Welcome to Mt. Vernon Community Church!
What should I expect when I come?
Warm friendly people, engaging music and worship, God’s word to be preached in a compelling way and an opportunity to meet God. You’ll be encouraged and maybe even challenged.
Expect God. We can’t change lives but Jesus can. We expect the presence of God in all of our services! Where God is present there is joy, healing, hope and life. We come together to meet with and worship the Creator of the universe and to be changed by Him.
Expect Honesty. You don’t have the time to go to a fake religious ceremony, and neither do we. Every sermon is real and honest. All teaching at MVCC is from the Bible and from real life. We all need truth not gimmicks and hype.
Expect Love. At MVCC you will be loved no matter what. You can be yourself. Urban, suburban, black, white, rich, poor, young and old, all are welcome. We all find our identity and commonality at the foot of the cross.
What should I wear?
Whatever you normally wear. From business casual attire, to shorts and sandals, all are welcome.
Will I be pushed to do something I don’t want to do?
No, you’re our guest. You will not be pushed to do anything you don’t want to do. We will not make you stand up in front of everybody as a first-time guest or introduce yourself. When the offering plate goes by, we do not expect our guests to give. There are a lot of great people to meet and a lot of great things happening on a Sunday morning, but the level of your participation is totally up to you.
What about my kids?
We have a nursery for children from birth to four years of age. We always have two reliable adults present with the children. We also conduct children’s church during the sermon for elementary-aged children.
When and Where?
We are located at 1800 W. 4th Street Mt. Vernon, IN 47620. Our Sunday service begins at 10:45 am.
