Join A Group

Groups are where we build meaningful friendships, grow in our faith together, and compassionately serve our community. All you have to do is show up and be real. 

Next session begins January 2022.

Finding community at MCC begins with ROOTED.

ROOTED is a small group experience where you’ll connect with God and others as you discover your purpose.  You’ll explore God’s Word, engage in prayer and serve experiences, and you’ll practice rhythms essential to a healthy spiritual life. 

If you’re looking to join a Life Group, we encourage you to register for ROOTED.
