At Mountain there is no shortage of "stuff to do". Here, you’ll find a community to celebrate your greatest joys or help you through life’s most daunting challenges. We’re much like a neighborhood, brimming with friends willing to lend a hand, share a laugh, offer a shoulder, or just have fun!

Take a look at some of the events we have going on right now.

    Kids

    We love kids, in fact, some of us are just big kids ourselves. Kids are the next generation of the church and we want to partner with you and see that they get the best of what we can offer.

    We strive to provide an environment that is safe, welcoming and educational — giving them age-specific lessons to keep them engaged and wanting to come back each week. Whether weekend only or throughout the week, we have something for kids of any age.

    Students

    Take a moment and think back to your experiences of middle and high school: the excitement, nervousness, perhaps awkwardness. At Mountain Student Ministries, we are here to walk with you and your family through these next few years.

    Our goal is a safe and fun place for middle school and high school students (6–12 grade) to connect, meet new people, and grow closer to Jesus.

    Life is about relationships and we have a thriving community of young adults from all walks of life. Whether you are looking for help, community, purpose or just looking — we exist to provide a judgment free zone for you to meet people who are going through the same struggles you are.

    Adults

    At Mountain, people matter, and all are welcome. We invite you to experience community, get help, make friends and celebrate life here. Whether you’re married, single, single-again, a parent or a young adult – no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done – you matter to us. Here you’ll find a community willing to support you in facing down life’s toughest challenges. We’re imperfect people searching for fulfillment and finding answers in the lessons Jesus taught the world. And we could use some company.

    Men

    It’s tough being a man today. Culture is mixed on exactly where and how we fit in and sometimes we may be confused as well. It’s too easy to shift into autopilot and get lost in work, bills and responsibilities. Have you ever wondered if there is more to life?

    We’re here to tell you there is! We exist to challenge men to push past their comfort zones and step into what life has to offer. Learn how to be a better: friend, husband, father, employee, boss and leader.

    Your best place to get started would be our monthly Men's Breakfast, where you will get an opportunity to jump in on a biblical topic and get connected with some other men, and also learn about more activities going on like our mid-size groups or 33 the Series. We also offer discipleship groups that are designed to model, teach, and encourage practical application of biblical principles.

    Women

    Experience a thriving community of women that are sure to bring you new friendships, support and authenticity at whatever stage of life you may be in. Whether you’re a busy mom, single, single-again, empty-nester or grandparent this is the place for you.

  • +

    Singles

    Dating? Divorced? Single parent? Wherever you are in life, you are not alone. This is a community with others in a similar life stage. We are a group of singles, ages 30–50, seeking to love God, love others, and serve the world as we navigate life together from a biblical perspective.

  • +

    Couples

    Experience the true freedom and growth that marriage was designed for. Start with the knowledge that fulfilling marriages don’t just happen, they are built on biblical principles essential to a warm, loving relationship. And, just as every individual has a unique gift and experiences, every marriage also has a unique story and purpose.

    Our Couples groups exist to support couples as they seek God’s best for their life together. To that end, we offer and promote communities of encouragement of all sizes — large group marriage enrichment seminars, mid-size couples groups, marriage/couples small groups, couples mentoring, and individual couples counseling.

  • +

    Seniors

    We never stop growing and it’s never too late to make new & authentic friendships. After all, being a Christian is a lifelong commitment. Our Young at Heart group attempts to provide opportunities to keep on keeping on. We connect with each other through monthly luncheons, Bible studies, community service, and fun social events.

    Groups

    Group gatherings are interactive times when small communities of friends support one another in answering two core questions: What is Jesus saying? What am I doing in response?

    Mountain groups are open to anyone wanting to learn more about God’s mission, and be part of carrying out God’s mission. Groups gather throughout the week all around Harford County and surrounding areas.

    If you’ve never been in a group or are new to God’s mission with Mountain, stop by the Welcome area during weekend services, and let someone suggest where to begin.

    Glocal Outreach

    Global + Local = Glocal

    Glocal Outreach is how we engage with God’s mission around here at Mountain. Jesus calls us to be global Christians as well as local Christians at the same time. It captures the heart of Jesus that we are to love our neighbors, and also take His message to all the nations. We are to be His witnesses in our “own backyard” (locally) as well as “to the remotest part of the earth” (globally).  

    Here are some ways to “get going” glocally.

    Sports

    We are here to have fun, get some exercise and challenge you to play with a purpose. We have various activities throughout the year for all levels of play; so whether you are just starting or a pro, we've got something for you.

    GrowingU

    Wherever you are in your journey of faith, God has bigger plans ahead for you. That is what GrowingU is all about. Through Bible studies and ministry classes, GrowingU offers all of us a chance to be stretched and challenged as disciples of Christ. Don‘t miss the growth God has planned for you.
