Catskill Mountain Christian Center (CMCC) originated as non-denominational charismatic Bible study in the early 1980's. Growing slowly but steadily the first several years, the group became chartered as a church and affiliated with Antioch Churches and Ministries by the end of the decade. In 1991 a building in nearby Dunraven was purchased and renovated creating a church and fellowship hall. During the 90's growth continued along with many new and exciting ministry endeavors including charity work, concerts, radio ministry, youth events, extensive renovations and an addition to the building, home groups, missions trips to various nations, guest speakers, conferences and the opening of Catskill Mountain Christian Academy.
A particular high point was joining other community groups in relief work during a local flood tragedy in 1996 and again in 2011 due to Hurricane Irene. Hundreds of man hours were coordinated and thousands of dollars in emergency assistance was raised and distributed to the needy in our region by CMCC as a result of these devastating events.
As CMCC’s growth continued an ideal property on Main Street, Margaretville was purchased and the present multi-purpose building was renovated by December 2000. The Family Table Community Assistant Program (CAP) was added shortly after providing food to low income families in our region. Since then, a beautiful chapel has been constructed, rounding out our ability to provide a full-service ministry center for our region.
