Ready for second phase of new facility

An open house was held to show off the new building constructed to house the Moniteau Christian Ministries Center, Inc. (MCMC), on Sept. 8, in an event dubbed "Sundaes on Saturday."


Work continues on the new building constructed to house the Moniteau Christian Ministries Center, Inc. (MCMC). With the external shell up, remaining to be completed are the interior, electric and plumbing. The building is located on Latham Road near the Hawthorn Bank facility.

Thanks to a number of donors of amounts large and small, the building completion is the first phase of the work to combine three entities — Methodist Food Pantry, Mobile Food Bank and Project Share Clothing and Resale Shop — under one roof.

Now MCMC is on its way with raising funds for the second phase of the project, the interior including plumbing and electric, and final grading of drives and landscape. The goal is completion in 2013.

According to the Mission Statement, "Moniteau Christian Ministries Center, Inc., seeks to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ in providing charitable assistance to those in need in Moniteau County by feeding the hungry and providing clothing and household goods." The Motto is "Sharing Our Blessings."

Once all three ministeries are operating in the new facility, MCMC will be better situated to serve the people of the area community.

In order to better serve the community, the organization seeks volunteers workers, as well as monetary gifts, donations and church support. MCMC is a 501(c)(3) corporation.
