Volunteer Opportunities
   
    homeless shelter
Founded in the 1984, in cooperation with CAMBA, MABC runs a shelter for the homeless on Friday and Saturday nights during the months of September through June. 

Our volunteers (a minimum of two per evening) arrive at 7:30 pm and sleep in the Shelter (separate, secured sleeping quarters and security provided). The Overnight Host prepares coffee in the morning and sees the Guests off at 6:15 am. You may volunteer for the Shelter by contacting Melvin Bell (862)202-1631 or by email.

Bible Study

Interested in a lively, time and thought provoking way to start your Sunday?  Join us at 10:00 a.m. to "get your Baptist on" before services.

We gather each Sunday for an insightful, often lively and educational conversation around what it means to be a Baptist in 2012. The first half of this year we will embark on an in depth examination of the Bible - its origins, how it's been preserved, reinterpreted, and the place it holds in our lives. 


We meet on the fourth floor of the Parish House in the International Room of Lorimer Hall.  
All ages are welcome.
