MBS in the Carroll County Times

| May 8, 2015

ph-ph-h-ph-cc-bibles-collected-jpg-20150430MBS Bible Sundays are becoming more and more popular. MBS offers them as an opportunity to create partnerships with churches.  The most recent partnership developed with North Carroll Cooperative Parish, Women In Mission at St. John’s United Methodist Church in Carroll County, MD.

Taking the initiative, Nancy Connor of the Women in Mission of St. John’s United Methodist Church called to ask our Executive Director, Dave Moyer to come and speak about our activities and future plans.

Nancy had received our email blast announcement about the Used Bibles for Kenya project and wanted to have the area churches participate.  To surprise Dave, she had put out a call to action that yielded 12 boxes full of these used biblical treasures.  For the people in Kenya these Bibles, biblical materials and study books are scarce or too expensive.

Because of Nancy’s call to action, the excitement spread through the community and resulted in an articles in Carroll County Times and in the Northern News. To read the article in the Carroll County Times, please go to:

About the Author ()

For over 200 years, the mission of the Maryland Bible Society (MBS) has been to see that every individual has an opportunity to own a Bible regardless of their native language or financial situation. Here in Maryland this mission has been mostly fulfilled. We now are turning our emphasis to encouraging and helping people read, understand and live out the truths and principles God has given us through His Holy Scriptures. As a non-denominational ministry, MBS is uniquely positioned to offer God’s Word without note or comment to Christians from all denominational backgrounds. This position allows us to work with all local Christian churches, serving and assisting them as they follow God’s lead. MBS has and will continue to establish and build partnerships that promote the distribution of the Bible, supply related sources and provide educational opportunities. Our vision is to ignite fresh passion for God’s Word to be lived out in the daily lives of people in Maryland and the world beyond. God’s Word contains truths that speak to all of the important areas of our lives: family, marriage, work, friendships, finances and parenting. It serves as the ‘road map’ for the often-overwhelming experience of life. It is a comfort, an encouragement, a teacher. It is convicting, edifying and inspiring. The Bible reveals our purpose in life. The Creator of the Universe has given us His Word to guide and direct us as we serve Him and live in the world.

As we embark on this renewed vision, our desire is to impact lives. As God leads us on this great adventure, we invite you to partner with us. Lives will be transformed as the Holy Spirit works through the Scriptures, resources and opportunities provided by MBS. Join us as we ignite fresh passion for God’s Word among individuals, ministries, local Churches, and businesses.
