|30 Hour Famine (Junior High)
February 23 - 24 | First MB
Every year our junior high students go without food for 30 hours to see what it feels like for the millions of people around the world who regularly face hunger. You have the opportunity to sponsor our students, and all the funds go directly to hunger relief through World Vision. Our church family has a history of extreme generosity with this campaign, and we hope this year will be the same! Keep an eye out for junior highers on Sunday mornings if you'd like to sponsor them, or learn more here.
|Work as Worship Retreat
February 23 | 7:30 a.m. | First MB Worship Center
Most adults in our church family spend the majority of their week in the workplace. Many Christians are unsure how to connect their faith to their work. At this one-day conference, we'll learn to see our day-to-day as an act of worship to God. Speakers include Matt Chandler, Patrick Lencioni, Phil Vischer, and more. Learn more and sign up here!
