Small groups have never been more important than they are in this season. We need to connect and care for one another. If your group is meeting in person, we strongly advise you to adhere to the following guidleines:
- Gather in groups of ten people or less.
- As weather permits, meet outdoors.
- Wear a mask before/during/after a small group meeting. Encourage others to do the same.
- Self-screen yourself and your household and please stay home if you have any symptoms.
- If you or anyone in your household has recently tested positive for COVID -19 (or are in quarantine), please stay home.
- Keep 6 ft socially distant from other households.
- We encourage our small groups to continue to meet in a format that best fits your group members. This may mean smaller groups of 4-6 or using a free online format like Google Hangouts, Skype, or even conference calling.
Groups that gather at the church are asked to abide by current masking and social distancing guidelines. If your group would like to reserve space at the church (one time or recurring), please contact [email protected].

Why Small Groups?
Our small group exist to create authentic Christian community. Small groups provide opportunities for face to face connection, a sense of family and a place to belong. Though small groups serve a variety of purposes, MCC's groups are designed to meet 5 specific needs:
- A place to live out the one another commands. Jesus repeatedly encouraged his disciples to love one another.
- A place to give and recieve. Being in community is one of the primary ways God wants to bless you. It's also one of the main ways he wants you to love others.
- A place to grow. The path to healthy growth goes through a few deep friendships - and there are no shortcuts. God uses people to grow people.
- A place to encounter God. We can encounter God in a unique way in small groups that isn't possible on our own.
- A place to succeed together where one alone would fail. A threefold cord is not easily broken.
