MSBC Women's Ministry

Women of MSBC join the Women’s Ministry for our next Women’s Night Out Monday February 2nd at 6:30 pm. The theme for the evening is, “It’s Time to Pray”.  Prayer is the pipeline to God’s power. Let’s experience breakthrough together on our knees.

As a sign of unity and holiness please wear a white shirt and white socks. “If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will DO IT for YOU. For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.” ~ Matthew 18:19-20.

 It’s Breakthrough Season.  It’s Time to Pray and watch God work!!!
