the service.
Grades 3 - 8
Kids in grades 3 - 8 stay with their families for most of the service, then head to the youth room (downstairs and to the left) after taking Communion to share insights & questions about the message. Our Bible Bistro mentors guide the conversation to help them come to a deeper understanding of the unconditional love and grace of God.
