GIVING TO MISSIONS:
There is an advocate assigned to the above missions and ministries. For more information on the ministry, please reach out to the advocate or click on the ministry's link. The advocate is consulted by the Trustees Board as to any increase for giving (as stated in bylaws). The trustees then budget money with membership approval (voted on at the Annual Budget meeting) for specific ministries that the church body desires to support. Individuals who designate gifts in their offering to one of these ministries helps the church in meeting this commitment. (Designated money exceeding the budgeted amount will also go to that ministry.)

As a regular attender of MBC, you may submit a mission or ministry for congregational support through an application process. For more details contact church office.
