Information for Visitors
Thinking of visiting MPC? Here’s some information you may find useful:
What time is the worship service?
Our worship service, called “Celebration” begins at 10 am. Celebration begins with the chimes and then a musical prelude to allow everyone to sit down and bring themselves into the experience from wherever they have come that morning.
How formal are your services?
Our services tend toward the informal side of things, though we do sit in pews. Our pastor does not wear formal robes and our congregation dresses in a variety of ways. You’ll see everything from blue jeans to dress suits (more jeans than suits, though!). We encourage everyone to dress in a way that will help them to be comfortable and able to fully participate.
Are there programs for children or teens?
MPC has classes for 1st through 6th graders and childcare for younger children during service, as well as a Youth Group for teens that meets in the evening. Visit our Children and Youth section for more information.
Is there a time to talk to people after the service?
Following celebration, we hope you will join us for coffee/tea and refreshments in the Family Hour. This is a good time for you to ask us any questions you may have and for us to greet you and help you to feel welcome. We have recognized over time that some folks are a bit shyer than others so we created the “red cup” idea. If you don’t mind being greeted and welcomed, grab a red coffee cup during the refreshment time. If you are on the shy side and want to ease your way in, feel free to take a white cup and that will let people know that you want to observe rather than interact.
Where would I find directions or parking information?
Who should I contact for more information?
Feel free to contact our Pastor, Rev. Beth Buckingham-Brown at email@example.com or our office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about our church.
We hope to see you soon.
