[12/14/13]   Please come and join MSMBC on Sunday, December 15, 2013 for our Youth and Young People Annual Christmas Celebration at 9:00am. If you have been to any of our Youth Annual Days in the past, you know that we have fun and enjoy ourselves in the name of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our Youth and Young People enjoy serving God!!! So please come and join us in celebrating with them. Thanks you in advance....from MSMBC!!

[10/19/13]   MSMBC will be celebrating its Youth and Young People Annual Day on Sunday, October 20,2013 at 9:00am . Please feel free to join us in this joyous occasion. Our young people know how to praise God and they want the world to know it!!!

[10/11/13]   The Fall Revival was great!!!!! Rev. Allen Ben was great as usual!!! If you were not there, you missed a treat. There was something that Rev. Ben said on last night that kind of made sense, if you really thought about it. And I'm paraphrasing: "You must experience the Lord's presence personally. We all know the story about God and how Jesus died for our sins, but do you know Him personally for yourself? Stop riding off of other people's blessings and prayers and heed the word of God for yourself so you can experience his sovereignty." Thank you Rev. Allen Ben, from MSMBC!!!!!!

[09/27/13]   Sunday, September 29, 2013 is MSMBC 5th Sunday Mission Service. Please feel free to come and join us as the ladies of Morning Star bring in the devotion, song service, and contribute to another day in the Lord. I promise, Pastor Norris Ben will give you a treat and leave you hungry for more!!!!!!!!

[09/27/13]   Our Wednesday Night Live! Bible Study Session is going great! Pastor Ben is talking to us about the whole armor of God, Ephesians 6:10-20.
*Before we put on the whole armor, be willing to stand and
withstand in order to overcome
*And be prayed up before, during and after you put on the
Next weeks lesson will be coming from James 4:7-10 and the question is: How to defeat the devil and how to come out of worldliness. Please read and be ready with your answers and questions.

[04/13/12]   GM Saints, Day 5: Fasting and Praying; Are you yet holding on? Jesus, while being a very public figure, was actually a very private person. You dont see Him praying in public nearly as much as you see Him praying in private. In fact our Savior was so committed to private prayer that He would often pray for hours on end. Pray and stay in God's Word, concentrate on your own pesonal prayer time and prayer place. On your 5th day of fasting you will feel antsy, so stay prayerful. HEALTH AND HEALING; Take time today and thank God that Jesus is your Healer. If there is sickness in your body or mind, or in the body or mind of a loved one, begin to speak forth health and healing in Jesus' Name. Begin to declare that, "BY HIS STRIPES I AM HEALED...WITH LONG LIFE YOU WILL SATISFY ME AND MY FAMILY, AND SHOW ME YOUR SALVATION" (Isaiah 53:5, Psalm91:16). Just begin to speak it out loud, because you reap what you speak. By your words and prayers, release health and healing over your body, your family, your church, your friends and anybody that need a healing. Do you believe that he will do it! "But to you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness shall arisewith healing in His wings" (Malachi 4:2) As always yours in Christ, Pastor N Ben.....

[04/12/12]   GM Saints, Day 4; Focus!! Intercecessors: You are a spiritual "gatekeeper" in your home, your family, your job, your city. Your intercessory prayers for these areas help maintain a wall of protection against demonic attacks. Interceding is intervening, or stepping in on behalf of another. Even people who would never speak to you in person have no defense against your prayers. Your prayers can go in the bars, your prayers can go in the crack-houses. Your prayers can go anywhere! On your 4th day, pray and stay in God's Word, drink lots of water,listen as you pray. You begin to settle into the fast, cravings should subside,if you were having headaches, they should subside. Paul said the weapon of our warfare are "mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds" (2 Corinthians 10:4) We are all most there, dont give-up, you have come this far, not to turn-around!! And pray in the
Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. (Ephesians 6:18) Remember, we need to stay FOCUS! Stay PRAYFUL! And listen to what God is saying to YOU! As always yours in Christ, Pastor N Ben...

