Mechanicsville Christian Center
|Church or Org Description *|
|Mechanicsville Christian Center was conceived 45 years ago in the hearts of a small group of Christians who were part of a charismatic home Bible study in Mechanicsville. Along with several people from the West End Assembly of God, they founded MCC. Their first weekly service was held on June 15 – 1975, at the Hay Market Dinner Theater with 50 people present. From the beginning, their founding members placed a high emphasis on young people and missions. These priorities are still very present today and can be seen in their thriving kid’s and student’s ministries and their vibrant mission’s program. Over the years MCC has continued to build, enlarge, and update its facilities in keeping with its growing attendance and expanding the vision. Today MCC runs around 1050-1100 on a typical Sunday morning. About 20% of that increase has taken place over the past 18 months. MCC is enthusiastic about their future and impact God is enabling them to have in their community and around the world.|

Their leadership will influence the culture at MCC which includes all aspects of worship programming and creative ministry.
