Community Presence

" You are the Light of the world, A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16
 
Every community has needs: homelessness, family difficulties and educational deficiencies just to name a few. If you stop for a moment and think about the needs in this community, you might be overwhelmed. So, how do you bring renewal to a community?
 
It all goes back to Jesus. As a church, MBC affirms the Bible's teaching that goodness, truth, love and grace come into communities through God's Truth in the local church. MBC serves Jesus in our community through prayerful, intentional, regular presence - telling God's truth in a way others can hear and see.
PRAYERFUL
We can't meet every need. We can't solve every problem. However, we can meet some needs and help bring solutions to some problems in our community. We pray for our community; for God to give us wisdom and resources to meet needs. When we see needs and resources come together, we know that God is moving through MBC to make a difference through prayerful, humble presence.
INTENTIONAL
As we see needs and resources come together, our desire is to be intentional in meeting needs and bringing solutions to problems in our community. MBC is strategic in developing local and global partnerships to do the most good. This strategic emphasis is being in our community with intentional presence.
REGULAR
Making a difference doesn't happen in a single moment. To really make a difference in a community, presence must be regular. As we seek to bring renewal into our community through God's goodness and grace, we encourage each member and guest of MBC toward regular presence.
