Welcome to Mountain Christian Church Edgewood! We gather every Sunday at 9:15 & 11am, and would love to meet you there!
We meet in the community center, The EPICENTER at Edgewood, a beautifully renovated 20,000 square foot section of the Edgewood Commerce Center behind Walgreens on Rt 40. It’s a great environment where everyone can find a place to belong. We’re here because we love Edgewood, and we would love to welcome you into the Edgewood Campus community.
My name is Luke, and I love Edgewood.

What to Expect
Sunday: 9:15 & 11 AM
Got questions? Join us immediately after the service for a five minute overview of Mountain. This is a great place for you to meet someone on our team, ask your questions and pick up a gift just for you.
We like to say that Mountain is a “come as you are” environment, and as long as you’ve got something on, then we’re glad to welcome you in the attire that you’re comfortable with. On any given Sunday, you’ll meet people in football jerseys, leather motorcycle vests, jeans and a T-shirt, and polished shoes and a tie. All are appropriate. Whoever you are, come as you are.
Each week we share in a simple meal together called “Communion.” It is open to all who are followers of Jesus. Membership is not a requirement for participation in the communion meal. No one is obligated to take part in this meal, which consists of a piece of bread and a cup of juice, but all who call Jesus their Lord and their Savior are welcome to share in it.
Part of our worship each week includes giving of our offerings. As a guest, please do not feel obligated to give. This time of giving is for those who consider Mountain their church home and want to be a part of what God is doing through this church.
“I totally get why people drive an hour to go to that church!”

Over the years, Mountain Christian Church has met in a number of different venues on its Mountain Road campus, welcoming people from all over the region. In March of 2010, Mountain embarked on a new strategy to reach out to others in our community by launching a Bel Air Campus. Then, in 2013, we launched another campus in Edgewood that meets at The EPICENTER at Edgewood. In September of 2017, we will be launching our Abingdon Campus. We are still one church, but we meet in multiple locations. This “multi-site” strategy, along with our commitments to church planting, will continue to help our church further the mission of making more and better disciples, reaching out to people all over the community.
The worship experience at all of our campuses is similar, though each campus has its own unique identity and feel. Regardless of location, a warm and welcoming community of people gathers to engage in worship and experience relevant teaching from God’s Word. The Bible teaching at Edgewood and Bel Air (and soon, Abingdon) is often done via video from the Mountain Road campus as a way to maintain continuity with the broader Mountain community.
The EPICENTER at Edgewood is a community center designed to be a hub of activity for kids and adults, the CENTER of celebration and fun, healing and hope. It hopes to raise up leaders and inspire renewal in Edgewood by empowering people, strengthening families, and building community.
Mountain Christian Church is proud to partner with The EPICENTER at Edgewood and encourage people to participate in and support their programming. For more information, please visit The EPICENTER website at EPICENTERatEdgewood.com.
Images of Edgewood Book
Every community, every neighborhood has a story. And it’s important to listen to and know the story that has been told in a community—what has shaped its past, and what is influencing its present? Some Edgewood residents have worked hard to tell some of that story. They have compiled pictures and short vignettes and published them in a book as part of the Images of America series. So grab this book, and use it as a tool to pray for Edgewood. Let it help you understand the stories that have been woven together to make Edgewood what it is today. May God use us as part of the story He is writing to make Edgewood what He wants it to be—and to fashion us and our stories into what He wants them to be.
