As most of you know, MTC has gotten off to an incredible start! We have been running two successful and fun FREE after-school programs for all 4th-8th grade students in the South Madison Schools District. If you would like to learn more about these programs visit our Youth tab.
At MTC, we put a huge emphasis on relationship. We are designed by The Creator to crave relationship and fellowship -- with Him and with one another.
Jesus calls us to fellowship with one another. To be with other believers. To help grow each other in our faith, motivate one another, and encourage our brothers & sisters in Christ. In doing so, we are more fully equipped and ready to reach out and bring others into the fold as well. We are strengthened, uplifted, and supported. Gathering with one another also allows for times of learning and growing in the Word of God and our faith and hope in Christ Jesus. And there is no more infectious time of praise and worship than when you are among fellow believers filled with the Holy Spirit crying out to God, dancing for our Father, and raising hands to & falling on our knees before our Savior.
Whether you have believed for years or are still trying to figure your own faith out, we want to fellowship with you - "to stir up one another to love and good works.. encouraging one another.." [Hebrews 10:24-25]. As Jesus tells us in Matthew 18:20, "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them."
So let's gather together, Friends!
In praise & worship, in teaching & learning, in support & encouragement, in laughter & fun!
Trivia Night Tuesdays
We hosted our first Trivia Night for all of our 21+ year old friends at The Stable on Tuesday 4/12, and it was awesome! Thank you to all who showed up and participated! And a HUGE thank you to the wonderful owners and staff of The Stable in Pendleton & our awesome MC Zach Garner!
These nights are designed to have a judgment-free and positive zone for our 21+ year old friends to gather, build relationships, and have some good, clean fun together! It is a great way to foster conversations between our peers and have a place to be open and honest with whatever is going on in our lives. It's also a place a to just relax and have a fun night while getting to know one another and grow relationships.
Trivia Nights are every Tuesday from April 12th-May 24th at The Stable in Pendleton. Everyone 21+ years and older are invited! It's FREE & FUN! Check out our Events For Young Adults tab for more info on Trivia Nights & for other upcoming events.

Family Fun Nights
Our next Family Fun Night is Thursday April 28th at Catalyst Church! This is such an awesome way for the families in our community to gather together and get to know one another. We will have a FREE movie night and Italian catered dinner from Nameless Catering. Thank you to Lions Club of Pendleton for providing the meal for this exciting time together! This will be from 6pm-8pm and is open to ALL families in the community. We will be screening Inside Out, which you need to see if you haven't already. Invite your family, your friends, your neighbors, the random couple at the grocery store.. anyone and everyone! Check out our Family Fun Nights tab for more information on these once-a-month events.
We love visitors! Come see us anytime! You may need to check with us first, but if you come between 10am-3pm on a Monday-Thursday, you are pretty sure to catch us working hard. We're always happy to chat with our friends, pray together, and give you the grand tour of our humble workplace.
We also love it when you use our office to meet! We have a small group Bible study that uses our space on Thursday evenings, our Advisory Council utilizes the space for their meetings, and we encourage you to reach out to us if you have a small group of some sort that needs a safe place to gather together. After all, we aim to provide safe places to empower generations :)
As I mentioned previously, we want to support your outreach efforts and dreams. If you have a small group, life group, or Bible study you run or would like to start, then we are happy to help you get started and/or provide a space for you to meet. We can use our office or find you other available options in the community. We are happy to be the connector and to help you get your calling going! Contact Katie with any questions or requests in this area.
