The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a wonderful opportunity for Knitters to join together and create comfortable shawls and blankets. The items are blessed in worship and given to families and friends. This is a great way to help “cover” the community!
Sew Comfy supplies mastectomy pillows to the Piedmont Henry Hospital Cancer Navigator who gifts them to the women preparing for breast surgery. Those planning bilateral mastectomies receive two pillows and those receiving a single mastectomy receive a single pillow. The pillows are made from beautiful material and presented in gift bags, and we are told they are a special treat for the ladies. The Cancer Navigator Nurse & patients themselves give wonderful feedback about the absolute necessity of these pillows for mastectomy surgery patients, and about how much these gifts are appreciated by the women who receive them. How marvelous that we can provide some small measure of comfort during such a difficult time for a woman, both physically and emotionally!
This group meets on the first Tuesday of most months throughout the year. For more information about the ministry group, to make a donation, or if you need pillows for yourself or a loved one, please contact the church Office.
This mission began in 2011 and as of 2022, we have sent over 125 quilts to service men & women. Each quilt is handmade by our sewers and blessed during a Sunday morning service before being shipped to Landstuhl Medical Center in Germany. We aim to send 12 quilts overseas each year. We meet once a month to sew the tops together, usually on the first Wednesday morning, and welcome new sewers at any time!
Clifton Sanctuary Ministry provides a transformational experience for homeless men and we have the honor to host them several times each year at MPC. Each dinner event brings together fifty visitors along with sixty of our congregational members. We strive at each of these events to always create a place that feels right at home with eating and fellowshipping. Our wonderful MPC knitters also donate scarves and hats in the winter.
As a church we want everyone to feel appreciated, member or not. A Friend’s House is a local organization that provides a home for abused, neglected and abandoned children who are in custody of the Department of Family and Children’s Services. MPC helps support their work by providing breakfast for the children and staff once every month.

At MPC we love to show care and love through fun and spiritually uplifting cards for all occasions including birthday, get well, sympathy, and thank you cards. A team of volunteers sends the cards to church members on a rotating schedule.
Do you have a college student away from home? We’d love to send a special care package to make them feel a little more at home. The care package includes a church newsletter and special recognition for outstanding achievements.
This program is an outreach to our college-aged members. It includes e-cards for birthdays, holidays and just because. Graduates are recognized in a special manner in late April. In May, all graduates – high school, college and post-graduate – are recognized during worship. This year, the college-aged members gathered to lead Sunday worship service themselves while home on break.
The MPC Homebound Ministry serves church members who are unable to attend church services regularly due to physical limitations. Some are unable to leave home at all. Ministry members serve communion to church members in their home when requested.
Members of MPC teamed up with other churches to carry out an exciting and productive mission week in Honduras. Four dentists, assistants, adult helpers and teens filled the days with dental procedures, VBS, dental hygiene, and feeding the children of Tejeras. Approximately 65 children were seen for dental work by the dentists. Some traveled 2 hours to reach the clinic for a filling, cleaning or extraction. Over fifty Tejeras children were fed each evening. A very blessed trip with hugs, smiling faces, and COOL weather, that we did not expect. Dios te ama.

Our Relay team also attends the annual Henry County Relay event, hosting a cook out and participating in the walk.
