The purposes of the BCM and CMI are to encourage student fellowship, to develop student leadership skills, to provide opportunities for the study of the Bible and practice of its teachings, to organize students for service and ministry projects, to assist students in communicating the meaning of their faith in significant ways, and to offer guidance as students face crises and critical choices in life. Membership is open.
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is a student organization whose mission on the Mid-South Community College campus is to present to current, former and future athletes and others who enjoy sports the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.
MSCC Book Club
The Book Club is an open membership organization for faculty, staff, and students who enjoy reading. The club explores works from various authors to facilitate open discussion. The Book Club members will select one book per month from a broad selection to read and openly discuss at a selected venue.
