Empowering Women's Worship
Women | Together we strive to connect the women of MBC to become Empowered Disciples of Christ. We hope to take part in each other’s life stories and God’s greater narrative. We aspire to broaden and deepen our understanding of God and each other; share in struggles and joys; renew and connect in our communities, families and workplaces.
Tuesdays: 9:15am Morning Break: Bible Study
Tuesdays: 7:00pm Evening Edition: Book Club/Bible Study
Moms in Prayer
Our events are intended to encourage Renewal, Growth, Connection & Action within community.
We embrace women from all backgrounds and walks of life to join together in care, growth, love, & faith.
The Women’s Ministry provides opportunities for women from MBC and the surrounding community to connect, grow in their faith, discover ways to partner in ministry, and give back to others.
Are you looking for a place to connect with other women while discovering God’s Word together? Bible studies meet on Tuesday morning and evening in our Youth & Family Ministry Building on campus. We also host various events for women throughout the year. We are passionate about helping women build relationships with God and each other.

A great champion of prayer once compared the praying Christian to a blacksmith stoking his fire. It’s in the intimacy of prayer—when we’re alone with God—that we keep the iron hot and God skillfully refines and shapes us. And like the blacksmith trade, prayer is not for those timid of work. Intercession is a difficult, perplexing, and solitary battle that is won or lost from one moment to the next.
But the battle to pray is worth fighting. Prayer anchors the soul while lifting us to the very throne of God. It’s the language of heaven and the key to unleashing God’s power in our lives. In Alone with God, John MacArthur explores the anatomy of effective prayer and presents a refreshing, biblical model you can begin following today.

Two years after nearly losing her life in the Boston Marathon bombing, Annie David is still far from “Boston strong.” Instead she remains isolated and defeated―plagued by guilt over her niece, crippled in the blast, and by an antique ring alongside a hazy hero’s face. But when she learns the identity of her rescuer, will he be the hero she’s imagined? And can the long-past history of the woman behind the ring set her free from the guilt and fears of the present?
As a woman alone in a rebellious town, Liberty Caldwell finds herself in a dangerous predicament. When a British lieutenant, Alexander Smythe, comes to her rescue and offers her employment, Liberty accepts. As months go by, Alexander not only begins to share his love of poetry with her, but protects Liberty from the advances of a lecherous captain living in the officers’ house where she works.
Mounting tensions explode in the Boston Massacre, and Liberty’s world is shattered as her brother, with whom she has just reunited, is killed in the fray. Desperate and alone, she returns home, only to be assaulted by the captain. Afraid and furious toward redcoats, Liberty leaves the officers’ home, taking with her a ring that belonged to Alexander.
Two women, separated by centuries, must learn to face their fears. And when they feel they must be strong, they learn that sometimes true strength is found in surrender.

This is a study of the fruit of the Spirit, distinguishing the biblical fruit from the world’s version. The wrinkle is that it approaches cultivation of the fruit from the ground of abiding in Christ. It is only by abiding in Christ that we bear authentic fruit, abundant fruit, fruit that will endure.
In Galatians, where the Apostle Paul lists nine of the fruit of the Spirit and urges us to walk by the Spirit so that we will not gratify the desires of the flesh, he presses the rhetorical question: “Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?” (Galatians 3:3)
The same thing can be said of our union with Christ. Having found life in Christ, are you now finding fruitfulness in your own strength? Christ is the ground for spiritual life and spiritual maturation.
