Why Membership 

Unlike a social club membership where the organization exists to serve the members, church membership is more akin to being in a family or sports team. This membership identifies a united group of believers who are counted on in an attempt to fulfill a common purpose of becoming a provider of God’s love and care to others. We take seriously that we are a church not for ourselves, but for others. Members commit to joining a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are called to a higher degree of responsibility, service and sacrifice. Our elders and leaders pledge to assist our members with care, counsel, prayer and teaching.

Is Church Membership Biblical?

We hope that, as the Lord leads, you make a covenant to be part of our church family.

"You are a member of Gods own family...and you belong in God's household" ~Eph 2:19

If you are interested in becoming a member please read through our three-step process below.

 


Step 1:

We want you to make an informed decision about joining our church. We periodically offer a Membership class which explains our values and beliefs and discusses the next steps to joining MBC. All prospective members are invited to attend our Membership class. This is where you will learn about the history and vision of MBC, acquaint yourself with its ministries and opportunities, and dialogue with elders and other congregants on questions you may have about the church or Christian community. The curriculum is composed of one 3-hour class in which we cover: Articles of Faith & Doctrinal Positions, Church Covenant, Vision & Mission Life. 


The next course is offered on June 20 from 6:30pm - 9:30pm. Youth & Family Ministry Building (YFMB). Upon completion, those who attended are able but not obligated to sign up for a membership interview, the second step of the membership process. 

 


Sign-up for next class
 

Baptism: For many, baptism is the first public step of obedience to Christ. If you have not been baptized following salvation, we ask you to take this step before becoming a Member.


Step 2: Meet with an Elder

The prospective member meets with an Elder for approximately 45 mins to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his or her life. 

 


Step 3: Signing the Covenant

The final step in becoming a member is to sign the statement of faith and church covenant, and the application would go to the elders.

Music Camp 2018

*Monday start time is 8:45am Tuesday - Friday: 9am – 1:30pm each day


Music Camp is a fun week of music and drama that demonstrates to children in 2nd-8th grade that Christ is the heart of the arts. Children will present  Danny & The Shacks. Rehearsals run from Monday – Friday culminating to a Friday evening performance.

In addition to performance techniques, the children have the opportunity to make new friends, share in fun activities and learn what goes on behind the scenes of a musical. There will also be daily devotionals where kids can experience first hand the impact God has on our lives.

About the Musical:

Come along on this Biblically-inspired, Won’t-Bend-Won’t-Bow-Won’t-Burn Babylonian epic, recounting the adventures of Daniel ("Danny," as we call him in our 21st-century version of the story) and his bandmates, The Shacks (better known to you Bible scholars out there as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego!).

In our re-telling of the story, three young Hebrew men named Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in conjunction with the prophet Daniel (of lions den fame), have a band called Danny & the Shacks. They embark on a roller-coaster-thrill-ride of experiences as they encounter King Neb, his golden statue, some crazy Babylonians, the fiery furnace, and of course, the infamous lions den. Through it all, the powerful truth of God’s Word and the importance of being obedient and faithful to His teaching comes through loud and clear in a storyline so fantastic and faithaffirming, it could only come from the Word of God.
