What is a Community?

You were created to be part of God’s family. At MBC, we want everyone to have the opportunity to connect with others. Communities at MBC give an opportunity for people in a similar stage of life and those with shared life experiences to connect with each other. We invite you to check out what communities are currently meeting. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the listed contact for more information.

What Communities are there?

WOMEN’S WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY 

The Wednesday Night Women’s Bible Study is back this fall meeting in person and virtually on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm. This provides an opportunity to fellowship with other sisters in Christ and grow deeper in your knowledge of the Word. For the 2021-2022 study, we will be going through an overview of the Bible through HIStory: Genesis to Revelation in 30 Weeks by Carole Schryber and Natalie Walkley. As you move through the study, you’ll have the chance to read portions from each of the 66 books of the Bible. As familiarity breeds more confidence, you can feel assured in not only what you believe, but why you believe it. We have open enrollment, so feel free to join as anytime

 

WEDNESDAY MORNING MEN’S COMMUNITY

This community gives men an early morning opportunity to study the Bible with other men, before starting the day. This fall, Wade Burnett, one of our lead pastors, will be leading a study on “Authentic Manhood.” There will be a $10 registration fee to cover the cost of the workbook for the study. Sign-up at the link below and feel free to jump in at any time this fall! Coffee and light breakfast snacks will be provided.
