James
The Road Less Traveled

The book of James is one of practical theology. It’s message is gritty and hard hitting; but in so many ways James is showing us how to engage in Gospel demonstration to a fallen world. If our hearts have been changed by the grace of God… we will live differently. We will approach suffering differently. We will care for the poor. We will fight injustice. We will speak words of life, not words of death. We will not hoard our wealth, rather we will be generous. And we will understand that everything we have comes from God. James shows us that our actions reveal what we truly believe. We are called to live as Gospel changed people in a fallen world… will we?

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.

Parenting Seminar
Raising an Alien Child

So much of parental decision-making can focus on helping our kids “fit in.” But 1 Peter 2:11-12 calls believers to live as aliens and strangers, in such a way that our unmistakably strange lives bring glory to God. As Christian parents, our greatest hope for our children is that they would grow to know, love, and serve God with everything they have. But those who grow to know, love, and serve God with everything they have don’t blend in. This parenting seminar will examine some key areas in which we can help our children trade the comfort of “fitting in” for the calling of standing out. 

Lunch and childcare will be provided up through 4th grade. Older students are encouraged to participate in the seminar with their parents. Please register so that we can make preparations for food and childcare!
