Missions We Support

Then Jesus came to them and said, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Matthew 28:18-20

Midwest Christian Services

First Church of Christ has been honored to support the mission of Midwest Christian Services for over 50 years. It is one of those rare opportunities where we get to suppport a mission both financially and directly. The boys and staff attend our worship services and attend Bible classes following the service each week. We also plan and implement monthly birthday parties for them at the home. We are truly blessed to have them be a part of our church family.

The mission of Midwest Christian Services is to supply needs; physical, spiritual, and emotional for the clients and staff through Christian training and environment.

Midwest Christian Services has been serving children since 1963!  MCS provides residential treatment to male adolescents, ages 8 to 18.  The average treatment duration is 12 to 18 months.  Midwest is licensed by the Department of Human Services to provide Comprehensive Rehabilitation and Supportive Residential services.  Referrals are accepted from the Department of Human Services and Juvenile Court Services.

Midwest is located in Northwestern Iowa, four miles south of Peterson and eight miles north of Highway 3 on M-27.  The rural setting enhances the treatment focus and includes the benefits of country living.
