At SMCC, we believe everyone has a next step to take. We don't believe that anyone "arrives" at a certain point in Christianity, but rather we all strive to to find our next step in our walk with Christ.
Because there are many next steps, we can't possibly list them all here, but we can list a few that we think are important for those that attend SMCC.
At SMCC, we do not have membership. Our desire is to not create a "club" or "insider" focused church. In fact, our desire is the opposite. We believe that those who call SMCC home should honor and serve the guest. That is why we ask people who call SMCC their home to become Fully Engaged. Becoming Fully Engaged involves these four activities:
Participating in a Group
Serving on a Team
Being a Growing Giver
Investing in & Inviting Others
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. At SMCC, we don't believe that the action of baptism saves you. Rather, we believe that baptism is a physical expression of a spiritual reality.
We believe that community not only happens in rows, but also in circles. People often think of church only as happening in rows (being at church on Sundays) but we think it's just as important for people to be involved in circles during the week (through groups).
Groups are a way for people to engage in community through discussion and personal relationships. Groups allow for people to live life with each other and grow in relationship with God and each other.

Teams are what make Sundays happen at SMCC. Those who serve on a team allow us to create environments where people can belong before they believe.
Joining a team is a simple next step that allows you to serve others, form community with people, and be a part of something greater than yourself.
If you're interested in joining a team, or simply have questions, please fill out this form.
Giving is a privilege and delight for those who consider SMCC their home church. Giving is a great next step for those who want to fund the mission of helping as many people as possible become fully devoted and fully delighted followers of Jesus.
For some, this might simply be a next step of trusting God with your finances. There are options to setup automatic recurring giving online, as well as giving in person at one of our locations.
