Justice at MCC
At MCC, we are deeply committed to engaging with justice because we believe it is at the core of our mission to Love God, Love People, and Love the City. As followers of Christ, we understand that seeking justice for the marginalized, oppressed, and underserved is not only a moral imperative but also a tangible expression of our love for God and his creation. Our pursuit of justice empowers us to uplift the downtrodden, advocate for the voiceless, and extend a helping hand to those in need. Join us as we strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and the community, standing firmly on the belief that love and justice together can transform our world for the better.

Creation Care
A Creation Care Team brings the MCC community opportunities for acting on our love for our one God-given home. In our building and at our gatherings we aspire to zero-waste with recycling and composting. With a new building in our future, we’re planning for maximum energy efficiency, including renewable sources. We host events to educate ourselves and the community on climate change, species and habitat loss, pollution, and the practical steps we can take to restore our beautiful, suffering planet.

Love the City
We support local organizations and community efforts through our Love the City campaigns. This includes raising funds and collecting items for community efforts as well as walking alongside individuals and families in need. Recently, The MCC refugee resettlement team, under the umbrella of our Justice Team, has worked with a refugee family consisting of a husband, wife, and their 4 children, ages 10, 9, 8, and 4. They are part of a much larger resettlement effort in West Michigan.

Global Justice
World Renew is the development, relief and disaster response, and justice arm of the Christian Reformed Church. Compelled by God’s deep passion for justice & mercy, it joins communities around the world to renew hope, reconcile lives, and restore creation. Many MCC members recently participated in a World Renew sponsored study to help people live justly in such areas of life as generosity, consumption, and relationships. To learn more about the study and about opportunities to donate or volunteer, consult the World Renew website.
