Save the Date for Summer Adventure 2021
This summer, we’re taking kids on an island adventure where we’ll learn that Jesus rescues. What better time for kids – and adults!- to be reminded that when we’re lonely, worried, struggling…we need Jesus!
This year, we’re prayerfully hoping and planning to provide in-person and online options for kids to participate, so stay tuned for more details to come.
It’s never too early to let us know you’d like to be part of the team to make this happen! Contact Rachel (email@example.com) if you’re interested.
Online registration is now open!
Welcome to Wilderness Escape, our FREE online version of Summer Adventure!
We will be hosting a Zoom session every day for all ages, preschoolers to kids entering 6th graders, where we’ll meet Moses, sing, do crafts, see object lessons and more.
Wilderness Wanderer Kits are LIMITED, so sign up ASAP!
This will include some craft supplies, a Bible verse bookmark, a bandanna, a devotional, and more!
Pick up will be Friday, July 10 at MBC, more info to come. Kids can still participate without a kit. Note: preschoolers will need help with crafts, recommended for ages 3+ due to small pieces.
Idea: Share your adventure experience with a buddy.
Buddy up with another family to watch and participate together! (as government restrictions allow)
Registration closes Thursday, July 9.
Again, Wilderness Wanderer kits are LIMITED so sign up ASAP.
Sign up SOON because we have a Wilderness Wanderer Kit for you to pick up for your kids, but supplies are LIMITED.
Since we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pushing back registration until we have more information. Ideally, we would love to have an in-person Summer Adventure program, but we need to await the government’s decisions and recommendations for large gatherings as the summer months approach. At the very least, we would provide a virtual, online experience for the kids.
Please check back here for updated registration information in mid-May (registration date is still subject to change).
2020 Program Fees:
$25 for first 2 children. $5 each additional child.
T-shirts ($5) and CD’s ($5) are available for purchase at the start of Summer Adventure.
Registration is incomplete until payment has been submitted.
Scholarships are available upon request.

For more than 25 years, OCC has been collecting shoeboxes filled with gifts and delivering them to children in need around the world. With each box, kids experience God’s love in a tangible way and hear the gospel.
Our goal as a church is to collect 300 boxes! Would you consider helping us in one of the following ways?
1. Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Shoeboxes
Boxes are available at our Sunday morning in-person services. Help yourself to one or more, fill them up, and drop off at MBC no later than Sunday, November 15. Visit the OCC website for gift ideas and packing instructions.
You may also donate $9 per box online*. Be sure to check off Follow Your Box to track it to its recipient(s). If you prefer, you may include one check inside one of your boxes to cover each of the boxes you donate. *The $9 per gift is a suggested donation. This donation is critical for Operation Christmas Child to collect, process, and ship shoebox gifts to more than 100 countries. It also provides for ministry materials.
2. MBC Packing Party
No time to DIY but still want to help? No problem! We are organizing a packing party to fill shoeboxes with specific items donated by the congregation. These shoeboxes are separate from the DIYer’s boxes.
Please review the list of items that we are requesting donations for and sign up to let us know what you can bring. Donation drop-off boxes for these items will be available on Sunday mornings.
Sundays at 11:15am
Kids in preK to 6th grade are encouraged to join us via Zoom on Sundays at 11:15am. This is a fun time for ALL ages to see each other, do a fun activity, and hear a short lesson.
Contact Ms. Rachel for the Zoom connection information.
We are excited to participate 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.
How it works…
Collect boxes of food and connect with immediate neighbors who need a hand. Locally prepared boxes (List of Food Items) of groceries will be distributed first to:
Immediate neighbors in need.
Feeding Hands for local distribution (Click for Locations).
Your local community food pantry for those who are located outside the Central NJ area.
Working together, our hands will feed deep needs in our communities for connection that last well beyond the duration of this pandemic. Visit the Feeding Hands website to learn more.
A Beautiful Mess
by Dave Hentschel & Bob Erbig
Now available on Kindle and in paperback, A Beautiful Mess: Coming from a dysfunctional family doesn’t destine you for a dysfunctional life. All proceeds from the purchase of this book go to MBC.
Family. This group of people has so much power over us. Our familial experiences forever shape our lives. Truth be told, family can be a source of life giving joy. Family can also be a source of palpable pain that leaves us angry, confused and unable to move on. And yet… when we search the pages of the Scriptures… we see that families are building blocks of society. In fact, God brought about redemption through a family. In the midst of pain and brokenness, God promises healing through adoption into a new family with him as our heavenly father.
In this book, we journey through the biblical account of Genesis addressing challenges facing every one of our families. These challenges make us who we are. But even in the mess of family dysfunction, God can make something beautiful … through the power of the Gospel!
