Connecting people to Jesus and to one another.


We take missions very seriously at Middle Cross Church.  For more than 150 years we have been committed to mission efforts locally, nationally, and globally.  Whether it is planting churches in Chattanooga or feeding orphans in Kenya, MCC is involved.
