MARBC Day of Prayer scheduled for Sunday, October 29

The Eleventh Annual MARBC Day of Prayer is scheduled for Sunday, October 29.  The Day of Prayer is held just prior to the MARBC Conference so that there can be a special prayer focus on behalf of the conference. It is also held during a time when churches give thanks to God for their pastors during Pastor Appreciation Month.

You are encouraged to join sister churches in our state for a day focusing upon united prayer for one another and our partnering ministries.

We suggest that your church designate time during the morning and/or evening services to pray for the churches, pastors, camps, missionaries, and ministries of the MARBC. Pray also for sister churches in your area.

Some churches choose to receive a special love offering on behalf of the MARBC. The MARBC ministry office and Executive Director are supported by the love gifts from churches in the fellowship. Your special offering would be greatly appreciated as the state association enters a new budget year and continues to improve its ministry income base.

Day of Prayer resources, including bulletin inserts, prayer related articles, and prayer requests, are available to download from this website.

Remembering George Dwelley, Pastor of Cornerstone Fellowship Baptist Church in Shingleton

George Dwelley. George Dwelley (69), pastor of Cornerstone Fellowship Baptist Church in Shingleton (U.P.), entered the presence of his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, August 9. He had recently been diagnosed with liver cancer.

Following a career in criminal justice, including time as a Corrections Officer for the State of Michigan, George retired and became the pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in 2009. He also served as the morning host of a local radio program, “George in the Morning,” since 2010 and used this platform to connect with the community and share the Gospel.

Please join us in prayer on behalf of George’s wife of 49 years, Sandy, his three children, eight grandchildren, and the Cornerstone Fellowship Baptist Church family.
