Women's Exercise Class
Thursdays at 6:30pm
PiYo is an exercise class for women that is being offered here on the MBC campus. It is a full body workout with no weights. It is high-intensity and low impact while incorporating balance and flexibility along with strength building and core conditioning. Classes are offered Thursday evenings at 6:30pm in the YFMB Great Room.
Unrelenting grace toward a people fated for ruin.
What was the most unbelievable moment you experienced? Was it the birth of a child? Devastation after a massive storm? Or maybe it was change that you saw in someone’s life because God intervened. Whatever the case, if you live long enough you will utter the words: “I can’t believe it.”
The story of Jonah is unbelievable. A prophet of God called to preach to his enemies, who thinks he can run away from God: unbelievable! He is thrown overboard, destined for ruin, but God saves him with a fish: unbelievable! He preaches to one of the earth’s wickedest people and they turn to God: unbelievable! When you stop and think about the character of God… it really is not unbelievable; it is simply who God is.
Too often we get caught up with the big fish in Jonah, but the real story is about a God who saves and is involved in history. He steps into our stories in unbelievable ways. In Jonah, we see God’s heart for people who are rebellious against him and far from him. People fated for ruin. And the unbelievable truth is that God has unrelenting grace towards these people… who are just like us. Will you embrace the unbelievable or run away from him?

Rush Fall Retreat
Rush Fall Retreat
November 4-6, 2016
Unlike the way we see ourselves through the filters of Instagram and Snapchat that show us as we’d like to be or wish we were, Jesus sees us with #NOFILTER, seeing and loving us as we truly are. Clint Watkins will lead teens on this journey to authenticity guided by Philippians 4:13. This weekend will challenge and comfort teens’ hearts.
All teens from grades 7-12 are invited.
Operation Christmas Child and
Sponsor a child
A simple gift has the power to bring hope to the life of a child at home and abroad!
The holidays are a joyful season of giving! Before all the hustle and bustle begins, would you consider sponsoring a child, at home and abroad?
To impact kids at home, you can give to the Little Footprints Learning Center scholarship fund. This fund enables families to give their children a gospel-centered learning experience in the early years of their lives. Our goal this year is to raise $15,000. Donations can be made via online giving or by using a Sponsor a Child envelope.
To help kids across the globe, you can participate in Operation Christmas Child. This year, our goal is to pack 200 boxes. Boxes and information can be picked up in the sanctuary foyer. The drop off deadline is November 13.
Both LFLC and OCC are committed to sharing the gospel with children and their families by showing them Jesus’ love. Please help us reach our goals and share Jesus with kids both home and abroad!

All About That Baby
Performances: Saturday, December 3 at 2pm and 4pm
Angels and shepherds and…talking sheep?
Oh, my! People everywhere are making the journey to the place of their births, in compliance with Caesar’s decree that everyone should register for the census. This results in the little town of Bethlehem overflowing with people. Nathaniel, a lovable but scatter-brained, late-for-work shepherd, bumps into two of those travelers, Joanna and Simone, as he rushes to take his shift at watching the flock. The other shepherds (his sisters Miriam and Abigail), along with Judah, are waiting for Nathaniel — late once again—to arrive. Thus begins a story that is All About That Baby, with some shepherds, angels, “out-of-towners”… and singing, talking sheep to guide us along the way!
