Welcome to Mission Community Church. We know that visiting a church for the first time can sometimes be an overwhelming experience, but having an idea of what to expect can certainly help.
WHEN SHOULD I SHOW UP?
Our Sunday worship service starts at 10:30 am, and this service has programs for infants and children all the way through 5th grade. Our youth meet on Wednesday nights at 6:00 pm.
So that you won’t feel rushed, we do recommend that you arrive 10 minutes before the service. Kid’s 0 – 5 can be dropped off, before our service begins, in our Kid’s Praise Room. There are friendly greeters who will be glad to show you where they meet. Children in 1st through 5th grade can remain in our worship service until the sermon. Right before the sermon, we will announce that it is time for Children’s Church and the children follow the leaders to another room for a message more relevant to their age. Parents are always welcome to have their children remain in the service with them. There is also a cry room where parents can go with a fussy baby or to change a diaper. The cry room is adjacent to the sanctuary where they can see the service, through a window, and hear with an adjustable speaker in the room.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Our services are for you and we welcome the laid-back lifestyle, so come dressed however you feel most comfortable. We’re thrilled that you’re joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you’re wearing. Dressed up or dressed down, we have a variety of styles at our services.
JEANS OK! T-SHIRT OK! SANDALS OK! SHORTS OK!
BATHING SUIT - PROBABLY NOT OK!
HOW DO I GET THERE?
We are located at 316 E. Central Ave., Pacific, MO 63069. Click here for directions.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
We are committed to a compelling and challenging presentation of God’s truth. Our format is accessible to anyone, no matter where they are on their life’s journey. This time is set aside for communicating with God from our hearts.
We have an upbeat worship with contemporary Christian music, as well as intimate songs of worship. Everyone worships in his or her own unique way – for some, that means singing, clapping, and raising their hands; for others, it means quietly reflecting on the words or praying at the altar. At Mission Community Church, you’re welcomed to do what comes from the heart in praise to God.
WHAT WILL THE MESSAGE BE LIKE?
Every week, you will hear a relevant, straightforward message based on Scripture that will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus and provide a strong Biblical foundation. Some messages will be taught verse-by-verse and others will be topical. We like to mix in a lot of Bible, some personal stories, life application, and humor. You can listen to a recent message if you click on the messages page.
DO I HAVE TO GIVE AN OFFERING?
Each week, we encourage people to bring their tithes and offerings, but as a guest, please do not feel any pressure to give. Giving and tithing is an act of worship for our regular attendees, allowing them to thank God for the work he is doing in their lives. Tithes and offerings help support ministries, meet needs in our community, and reach more people for Christ.
DO YOU HAVE COMMUNION?
We typically celebrate communion about once a month. We encourage all who have made Jesus the Lord of their lives to take communion. You do not have to be a member of our church to receive communion with us. The juice and bread we share represent the blood that Jesus shed and His body that was broken on the cross. Without the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, no one could enter into Heaven.
ARE THERE KIDS PROGRAMS AVAILABLE?
Our Church offers interactive, age-appropriate classes for your kids to enjoy while you are attending services. Kid’s Praise is from 0 – 5 years and they are cared for during our entire worship service. Children’s church is from 1st – 5th grade, they are dismissed before the sermon with their leaders to hear a message more relevant to their ages.
