Ladies Tea
May 3
11am-1pm

Ladies Tea

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 womensministry@millingtonbaptist.org so we can plan accordingly for food. Questions? Contact jroth@millingtonbaptist.org

Membership Class
June 22
2-5pm

MBC Membership

If the Bible is the cornerstone of our church, then membership is the cement that holds us all together. Both Jesus and Paul pointed us toward membership for our encouragement, our protection, and our instruction. We seek to carry out this vision through our three-step process to join MBC.

Membership Class – All prospective members must attend our Membership Matters class. The curriculum is composed of one 3-hour class in which we cover:

  • Articles of Faith & Doctrinal Positions
  • Church Covenant
  • Vision & Mission
  • Life as a Church
  • Next Steps

The next course is offered on June 22 from 2-5pm in the New Building-Great Room. Upon completion, those who attended are able but not obligated to sign up for a membership interview, the second step of the membership process.

Membership Interview – In a 45 minute meeting, the prospective member meets with an Elder to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his or her life. The prospective member would then sign the statement of faith and church covenant, and the application would go to the elders.

Elder Recommendation – At a regularly scheduled elders’ meeting, the pastor will review the applicant’s testimony with the other elders. Upon receiving their collective approval, the candidate’s application proceeds to the next step: congregational affirmation.

Please RSVP to the church office or call 908-647-0594.

Sunday Schedule
 

 

Sunday Schedule

 

9am is dedicated to Sunday School for Adults, Teens and Children. At the 10:30am service, programs will be provided for children nursery—2nd Grade. Children 3rd Grade & older will attend service with their parents.


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 localministries@millingtonbaptist.org.
