This year the theme is One Voice United in Prayer!” with the key verse “So that with one mind and one voice you may glorifythe God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”- Romans 15:6. This is always a special time as we gather with those of our community to pray for God’s blessing!

    Looking ahead- We will be making a new church photo directory in honor of the 60th Anniversary of MABC!  The photographer will be here on Friday, June 27 and Saturday, June 28th.  You will receive an 8x 10 photograph and full color directory at no charge!  There will be more information in the days ahead.

    We have two monthly magazines that can be borrowed pertaining to college-aged young adults and teenagers.  You can pick up COLLEGIATE magazine for those who are college-aged or LIVING WITH TEENAGERS for parents of teens.  Both magazines are located in the Gospel tract display at the gym entrance.  We are asking that the magazines be borrowed for one week and then returned to the display.  Both magazines focus on spiritual growth and current issues facing our young people in today’s world.
