MBC is serving on the Relief Bus
Friday, March 6

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, March 5,  from 5 to 10:30pm

Our 2015 Service Dates are:
March 6
April 3
May 1
June 5

August 7

Draw Near - An Evening of Worship
Sunday, March 15
6pm

This evening worship service on Sunday, March 15 at 6pm will help renew our minds toward our Annual Meeting and prepare us for this pivotal church year. What blessings and opportunities does God have in store for our church this year? “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8) Perhaps you've been attending church for years, but you've never really drawn near to God, nor have you sensed His nearness — even in your own private devotions and prayers. Scripture reminds us it is the purpose for which we were created. So, come...sing, pray, rest, seek, shout and worship!

Messiah in the Passover
March 29
10:30am

Is Passover outdated? Is it only for the Jewish community? Or, is Passover for all of us? Perhaps the unleavened bread and Passover wine of the Last Supper that Jesus shared with his disciples was just the beginning. Celebrate Messiah in the Passover with guest speaker Dr. Mitch Glaser, President of Chosen People Ministries, on Palm Sunday, March 29 at 10:30am. Children Kindergarten and older will attend the worship service with their parents. Childcare for nursery through preschool will be provided.

Messiah in the Passover is a visual message that illustrates not only Israel's freedom from Slavery in Egypt, but also how individuals can be redeemed from the bondage of sin. Hear about the symbolic meanings of Passover and see how they relate to the New Testament and Jesus fulfillment of this ancient, traditional feast. This powerful presentation provides insight into Jewish traditions and help us understand the common heritage we share in Christ.

 


Maundy Thursday Communion Service
April 2
7pm

Maundy Thursday Communion Service
April 2
7pm

In contrast to joyful Easter celebration, Maundy Thursday services are typically more solemn occasions, marked by the shadow of Jesus' betrayal. From the Latin word mandatum, meaning "commandment," Maundy refers to the command Jesus gave his disciples at the Last Supper: "Do this in remembrance of Me." Jesus' command seems very simple, but the understanding of what happened that night is far from simple. Why is the importance of remembering Communion so significant for Christians? Come experience our Maundy Thursday Communion Service, April 2 at 7pm. Together, we will worship and "break bread" while focusing on the mandate to love with humility by serving one another while remembering His ultimate humility and sacrifice for us. Simultaneously "Journey to the Cross" for children (preschool through 4th grade) and nursery will be provided.

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt

In olden days, dyed and painted chicken eggs were hidden for children to find as a way to celebrate the beginning of spring. Bring your basket and join us for a traditional Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 4 at 10am.

Separate areas will be provided for preschool and elementary age children. After the search, stick around for miscellaneous prizes like smallest egg, largest count, etc.

We’ll also have some old-fashioned games and crafts and some healthy snacks. Invite your friends and family to this free event.

If bad weather occurs, all activities will be held indoors.
