At MGBC we love families and we strive to provide special events to create memories and experiences for your family. Some of the events held throughout the year include:
Kids have an opportunity to make a wooden car using a kit and race in a traditional Pinewood Derby race. Teens and Adults can compete in the "open" race with lots of freedom to build and design your own car.
FX or Family Experiences are held twice per year on Wednesday evenings. A light meal is served at 6pm followed by a family activity. Some past activities included a scavenger hunt through the church, Christmas, movie night, and a progressive meal. On FX nights, regular Wednesday night programming is suspended and all age groups participate as a family.
Light Up The Night
This outreach event is held on the Martinsburg Trick-or-Treat night. Families or small group set up at local homes and distribute food, candy, and play games with neighborhood folks as they are out trick-or-treating.
Father/Daughter and Mother/Son Date Nights
Rotating years, these events are special nights for parents to "date" their child of the opposite gender. Father/Daughter night is a dress up semi-formal dinner and program. Mother/Son night is an outdoor picnic with games.
Each summer, typically the last week of July, our church hosts Vacation Bible School in the evenings on Monday-Friday. We have a different theme each year and invite kids age 4 - 5th grade to participate in Bible lessons, crafts, games, snacks, and missions time. Middle school students participate in Extreme VBS (VBX) and play group games, have Bible time, and enjoy hanging out together. Our VBS Program, "Kickin' It Old School" will be July 22nd-26th.
Kids age 4 through 5th grade are invited to participate in a musical production twice a year (Dec and April). Practices are held from 6-7pm on Wednesday nights.
