Update from the Pulpit Committee We are pleased to announce that Pastor Carl Irwin has officially agreed to serve as our Interim Pastor while we continue in the search process for a permanent pastor. Additionally, Glenda Irwin, Pastor Irwin's wife, has become a valuable asset to the music ministry here at MBC, and her accompaniment and special piano pieces have been such a blessing. We are so thankful for their service and willingness to minister with us during this time of transition! If you would like to speak to Pastor Irwin, know of someone in need of visitation or prayer, or are aware of an emergency or hospitalization, please contact Pastor Irwin via call or text on his cell phone.
