Eyeglass Need at Market Street Mission: Many men who come to the Mission for help have poor eyesight. We are collecting and recycling glasses in an effort to help the men in our recovery program with vision loss. If you no longer need your used glasses, please consider donating them to the Market Street Mission. By donating them you can give a gift of vision to someone in need. You can drop off your used glasses at the front desk of the Mission located at 9 Market Street in Morristown, ship them to MSM or call to arrange for a pick up. Contact Nancy Motley at 973-538-6337.

Thanksgiving Eve Service

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, MBC will host a community Thanksgiving Eve worship service as we express our collective gratitude to an incredibly gracious and loving God. Area churches will come together and give thanks for all that God has done.

The service starts at 7 pm Wednesday. This is a casual service open to anyone in the community; everyone is welcome. Even if you aren't a member of any of the area churches, we would still love for you to come!

There will be no childcare. We encourage your family to sit together and enjoy the service. A Parents’ Room is available, when needed, for parents with infants and toddlers. Stay afterwards for a Dessert Social in the Lower Level. Bring a tasty dessert to share. We'll have hot coffee and cider. Come be a part of this holiday gathering!

We fill them up at holiday times with presents or our belongings when we move to a new home. We package them up to be pretty for a birthday. Our kids use them as toys. But what if a box was your home, your place of rest or escape from reality?

Women’s Ministries invites you to join in bringing Christmas cheer through a taste of home this holiday season to those less fortunate. You can help by baking three to six dozen home-­made cookies. (The cookies should not exceed 3" in di­ameter.) Then, join us on December 6 for a time of celebration as we pack and wrap the cookies in boxes. Stay for lunch following our packing session. Boxes are distributed through Market Street Mission in Morristown and The Relief Bus which serves in NYC and Newark.

 

Please sign up for your attendance and/or how many dozen cookies you will provide by emailing the church office or through the connection card at our Sunday morning service. Girls are wel­come to attend, however we request they be seated with their moms, grandmothers, or other adult friends accompanying them.

If you are unable to attend but would like to donate homemade Christmas cookies, please drop them off in the MBC kitchen no later than 1pm on Friday, December 5.

NOTE: If event is canceled due to inclement weather, please bring your cookies to the MBC kitchen by 11:30am on Tuesday, December 9 for boxing.


Living Nativity
December 13
5-6:30pm

Living Nativity

It was quiet and cold, just an ordinary night, many were tucked into bed. But to a first-time mom and dad, it was the night their son would be born. A night that God would enter the world in the form of a baby.

This Christmas, return to Bethlehem through a rustic remembrance of the birth of our Savior. As the story of Luke comes to life, hear the sounds of the animals, witness the fear of the shepherds as they hear the birth announcement, experience the majesty of the angels in praise and the mystery of the wise men as they travel to meet Him.

Join us December 13, 5-6:30pm for an outdoor living nativity intertwined with your favorite sing-along Christmas carols. Warm up after at our hot chocolate & coffee bar with yummy treats.
