Church Membership: Local church membership is a reflection of the spiritual reality of belonging in Christ through baptism. Sharing life with other Christians is an indispensable feature of being a Christian. If you are not a member of MRC we invite you to consider it. In membership the congregation commits to you and your well-being, as well as you doing the same for us.
