            It’s time once again to celebrate as a family of faith. 

Our annual picnic and baptism at the bay is an event that we look forward to every year. 

Once again, this year we will baptize new believers in the bay and celebrate their new life in Jesus Christ. 

After lunch our members will have an opportunity to enjoy good fellowship as well as taking part in recreational activities. 

Our children can enjoy a time with their friends in the children’s play area next to the pavilion.

  Please mark this on your calendar and invite neighbors and friends to join you both for worship and the picnic.

            The menu includes hamburgers and hot dogs with drinks and all the trimmings. The cost is $5.00 for adults / $3.00 for children age 10 and under. The park entrance fee has been paid.  Please pay in advance by either giving your reservation form and money to Cami Simmons in the finance office, or by placing it in the offering plate. Checks need to be made payable to MGBC.  (Write PICNIC on the memo line.) Thanks!


The October Caregiver Support Group meeting will be Thursday, October 27th at 9:00. Our guest speaker will be our own Natalie James.  She will be speaking on the subject of long term care and how to prepare for the possibilities of having to go into a long term care facility.  Preparing ahead of time for the possibility is very important.  Everyone needs a plan!
