    Church Everywhere!
    Coronavirus Updates

    Updated June 22, 2020 at 5 PM

    While Maryland is heading in the right direction, and some things are opening back up, Mountain wants to be vigilant for what’s next. We’re eager but not in a hurry, and we want to act wisely and in harmony with the best guidelines.

    So now, the most recent directives from the governor and positive trends in Maryland allow us to feel confident about moving into a phase called “THINK SMALL.”

    It’s called “THINK SMALL” because we don’t believe it is the right time to resume large in person gatherings that many have experienced before at Mountain. 50% capacity limits, 7’ distancing, masks, no singing, no congregating, limits on kids programming, and potentially having to turn people away is not an experience we think will be meaningful, and wouldn’t be wise to pursue.

    New guidance from the governor has lifted restrictions on the size of social gatherings. Malls, gyms, and indoor dining is reopening, and people can resume being in the same space with others with precautions in place. More opportunities to worship outdoors will continue to happen through the summer.

    There is also opportunity for smaller home gatherings and the chance to “invite someone to church” even though it’s not at the church building. We’re encouraging those who feel comfortable and who have a suitable environment -- whether in the front yard, patio, or even in a living room that could accommodate people with the right spacing -- to host WATCH PARTIES during the weekly worship service. Gather up some friends and neighbors where you can enjoy one another and worship together. Coaching and guides will be provided on how to make it a worthwhile experience within safety constraints. Watch Parties start the first weekend in July, so sign up to host one!

    Campus Groups, Second Saturday Serve, Celebrate Recovery and more are gathering in modified ways during the “Think Small” phase. There is more happening with Aberdeen, Summer Camps, and the Global Leadership Summit. So visit the groups and events pages for continued updates.

    We are “Thinking Small” but God will do BIG things in this season as we continue to seize opportunities to make more and better disciples.

    CHURCH AND CULTURE (CMIN 495)

    Confusion, polarizing positions, and even anger dominate the discussion of so many contemporary issues. How are Christ-followers to approach important but potentially divisive issues that lie at the center of society and our mission? The Church and Culture course will explore biblical, theological, and practical responses to some of today’s pressing issues, focusing on: Race and ethnicity, Human Sexuality, Women in Ministry, Politics, Leadership, and Missional Living. It has never been more important to wisely and carefully navigate vital issues in a way that advances God’s mission. And it has never been more vital that the church do this not as individuals, but as a community that is shaped by Jesus. Registration deadline is August 24.
