Sunday Morning Bible Classes

What a Character!

Please join us for our Sunday morning Bible class series! Classes begin at 9:35 a.m.

During June-August, our adult classes will study some important women and men in scripture, examining what those stories tell us about God and about ourselves.

We also offer classes for children and teenagers. You can find out more information on our Children’s Ministry page and our Youth & Family page.

Spring Classes For All

WOW (Wonder of Worship)

Scott Young | Auditorium

“If you are what you love, and if love is a virtue, then love is a habit” (James K.A. Smith, You Are What You Love).

Developing a new love is like driving a car, or playing the piano, or swinging a golf club: it requires so much practice that, eventually, you end up doing it without thinking about it! Our prayer is that you would develop a new love for worship. We were created by God and we were created for God. Let’s spend the summer developing a new habit—the love of worshiping the God of the universe. After all, you are what you love!

Cross-Training: Lessons from 1 Corinthians

Various Teachers | A105-106

Come hear a great slate of MRCC teachers addressing a book with many practical implications for today’s church! Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians helps us be the kind of people God wants and the kind of church God wants.
