Welcome to MRC
We are on a Mission...and we would love it if you joined us
Mechanicsburg Brethren in Christ Church [McBIC] felt God was asking them to plant a new church in the Dillsburg South area. This new church would be a missional church that would focus on reaching and redeeming people. They did just that. A group of people from McBIC planted Mountain Ridge Church [MRC]. Today, the mission continues to be our focus.
That mission is what makes MRC different and unique. That mission helps us prioritize what is important and decide what we will do and what we won’t do. It defines us. What is it? Jesus gave us the mission in Matthew 10:5-8,
"Don't begin by traveling to some far-off place to convert unbelievers. And don't try to be dramatic by tackling some public enemy. Go to the lost, confused people right here in the neighborhood. Tell them that the kingdom is here. Bring health to the sick. Raise the dead. Touch the untouchables. Kick out the demons. You have been treated generously, so live generously. "
We have created MRC to be that special place where, no matter where people are or what has happened, they can be redeemed by God. So at MRC, we don’t invite people to a church filled with religious activities and programs to keep them busy; we invite people into a meaningful, life changing, relationship with God. Again, Jesus said it best in Matthew 11:28-30,
"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
Our purpose statement is:: To help people find and fulfill God’s plan for their lives. It’s the mission Jesus died for. It’s the mission we live for. We would love it if you joined us in this mission.
