Fellowship plans to move to new location
Marshall Community Fellowship,
a group that has been
gathering in the Campus Christian
Center, will be moving their meeting
location over the winter break.
When students arrive back at
Marshall in January, MCF will
have moved to 1502 4th Avenue
and into the second story
of Lattas building.
Glenn Larue, pastor of MCF,
said the congregation will still
meet on Sunday mornings and
will continue to have family hour
at 10 a.m. and worship at 11 a.m.
Larue said MCF has had an
agreement to temporarily meet
in the Christian Center through
the end of this year and that
they only recently found a long
The Christian Center was
gracious to allow us to meet
there for a temporary period,
but we have known about our
need to move for a long term
solution, Larue said. Its like
God is coming through just at
the perfect time for us.
Larue said they will be walking
over to see the site after the
service next Sunday so students
will know where to go when
they come back from break.
MCF has always purposed
to be within walking distance
of the campus so students who
dont have transportation can
have a place to worship, Larue
said. What is awesome about
this location is that it is just a
block off of campus.
Autumn Mathews, a Spanish
education sophomore and member
of MCF, said the move will give
the church opportunities to grow.
I feel like it makes us more
of a solid church, Mathews
said. We will still be Marshall
Community Fellowship, but we
are growing in independence.
Mathews said having a
church so close to campus has
given her a place to call home
while she is at Marshall.
It gives you a place of love and
community when you arent at
home, Mathews said. It gives
you a chance to be involved with
people who arent just students
and gives you a chance to fellowship
Larue said MCF is committed
to staying close to Marshall so
they can continue reaching out
to students and engaging the
We were committed to that
even when we didnt know of
a location that would work,
Larue said. So the fact that God
showed us this in the last two
months is really exciting.
MCF will continue to meet
in the Christian Center on Sundays
for the remainder of the
year and plans to be moved into
the new building by the first
Sunday in January.
