Connecting with others | As a community living in hope our goal is to be more inclusive, openly welcoming people from any place and walk of life, uniting us in a pursuit of becoming a more balanced, inter-generational, family-centered body. To this end, MBC encourages meeting in small groups to support each other and grow together in faith.
Participate in a Small Group
Groups have three specific purposes: fellowship, scripture, and prayer bringing about both individual spiritual growth and authentic relationship.
Locations: Below are the current small groups. We invite you to plug into one of them. Contact the group leader to verify the start date, time and locations:

New Spiritual Formation Small Group – led by Pastor Dave and Juli Hentschel
This 8-week study will be utilizing the Spiritual Formation Workbook, a resource of Renovare (from the latin meaning “renew”). Together, we will explore the six major dimensions of the spiritual life found in the life of Christ and Christian tradition: The Contemplative Tradition – The Holiness Tradition – The Charismatic Tradition – The Social Justice Tradition – The Evangelical Tradition – and The Incarnational Tradition.
Successfully used by thousands of Spiritual Formation Group participants, A Spiritual Formation Workbook has been completely revised to correlate with Richard J. Foster’s “Streams of Living Water.” Its new and updated exercises and teachings offer fresh perspectives on Christian faith and practice.
The price for the book is $12.00. Because of restrictions, we will meet via Zoom as of right now.
Meets bi-monthly on Sundays at 7pm.
Begins: September 20, 2020
Please contact Pastor Dave (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
This group is specifically designed for people who have little or no background in the Bible, but would like to take a look and see for themselves what it says. The Investigators study will be held in a relaxed, welcoming environment, and is an excellent opportunity for you to invite that questioning friend who is seeking to learn more. We will meet every other week for 7 weeks, each week looking at 7 different encounters people had with Jesus. Contact Paul Wilford or Kathy Wilford for meeting location and more details.
