  • REMEMBER:   Our time together will start at 10:25 a.m. in order to give us the opportunity to hear about the missions and ministries that are active and the events that are being planned at MGBC.  Our hope is that by 10:30 a.m. we will be prepared for the purpose for which we have gathered; and that is of course to worship God.                                                                                                                                           
  • WEDNESDAY EVENING PROGRAMS:   Join us for all of our Wednesday activities.  Please join us for supper at 5:15 p.m.  The menu for this week is Hamburger Steak, Tater Tots, Slaw & Dessert.  All adults are asked to bring their bibles.  We will be discussing fasting.
  • MISSION OPPORTUNITY:  During December, we have the opportunity to support missionaries through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering which supports Southern Baptist Missionaries serving on the International Field.  For those who prefer to support the mission work of Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, you can donate to the Offering for Global Missions.  Special envelopes are available for both offerings.  Please prayerfully consider making a donation to support the missionaries sharing the Gospel around the world.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   NEEDY FAMILIES CHRISTMAS:  We are taking requests for help with Christmas.  Requests can be made by families needing help by contacting the church office by December 1st.  If you would like to donate toys or monies, please contact Attalissa.
