Community of Hope, UCCOur Roots
In 1957, four denominations rooted in the Protestant Reformation joined together to form the United Church of Christ. Its member churches live in a loving covenant with one another and with God as revealed in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit. This covenant preserves the autonomy of the local congregation. The unity that we seek requires neither an uncritical acceptance of any point of view nor a rigid formulation of doctrine. We believe in responsible freedom—we embrace individual expressions of faith, and the individual questioning and seeking of God’s presence in our lives. We believe that we are called to minister to others and seek to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, God with us.

MCC Worship includes
    Prairie Roots
        led by our own Prairie Reckoning Group
    Taizé Service
    Hymn Sing Service

*Prairie Roots: Formerly known as "Prairie Reckoning," we have chosen a new name that reflects who we currently are and what we currently do: we play "roots" music (country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues) that is rooted in our Christian faith. In addition, we like the symbolism - knowing the amazingly deep and complex root systems of prairies.
