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 the property, and transform the community with a new vision. After the campus sat closed for the Summer of 2006, we re-opened the campus as Meridian Point Church on November 5, 2006.
In the Spring of 2008 we hired our current Lead Pastor, Barry Zimmerman. We introduced the idea of The CORE; Corporate Worship, Others Focused, Relationships, and Education. In the Fall we began a new education ministry on Wednesday nights called Adult Bible Courses (ABCs) and The "Y" for children.
In the Fall of 2009 we refinished our Worship Center with updated carpet and paint. We changed the facing direction of our Worship Center as well and watched our attendance increase by 27 percent. At the same time, members of our congregation partnered with us and launched new ministries to meet needs within our congregation and community.
In November of 2010 we became financially independent of all outside sources and began the process of establishing leadership within our congregation. We also determined to begin giving 20 percent of our giving directly to outside missions. We continued our support to Church Planters of the Rockies, began support of Mision Caribe (a mission in Honduras to which we've also taken mission trips), and set up a fund to encourage short term missions.
As we have continued to be blessed with consistent growth, in the Spring of 2011 we experimented with a Saturday night service and began work a six year plan involving significant giving to missions and church planting. MPC continues to seek God's direction as we serve His purpose in the Falcon area and as we are thankful for all God has done in our short history we are just as excited to see what He has for our future!
