Summer Edition of Starting Zone

It’s not too late to sign up for our summer edition of the Starting Zone Gospel Presentation!

Starting Zone equips parents to be the primary spiritual leader at home, first in guiding their child to make a personal decision to start a relationship with Jesus Christ and second, in guiding them to express their faith publicly through baptism when they are mature enough to understand and articulate what the act symbolizes. No matter where your child is spiritually, we’ll give you a starting point.

We typically start new rounds of Starting Zone every spring and fall but by request, we’ve added a summer Gospel Presentation on Saturday, June 14 at 5:15 pm in Room 1208. Elementary-aged children and their parents attend together to participate in a 45-minute presentation of John 3:16 that is interactive, engaging, and fun for you and your child. Following the class parents will receive resources to fuel their child’s faith all summer and have an option to return in the fall to take steps towards baptism.

We recommend that children be 7 years old & up but you can bring your children whenever you feel they’re ready and you can repeat the class as many times as you like to help solidify your child’s growing faith. This class is required for any child who wants to be baptized at MBC. For more info or to register go to
