Thank you for your interest in serving at MCC! God has given every person a unique set of abilities for serving others (Eph. 2:10). Below are many ways to use your God-given gifts to help the church thrive or to help those in our community. There are opportunities to serve occasionally and on a more committed level with some roles requiring as little as 20 minutes. Most are scheduled on a weekly, monthly, or seasonal rotation. We encourage you to try something new. And if you’re still unsure, we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect fit for your interests and availability.
