Growing Up in Christ

    01.21.19 | Stories by Brad Wingler

    We were in high school when a friend invited us to Youth Group at MCC. We both had grown up going to different churches but we immediately saw something different here…we saw and heard people who were actually living out their faith. God used the leaders and Youth Pastor to not only show us the love of Christ but show us what a life in Christ truly meant. We learned so much about the Bible and God opened our eyes to His beautiful truths. We felt loved, valued, and spiritually fed.

    The relationships we built and our connection to MCC remained as we went to college. We were encouraged to continue serving and grew spiritually as we spent time in community.  It has always been clear to us from MCC Youth that we need to walk with others and draw near to God daily. We’re beyond thankful God brought us to MCC as teenagers and that people loved us enough to walk with us as we grew into the adults we are today.
