First Steps

Don't know where to start?

Here are some great first steps.

We have carefully crafted a series of four classes to take you from getting started at Mecklenburg Community Church to developing a full relationship with God. These four classes listed below are your guide to getting involved at Meck and growing in community.

Starting Line

Explore Meck. In this on-demand video called Starting Line, we take you on a comprehensive tour of Meck. You’ll get a good sense of our culture, what you can expect to experience at our online and in-person campuses and get a glimpse into the impact Meck could potentially have in your life. We want you to explore God comfortably, within our community at your own pace.

Training Camp

Grow in faith. Training Camp, a short, on-demand video, unpacks the vision of the Christian life so that you can get excited about where God is leading you as you get to know Him better. You’ll learn how to mature in your faith and how the Meck Institute - and even The Grounds Bookstore and Café - can guide you in that process. Bottom line: We're here so serve you in your relationship with Jesus.

Game Time

Serve with Meck. You were made for a purpose and equipped with a unique combination of gifts, passions, personality and skills. Yet it sometimes can be difficult to figure out exactly how God wants to use you or what role you might play in His big adventure through the local church. Through our Spiritual Gifts Assessment, you’ll start the process of examining the person God made you to be and exploring how you can make a real difference with your life. What are your spiritual gifts? Want to find the exact role for you? Take the Game Time class to find out.

Team Life

Join the team. While we want you to take your time exploring the Christian faith, we ultimately hope for you to put your faith in Jesus and then join the Meck team; that is, our family of believers. Team Life is where senior pastor Jim White will tell you more about Meck - where we've been and where we're headed – and what it means to become a church member. Ready to become a member of Meck? Join us for a Team Life class.
