Thank you Health Care Heroes, for serving our Veterans!

MBC continues to share our gratitude to our community by delivering lunch from Paolo’s Kitchen to our local VA Hospital Health Care Heroes. Thank you for all you do!!

We care & appreciate you and your passion for our children!

We wanted to take this opportunity to send a word of encouragement from all of us here at Millington Baptist Church for all of your efforts during this challenging time.
So many teachers, instructors and medical professionals have gone above and beyond their usual duties of caring for our children. Rest assured, YOU are appreciated and are in our prayers. It is our pleasure to acknowledge you with this small gesture of thanks. 

“…we are very touched by the church’s thoughtfulness and it gives us such encouragement that others are thinking of us, especially during this time. Please share our gratitude and thanks to those who organized the gifts” ~ Ceder Hill Teachers

Serving those who “Serve & Protect”

MBC kept loving our community by delivering lunch, from one of our local restaurants, to the police officers in Bernard’s Township– Thank you for all you do!!

“Thank you” from our Mayor to our MBC community.

“… I also want to thank you for MBC’s continued volunteer efforts with regard to our Senior Hotline and cannot applaud your efforts enough for making such a positive difference to those in our community who need the most help… Again, thank you for making such an impact on our community during this very challenging time of need and your thoughtful assistance to our Police, first responders and educators.”

 

“A big thank you to the Church of St. James, the Rotary Club of Bernardsville, and Millington Baptist Church for all their ongoing efforts. Once the senior is matched, that organization then communicates with them regularly if they need future assistance. People helping people. I am very grateful for all the hard work so many of you are putting in daily. Thank you very much.”

 

Very sincerely yours,

Mayor Jim Baldassare, Bernards Township

Shut In, But Not Shut Out

The 56ers girls class (5th and 6th graders) and their teachers, Linda and Linda, meet weekly on a Zoom call. Last week, they made encouraging cards and sent them to people who were shut in at home…before we all became “shut ins”! We wanted to encourage people who may feel especially lonely during this time. 

Thank you from the Hentschel Family.

Dear MBC Church Family, Thank you for your steadfast prayer support for Juli’s dad, Adam Perrotti. After being diagnosed with COVID-19 and being on a ventilator for 17 days, he had been given a poor prognosis and told to start “end of life” care. But because of our merciful God, and after being hospitalized for 46 days, he made a miraculous turn around and he was recently discharged! It’s been a long journey, and we are supporting him through rehab, but we have seen God’s hand throughout these last 6 weeks and we are filled with hope. We would like to thank you for never giving up on our prayer-hearing God.

“He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.”  (Ps 107:20) With Love, Pastor Dave and Juli

Neighbor Connect with Feeding Hands
MBC is participating in a new initiative from our partner organization, Feeding Hands. The goal of Neighbor Connect is to spark a “viral” program of neighbor connection that encourages folks to safely connect with their immediate neighbors and “work from home” to feed and care for their neighborhood and community.w

Sending Fun to Special Folks

Adults with special needs and their caregivers across 20 group homes throughout Somerset County, have been and sheltered in place since early March. They were thrilled to receive games, puzzles, craft supplies and activity books from Heather Wenzel, Denise Midthassel and Laura Garcell.

Fighting the Good Fight

Our own Laura Williams and her team of frontline warriors nursing COVID-19 patients back to health in Bergen County.

Social Distance Delivery

Gina Muller delivers her delicious baked goods to friends and neighbors from a safe distance and her 6-foot delivery pole!

It would be easy to see a worldwide quarantine as something that would stop ministry altogether. But we have seen the gospel continue to impact students even in the midst of challenging constraints.

The book of Acts ends by highlighting a surprising opportunity in the midst of a similar limitation. Paul is under house arrest, but his “stay-at-home” order does not prevent the gospel from going forward. We’re told that he welcomed visitors for two years and “proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance” (Acts 28:31).

For many of us, the last two months have felt like house arrest. But while the coronavirus has certainly changed campus ministry, the gospel has continued to advance “without hindrance.” We’re grateful for the technology that has allowed us to continue discipling students as we proclaim the kingdom of God and teach about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Here are some highlights of how we have seen that happen.

Thank You

It’s because of your prayers and generosity that our ministry has been able to continue. In the midst of uncertainty, you have remained faithful partners. We are so grateful for each of you.

Please know that we are thinking of you and are here for you, too. We recognize that you may be struggling, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need someone to talk to

Lancaster-Area Large Group Meetings

We combined all three campuses in Lancaster to have one meeting via video chat. As you would expect, we saw a decrease in number. But close to 50 students still joined us every week for a time of worship, hearing God’s Word taught, and meeting in small groups afterwards.

New Life in Christ

An Elizabethtown College student shared with one of our leaders that she gave her life to Christ this semester. She had not been able to attend our large group meetings on campus because of a schedule conflict, but she was able to come to our online meetings during quarantine. She told the upperclassman who was discipling her that she changed her mind about Jesus and is now convinced of his love for her, despite the difficult experiences she has faced in her life. 

Women’s Conference Live
DiscipleMakers still held our annual Women’s Conference–this time it was virtual. Over 290 women tuned in, which is the most we have ever had in attendance!

Small Group Bible Studies

Small group Bible studies continued every week with all three of our schools. Some were led by faithful students still prioritizing community and outreach; others were led by staff to continue training students in Bible study and disciple-making.

Delighting in the Psalms Podcast
For the month of April, the DM Lancaster team hosted a podcast to track through the Psalms together. These 15-20 minute conversations were brief reflections and responses in order to help our students delight in the Word on their own. You can listen to them here on Spotify.

Hope grows faith, builds community, and nurtures restoration. 
The hope of the Gospel compels us to reach beyond ourselves and guides us on our journey of faith together in harmony and charity. 

Our enduring growth as a body is dependent upon each of us embracing our assured future and sharing it with those around us.
