MBC Weekly Newsletter
December 1, 2020
Until we are back in the Yellow Level of the New Brunswick COVID-19 Recovery Plan we will continue having church ONLINE ONLY. We encourage you to watch the service from home unless you do not have access to our online service. If you do not have access, please feel free to join us in-person at 10 AM.

We can not wait to be all together again. We miss you. Stay tuned!

Click on the following two links for access to our Online Service.

We are once again asking our church family to help us strengthen our online ministry by helping us update our sound and media equipment. Our special Thanksgiving Offering enabled us to purchase the first phase of upgrades with the purchase of broadcast software and some lighting equipment needed to enhance our online ministry. We are now ready to begin the second phase of purchasing and installing new overhead lighting and two digital remote-controlled cameras.

Would you prayerfully consider making a financial donation this Christmas? Your gift, no matter how small or large it may be, will greatly help us meet our goal of $10, 000.  Your donation can be given any time before the end of December. Please designate your donation as “My Christmas Offering” online or by envelope.  Thank you for your generous and sacrificial gift. 

If you have not received a Christmas Letter in your email inbox, they are available for pick up in the church lobby or you can find it on our church website and Facebook page.
Would you be willing to shovel out entrances and walkways at the church this winter for one week a month? Please speak to Betty MacWiilliam at 470-8611. Your help would be appreciated.
The Fredericton Emergency Shelters are also in need of new mittens, hats, hand warmers and scarves to keep residence and individuals warm this winter. A donation box for mittens, hats, handwarmers has been placed in the church lobby. Thank you for loving our city in this way.
The Mitten Tree will soon be up in the church foyer to decorate with your donations of new mittens, hats and scarves. These will be donated to the Gibson Neill Elementary School to keep the children warm this this winter. Any questions contact Andrea at 451-5116.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and to give our volunteers a break our Christmas Eve Service and our December 27th service will be online only for this year.

We encourage you to gather with your family bubble to attend these two services online. Begin to think about who you could invite to your home to take part in this online experience.

Christmas Eve will be posted online at 4 PM & 6 PM via Facebook & YouTube. The service on the 27th will be available online at 10 AM. The service will be available to watch anytime after that.

Here are the links to Facebook and YouTube.
Sunday Mornings @ 10 AM
Ages: Infants - Grade 5
Leadership Development: Grades 6 & up.

Postponed until we are back in the Yellow Level.
Attention MBC Youth Families: Due to increasing COVID concerns and to help be a part of slowing the spread - we have made the difficult decision to cancel any remaining youth gatherings until the New Year. This is disappointing to us all here at MBC, but we want to act responsibly on behalf of the church community and our Fredericton community.

We have had such a wonderful FALL start and though we will miss the Christmas outing, we hope to make this event up in the Winter!

Please don’t hesitate to contact Pastor Joel (Joel.mbcpastor@gmail.com) with any needs, cares, or concerns you may have. We are here to serve your whole family in this community!

God Bless you all this Christmas Season!

Are you interested in participating in a Missional Community Group? MCs are the building block of the church where we experience a shared meal, authentic community, practice holistic gospel centred disciple making and engage in a mission in our region. 

We have two missional communities: Please let us know what group you would like to be a part of. Consider this your personal invitation!!

  1. Sunday evenings @ 6 PM - Jim and Sheila Dillon (459-4382) - at the church. (We have finished until after Christmas. See you in January)
  2. Tuesday evenings @ 6 PM - Derek and Sheila Jones (292-1718) - 346 Neill Street. (We have finished until after Christmas. See you in January)

Making disciples is not a spiritual gift reserved for a few Christian elite. It is the spiritual mandate Jesus gave to all His followers, and it was never intended to be complicated. Whether you are an introverted wall flower or an over the top people person, our weekly study "Discipleship Uncomplicated" delivers exactly what you need to start influencing people for Jesus.
Tuesday Ladies Morning Out: It is with a sad heart that with the increased cases of COVID-19 in NB, a decision has been made that Ladies Morning Out will not meet together on Tuesday mornings at the church. Our Tuesday morning time will once again be virtual at 9:30 for those interested in staying connected to share your prayer requests and blessings. Grab a cup of tea or coffee and join us on Video Chat. Any questions contact Andrea at 451-9600.
Here is a list of non-perishable grocery items needed for the month of December at the "Sharing Hands Food and Clothing Bank", located at The Drive Baptist Church. Donations can be dropped off at MBC. Thank you for loving our community in this way.

Groceries: pancake mix & syrup, miracle whip, mayonnaise, canned milk, canned salmon, canned pasta (zoodles, alpha-getti, spaghetti, etc.), bottled spaghetti sauce, canned green & yellow beans, peas, mixed vegetables, bottles of apple juice & school snack sized canned fruit and mixed gel fruit jello packs.
