MONTHLY UPDATE | June 2021
Summer is here!

One of the things we're most excited about this summer is getting back in the habit of being together in Christian community. We have some fun events and activities planned to help us do that, but really we would also just love to hang out whenever you're in town, so hit us up!

We're also excited to welcome in our new rising 7th Graders to join us for all our non-overnight events and activities this summer (basically everything but Beach Retreat) - it is always a joy to expand our family!

Speaking of expanding our family, let us introduce our Summer Interns:
Nathan King

Nathan is continuing as an intern with us this summer, serving with the Student Ministry and Contemporary Worship Ministry.
Nathan is a rising Junior at Samford University.
Alexa Rollow

We're so excited to welcome Alexa home for the summer -
she's one of our own; she grew up at MBBC and graduated from MBHS.
She's a rising Junior at Baylor University (Sic 'Em Bears!).



We're here for you this summer, so, for real, hit us up, we'd love to hang!

Alexa - 205.568.7608
Ben - 205.603.6803
Nathan - 407.951.1389
Tim - 205.789.3976

It is going to be an almost-normal but definitely awesome summer!

In Christ,
Ben
