The Messiah Community Center is located at 2801 Magnolia (just under a mile east of church).  It is a space for classes, community connection events and the offices of Compass Educational Programs.  A representative of DeSales Community Development also has regular hours there to help connect people in the community with the resources they need.  Drop in for a program or a cup of coffee during business hours.  

The MCC is looking for volunteers!  Check out our needs here. You can also request to hold a community event or program at the MCC. Check out more details and submit a request here.
