If you are planning on visiting and would like to know more about Meridian Point Church, we would like to meet you. Join us on the red carpet after the service for a reception just for you! One of our staff members will be there to answer any questions you may have. We also have a special welcome packet for you!

During services, children have services in the Children’s Building. K-5th grade meet upstairs. Nursery and toddlers, ages 2-5, go downstairs. If you are needed during the service, the number given you at check-in will appear on the screen. We also have a cry room located downstairs in the hallway of the worship center.

We want you to feel at home with us and assured that we are people seeking God as best we can. Our hope is that you will find a community in which you can discover God’s purpose for your life and make a difference in your relationships, your community, and your world.

Come as you are…

You don’t have to dress up or be any particular age. We don’t care who you voted for in the last election. And please don’t feel the need to pretend about anything. Meridian Point Church is a place where God meets people where they are, and we are all far from perfect. That means anyone is welcome no matter where they are on their spiritual journey. Not formal, not fake, we’re just family.

…but don’t stay that way.

Spectators find it hard to grow at this church. We encourage you to meet some people. Get involved and go deeper. Little steps you take toward God build on one another and lead to extraordinary results. At MPC, always be looking for your next step.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ alignment=”center” css=”.vc_custom_1492456934379{background-color: #34393f !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”SERVICE TIMES” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center|color:%23ffffff” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]

Our worship is led by a full band with a modern contemporary style. Our messages tend to be conversational in style and range from studies of books in the Bible, questions from the congregation, issues that are in the news, and topics that are relevant to everyday life. We also highlight a time of communion weekly to all believers during the service. We are very casual and like to think that our times together feel more like a family “get-together” than a “service.” So dress casual and enjoy coffee and doughnuts at the Cafe!

Our weekend services offer care and programs for infants all the way up to fifth grade.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FAMILY MINISTRY” style=”outline-custom” outline_custom_color=”#ffffff” outline_custom_hover_background=”#54c8e7″ outline_custom_hover_text=”#ffffff” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fmeridianpoint.church%2Fministries%2Fchildrens-ministry%2F|||” el_class=”button-text”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1474563240476{padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”35px”][vc_custom_heading text=”Meet the staff” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_empty_space height=”35px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4132″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_circle_2″][vc_column_text]

We believe God is the Creator of everything. Genesis 1:1

We believe Jesus is exactly who the Bible says He is…  “God with us”. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died to bring us back into a right relationship with God, rose from the dead, is now in heaven preparing an eternal home for those who follow Him, and will one day return. Luke 1:1-4[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”…about salvation.” tab_id=”1474567789013-5250d315-9704″][vc_column_text]We believe we have all chosen to walk away from God and will justly die. Romans 3:236:23

We believe salvation is by the grace of God, not something we can earn on our own effort. It is found only in Jesus. Romans 6:23John 14:6Ephesians 2:8, 9

We believe the biblical response to God’s grace shown through Jesus is to turn from our sinful lives, declare Jesus as Lord, be immersed in His Name, and continue to grow in our relationship and knowledge of Him by loving Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and loving our neighbors as ourselves. Acts 2:38, 39

We believe those who have responded appropriately to God’s grace have His Spirit living in them, directing and guiding them, and serving as a “deposit” for heaven yet to come. Acts 2:382 Corinthians 5:4, 5

We believe life doesn’t stop here. There will be a judgment of every person with those who have decided to live with and for Jesus inheriting eternal life and those who have decided to live without Jesus facing eternal separation from God. Revelation 20:11-13

We believe all who have accepted Jesus as Lord are joined together in His family, the Church. Romans 12:4, 5[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1474577787222{padding-top: 40px !important;padding-right: 10% !important;padding-bottom: 50px !important;padding-left: 10% !important;background-color: #f8f8f8 !important;}”][vc_empty_space height=”35px”][vc_custom_heading text=”Our History” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_tta_accordion style=”flat” shape=”square” active_section=”1″][vc_tta_section title=”2006-2007″ tab_id=”1474568382614-bbec3db1-c4fb”][vc_column_text]We began as a campus ministry of Sunnyside Christian Church, started specifically to create a dynamic ministry in the Falcon community. In the Spring of 2006 the former Falcon Christian Church asked Sunnyside Christian Church and Church Planters of the Rockies (CPR) to partner together, take over their property, and transform the community with a new vision.

We focused our Fall Kick Off on a series called “God vs…” in which we examined the different issues that are discussed in our culture (Is there a God? What is our role in politics? Evolution or Design?) and compared it to what God would desire of us. MPC continued to seek God’s direction as we served His purpose in the Falcon area and we were thankful for all God had done in our short history. We were just as excited to see what He had planned for our future![/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”2014″ tab_id=”1475699883683-f7c30ffa-2078″][vc_column_text]After purchasing our facilities and property, we continued to grow steadily and expanded our property purchasing 10 acres to our south (for a total of 15 acres) where we built a park, walking track, and shooting range in order to host community and social events.
