Commuting from NYC?

General Information

Coming to MGC from the city may seem like a daunting trek, but we hope to make it as easy as possible. There are a number of buses that leave the George Washington Bridge Terminal (178th Street on the A Line Subway) into NJ in the morning.

From the NJ side, we will provide a shuttle from Fort Lee to our church facility (a five-minute drive) for all NYC attendees and guests. 

Contact: We’ve set up a Google Voice number exclusively for MGC Shuttle System use. Please call 201-500-4386 if you missed the last shuttle or if you are late for any reason. We will absolutely make sure you get to church!
