We take the Lord's work to the community, both near and far. We participate in several mission projects that range from once a year to ongoing. Some of them are "home grown", such as the "Pick-An-Angel" during the Advent Season. Worldwide missions include Operation Christmas Child "Shoe Box" and the "Far Reaching Ministries" supporting Missionaries in Nairobi, Kenya.
If you enjoy singing, meet with the MPBC Choir director or choir president and get "fitted" to a vocal range and choir robe. Sacred music is very important to the worship experience and your gift might be just what is needed to up-lift and inspire the spirituality of our members and visitors. Our MPBC Choir rehearse on Friday of each week. Come make a joyful noise to the Lord.
ADULT USHER Ministry
Ushers, are the ones who stand at the door, greet members and visitors, distribute pamphlets and assist people in seating; play a key role in the worship experience. The way ushers greet people can and will determine how the person will receive the sermon. The usher is in a sense an ambassador for God and the role you play is very important to providing a spiritual worship experience for our members and visitors.