[04/11/12]   GM Saints, Day 3; Getting Past Your Quiting Point: When u Hunger 4 God, he will fill u! Jesus went through cities where He could do no miracles-because there was no hunger. In this day God is saying I'm looking for somebody who wants something, I'm looking for somebody who will do more than show up for another church service,but they will hunger for that which I want to place unto them! On this 3rd day, you are passing a crucial hurdle on your way to your 7-day fast goal. So dont give up! Stay HUNGRY!!! Remember drink lots of water, fill up on the Word, pray for encourgement. This is usually the toughest day of the fast! Seek God for direction and guidance in your life. Paul said,"I was not disobedient to the Heavenly vision" (Acts 26:19). Remember the six(6) stages of a vision: I thought it- God gives you the vision, I caught it- you start to get excited about the vision, I bought it- consider the cost of the the price. I sought it-nobody can talk you out of it.I got it- you actually possess the dream and are glad you paid the price to get it. I taught it- pass it on to the next generation. Never settle for less than God's best for ur life! As God instructed Habakkuk: "Write the vision and make it plain on tablets...though it tarries, wait for it" (Habakkuk 2:2-3). So let's stay focus and most of all prayerful! And again remember the VISION!!! As always your's in Christ, Pastor N Ben...

[04/10/12]   GM Saints, Day 2: Hungering for living bread; On your 2nd day of fasting, remember, drink lots of H2o, spend time in God's Word. conserve ur energy,4 those that are outside,u must drink water!! Most of all PRAY! The 2nd and 3rd days r the most difficult! PHYSICAL & SPIRITUAL EFFECTS: Tongue begins to coat, hunger pangs increase, cravings r intense @ times. Your body starts burning fat 4 energy, a process called "ketosis" Remember we r malnourshed n the word of God, but well fed on the things of this world! We must diligently feed on God's Word. Sometimes the best thing u can do is starve the flesh and feed ur spirit through a fast. REMEBER YOUR PASTOR, all PASTORS need prayer. Sometimes the weight of ministry can get overwhelming that the joy, freshness and power of the calling can be forgotten. As with Eliijah, the spirit of Jezebel attempts to ensnare, and if that doesn't work it brings discourgement and defeat.(see 1 Kings 18-19). The attacks affect not only pastors, but often their familes as well. Read Hebrews 13:20 May God bless and keep u and ur families as we journey 2geather on this 7-day fast! Remember this is only the beginning! Yours in Christ, Pastor N. Ben

[04/11/11]   God's Love gently heals all.

[03/27/11]   The most quoted parenting principles of the Bible is found in Proverbs 22:6. If you give a child a good beginning.....the positive influence will remain with them for life! (Key Word!!! POSITIVE)

[03/23/11]   When you mount up, you are being lifted by the wind of his Spirit...when you move ahead, you are sensitive to his timing... when you act, you give yourself only to the things He has asked you to do.

[03/05/11]   Making life less difficult for others is to be encouraged. Creating happiness for others is to be rewarded....

[02/22/11]   There's power in a word spoken at just the right moment.

[01/18/11]   Worry may be a sign that you're trying to manage what isn't yours. So you ask yourself, Is this my work or is it someone else's? If it's your work, you do it with joy. If it's not, You let it go! And call upon the One Presence and Power, by putting your trust in God! You can let go and let God!- Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me.-John 14:1 Have a Bless Week!!!

[01/11/11]   Each morning is a sacred opportunity to begin life anew. Before I rise, I spend a moment in appreciation of and reverence for life. The fact that I've awakened tells me that life has yet another opportunity for me. Though we may be of different paths, we are all expressions of God.-But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn. which shines brighter and brighter until full day.-Proverbs 4:18 N Ben....

[01/09/11]   As always our Pastor( Rev N Ben) was there with his walker ready to do God's deed, in the rain and cold weather, he was there, thank you Pastor for that beautiful message "2 Corinthians 5:12-21" Topic: IT'S ABOUT THE LORD!

[01/05/11]   There is only ONE POWER in the universe. It is GOD, the GOOD. No entity, person or situation has the power to negate the goodness of God. God is present in all and through all....-Overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the leader of the synagogue, "Do not fear, only believe."-Mark 5:36 I BELIEVE.....Rev N Ben

[12/08/10]   You do not need to see your feet in order to walk; you need only have FAITH that your feet are there.

[11/25/10]   Says from our house to "YOURS" Have a Happy Happy THANKSGIVING and may God always keep and bless YOU!!! Rev Norris Ben

[11/13/10]   Even the simplest act of kindness has the power to transform an unpleasant experience, making the world a better place. Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life and honor.-Proverbs 21:21

[10/13/10]   Knowing a fancy stitch is of little use if one does not know how to draw thread through the needle.....N other words Quoting the BIBLE is of little use if one does not LIVE buy the WORDS of the BIBLE!

[10/10/10]   OCTOBER IS PASTORS APPRECITATION MONTH: Show love for your Pastor!

[09/01/10]   Heavenly Father, we are thankful for Your mighty armor You have provided for us.
