MONTHLY UPDATE | September 2020
Welcome to September!

As many of you have been able to return to school and other activities in recent weeks, we're excited to share that in September MBBC Student Ministry is taking a BIG step back toward our normal our normal school year rhythms.

As things currently are trending, our responsible, gradual, and flexible reopening plan will allow us to return to on campus, in-person Sunday Morning Bible Study and Student Growth Groups after Labor Day!

As you're used to by now, when we're together we'll always do two things to keep one another safe:

1. Six feet of separation between anyone from
different households is required at all times.

2. Wearing a mask is required at all times.

As we get ready to jump back into our weekly programs, here's our 2020 Fall Ministry Guide which includes the full Fall schedule and lots more helpful info:
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

We're looking forward to a great Fall together!

Blessings!

We are very excited to launch The Brook for the Fall with a new schedule.

Each month we'll have a Worship Night, Fellowship Night, and Mission Night.

THE BROOK IS NOW 6-7 PM!

Remember to bring a mask and chair each week!
Here is this month's schedule:

Worship Night at The Brook
September 13

Worship Night is The Brook as you know & love it amped up just a little more.
We have a great night planned to kick off The Brook for the Fall.
Join us for an evening of games, worship, and Bible study.
We'll be digging into a BIG question for these days:
What do we do while we're waiting for the world to get back to normal?

Fellowship Night at The Brook
September 20

Fellowship Night is all about the fun of being together.
This month's Fellowship Night is GAME NIGHT!
We've got a variety of games up our sleeves - all played at a distance, of course. It is going to be a blast! Don't miss it.

Mission Night at The Brook

Mission Night is about serving others in Jesus' name.
Our Student Ministry Mission Council will be helping us find the best option to be on mission each month. If you'd like to join that group, let Ben Winder know (ben@mbbc.org | 205.604.6803).

A RESOURCE FOR YOUR FAMILY
Each month we try to connect you with a resource that might be helpful for your family as you navigate life and faith.
This month a reminder of some of the resources we're creating at MBBC:
Home Church SMBS
Since March we've been offering a Home Church SMBS video each week for adults & students. We're about to wrap up our study of the Sermon on the Mount and September 13 begins a new series on Psalms.
If you've missed any a full back catalogue is available, too.
Project 119 - Bible Reading Plan

The single most important thing one can do to grow their faith and relationship with Jesus is to spend consistent time with God in scripture and prayer.
Our Project 119 Bible Reading Plan is designed to help your family do just that.
Bonus: we also follow the Project 119 for our Growth Groups and our ...
Instagram Daily Devos

We invite you to start each weekday with us on Insta as we share a quick devotional thought connected to that day's Project 119 reading.
We also post them on Facebook, if you're too old cool for the 'Gram.
Your MBBC Student Ministry staff is always here as a resource to help you navigate technology or anything else that comes up along the journey of raising your kids to be all God is calling them to become!

Let us know how we can help!
