Bereavement Ministry
One of the areas of ministry at MSBC is serving our Church Members and their families when they lose loved ones. We prepare food and serve a meal at the church or in their home. Many of you work or live outside of Rocky Top and cannot participate by preparing food. If you have not been asked and are willing to help prepare food for this ministry, please contact Glenna Pebley or Joan Martin. If you cannot participate in food participation, please consider giving a financial gift, on a regular basis, to the Bereaved Ministry account to help. Your help with this ministry will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!! Glenna & Joan

Food Pantry Ministry

Our youth meet every Wednesday night. Our time together begins with a meal at 6:00 p.m., and at 6:30, the youth are divided into groups. Come be a part of this fun-filled time as we learn how to stand for Christ in a world filled with tough challenges.
