We always seek to understand ourselves in the community in which we sit. The community of the north suburbs is beautifully diverse and we at MGCC seek to revel in that diversity.
We are in communion with three area Presbyterian Churches to explore how we can serve more powerfully together as a Threefold Cord ministry; We participate in our local community’s Thanksgiving service; We participate in and host events of Soul Space, an Abrahamic Interfaith community of women. We maintain a beautiful garden to provide a calming space for anyone in the community to use for quiet contemplation; We maintain a Little Free Library
We have individuals at MGCC who collaborate in various ways in the community including: Assisting teachers at Parkview, the local K-8 school; Reading for preschoolers in the pre-school housed in our building; Participate in several community groups that support social justice initiatives; Participate in municipal initiatives to support our community’s efforts to better steward our planet
