Wednesday Nights at 7 pm

We call Wednesdays at MRBC our midweek encouragement. It’s a time for us to take spiritual respite in the middle of the week to fellowship together, sing some songs of praise, pray over our many needs, and spend some time in God’s Word … all to find encouragement and refreshment from God.

In January – March of 2020, we’ll take up a study of Peter’s first letter to the churches. Peter was writing to people who were–by the mere fact of claiming Jesus as their salvation–putting their reputations, livelihoods, and lives on the line. And Peter makes it clear that to partake of the blessing of being a Christian requires that one partake of the the sufferings of our Christ (4:13).

The preaching in this series will take place on Wednesday evenings, when we meet at 7 pm. Whether you join us for all or some of it, we’d love to have you come along as we learn to be Partakers of His Suffering.
