Coming Events and Opportunities

*************************************************************


Ellington Youth Night:  Ellington Youth Night held each month at Ellington Studios.  This is a great opportunity for Youth to have fun on a Friday night and hear a good message.  Whether you're attending for the first time, encouraging your youth to go, or getting your youth to bring a friend, this is a wonderful time of fun and fellowship.​ The next Youth Night will be held on October 26th from 7-9 pm.


A Call To Fasting & Prayer: We concluded our Sermon Series on Fasting on Sunday, October 7th with an opportunity to commit to fast from October 7-13. During this week, all church members are asked to prayerfully consider engaging in some form of a week long fast. Also, during that same week everyone is encouraged to engage in two 24 hr fasts from something else. Now is the time to begin thinking, planning, and prayerfully considering what God would lead you to fast from during that week.


New Believers Class: There is an exciting new Sunday school class covering information on how to live as a new or renewed Christian. The class will help you learn how to live in ways that both please and honor God, each week exploring a different aspect of the Christian life. Offered on two levels, one class will reach grades 2-6 and another will reach teens and adults. Both newly baptized and those interested in going back to basics are invited. If interested, please reach out to Sarah Lemons or Kat Tinsley. (15 week class from 9/9 - 12/23)


LADIES' BIBLE STUDY IS BACK!! We will embark on The Quest with Judy Adams on Thursdays at 9 am (7-week class). If you were not signed up before and need a book, please contact Kat Tinsley.


Fifth Sunday Offering: On the 5th Sundays during 2018, we are encouraging everyone at NCBC to make a financial gift to the building expansion fund in an amount with a "5". Your gift may be $5, $15, $50, or $500. Please prayerfully consider what God would have you to give and let's have 100% participation in giving toward our Building Expansion Fund. Remaining fifth Sundays: Dec. 30th.


Join Sunday 2018: Homecoming Sunday Oct. 21, 2018 will be emphasized as a special day to join the church for those who have been attending regularly but have not taken the official step of membership. We encourage anyone who would fall into that category to seriously pray about this important step. Church membership still matters as an important gesture symbolizing commitment and unity in the mission God has for the Light on the Hill. All church members are also assigned a family deacon, which helps the pastor to minister to and provide care for the congregation. Anyone who has questions about joining NCBC is encouraged to make an appointment with Pastor Chris before 10/21.


238th Homecoming Celebration: Sunday, Oct. 21st. We will not have Sunday School. Our guest speaker will be Rev. Jeff Roberts. The morning worship service will begin at 11:00am and a covered dish meal will follow the service. Please join us on this exciting day!


Fellowship Hall Expansion Project: Those wishing to contribute money towards the fellowship hall renovation and expansion project may make a designated gift to the "Facilities Expansion Fund". If writing a check, please make it to the church and designate Facilities Expansion Fund in the memo line. If giving cash, please write Facilities Expansion Fund on the envelope. ​


NCBC Tree of Life: Each Leaf can be purchased at a minimum donation of $250.00. The leaf can be engraved in honor/in memory of a person or with a personal message. If you have already purchased a leaf, please give your information to Patsy Edwards 919-235-2850.


Collecting Items for the Homeless: John Johnson and Larry Alexander, volunteer chaplains at Central Harnett Hospital, are collecting blankets, coats, and sweatshirts (in good condition) of all sizes to distribute to the homeless. A collection bin will be placed outside the church office for any donations.
