// SEPTEMBER //


Membership Class
At it's core we believe the membership at a local church should mean something. Here we view it as a responsibility, not a reward. By becoming a member you are essentially saying, "I not only agree with what this congregation stands for, but I want to play an active role in living it out with the people of this church."

Sept 3 | Both campuses
Adults (16 yrs+) | Cost: FREE
See mccth.org/membership to register and for exact times
