We are blessed to have many college students attending our services and in order to help these students, we have an Adopt-a-College Student Ministry. Examples of things the student and their adopted family do include:
Come over for a home-cooked meal
Go to lunch after church
Offer a home to serve as a haven from busy school life - a place to study or just chat with you or a couple of their friends
Find out when their tests are and how to pray for them
Send notes or emails of encouragement
Provide a listening ear
Send care packages
Provide assistance in case of emergency
Please contact the church office or complete a form included in a worship service program if you are a student who would benefit from this program or you are a family who is willing to adopt a student.
Wes and Heather French are moving and leaving MFBC. They are pictured below with their oldest son, Connor while being recognized for their participation in many activities at MFBC. Our loss will be another church's gain when they get settled in at their new home.
Terry Davis, Minister of Music speaks and Tina Hood, Pianist and Vocalist, presented tokens of appreciation.
Dr. Jing Li, D.M.D, has practiced dentistry in Birmingham for seventeen years. He earned his medical degree from China. He came to the U.S in 1992. He earned his DMD degree from UAB dental school in 1998. He is a member of Shades Mountain Baptist Church and choir.
Dr. Li loves singing. He was awarded the Chinese “Southeast Karaoke Champion” in Atlanta. His voice was adopted by an IMAX theater in Beijing, China. He is called the “Singing Dentist” and was featured on Fox 6 News. His friends call him the “Chinese Elvis”.
Dr. Li was an atheist. His musical testimony is the moving story of how he became a Christian. Dr. Li is so grateful for God’s love and mercy. In 2007 Dr. Li experienced a medical miracle. He walked through the valley of shadow of death. He will use music to testify of God’s miraculous love.
