Parking at NCBC: Construction materials are now on site for the building of our Family Life Center. As a result, we ask that you please park on the north side (HWY 210) of the Sanctuary. As much as possible, let's avoid the south side of the parking lot where construction materials have been placed. This will help ensure our safety! Thanks for your cooperation.
Summer Worship Schedule: One Worship Service at 11am inside our sanctuary with sanitizing and social distancing procedures.

Stay tuned for the next Ellington Youth Night date and time.

Vacation Bible School: After much prayer and conversation with parents of our children, we have made the decision to postpone VBS originally scheduled for July 26-31 due to the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 virus. Mrs. Nikki and our team are working on a fall contingency date where we hope to either hold either a weekend VBS (Friday-Sunday) or a one day VBS on a Saturday. Stay tuned for future announcements.

Buddy Backpack Help: The Buddy Backpack Ministry packs backpacks with food items for hungry children in local elementary schools to take home with them for the weekend. Children are recommended for this food assistance ministry by teachers, guidance counselors, and social workers. In partnership with other local churches, Neill's Creek Baptist takes one Friday morning a month (8:30am) to pack approximately 150 back-packs and distribute to local elementary schools. This vital ministry is in need of additional volunteers from NCBC for the once a month Friday morning packing and distribution of the backpacks. The packing location is Angier Baptist Church's multipurpose building. To volunteer to help, please contact Mrs. Frances Johnson.
Community Outreach: Save the Dates! The Outreach Team needs your help to engage our community.
