Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at Manahawkin Baptist Church


STAFFORD, NJ - Manahawkin Baptist Church is led by Pastor Nathan Didlake.  Pastor Didlake invites the community to join them this Christmas Eve at 7 pm.  Manahawkin Baptist Church is located at the corner of Hilliard Blvd and Beach Avenue in Manahawkin.  

MBC has served families on the Jersey Shore for more than 260 years. We’ve seen it all. Nothing you face will surprise us because, like you, we are works in progress.

We are a group which believes in the grace of Jesus Christ, and we find Jesus to be so rich as a resource that it is joyful for us to seek Him deeply.

We're a church for the whole family. The children’s ministry is caring, fun and builds character in kids. Middle school and high school students meet in their own communities of worship, learning and service — and have been known to get a little crazy once in awhile. 

MBC is a guy’s kind of church. Men learn practical ways to use their skills to serve and lead their families and community. Women find MBC the kind of place that understands their needs to find space to connect with God and with other women who also are juggling life, work and family. 

We are a flawed community, stained by sin and problems. Yet, together, we enjoy God and His kindness. Wherever you are in life, we believe you can be very happy at MBC.

Join us for worship each Sunday at 10 a.m. And by all means, visit our website to see what else we have to offer!
