REAL LIFE groups are our tool of connection and discipleship here at MBC. Real Life Groups are groups of 3-15 adults/teens that come together weekly or every other week with the similar goal in mind of building deeper connections with God and others, while in an informal setting and the comfort of local homes.  

-please check out groups below...
