Is MCPC an Emergency Shelter?
About once a year, snow closes Interstate 25 forcing vehicles off the road and into Monument. Local emergency response teams will frequently guide people to MCPC for shelter. We have a team of volunteers who open up the church and dig out the blankets for those who must spend the night before moving on. Our neighborhood Safeway graciously provides food for our guests.
Does Weight Watchers Meet at MCPC?
Yes, they do, Tuesdays at 12:00PM.
Who are Those Boy Scouts that I see Around the Church?
We sponsor Monument Troop 6, which meets every Tuesday evening at 7:00PM.
We are the chartering organization for Cub Scout Pack 17 and host several den meetings on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
We are the Chartering Organization for Venturing Crew 249.
What Should we Wear to Services?
You will see suits and dresses, shorts, and cowboy boots at our services. Please dress as you deem appropriate for worship and celebration, most likely you will find someone dressed similarly.
Are Infants Welcome?
Of course! We have a staffed nursery for each service. You are welcome to bring your youngest into the Sanctuary with you if you prefer. Should your precious little one get cranky, there is a "Crying Room" available in the back of the Sanctuary with piped in audio so that you stay with the service while taking care of baby business.
What About my 3-10 year olds?
Near the beginning of each service is a special Children's Sermon, focused directly to our younger children. After this special moment, children are free to return to their parents or, during the first service, to follow the Sunday School teachers to the classrooms (located beneath Fellowship Hall) for children's Sunday School. Children's Sunday School concludes at the end of the first service.
Can we Get Married at MCPC? We love weddings. In addition to our main sanctuary which holds 300 people, we have the historic Sheldon Jackson Chapel for a more intimate setting. Please contact the Church Office at 481-3902 for more information.
Is MCPC Handicapped Accessible? Yes! All parts of the church are wheelchair accessible. We have braille signage to help visually impaired visitors find their way through our building.
