Maundy Thursday Communion Service
From the Latin word mandatum, meaning "commandment," Maundy refers to the commands Jesus gave his disciples at the Last Supper: to love with humility by serving one another and to REMEMBER his sacrifice. It is a good thing to REMEMBER the Last Supper and Jesus’ sacrifice. It is a good thing to REMEMBER the Lord’s example of humility.

How are you celebrating this Mothers Day?
In Olde English society, ladies would gather for tea and share stories, opinions, and news within their communities. The focus was on making deep, loyal and caring connections with other women in the community, finding common ground and helping each other to succeed.
In Genesis, we read God created females for companionship & relationship. (Genesis 2:18) Webster dictionary describes this as one who is closely connected with something similar; to accompany, help, and partner. Ever feel like you need someone to talk to who will understand you and let you be who you are?
Mothers, daughters, aunts, grandmothers, best friends - women play an important role in each other’s lives. From nursery to nursing homes, ladies of ALL ages are invited to join us for a tea on Saturday, May 3 @ 11am. We will spend time learning, laughing and growing with one another in what it means to be a girl/women in today’s culture. Activities will include crafts, photo booth, mother/daughter game, and more!
Please RSVP by April 28 to email@example.com so we can plan accordingly for food. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Worship at MBC is relaxed and reverent. On Sunday morning, you'll see people dressed in everything from jeans to Sunday best. So, wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable. We're up front about the fact that the Bible is our foundation for all that we do. Sermons relate scripture’s old story to the challenges and delights of today. We are to draw from the Scriptures, the great traditions of the faith, and new expressions of the Spirit in order to have God honoring, mutually edifying worship. At MBC, we strive to do this every time we gather.
Music and arts play a large part in our worship combining creative elements, familiar and new hymns, modern worship songs and includes the MBC Choir.
Communion is offered usually at the first Sunday of the month and is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord, regardless of denominational affiliation or church background.
At Millington Baptist you'll find a mix of people from all life stages and backgrounds. Our church has people from all over central and northern New Jersey who've come with their own unique journey to God.
Relief Bus is meeting on Friday, May 9
Serve with The Relief Bus
The Relief Bus (www.reliefbus.org) consists of two former school buses now customized into mobile resource centers to help the poor and homeless. Friendly faces serve up food and love demonstrating genuine care. This allows volunteers to discover other needs and then connect people to resources and faith-based programs which often transform lives and in many cases actually save lives. The Relief Bus provides a first step to freedom and new life for those in great need.
Volunteers from MBC help prepare the food and then go out on the Relief Bus to Newark, Harlem, and the Bronx on a regular basis - either monthly or more often.
Relief Bus serves again on Friday, May 9 from 5 to 10:30pm
Contact our MBC Volunteer Coordinator Tony Iannacone at email@example.com.
