Convening the community of faith since 1941

to meet the needs of Muskegon County

Welcome to Muskegon County Cooperating Churches

Muskegon County Cooperating Churches is Muskegon County’s oldest and largest ecumenical ministry. Together we discern needs in the community and create social service programs to meet those needs. We occasionally facilitate educational forums and or distribute educational and worship resources.

Cooperating Churches organizes community worship events, celebrating Christian unity in a richly diverse faith community. We provide information services to help connect faith congregations, social agencies, and the broader community.

Our Mission

Moved by the love of Christ,

we seek reconciliation and justice for all,

reaching across barriers that divide

to alleviate poverty, both spiritual and physical.

Our Programs

Mobile Food Pantry

The food we distribute comes from the Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank Inc. drawn primarily from the surpluses of local and national food and grocery products companies. See the Food Pantry page for Mobile Food Pantry Schedule and more details.

Muskegon Depot Delivery

The Muskegon Depot Delivery Program brings food ordered by local pantries to the Mart Dock every other week. To participate, pantries must be certified by Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank, Inc. The Muskegon Depot Delivery Program is supported by a generous gift from the Thomas & Geraldine Seyferth Fund of the Community Foundation for Muskegon County.
