get involved

"Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them:" 

Romans 12:6 (NKJV)


We are passionate about helping people to discover and put to use their God-given gifts and passions to do the Will of God and help others in the Church, the community and the world. 


Getting involved in various ministries and activities is a great way to discover gifting and interests, while helping others. In addition to "hands-on" ministry exposure, we intentionally mentor and train each person based on where they are on their journey with the Lord.


Want to get in involved in a MLC ministry or volunteer to help with an event or outreach? Check our our ministry teams below, Life Groups Page or Outreach Page.    Find the ministry that best suits you and contact the ministry leader or attend one of our Life Tracks to learn how and to get connected.
