A Word About Maranatha Bible Church

Kathy and I have attended MBC since we moved to Comstock Park in 1994. When we came that first Sunday, there was no doubt that we would stay. This body of believers is family. I can’t think of another place I’d rather be on Sunday’s. I have grown in my walk with the Lord here. I enjoy being involved in ministry with fellow believers of like heart and purpose.
