GIVE

Our God is a God of abundance and He loves to give. He sacrificed willingly on the cross and then invited us into fullness of life. As His children, we are called to live like Him. Our generosity in giving is a demonstration of God’s character and a response to what He has done for us. Thank you for giving to our church and to the work of His greater Kingdom.

Regular Schedule:
 
MACC has three different classes that meet each Sunday. Children join parents in the sanctuary for service until they are dismissed after the worship time. Our teachers utilize the 252 BASICS curriculum for the Pre-K through Elementary group and the ELEMENTS curriculum for the middle school group. 
 
The safety of your children is our biggest priority. We have a weekly check-in system for all children through Grade 5 who attend our children’s programs. Children will not be dismissed from their classes unless a parent shows their child’s coordinating identification label to his or her teacher. Come to the foyer of the sanctuary when you first arrive and someone will gladly get you set-up and answer any questions you may have!
 

  

Explorer Girl

explorers | WALKING BABIES – 3 YEARS

Children in this age group love to discover new things and explore their surroundings. Our caregivers provide supervision and care for children who are too young to sit and focus on a Bible lesson. We have an area with toys and books to keep little ones entertained and busy while you enjoy the service. 
Seeker Boy

seekers | 4 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN

Children are starting to learn about God and how He can impact their lives. Teachers help children learn about Godly values and how to apply this knowledge through practical applications in daily life. Teachers utilize age-appropriate curriculums, incorporating worksheets, discussions, and craft projects, to help children discover God’s love and build a foundation for spiritual growth.
 
Trekker Boy

trekkers | 1ST GRADE – 5TH GRADE

This is the age of growing and trying to figure out new things about themselves. Conflict with friends, parent expectations, and a growing sense of self awareness can make it hard to know what to do and where to go in life. Our teachers strive to provide an environment where students can share, build community, and take ownership of their faith.
 

Nursery

Babies
babies | NON-WALKING BABIES & THEIR PARENTS
 
MACC offers a nursery with toys and rocking chairs for young non-walking babies and parents to enjoy the worship service during the sermon time. The nursery is also equipped with a closed-circuit monitor for watching the service comfortably while your baby is playing or napping. Please feel free to nurse your baby as well.

Outdoor Service Reservations

Outdoor services will be held at 1:30 PM on the last Sunday of the month in the courtyard of Hillside Church – Lucas Valley (2000 Las Gallinas Ave., San Rafael). Given social distancing guidelines and the size of the courtyard, seating capacity is limited. As a result, we are asking attendees to reserve seats prior to attending. You can use the link below to reserve your seats. Note: All reservations must be made by the SATURDAY before each service.

 
 
 
Parents: We are excited to offer a separate MACC Kids Children’s Church experience (pre-K to 6th). Please reserve your seats first, then reserve their spots using the second link. All other ages are welcome to attend with their parents as long as they are able to follow our gathering guidelines and remain in their seat for the duration of the service (45 minutes).
 
Need to cancel? Please do so here as soon as possible, so that we can release your seats. You may also use the “Cancel Registration” button on your confirmation email.
 

Questions? Common FAQs

 
What are you doing to make these services safe during COVID?
 
We take the safety and health of our congregation very seriously. To make these services as safe as possible, we will be following the safety precautions and guidelines below. These include:
 
  • Wearing masks at all times
  • Observing 6ft social distancing at all times
  • Disinfecting touched surfaces before and after each service
  • Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the courtyard
  • Taking temperatures before entering the courtyard
  • Attendees arriving together in the same vehicle may sit next to one another; otherwise, seats will be spaced out approximately 6ft apart from other seats
  • Attendees should arrive no earlier than 1:15PM, so that volunteers and leaders can have time to set-up

Why do we need to reserve a seat? 

In order to maintain social distancing, we need to limit the number of people attending each service. Reservations allow us to ensure that all who attend will have a seat, as well as allow us to track who attends the service for safety reasons.

What if I reserved seats but can no longer attend?  

If you reserved seats and will no longer be able to attend or are not feeling well, please email us ASAP, so that we can we release your seats. You may also use the “Cancel Registration” button on your confirmation email.
 

Will services be cancelled due to poor weather?  

Our outdoor service will be cancelled if the weather is poor. If we decide we cannot meet, we will email attendees prior to the service, and we will have a Community Livestream Service over Zoom (Meeting ID: 648 385 3287 / Passcode: church)

Is there something for my kids?

We will have a separate MACC Kids gathering for children pre-K to 6th grade led by Pastor Jeff in a separate outdoor area of the church. All other ages are welcome to attend with their parents as long as they are able to follow our gathering guidelines and remain in their seat for the duration of the service (45 minutes). All children must adhere to the safety guidelines above (masks, social distancing, temperature checks, etc.)
 
What if I don’t want to attend in-person?
If you choose not to attend our in-person outdoor service, we will be livestreaming the service at macc.online.church.
 
I have more questions. Who should I contact?
Feel free to contact us at info@marinchurch.org with any questions or concerns. We hope to safely see you all soon!

WHAT TO EXPECT 

I’m New Here — Now What?

The best place to start is probably one of our Sunday morning services, which begin at 11:30am and usually run to 12:45pm. Afterwards, we have a lunch gathering, which is a great way to meet other people and enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal!

What about my kids?

We have a variety of programs for your kids, depending on their ages.

For babies and parents, we have a safe, cozy nursery with a live-feed of the sermon, or your kids are more than welcome to stay with you and enjoy our Sunday morning service. We also have a special children’s program designed for children who are walkers up through Grade 8.  All children through Grade 8 will join us in the Sanctuary for our music time and will then be dismissed for their Sunday School classes afterwards. The first week of each month, the Middle School will join the adults for the entire Worship Service. 
 
The safety of your children is our biggest priority. We have a weekly check-in system for all children through Grade 5 who attend our children’s programs. Children will not be dismissed from their classes unless a parent shows their child’s coordinating identification label to his or her teacher. Come to the foyer of the sanctuary when you first arrive and someone will gladly get you set-up and answer any questions you may have!
 
Do I have to dress up?

No, you don’t. We encourage people to dress comfortably. For some, that may mean dressing up, but for most, it simply means wearing casual clothes. The Bible only instructs us to dress modestly and decently so we don’t burden people unnecessarily by requiring them to dress up in clothes they don’t normally wear just to “go to church.” We just want everyone to come with a proper reverence for God, whether it might mean khakis, tees, or a summer dress.

Will I have to stand up in front of people?

While the community of MACC is genuinely interested in getting to know you and want to make you feel welcome, we will try our best never to make you feel uncomfortable. So just relax and enjoy meeting people at your own pace.

Do I have to sing?

Music is a big part of our Sunday service. That’s because we believe songs are a great way to express our worship to God. You might notice that some people sing pretty well; and there are others who sing, well…enthusiastically! Our focus is on praising God, not on ourselves. If you prefer not to sing aloud, that’s perfectly fine.

What’s your musical style like?

We prefer a more contemporary style of music, although sometimes we may sing more traditional hymns. We recognize music is very personal and everyone has a favorite style, so it’s difficult to match everyone’s musical preferences. Therefore, we focus on music that we think honors God and brings our community closer to Him.

Do I have to pray?

Don’t worry, you won’t be asked to pray aloud. Prayers during Sunday services are usually led by our leaders or pastor. Just pray along with us in your heart as the words are spoken.

I don’t have a Bible…is that okay?

We love to read from the Bible because we believe it is God’s primary way of communicating with us. Some people may choose to bring their own Bible to church. If you don’t have one, don’t worry. Most of the time, the verses will be displayed on the projector screen so everyone can follow along.
