We appreciate your interest in the programming at the MCC.
Our sermons, Friday Family Nights, weekend/weekday workshops/programs, and documentary screenings are a shared community experience that bring congregation members together for up to one to two hours (longer for workshops) for a Khutbah, lecture, presentation, performance, or workshop/program from specialists in a variety of disciplines and backgrounds and who reflect diverse views and community interests.
The goal of the talks, sermons, and workshops/programs at the MCC is to stimulate thought and conversation on a broad range of exciting subjects for American Muslims. Great speaker and event suggestions regularly come from our congregation members and youth, including many former congregation members who have moved and heard a local speaker who fits MCC’s speaker & program ethos.
The MCC Event Committee reviews and selects recommendations for programming. The MCC has a no-fundraising policy (see how we support Bay Area nonprofits here and community businesses here). The MCC Religious Committee then vets any new speakers and presenters on religious topics who have not spoken before at MCC. See our Khateeb guidelines here. You may also submit your request to MCC’s community partners, WVMA and MCA.
