We eagerly look forward to the day when we can all gather together in person again on Sunday mornings. We also know that it will be a process to get to that point. In the meantime, we hope you will continue to worship with us online on Sundays via our live stream at 10:15 am.
Phased Plan to Return to Large Gatherings
We have put together a phased plan to return to gathering again on Sunday mornings. Note that there are no dates attached to this plan as we adjust in line with state guidance. We also have recommendations for groups and watch parties via the links below.

Letter from the Pastors.
March 11, 2020
It seems right now that every 24 hours is filled with extra measures of awareness and protection for the public. The governor of Michigan has closed all schools in the State for the remainder of the school year. We want to make sure we are listening carefully to State officials and representatives of the medical community. In light of this, we have suspended our public worship gatherings, at both campuses, until further notice. We will not have a public church service this Sunday or any other Sunday. Additionally, we are canceling all other in-person ministry events that would normally take place throughout the week including studentLife, uNite, Wednesday groups, community groups that meet on campus, etc.
We don’t want anyone feeling disconnected as a result of these changes. Please join us online at 10:15 am this Sunday where we will have a massive online church presence as we worship and open up God’s Word together. Again, the church building will not be open, but we will host the service for everyone to view online on our facebook page and on our website at mpcc.org.
Obviously, there will not be an opportunity to take an offering in person that supports the ongoing ministry of the church. To continue to give toward our shared mission while we are unable to meet in person, you can give conveniently from your phone by texting ‘mpccgive’ or 'CCAlmaGive' to 77977. Or, visit mpcc.org/give to set up direct deposit or recurring giving. As a reminder, now may be a great time to take advantage of online giving to help support your local church even when you are unable to attend a worship service. More information can be found on our website at mpcc.org/give.
For now, this is a call to the church to 'prayer and fasting'. Let's dedicate this time at home to praying for our community and world as well as the health of those who need God’s healing power.
Church – this is not the end of the world, although some might have us believe that. Let’s keep our eyes on Jesus and our hearts 'together on purpose'. Love to everyone at both our campuses.
