21

As we kick off 2021, our church family is starting the new year with a renewed focus on prayer and fasting. Pastor Brent will be leading us through a new teaching series in January that looks at what the Bible has to say about prayer and fasting, and we're providing several opportunities for you to dive into these special practices.

21 Daily
Throughout January, we're releasing a short new video each weekday with some thoughts to guide your prayers. These videos are short (3-5 minutes at the most) and are hosted by various First MBers. Use these videos to guide your time of prayer and fasting. These videos will be posted daily at 6:00 a.m. on our new Facebook Group and the First MB YouTube channel. If you prefer, you can also listen to these prompts on our podcast

Worship Nights
Every Tuesday evening in January, you're invited to an evening of worship and guided prayer. We'll meet live in the First MB Worship Center, or you can also watch the livestream on Facebook or YouTube. Childcare will be provided for kids 4 & under.
