MBC Weekly Newsletter
March 24, 2021
Join us this Sunday IN-PERSON @ 10:00

Pre-registration is not required. We have a seat saved for you!

BIG+ is our new exciting kid's ministry for Infants - Grade 8. It all begins in the Multi-Media Room and Nursery at 10 AM sharp. Your kids will have a blast.
For the past three years, Kim Adair-MacPherson has faithfully served as our church treasurer. We have indeed been blessed and have benefited greatly in having someone with Kim’s qualifications serve in this significant role at MBC. As Kim prepares for her move to Nova Scotia and her new role as Auditor General for that province, we wish her every success. Thank-you, Kim. Well done!

In spite of Kim’s departure, the work of managing church finances continues, and the Leadership and Administration Team has asked Bev Dow to fulfill the duties of Treasurer on an interim basis effective immediately and until a new Treasurer can be appointed. Our current Constitution and By-Laws empower the Board of Management (now Leadership and Administration Team) to approve signing authorities for the church.
Easter Offering

This month marks one full year of coming into your homes by way of online sources such as Facebook Live and YouTube. Over this past year we have expanded our online ministry from recorded services to real time livestream. We have also extended our reach by broadcasting on JoyFm each week at 9 AM. Each week several hundred people beyond our church walls are reached through online ministry.

Through your faithful giving we have purchased a powerful iMac computer, live-streaming software and a new lighting system. But now we need to upgrade our audio and video equipment by purchasing a new digital sound board and the first of several new PTZ remote control cameras. We are only able to purchase these extra-budget upgrades as funds are given through special offerings. So it is to these designated purposes that we are committing the Easter offering this year. The sound board will cost approximately $6,000 installed and one camera will cost approximately $4,000 installed. It is our hope that God will provide one or more donors who will be able to give toward the entire purchase of one of these this Easter season. Please designate “Easter Offering” in your online giving or on your envelope. May God bless you for your extravagant gift.
We will be celebrating Communion together In-Person on Sunday, March 28th. Please plan to join us. Please have bread and juice ready if you plan to join us online.
We are having a Baptism on Easter Sunday. If you are interested in getting baptized please speak to Pastor Jason no later than March 28th.
