How you can serve others
We know from experience that helping others is a great blessing. As we grow together in our understanding of God, our hearts begin to break more and more for those who need help. We believe God is calling MCC to be a part of great things in the East Mountains, New Mexico and the world. We see Him transforming those He puts in our paths with whom we can share the gospel and, at the same time, transforming us. We have many on-going service opportunities listed here. See our Ministry Pages for even more opportunites to serve.
Opportunities to Serve
The Food Pantry: The Food Pantry at MCC is a place where people come for food in hard times while building relationships and feeding the soul. It is a place where hearts can be transformed as volunteers pray with and for those in need. The Food Pantry is open by appointment only. Contact Food Pantry Coordinator Barbara Fall to get involved.
Shine Partnership: Shine is a city-wide organization that connects churches with Title 1 APS schools. Mountain Christian Church is privileged to serve A. Montoya Elementary School in Tijeras, NM.

Wood Ministry: MCC's Wood Ministry begins in the church and extends to our East Mountain Community. Most might assume that the cutting of trees, splitting of logs, and delivery of wood is the heart behind this ministry but they would be missing the best part! This unique ministry partners sponsors with beneficiaries to encourage each person receiving wood of their worth and that their contribution is valuable! Relationship building is key in MCC's Wood Ministry and we are looking for individuals or couples willing to step into this vital role. Contact Don and Ann Moore to get involved.
