New Sermon Series
September 10 - December 25

Rooted
Growing Deep, Loving Wide, Living Tall

Who are you? Who are you … really? It is a question about your deepest identity. Who or what defines you? The answer to that foundational question will determine your actions. In the Apostle Paul’s letter to the  Ephesian church he opens up the truth that those who are in Christ are blessed with every spiritual blessing. The core of our identity is fixed and rooted in the depths of the limitless love of God. Our response to this love causes us to GROW DEEP to LOVE WIDE and to LIVE TALL for the glory of God and the sake of the Gospel. Let’s walk together through this study and become who we really are.

Eyeglasses Needed 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.

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.

MBC will serve on the Relief bus on the first Friday of the month. 

Email Dave Springer or text him at 908-331-0569.

Membership

Membership | Membership Class | Meet with Elder | Sign Covenant | Sign-up for next class

Why Membership 

Unlike a social club membership where the organization exists to serve the members, church membership is more akin to being in a family or sports team. This membership identifies a united group of believers who are counted on in an attempt to fulfill a common purpose of becoming a provider of God’s love and care to others. We take seriously that we are a church not for ourselves, but for others. Members commit to joining a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are called to a higher degree of responsibility, service and sacrifice. Our elders and leaders pledge to assist our members with care, counsel, prayer and teaching.

Is Church Membership Biblical?

We hope that, as the Lord leads, you make a covenant to be part of our church family.

"You are a member of Gods own family...and you belong in God's household" ~Eph 2:19

If you are interested in becoming a member please read through our three-step process below.

 


Step 1:

We want you to make an informed decision about joining our church. We periodically offer a Membership class which explains our values and beliefs and discusses the next steps to joining MBC. All prospective members are invited to attend our Membership class. This is where you will learn about the history and vision of MBC, acquaint yourself with its ministries and opportunities, and dialogue with elders and other congregants on questions you may have about the church or Christian community. The curriculum is composed of one 3-hour class in which we cover: Articles of Faith & Doctrinal Positions, Church Covenant, Vision & Mission Life. 


The next course is offered on November 14 from 7pm - 9:30pm. Youth & Family Ministry Building (YFMB). Upon completion, those who attended are able but not obligated to sign up for a membership interview, the second step of the membership process. 

 


Sign-up for next class
 

Baptism: For many, baptism is the first public step of obedience to Christ. If you have not been baptized following salvation, we ask you to take this step before becoming a Member.


Step 2: Meet with an Elder

The prospective member meets with an Elder for approximately 45 mins to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his or her life. 

 


Step 3: Signing the Covenant

The final step in becoming a member is to sign the statement of faith and church covenant, and the application would go to the elders.



Next Scheduled Class: November 14, 2017

Parenting Seminar
The Tech-Wise Family

Learning everyday steps in putting technology in its proper place

When do we allow our children to use an iPad, or give them a smartphone for that matter? Since we have migrated into the technological age, families are wrestling with these questions as never before. In his book, The Tech Wise Family, author Andy Crouch challenges us to put technology in its “proper place”. This does not mean we escape from the tech revolution, but that we manage it with wisdom and through a Gospel mindset.

If you have ever found technology to be a distraction in your family and unsure of its effects or how to manage its use with your children, we invite your whole family to engage in an interactive dialogue about this topic between parent and kids.

Dinner and a family photo booth will also be provided. 

 

Let us know you are coming!
