Get Direction >

Think casual. Modern-style worship to learn, serve and get connected.

We want you to feel at home, so come in something comfortable with your coffee in hand!

The Commons is our “front door” at Maranatha. Park your car in the lot at the corner of 6th Street & 4th Avenue and enter beneath the “Welcome to Maranatha” double doors. We’ll point you the right direction from there!

Our music ministry at MBC is a vibrant contemporary worship style. We incorporate both new and traditional worship songs into our corporate worship each Sunday. Our vision for worship is to glorify the name of the Lord each week through music that has depth and meaning consistent with the teaching of Scripture.

After worship, Pastor Aaron will continue by sharing God's Word.  His sermons are relational, to the point, and help explain what it means to live for Jesus Christ in everyday life.

Nursery is available for kids newborn through 4 years and children's church for 5 year-olds through 2nd graders.  Sermon notes are offered to 3rd through 6th graders and upon multiple successful completions prizes are awarded!

Long-time Christian, new believer or curious seeker, we'd love to have you join us!

what we're learning


During our worship service, children ages 5 through 2nd grade are dismissed during the sermon and for “Berry Blast Theme Park” where they’ll learn about the fruit of the Spirit.

3 Year Olds - 6th Grade

We are working our way through "The Gospel Project" which points kids to the Gospel of Jesus Christ through looking at the Bible chronologically.

3-4 Year Olds

They meet in the Annex which is connected to the Sanctuary.  They watch a short Bible lesson video, talk about the teaching of the day, and engage in activities that further emphasize the day's teaching point.

K-6th Grade 

They gather in the Kid's Court area of the Commons. 

Kindergarten - 4th grade begin as a large group and watch the Bible story video of the morning, work on Scripture memory and pray together. After their large group time,
they meet in smaller groups for Bible application and activities. 

5th-6th grade meet together for in depth and age appropriate teaching

that brings the Bible to life.

The Book of Revelation

led by Gerry Barker

Commons—Prayer Room 

"The book of Revelation is the scariest book of the Bible, yet it is also one of the most comforting,
reassuring and exhilarating books in the Bible.  Revelation gathers all the threads of theme and historic
events contained in the rest of the Bible, weaving them into a seamless whole.  The entire scope of human history - and of eternity itself - comes into brilliant focus in the book of Revelation.  This book is not just a musty piece of parchment from a bygone is vibrant, alive, and profoundly applicable to the times
in which you and I live."




The Gospel of John

led by Dale Krohse

Commons-Kingston Room

Where do you turn when the world around you grows dark? 
In this study of the Gospel of John, you will be encouraged to turn to Christ by remembering the two
purposes for the beloved disciple's book - that we would believe in Jesus and find life in His name. 
Despite what our culture may argue, there is only one hope that is truly trustworthy and that
is our savior, Jesus Christ.
