About MCF
Meadows Christian Fellowship has been ministering to Rolling Meadows and the surrounding communities for 65 years. Our mission is to help people know, love, and become like Jesus Christ. Over the past three years, we have been on a journey to sharpen our focus on God’s movement of kingdom multiplication with a disciple-making mindset. We believe this is a season of new beginnings.

Our Church and Community                                                                                                              Rolling Meadows is a racially, socially, and economically diverse city of just over 25,000 people in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. World-class everything is just minutes away. Here in town, we have three elementary schools, a junior high school that is literally in our backyard, and a high school with an outstanding football team. Oh, we also have a new development of 111 townhomes right next door to our property. The opportunities for life and ministry are abundant.

Our fellowship averages 130 people on a Sunday. We have space for more. We have a large building with a gymnasium that sits on 4.5 acres. We are debt-free and committed to staying that way. We have partnered with a Mandarin-speaking Chinese congregation for over 40 years. We once had a Spanish-speaking congregation and dream of having one again. We have had a long-standing Awana program, a super-creative week-long summer arts and music camp for kids K–12 called Inspiration Studio, and a summer car show that is one of the biggest around.
But with the reality of life in 2020, there’s not much going on right now.

We believe the COVID pandemic has given us a chance to slow down and evaluate. As leaders, we see this as an opportunity to focus on equipping our local body to be more effective and passionate disciple-making-disciples.

Church and Community Overview

We are a Word driven, prayer focused church who’s purpose is to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ. Our single Sunday worship service offers a blend of contemporary and traditional music. Our members are involved with many local ministries and organizations. 

New Life Church of Central Michigan is nestled in Mid-Michigan between the communities of Mt. Pleasant and Shepherd. We are uniquely positioned near a large University (CMU) and the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe. Mt. Pleasant offers fabulous parks, highlighted by the Chippewa River, many family activities and a vibrant downtown shopping district. It has the appeal of a big city combined with the charm of a small town. The Village of Shepherd is a small and friendly town with strong community involvement. It hosts the Maple Syrup Festival each year in which we enjoy participating.

Formerly known as Shepherd Church of the Brethren, New Life Church of Central Michigan was founded in 1915 in the Church of the Brethren denomination. We have always been a strong family church with some current members related to the church founders. We sponsored the first Vacation Bible School in Isabella County the summer of 1927 and this has been a strong ministry of ours throughout the years. 

A college and career ministry was initiated in 1996 called Standing in the Gap. While starting at Central Michigan University it spread to Ferris State University, Saginaw Valley University and Northwood University. This ministry was birthed out of New Life but is not now a current ministry of our church. We currently support the CRU college ministry at CMU and Mid-Michigan Community College.

In 1997 the church name was changed to New Life Christian Fellowship. Around this time, we had two Sunday morning worship services for about 6 years before returning to one. Over the years many improvements and several additions were made to the building but in the early 2000’s we decided to build a new building on the same property. In 2009 we had the first service in our new building and a few years later the original building was demolished. 

Due to changes within the Church of the Brethren regarding their stance on scripture, we as a church left the denomination and joined with Converge MidAmerica as an independent church in 2016. We also changed our name again to New Life Church of Central Michigan. Our reliance on scripture for direction drives us to fulfill our purpose as the body of Christ.
