EVENING SERVICE: Please plan to join us in the evening of the 26th at 6 pm when Glenn Taylor will be sharing on the topic “The Strength for Weakness”.
CONGREGATIONAL MINISTRY MEETINGS: A growing church requires regular meetings to affirm key decisions and discuss aspects of the life of the church. As such we will be moving to holding three annual meetings (if they are not needed, we will cancel them and if more are required, we’ll add them). Meetings for 2020 will be in place of Life Groups on January 29 (snow date, Feb 5), May 27, and September 30 at 7pm. At the January meeting we need to approve the proposed budget and nominating committee report, among other things. Everyone is welcome to attend but only members may vote. If you would like more information about becoming a member of MBC, please speak to the pastor or the deacons.
AV WORK DAYS Feb 1, 15 and 29 from 8:30- 1200: If you enjoy electronics, crawling in attics, running wires, plugging things, problem solving, etc, or would just like to help in the Lord’s work then we have 3 planned work mornings to install the new A/V equipment, which DV should be here by then. There will be work for everyone: those who feel confident in one area or those who’d just like to lend a helping hand. Please RSVP with Pastor Chris. VALENTINES DAY DINNER/MOVIE: Save the date! The R&R group will be hosting a dinner and movie night at the church on Friday February 14 starting at 6:30 pm. Please pray about who the Lord would have you invite to this special evening. More details will follow shortly. If you are interested in helping, please contact Kirk, Arlene or Tobi. We will have a planning meeting in the near future.
