Jesus tells us, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to do everything I have told you”.
Matthew 28: 19-20

At Monroe Center Community Church, we desire to mobilize the church to reach the world with the Gospel message and to care for the needy. We desire that members of M.C.C.C. become so passionate about God’s heart for the lost that they become involved in outreach ministries locally, nationally, and globally.

Our congregation is involved in several local, national, and international ministries:

  • Camp Cedar: A weekend camp for girls between the ages of 7 to 17 who have been sexually abused. Camp Cedar provides a safe and fun environment to allow the girls to achieve a full and lasting recovery through the Lord. This is accomplished by involving the girls in fun and meaningful activities, all while being surrounded by others who have been through similar situations.
