Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a special opportunity to bring the love of Jesus to children around the world in a very tangible way during the Christmas season. Here's what you'll want to know about being part of Operation Christmas Child at MBC and how you can learn more about it. If you have any questions, please contact Peggy Clabough at 908-647-0011 or peggy@littlefootprintsnj.com.

1. Pick up an Operation Christmas Child brochure and shoebox at the Welcome Center in the MBC lobby.

2. Fill up your shoebox with all sorts of age and gender appropriate goodies. Click here for a video from Samaritan's Purse about how to pack your shoebox, including suggested items, what to avoid, and how to pack treats like candy. Don't forget that kids love to receive a handwritten note, picture of your or your family, or even a hand drawn picture from your child. School supplies and personal necessity items are in high demand. A donation to help cover shipping costs is greatly appreciated and is required in order to track the destination of your box.

3. Bring your package to the MBC Education Building second floor foyer (just inside ramp door) or Sunday morning check in station for collection. Shoeboxes are due by Sunday, November 17 to allow time for packing and transporting to the local drop off location.

4. Follow the journey of your box(es) here by making your donation online using a credit or debit card. You will receive a special shoe box label included in your e-mail receipt.   Make sure to follow all instructions before dropping your box off.

Underground Sessions
November 1 5-6:30pm

What is Tolerance? 
 

We live in a culture that equally values and affirms all lifestyles and creeds. But, how can we faithfully preach Jesus and the Bible in a world that values tolerance more than truth? Underground Sessions will explore the complicated issue of Tolerance. We’ll enjoy a community dinner, participate in an interactive lecture and roundtable discussion with Q&A that challenge our world views. Invite your friends and feel free to bring your kids to this MBC multi-generational experience.

 


MBC is serving on the Relief Bus
November 14

5:30-10pm

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, November 14  from 5 to 10:30pm

 

Contact our MBC Volunteer Coordinator Tony Iannacone at localministries@millingtonbaptist.org.

Thanksgiving Eve Service

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!
