Mount Berry Church
Our worship services are usually held at 8 p.m. on Sunday nights in the College Chapel on Berry's main campus, but there are two other chapels - Frost Chapel and Barnwell Chapel - that we will occasionally use for special services.
As a college congregation, Mount Berry Church emphasizes thoughtful reflection on the Christian faith. We encourage spiritual seeking while also aiming to be a supportive grace-centered community for everyone involved. As a Christian congregation, we desire to engage and encounter God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, with our worship and sermons aimed at knowing, loving and reflecting Jesus Christ (our Lord, Savior and Treasure) more deeply and authentically.
At Mount Berry Church, we experience the love of God through active, believing trust (faith) in the life, death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. By engaging God in Worship, Scripture and Sacrament, we are reminded afresh of God's grace, love and power, and are renewed by the Holy Spirit in true faith, hope and love. We also experience the love of God through sharing the grace, compassion, and kindness of Christ with one another. To that end, and to grow as followers of Jesus, we meet in small group Bible studies throughout the week. Our worship tends to reflect the contemporary, informal worship style of the college generation, but also incorporates music and traditions that have glorified God and edified people throughout the centuries. We are a diverse fellowship, finding wisdom and value in many different Christian denominations. Above all, we strive to be authentic and earnest in our worship and fellowship.
Mount Berry Church strives to bear witness to the gracious, transforming reign of Jesus Christ (what the New Testament calls "the kingdom of God"). By the power of the Spirit alone, we attempt to serve Jesus by serving others. MBC wants to be a blessing to the entire Berry community - to students, parents, alumni, faculty and staff.
Some of the ways in which MBC seeks to serve our community include:
- Weekly worship services
- Small group Bible studies
- Outreach Events
- Make a Difference Day
- Operation Christmas Child
- 30 hour Famine
- Leadership and Fellowship Retreats
- Relay for Life
- Outreach Bible Studies
- Missions support and more
Beyond these programs, we are also challenged to put our faith into practice each day through Christ-like love and service where we live, work, study and play.
