Choir for Christmas We are looking for some voices to assist us with music for our Christmas Eve service. If you can carry a tune, even if you don't see yourself as someone who would have a solo, would you consider participating in the choir? We are in need of some additional folks in order to make this ministry successful. If interested, please see Jayna Mood.

Update from the Pulpit Committee (November, 2016) 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.
Ladies Bible Study There was a new Ladies Bible Study on the book of Colossians at Panera Bread. Please contact Karen D if you are interested in attending so that she may prepare the materials. Thank you!
Wednesday Evening Bible Study Bible Study is being held at MBC, every Wed. evening at 6:30pm. Please plan to attend and bring your friends!
